Galesanu Corina , Loghin Andra Iulia , Grozavu Ilinka , Apostu Luminita , Ungureanu Didona , Galesanu Mihail Romeo

Background: GH therapy is being used worldwide to improve height outcome in children with GH deficiency (GHD), with minimal serious side effects. Early diagnosis and therapy initiation optimize growth outcomes.Objectives: To evaluate growth and safety during the first 4 years of GH treatment in 33 GHD children.Methods: We reviewed clinical data of 33 prepubertal children (23 boys and ten girls): 30 with isolated GH deficiency (IGHD...

Growth pattern of the nigerian child compared to international references

Elusiyan Jerome , Ibekwe MaryAnn Ugochi , Alkali Y , Agwu J. Chizo

Background: There are currently no specific growth charts for use in Nigerian children over the age of 5 years. Health workers rely on charts developed by the Center for Disease Control for children in USA (2000CDC US) or the UK 1990 growth charts for British children. It is unknown whether Nigerian children grow to the same height or at the same tempo as American or British children.Objective and hypotheses: To compare the growth of the Nigerian child t...

Evaluation of Potential Waste of GH Across Available GH Pen Devices and an Electronic GH Delivery Device

Locklear JC , Edwards NC , Phillips AL

Background: Several somatropin products are available as pen and electronic devices. When administering the last dose from a device, patients may have an insufficient amount of GH remaining for a full dose.Objective and hypotheses: The aim of this analysis was to estimate the potential GH waste per patient with pen devices and the easypod® device, and to quantify the potential economic impact of expected GH waste from patient and health c...

Descriptive Analysis of Medication Adherence for Patients Treated with GH Therapy

Michels S L , Uribe C , Li Y , Meletiche D M , Velez F F , Locklear J C

Background: GH deficiency (GHD) occurs in one in 4000–one in 10 000 children, but can also be diagnosed in adults.1 GHD therapy typically requires injections over a period of years.2 Adherence to long-term GHT presents a challenge.Objective and hypotheses: This study describes the rates of adherence to GHT among patients with GHD.Method: Members who were continuously enrolled 6 months pre- and 12 months p...

Effect of Cyanotic and Acyanotic Congenital Heart Disease on Placental and Birth Size

Soliman Ashraf , Shatlah Emad , Sabt Aml , Alyafei Fawzia , Alqadi Mohanad

Background: Abnormal cardiac development leading to CHD can be associated with abnormal placental development with abnormal trophoblast invasion and remodeling resulting in abnormal transfer of nutrients and oxygen.Objective and hypotheses: We measured the anthropometric parameters (length, weight, and head circumference) and the placental weight of 49 FT newborns (gestation period >36 weeks) infants with CHD ((cyanotic (n=8) and acyanotic (...

Anthropometric Evaluation of a Cohort of School-Aged Children: the Need for National Growth References in Romania

Pop Raluca-Monica , Pascanu Ionela , Pop Marian

Background: For children above 5 years of age no specific national growth charts are available in our country, the most widely used being the Swiss ones (Prader, 1989). Previous studies have shown significant differences between the various international standards available regarding. The incidence of growth disorders.Objective and hypotheses: Our aim was to compare the recommended growth reference with a new one based on a national representative sample...

Differences in Personality of Monozygotic Twins can be Predicted by Difference in Birth Weight in Teen Monozygotic Twins

Wimmer Lioba , Woelfle Joachim , Bartmann Peter , Schulte Sandra , Gohlke Bettina

Background: Low birth weight and unfavourable intrauterine conditions are associated with long-term effects on life. The influence of intrauterine conditions on personality might be underestimated.Objective and hypotheses: In a longitudinal study we followed genetically identical twins with intra-twin birth-weight (bw) differences due to twin–twin transfusion syndrome (ttts) from birth until puberty.Method: 23 pairs of monozyg...

The Growth Speed of Late Pretem Infants Aged 1 Year

Qian Cheng

Background and aims: The physical growth of late preterm infants (LPI) is unknown, to investigate the growth of LPIs to provide the basis for growth evaluation of LPI.Methods: Infants were recruited for a cohort study in Department of Primary Child Health Care, Children’s Hospital, Chongqing Medical University from May 2010 to November 2011. LPI and full term infants (FTI) were compared in terms of weight for age Z-scores (WAZ), length for ...
