Open Access papers in Nature Reviews on functional dyspepsia

"Functional dyspepsia is one of the most common functional gastrointestinal disorders worldwide. Although the condition does not affect life expectancy, it can have a marked influence on quality of life, and is associated with a high economic burden; an estimated US$1 billion per year is spent on the management of functional dyspepsia in the USA alone. This comprehensive Focus issue from Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology contains seven Reviews that have been specially commissioned to cover key themes in functional dyspepsia. Experts from around the world provide up-to-date overviews of the most important topics in the field, including the influence of dietary, lifestyle and psychosocial factors, relevance of Helicobacter pylori infection, overlap with GERD, changes in gastrointestinal tract structure and function, symptom pattern and validity of the Rome III criteria, as well as current and emerging treatment options."
