Measurement of 11-oxo-androgens, a novel biomarker, in females with clinical signs of premature adrenarche.

Blinov Beatriz , Saenger Paul , Akerman Meredith , Gabriel Liana

Introduction: Adrenarche is characterized by the activation of androgen precursors which are released from the zona reticularis of the adrenal gland. Dehydroepiandosterone (DHEA) is a weak androgen and its conversion to slightly more potent androgens such as Dehydroepiandosterone- sulfate (DHEA-S) is thought to be responsible for the clinical signs of adrenarche. Premature adrenarche is one of the most common endocrine abnormalities causing concern among perip...

Association Between Non-invasive Diagnostic Methods of Liver Fibrosis and Type 2 Diabetes in Pediatric Patients With Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Yang Aram , Lee Ji-Eun , Kim Jinsup

Background and Purpose: The prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children has been increasing associated with insulin resistance. However, there is a scarcity of related studies in children with NAFLD with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) compared to adults. We conducted this study to investigate the association between non-invasive diagnostic methods of liver fibrosis and T2DM in pediatric patients with NAFLD.<stron...

Nahum Andrea , Alexandrou Demitra

*Both authors contributed equally to this workBackground: Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusions (CSII) or insulin pumps improve overall glycaemic control in paediatric populations. Children’s access to CSII may partly depend on socioeconomic status (SES), healthcare systems, and funding structures.Aim: The aim of our systematic review was to evaluate whether SES affects children’s a...

Genetic Variations in Early Onset Obesity: Experience from southern California

Bhangoo Amrit , Kashmiri Himala , Kadakia Sejal , Dremainep Daina

Introduction: Early onset of obesity has very severe consequences for the rest of the life which leads to morbid obesity as adults, dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea and fatty liver disease. Recently, various genetic panels have been available and are quickly becoming a standard of care to screen children with genetic panel for obesity. However, most of these variations in ethnically diverse populations have not been extensively studie...

Circulating GDF15 Concentrations in Girls with Low Birth Weight and Precocious Pubarche: Effects of Prolonged Metformin Treatment

Díaz Marta , Carreras-Badosa Gemma , Bassols Judit , de Zegher Francis , López- Bermejo Abel , Villarroya Francesc , Ibáñez Lourdes

Background: Low birth weight (LBW) followed by a rapid postnatal catch-up in weight predisposes individuals to a central distribution of body fat, which is reverted by metformin. Growth-and-differentiation-factor-15 (GDF15) plays an important role in the regulation of energy homeostasis, reducing food intake and lowering body weight. We aimed to assess whether GDF15 concentrations are raised by long-term metformin treatment in LBW/catch-up girls with precociou...

Efficacy and safety of once-weekly somatrogon in pediatric subjects with growth hormone deficiency: lack of impact of anti-drug antibodies

Deal Cheri , Silverman Lawrence , Korth-Bradley Joan , Roland Carl , Taylor Carrie , Cara Jose , Wajnrajch Michael

Objectives: Somatrogon, a long-acting recombinant human growth hormone (GH) consisting of the amino acid sequence of human GH (hGH) and three copies of the carboxy-terminal peptide (CTP) of human chorionic gonadotropin, is approved by the EMA for treatment of children with GH deficiency (GHD). In this phase 3 study, children with GHD received either somatrogon or Genotropin. The impact of testing positive for anti-drug antibodies to somatrogon (ADA+) on the ef...

Background: Silver Russell syndrome (SRS) is a rare imprinting disorder with prenatal and postnatal growth retardation and feeding difficulties. The main molecular causes are loss of methylation of the 11p15.5 imprinting control region (H19/IGF2) and maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 7. Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a complex neurodevelopmental imprinting disorder with neonatal muscular hypotonia, failure to thrive to insatiable appetite, sho...

Rath Shoshana , Elias-Assad Ghadir , Abozaid Said , Nasser Samra Nadra , Mandel Hannah

Background: Idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) is highly genetically heterogeneous. To date, about 50 causative genes have been identified, estimated to account for up to 50% of hereditary cases. With next generation sequencing (NGS) technology now in wide clinical use, it is increasingly possible to determine the underlying genetic etiology of isolated and combined pituitary hormone deficiencies.Objective: We...

Secondary Oxidized DEHP Metabolites May Participate in the Progression from Isolated Premature Thelarche to Central Precocious Puberty or Early Puberty

Zheng Xiuxin , Su Zhe

Objective: Urine phthalic acid esters (PAEs) are one of estrogen-mimetic EDCs. Many studies have suggested that urinary phthalic acid esters (PAEs) are closely related to central precocious puberty (CPP) and isolated premature thelarche (IPT), but there is no study between urinary PAEs and the progression of IPT. This study is to explore the influence of PAEs on the progression of IPT to CPP or early puberty (EP).Methods:</strong...

The Relationship Between Leptin, Kisspeptin, Irisin, Myostatin and Omentin Levels and Fat Tissue at Puberty

Başak Polat Zeliha , Orbak Zerrin , Doneray Hakan , Ozturk Nurinnisa

Introduction: The hypothalamo-pituitary system is activated as puberty begins and GnRH release occurs as well as the synthesis of many hormones. These hormones cause changes on muscle development, body fat distribution. In this study, changes in miyostatin, irisin, kisspeptin, omentin and leptin levels and the relationship of these changes with physical properties and fat tissue were investigated.Material and Method: A t...

SF1next study: spectrum of SF-1/NR5A1 gene variants in this large international cohort

Sommer Grit , Tack Lloyd , Cools Martine , Flück Christa , Study Group SF1next

Background: Loss-of-function variants in the NR5A1 gene are frequent causes of 46,XY differences of sex development (DSD). To date, the Human Gene Mutation Database contains 291 NR5A1 variants, most of which are missense (69%). Mouse models demonstrated the effect of loss of SF-1 on sex development, but the interactome of SF-1 is huge and an explanation for the broad phenotype is still missing. Controversies exist as: a) in vitro transactivation assays of NR5A...

Impaired gonadal function among pediatric Fanconi anemia patients following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

Koo Jane , Rios Julie , Mehta Parinda , Davies Stella , Myers Kasiani , Howell Jonathan

Background: Gonadal dysfunction and fertility impairment are some of the many clinical manifestations described among patients with Fanconi anemia (FA). Many who receive hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) suffer additionally from infertility due to gonadal damage from their preparative regimen. The effect of HSCT on gonadal insufficiency and fertility potential among children with FA is largely unknown.Methods:</stron...

Sensitivity to thyroid hormones and cardiometabolic risk in euthyroid obese children: a cross-sectional study.

Tropeano Angelo , Corica Domenico , Lorenza Curatola Selenia , Li Pomi Alessandra , Alibrandi Angela , Pepe Giorgia , Aversa Tommaso , Wasniewska Malgorzata

Background: The typical biochemical phenotype related to obesity, that is high serum thyrotropin (TSH) within normal range, low/normal free thyroxine (FT4) and increased free triiodothyronine (FT3) levels, can be interpreted as a resistance to thyroid hormones. It is unclear the role played by thyroid hormones in the pathogenesis of metabolic derangement associated with obesity.Aim: To investigate the association between...
