Biomechanics of the gastrointestinal tract
The physiological and clinical importance of acquiring biomechanical data, distensibility parameters and interpretation of these results and their associated errors are discussed and several techniques to study the mechanical properties of the GI tract are outlined.

Impedance planimetry was used to determine whether a sub-group of patients with unexplained noncardiac chest pain has abnormal biomechanical esophageal muscle properties and abnormal esphageal sensory nerve function.
The functional lumen imaging probe (FLIP) for evaluation of the esophagogastric junction.
The FLIP method can be used practically to evaluate difficult cases of EGJ dysfunction and may provide a role in evaluating patients before and after therapies for diseases affecting the EGJ such as achalasia and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Differential regulation of VSMC functions under two-dimensional conditions in vitro or three-dimensional co-culture conditions in vivo emphasizes the need to construct more actual environments for future research on vascular diseases and cardiovascular tissue engineering.
Biomechanical and morphometric intestinal remodelling during experimental diabetes in rats
It was found that the circumferential and longitudinal stiffness of the intestinal wall increased with the duration of diabetes, and morphological and biomechanical remodelling of the small intestine occurred during the development of diabetes.

Chinese health care system and clinical epidemiology
The Chinese health care system and its implication for medical research, especially within clinical epidemiology research is reviewed, and the construction of the Chinese health information system as well as several existing registers and research projects on health data are described.
