Research description

Research in gastroenterology and hepatology focuses on diseases that affect the stomach, intestines and liver. The field covers many common diseases including gallstones, inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, liver diseases such as hepatitis C, alcoholic liver disease and "stomach ache" in general.

Some of Rolf Hultcrantz's research centres upon the increasing problems of fatty liver, hepatitis and cirrhosis in which there is a clear association with the increase in obesity.
