The AGA Journals Blog highlights the latest discoveries in gastroenterology and hepatology research.

Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) proudly presents a special collection to celebrate the journal’s 15th year of publication. This collection comprises landmark articles chosen by the CGH Board of Editors for their contributions to science and the practice of gastroenterology and hepatology.

The 15th anniversary collection includes commentaries from authors on select groundbreaking original research articles. In these, authors describe how their research area has evolved since their original article was published. Topics covered include the diagnosis of autoimmune pancreatitis, treatment and prevalence of eosinophilic esophagitis, the association between pharmacokinetic features of adalimumab and mucosal healing in patients with IBD, and results of a phase 2 trial of allogeneic mesenchymal stromal cells in patients with Crohn’s disease.

CGH also celebrates its highly cited reviews on hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma, and a systematic review of the association between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and risk for hepatocellular carcinoma.
