Based on the results of studies on autoimmunity, the endocrine system, nutrients, metal metabolism and intestinal bacterial flora, this volume thoroughly covers studies on functional correlation of the liver with the spleen, visceral fat, intestinal tract, and central nervous system. Including associations with dysbiosis, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and hepatocellular carcinoma, it offers comprehensive data on correlations of organs with the liver from basic and clinical viewpoints. The Liver in Systemic Diseases will especially be of interest to researchers, clinical residents and medical students with an interest in hepatology and gastroenterology. Furthermore, the book has interdisciplinary appeal and provides a foundation that will help physicians to consider clinical conditions of diseases from a broader perspective.

"This book covers studies of the liver as it relates to other organs and their clinical correlations. ... In particular, researchers, trainees, and students may find this book valuable. However, any clinicians seeking a better understanding of the liver's relationship to systemic disease, perhaps as it relates to a patient case, may find this book useful. ... The quality of the book is good, and the information is interesting and useful in the right setting." (Nicole E. Pisapia, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2017)
