Three years of resolute weightlifting had not gone as planned for this scrawny 18-year-old. But it was 1980 and a legal prescription for the magic elixir, anabolic steroids, was just $20. Now he would transform himself while away at college and return home with trophy-winning strength and a body like a Greek god—a Charles Atlas magazine ad come to life. That didn’t go quite as planned either. This revealing memoir recounts an athlete’s experiences with performance enhancing drugs at a time when the public and law enforcement knew little about them. Venturing into the “steroid underground,” the author used and sold them, was featured in muscle magazines, went under a surgeon’s knife and faced interrogation by a federal marshal.

The achievements in medical, surgical, and in the basic sciences in the last twenty years since the first Jerusalem IBD Symposium are summarized in detail. Controversies with respect to the medical treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases are discussed. One section deals with surgical issues such as laparoscopic surgery in inflammatory bowel diseases, ileo-anal pouches and the surgical treatment of Crohn's disease.

The management of Crohn's disease is still a challenge due to the complexity of therapeutical decision-making, which has recently become even more difficult because of novel biological therapies. Thus, criteria to assess the appropriateness of therapeutical options are called for. One well-accepted method is the RAND Appropriateness Method, integrating a systematic review of the medical literature with personal experience of experts in the field. The so found appropriateness criteria may then serve as a basis for guidelines concerning therapy and to assist individual clinicians in their treatment choices. Aiming to apply the RAND Appropriateness Method approach to the treatment of Crohn's disease, the European Panel on the Appropriateness of Crohn's Disease Therapy has been organized under the auspices of the European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation. The publication at hand presents the literature reviews produced for the purpose of the panel, whose 15 experts have evaluated them in depth. They focus, among other things, on drug safety, severe and steroid resistant Crohn's disease, extra intestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease, maintenance of remission or pregnancy and Crohn's disease. Discussing a multitude of issues connected with Crohn's disease, this publication offers the practicing physician a wealth of information for his daily work.
