Digestive ailment Week-Japan (DDW-Japan) used to be held effectively in Yokohama April 15-18, 1998, below the administration of Prof. Yoshiki Hiki, Chairman of the steerage Committee. DDW-Japan was once performed with the cooperation and participa­ tion of gastroenterological societies in Japan. as the participat­ ing congresses every one handled themes attribute of specific fields, all individuals may well take pleasure in a lucrative adventure and will assemble appropriate, updated information regarding a large choice of topics in uncomplicated and medical medication. Prof. Rikiya Fujita, Chairman of the diplomacy Com­ mittee, deliberate and carried out the foreign Symposium operating including researchers from international international locations, hence making DDW­ Japan in 1998 an excellent luck.

As we know, the realm quickly goes to go into the 3rd millen­ nium. accordingly, remedies and drugs shouldn't be restricted to any unmarried state or small quarter; as an alternative, scientific wisdom needs to be shared as a world source, with out regard to nationality, lifestyle, or social approach. i am hoping that this monograph will playa worthwhile position within the boost­ ment of gastroenterology world wide, and that i greatly appre­ ciate the great contribution of all authors for this publication.

Positive-Strand RNA Viruses

Positive-strand RNA viruses comprise the vast majority of the plant viruses, a couple of insect viruses, and animal viruses, reminiscent of coronaviruses, togaviruses, flaviviruses, poliovirus, hepatitis C, and rhinoviruses. Works from greater than 50 prime laboratories characterize most modern study on thoughts for the regulate of virus illnesses: molecular elements of pathogenesis and virulence; genome replication and transcription; RNA recombination; RNA-protein interactions and host-virus interactions; protein expression and virion maturation; RNA replication; virus receptors; and virus constitution and meeting.

Biomedical Advances in Aging

The VIIIth Annual overseas Spring Symposium on wellbeing and fitness Sciences held on the George Washington college institution of drugs in Washington, D.

Similarly, in chronic hepatitis B, the outcome measure of HBV DNA negativity is gaining increased acceptance, especially in assessing the effect of new nucleoside analogues [11-13]. Such a development appears logical and is facilitated by the advent of laboratory methods that can measure the hepatitis virus qualitatively (present or absent). In the event of a negative test the concept of viral clearance emerges; in the event of viral clearance the concept of cure [7] arises. While viral clearance and cure are noble conceptual aims of therapy, the question remains as to which surrogate marker is a Department of Hepatogastroenteroiogy, Erasmus University Hospital, Dijkzigt, PO Box 2040, 3000 CA Rotterdam, The Netherlands *This manuscript has been published before in Hepatologia Clinica (1998) 6 (suppl1):85-91.

Nonvariceal Upper GI Bleeding 35 Injection Therapy Injection sclerotherapy of esophageal varices has been shown to be relatively safe and effective in the control of bleeding esophageal varices. This technique has been expanded to include nonvariceal bleeding lesions. Injection therapy is simple, inexpensive, and readily available, and it can be performed at the time of diagnostic endoscopy. 9%).
