58th Annual ESPE

Vienna, Austria
19 Sep 2019 - 21 Sep 2019

The theme of this year’s meeting is Variety and Variation in Paediatric Endocrinology. Join us in Vienna to explore the diversity we encounter in our discipline and the care that we have to exercise when using the term “normality”. Whilst gaining an update on the latest treatments, clinical best practice and cutting edge research in the field of paediatric endocrinology.

Germline-Derived Gain-of-Function Variants of Gsα-Coding GNAS Gene Identified in Nephrogenic Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis: The First Report

Background: The stimulatory G-protein α-subunit encoded by GNAS exons 1–13 (GNAS-Gsα) mediates signal transductions of multiple G-protein-coupled receptors including arginine vasopressin (AVP) receptor 2 (AVPR2). To date, various germline-derived loss-of-function variants of maternal and paternal origin have been found in pseudohypoparathyroidism type Ia and pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism respectively, and specific somatic gain...

CFTR Loss-of-Function has Effects on microRNAs (miRNAs) that Regulate Genes Involved in Growth, Glucose Metabolism and in Fertility in in vitro Models of Cystic Fibrosis

Cirillo Francesca , Catellani Cecilia , Graziano Sara , Montanini Luisa , Smerieri Arianna , Lazzeroni Pietro , Sartori Chiara , Marmiroli Nelson , Amarri Sergio , Gullì Mariolina , Elisabeth Street Maria

Cystic Fibrosis (CF), is due to CF-transmembrane-conductance-regulator (CFTR) loss-of-function. Significant heterogeneity exists between patients, suggesting potential epigenetic regulation, and comorbidities develop with time. MiRNAs are non-coding RNAs that act as epigenetic regulators. Although many studies have focused on the role for miRNAs in regulating CFTR gene expression, little attention has been given to how CFTR influences their expression and how this affects grow...

Variability in Drug Metabolizing Cytochrome P450 Activities Caused by Human Genetic Variations in NADPH Cytochrome P450 Oxidoreductase (POR)

Velazquez Maria Natalia Rojas , Parween Shaheena , Pandey Amit V

Background: A broad spectrum of human diseases, including abnormalities in steroidogenesis, are caused by mutations in the NADPH cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase (POR) (1-2). Cytochrome P450 proteins perform several reactions, including metabolism of steroids, drugs and other xenobiotics. Therefore, genetic variations in POR can impact many different metabolic pathways by changing the activities of cytochromes P450 (1). In 2004 the first human patients with defe...

Droplet Digital PCR is a Useful Method for Detection of Mosaic Mutations in Patients with McCune-Albright Syndrome

Watanabe Satoshi , Dateki Sumito , Moriuchi Hiroyuki , Yoshiura Koh-ichiro

Introduction: McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) is caused by somatic mosaic mutations in the GNAS gene. Detection of the GNAS mutations is usually difficult because of the low frequency mosaicism. Droplet digital polymerase chain reaction (ddPCR) is a new technology that enables to measure absolute quantities of target nucleic acids in a sample by counting nucleic acid molecules encapsulated in discrete water-in-oil droplet partitions.<p cla...

Evaluation of Endocrine Late Effects in Survivors of Childhood Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in Australia – Database from 1985 to 2011

Lai-Ka Lee Samantha , Tiedemann Karin , Zacharin Margaret

Background: With improved survival of childhood allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT), there is increasing need for surveillance, including assessment of endocrine late effects in this cohort1,2.Aim: To evaluate endocrine late effects after chemotherapy and radiation in survivors of childhood allogeneic HSCT.Methods: Multi-site evaluation via medical recor...

Severe Infections Contribute to Increased Risk of Early Death in Patients with Apeced

Borchers Joonatan , Mäkitie Outi , Laakso Saila

Introduction: Autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy (APECED) is a rare autosomal recessive disease that is characterized by a combination of various endocrinopathies and other autoimmune disease components. Few longitudinal studies have shown a decreased life expectancy in APECED. However, knowledge on mortality and causes of death in patients with APECED is scarce.Objective: Our aim was to descr...
