Evaluation of Cardiovascular Risk in Childhood: Data from a Survey of Dyslipidaemic Children

Bruzzi Patrizia , Colombini Giulia , Lucaccioni Laura , Predieri Barbara , Iughetti Lorenzo

Background: Dyslipidaemia is a well-known risk factor in developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) already in childhood.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the clustering of cardiovascular risk-factors (anthropometric parameters, blood pressure and metabolic abnormalities) in different type of dyslipidaemia in children and adolescents.Method: All the subjects aging 2–18 years referred for dyslipidaemia to our endocrine outp...

Soluble CD163, A Circulating Marker of Macrophage Activation, Associates With a Less Favourable Metabolic Profile in Children

Carreras-Badosa Gemma , Prats-Puig Anna , Diaz-Roldan Ferran , Platero-Gutierrez Estibaliz , Martinez-Calcerrada Jose-Maria , Riera-Perez Elena , de Zegher Francis , Ibanez Lourdes , Bassols Judit , Lopez-Bermejo Abel

Background: Soluble CD163 (sCD163) is shed from the cell surface into the circulation as a specific marker of macrophage activation. Macrophages are involved in low-grade inflammatory states such as obesity.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the relationships between circulating sCD163 and metabolic parameters in asymptomatic prepubertal children.Method: A population of 236 school-aged Caucasian children (111 girls and 125 bo...

Re-Classification of Childhood Obesity by Steroid Metabolomic Disease Signature

Gawlik Aneta , Shmoish Michael , Hartmann Michaela , Malecka-Tendera Ewa , Wudy Stefan , Hochberg Ze'ev

Context: Analysis of steroids by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry (GC-MS) defines a subject’s ‘steroidal fingerprint’. Here, we clustered steroidal fingerprints to classify childhood obesity by ’steroid metabolomic signatures’.Methods: Urinary samples of 87 children (44 F) age 8.5–18.0 with obesity (BMI >97%) underwent solid phase extraction, enzymatic hydrolysis and derivatization. 31 steroids metabolites wer...

RM-493, a Melanocortin-4 Receptor (MC4R) Agonist, is Being Therapeutically Evaluated in Patients with Deficiencies in the Leptin – Proopiomelanocortin (POMC) – MC4R Hypothalamic Pathway, Including Prader–Willi Syndrome (PWS)

Kuhnen Peter , Krude Heiko , Wiegand Susanna , van der Ploeg Lex , Fiedorek Fred , Hylan Michelle , Gottesdiener Keith

Background: The hypothalamic leptin–melanocortin signalling pathway is a critical regulator of human appetite and weight regulation. Monogenetic defects in the POMC gene, the MSH ligand generating PC1 gene and the MSH receptor gene MC4R lead to severe early onset and leptin-resistant obesity. In PWS, where the function of genes such as MAGEL2 are impaired, the Magel2-/- mouse model revealed decreased POMC neuronal functioning as one c...

Link Between BMI and Insulin Requirement in Children and Young People with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Upadrasta Swathi , Finnigan Lynne , Connellan Linda , Ng Sze May

Background: Prevalence of being overweight or obese is increasing in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The recent UK National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) 2013/14 reported that 36.6% of 0–11 year old children and 43.9% of 12 years and older children are currently overweight or obese. Childhood obesity in T1DM predicts long-term risk of adult diabetes complications. Previous studies have shown significant positive correlation between HbA1c and total insulin requirement ...

Initial Experience with Endoscopically Placed Duodenal–Jejunal Bypass Liner (Endobarrier) in Morbidly Obese Adolescents

Kotnik Primož , Homan Matjaž , Orel Rok , Battelino Tadej

Background: The duodenal–jejunal bypass liner (DJBL) is an endoscopically placed and removable intestinal liner that creates a duodenal–jejunal bypass. Weight loss and diabetes improvement was reported in the adults.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate clinical effects and safety of this device in severely obese adolescents with obesity complications.Method: Six morbidly obese adolescents (four female, mean age 18.2 year...
