UPMC Digest Fall 2012

In this issue, we highlight the clinical and research work of faculty and fellows interested in the broad topic of nutrition. John Scherer, MD, discusses a complex hepatobiliary case linked to diet. Julia B. Greer, MD, MPH, provides clear information on healthy eating for physicians to pass on to their patients. UPMC Digest editor Toby O. Graham, MD, provides an update on issues in clinical nutrition, and Stephen O’Keefe, MD, MSc, outlines his fascinating research on the effects of diet on colon cancer development. New faculty member, Joshua Novak, MD, highlights the use of percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy tubes for those who cannot eat and may have a risk of aspiration or other complications. Two more educational cases also are included. Elizabeth Blaney, MD, presents an interesting endoscopic unknown image, and Charles Gabbert, MD, presents a great case of a woman with a complex neuroendocrine tumor.
