Progress in Liver Diseases, Volume II presents the progress made in the understanding of bilirubin metabolism and secretion. This book discusses the mechanisms underlying the transport of bilirubin in the liver, intestine, and kidney. Organized into 31 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of bilirubin metabolism and secretion from the point of view of transport within the liver cell. This text then discusses the relation of hematopoietic factors and coagulation mechanisms to hepatic function. Other chapters consider the etiology of viral hepatitis. This book discusses as well the appearance of genetic considerations in liver disease, as a reflection of progress in this discipline. The final chapter deals with the effects of closer relations with other nations and of migration from foreign lands and vice-versa, which have continued the interest in geographic pathology. This book is a valuable resource for pathologists, physicians, biochemists, physiologists, clinicians, and clinical researchers.
