Molecular biology has become an integral part of basic and clinical gastroenterology. A broad spectrum of infectious, inherited and malignant gastrointestinal diseases can now be studied by molecular methods, including polymerase chain reaction, hybridization and DNA sequence analyses. Recent progress in the molecular analysis of Whipple's disease and colorectal cancer, two major problems in clinical gastroenterology.

    Genetics have led to an increased understanding of the genetic determinants of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Currently recognized clinical indications for genetic testing covers diagnostic testing, presymptomatic testing, new-born screening, carrier testing, prenatal testing, and pharamacogenetic testing.

Gastrointestinal Immunology mainly focus on differentiation of gut-associated lymphoid tissue, regulation of innate and adaptive immune cell differentiation and function, genetic and epigenetic factors regulating immune responses and inflammation. It also gives idea about the clinical research, clinical trials and epidemiology studies on gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases including but not limited to gluten-sensitive enteropathy, inflammatory bowel disease, and gastritis, malabsorption syndromes, diarrhea, gastric and duodenal ulcers and disease of the salivary glands excluding cystic fibrosis.

Gastrointestinal Pathology is sub discipline of surgical Pathology. It deals with the analysis and exposure of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the digestive tract and accessory organs, such as the pancreas and liver.

Though pathology diagnosis is a critical determinant of future cancer risk and screening interval, many of these diagnoses do not result in significant morbidity or mortality for patients; thus, errors may be "masked" by the limited effect to the patient in the present context.

The diagnosis often requires endoscopy, pursued by biopsy of suspicious tissue. The treatment depends on the location of the tumour, as well as the type of cancer cell and whether it has invaded other tissues or spread elsewhere, these factors also determine the prognosisEsophageal cancer is the sixth-most-common cancer in the world, and its incidence is increasing.

Barium studies of the gastrointestinal tract, enteroclysis for small-bowel assessment, and conventional radiography still have a role, despite the extensive use of fiberoptic endoscopy.

Gastrointestinal motility is characterized by the movements of the digestive system, and the transit of the contents within it. Gastrointestinal Disorder is the disorder related to gastrointestinal tract namely the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum, and the accessory organs of digestion, the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Gastrointestinal disorders include such conditions as constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, perianal abscesses, anal fistulas, perianal infections, diverticular diseases, colitis, colon polyps and cancer. Many of these can be prevented or minimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, practicing good bowel habits, and submitting to cancer screening.

Gastrointestinal disorders research remains severely underfunded. Less than 1% of digestive disease research funding, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is allocated for functional disorders.

Pancreas produces juices that help break down food and hormones that help control blood sugar levels. Problems with the pancreas can lead to many health problems like pancreatitis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and pancreatic cancer.

The pancreas additionally assumes a part in diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas never again make insulin in light of the fact that the body's resistant framework has assaulted them. In type2 diabetes, the pancreas loses the capacity to emit enough insulin.

It not only affects the small and large intestine but also affects the mouth, oesophagus, stomach and the anus.

The following symptoms are abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and severe internal cramps/muscle spasms in the region of the pelvis and weight loss. Diagnosis is generally by assessment of inflammatory markers in stool followed by colonoscopy with biopsy of pathological lesions.

A typical type of liver ailment is viral contamination. Viral hepatitis, for example, Hepatitis B infection and Hepatitis C infection can be vertically transmitted amid birth by means of contact with contaminated blood.

A number of liver function tests (LFTs) are now available to test the proper function of the liver. Anti-viral medications are available to treat infections such as hepatitis B. Other conditions may be managed by slowing down disease progression.

The gastrointestinal diseases require treatment, pharmacological treatment are divided into 2 categories- the prescription drugs and Over the Counter (OTC) drugs. Gastrointestinal drugs are prescribed based on the diagnostic results yielded during the haematological or imaging tests. The most common diagnosis is done through endoscopy. The therapies are recommended based on gastrointestinal tract disorders, gastrointestinal tract walls disorders, gastrointestinal motility disorders, gastrointestinal cancers.

Probiotics are not currently regulated and only few randomized controlled trials exist investigating their efficacy in different GI disorders

Peritoneal infections are classified as primary, secondary, or tertiary. Antibiotic therapy is used to prevent local and haematogenous spread of an intra-abdominal infection and to reduce late complications. Several different antibiotic regimens are available for the treatment of intra-abdominal infections.

Obesity has become a global health problem that contributes to numerous life-threatening and disabling diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease.

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. This is done by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch. The U.S. National Institutes of Health prescribes bariatric surgery for corpulent individuals with a body mass record (BMI) of no less than 40, and for individuals with BMI of no less than 35 and genuine coinciding therapeutic conditions.

Diagnosis of this disease can be done using blood test, breath test, stool test, scope test. Treatment can be done using Proton pump inhibitors, Histamine (H-2) blockers, Bismuth subsalicylate.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most widely used drugs and their widespread use is associated with increased gastro-intestinal toxic effects such as ulceration, haemorrhage, perforation and death.

Gastroenterology has emerged from the backwoods of medical specialties only over the past 20 years. It is Because of massive improvement in the field of diagnosis and treatment. Gastroenterology has undergone binary fission into hepatology and “hollow organ” gastroenterology. Innovations in colorectal cancer screening, capsule endoscopy, cures for hepatitis C and new biologic therapies are some of the recent advances in gastroenterology.

Neurogastroenterology is the study of the brain, the gut, and their interactions with relevance to the understanding and management of gastrointestinal motility and functional gastrointestinal disorders. Precisely, neurogastroenterology targets on the functions, malfunctions, and the malformations of the sympathetic, parasympathetic, and enteric divisions of the digestive tract.

Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) was introduced as a new effective therapeutic option for esophageal achalasia.
