This book aims to provide comprehensive knowledge of colitis that covers from general pathogenesis, mechanism of resolution, and treatment strategies, to recent advances in colitis research. Knowledge provided in this book will be beneficial for not only physicians and pathologists, but also medical students, nurses, and researchers that are interested in colitis.

Section one is regarding pathophysiology of colitis. Complex mechanisms of host-commensal mutualism, development of mucosal barrier functions, and regulation of inflammatory signaling are discussed.
The second section targets infectious colitis especially amebic colitis and C. difficile associated colitis. Expertise of this area of research provides very useful information for the pathogenesis and management of these unique types of colitis.
The third section is regarding drug-induced colitis. This section particularly describes the pathogenesis and management of chemotherapy-associated colitis. Demand of treating this type of colitis may increase along with development of stronger chemotherapy agents.
The final section focuses on novel therapeutic targets and strategies for treating and/or preventing colitis. Individual chapters in these sections are contributed by renowned experts.
