This article focuses on various studies related to gastrointestinal diseases. One study is "Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Refractory Crohn's Disease," by Y. Oyama, R.M. Craig, and A.E. Traynor. This study reports an extended series of 12 refractory Crohn's patients undergoing autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation, confirming that this procedure can result in rapid engraftment and low toxicity. Another study is "Recovery From DSM-IV Alcohol Dependence: United States, 2001-2002," by D.A. Dason, B.F. Grant, and E.S. Stinson.
