About this book


The articles in Issue 4 of Journal of Inherited Metabolic Disease, Vol. 14 (1991) contain the main lectures presented at the 28th Annual Symposium of the Society for the Study of Inborn Errors of Metabolism, Birmingham, UK, 1990, which was dedicated to `The Liver and Inherited Metabolic Disease' with a half-day workshop on `Screening and Economics'.
The subjects covered include metabolic functions of the liver, bile acids, alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, tyrosinaemia type I, Crigler-Najjar disease type I and Niemann-Pick disease type C, providing updates on a wide range of metabolic disorders and illustrating the importance of the complementary contributions from professionals in different disciplines. Also covered in detail is the exciting potential of liver transplantation as treatment for several inborn errors of metabolism.
This state-of-the-art review will be of interest to clinicians and research workers alike.
