GastroHep, or GH, at its inception 5 years ago, started as an independent website for gastroenterology.

GH is as an informative and educational tool for practitioners, nurses, specialists and even patients, with the latest gastroenterology news and information.

The first GastroHep news story was published on 19 July 2000, reporting on the high annual H pylori infection rate of endoscopists as noted in the British Medical Journal.

This was followed by a news item from the New England Journal of Medicine on a study in the USA, showing that colonoscopy is more effective than sigmoidoscopy in detecting advanced colonic neoplasms in asymptomatic men.

The Lancet was also referenced at this time, reporting that tumor response to chemotherapy predicts survival in advanced colorectal cancer.

And so the stream of the latest news, findings and research on matters regarding Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy continued on a daily basis.

Since that time, a further 3699 stories have been published, including today's selection!

News topics covered vary from practice guidelines, treatment of Gastroenterology diseases or symptoms, and new developments or advances in interventions.

5 years Gastrohep.com

Top journals in Surgery, Gastroenterology, Endoscopy, Hepatology, General Medicine and Nutrition are referenced.

These journals are representative internationally and the articles are accessible to subscribers.

Of these journals, 29 listed are Gastroenterology Journals, and 6 are specialist Hepatology Journals.

GH also lists 4 top Endoscopy journals, 5 in Nutrition, 15 in General Surgery, 3 in Oncology, and 9 in General Medicine.

Slides of various procedures or diseases related to Gastroenterology, and other educational tools such quiz questions, are updated daily on the website.

In addition, the site contains information on published books and text books, and the latest issues in gastroenterology affecting policy in the form of soapboxes.

There are also links to reviews, abstracts, meta-analyses, relevant national/international societies as well as upcoming conferences.

And most interestingly, the website provides access to the Editorial Board members' and Global Faculty profiles…

...where you learn about intimate details such as the latest car they are driving, or which novel currently consumes their time.

Professor Roy Pounder, Editor-in-Chief of Gastrohep, comments, “The 5 years have flown by, best measured by the 3699 news stories that we have published.”

“I think we can also claim to be the longest-running independent website in Gastroenterology, and the future is rosy.”

“In the coming year we shall finally introduce streaming video, and sound-and-vision powerpoint lectures."

Happy Birthday GastroHep! Best wishes, The News Editor
