This volume discusses the etiology of diarrhea, host-defense mechanisms and the latest preventive measures. Internationally-known speakers collaborate to compile this exciting volume about the epidemiology, transmission, etiology and pathogenesis of diarrheal disease, as well as its nutritional dimensions, management, complications and prevention, including the latest developments in vaccination against infectious diarrhea. Special attention was given to persistent diarrhea and gastrointestinal infections in children with AIDS because of their increasing importance. Presentations about inflammatory bowel disease and other causes of prolonged diarrhea, which are more common in children from industrialized countries, bring balance and worldwide perspective to the discussions.
