On the subject of stomach and gastric diseases, current cli- nical, morphological, pharmacological, biochemical as well as cellular and molecularbiological aspects will be presen- ted. The articles of the first part of this book will discuss the normal functions of the stomach (such as motility, secre- tion, tissue regeneration etc.). The second part deals with pathophysiological aspects (such as inflammation, ulceration and tumor formation) and modern possibilities of treatment. The authors aim at gaining a deeper knowledge of the sto- mach, its physiology and pathophysiology in order to use this knowledge for the better of their patients.
