...this comprehensive overview has a very practical and down-to-earth perspective that should appeal to a wide audience...the real strength of the book is a number of chapters devoted to practical aspects of the management of chronic viral hepatitis." - The New England Journal of Medicine It covers all important areas about this disease and has many fine qualities. The book does a remarkable job of presenting knowledge about chronic hepatitis of viral etiology to a general internal medicine audience...The purpose is to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the field of chronic viral hepatitis, with a focus on epidemiology, natural history, the problem of co-infections, and treatment. The objectives are worthy of publication and do not duplicate recent book publications. The authors fully meet the objectives...The book is comprehensive yet not cumbersome and introduces the reader to a wide range of disciplines. Internists and gastroenterologists will reap great rewards from reading this book, but several chapters of the book also reach out to a larger audience...The editing is good, and the text is lucid, succinct, and comprehensive. There is even an interesting chapter on alternative medicine and treatment of chronic hepatitis. This comprehensive approach to patient's health is generally typical of the book and is one of the features that make it stand out...this excellent book effectively summarizes all the current topics pertinent to chronic hepatitis B and C. - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal Drs. Koff and Wu set out to construct a contemporary comprehensive overview of the field of chronic viral hepatitis. They gathered together 16 well-researched, well-written chapters by 14 preeminent senior hepatologists, and 16 associates. References are abundant, and emphasis on higher quality published research is employed throughout. - Practical Gastroenterology Chronic Viral Hepatitis is another valuable guide to the proper care of patients with chronic viral hepatitis. The real strength of the book is a number of chapters devoted to practical aspects of the management of chronic viral hepatitis. These chapters cover not only general, up-to-date guidelines for therapy, but also the development of individualized therapeutic plans, the medical support of patients during treatment, and the care of patients who have coexisting extrahepatic illnesses or who are pregnant.
