Haque’s DIGEST is a monthly literature review that includes selected journal articles on research and development in gastroenterology. The DIGEST is compiled by Mahfuzul Haque, MD, professor of medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology and shared with Duke GI faculty and fellows as a way to stay on top of current research. It is circulated nationally and internationally to more than a thousand GI professionals and institutions. Articles in the DIGEST, which typically have a clinical focus, are selected by Dr. Haque and do not reflect a comprehensive survey of the literature.​
