Classic Papers in Peptic Ulcer

£29.99

Product description

"The more things change, the more they remain the same. This could be the cynic's view of the development of concepts relating to the diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of peptic ulcer. The collection of scientific communications contained in these two volumes, dealing with these aspects of ulcer disease and covering a span of some 260 years from 1727 to the present, should change all but the most hardened cynic's attitude."

"Chance favours the informed mind. The panorama of ideas and discoveries in the pages which follow will inform and stimulate all gastroenterologists interested in ulcer disease, which, despite all advances, still provides a large workload and a range of unsolved clinical and scientific problems. The papers included in these volumes are necessarily but a small section of the available literature. However each through its bibliography provides an entry to the related literature.

As a record of international scientific achievement it is impressive, and if it provokes new ideas or insight, the effort will have been eminently worthwhile."

This two volume book is in near fine condition, with clean, unmarked pages, but very slight marking to the green hardback covers.
Index to both volumes at the end of volume two.
