The Efficacy of GnRHa alone or in Combination with rhGH for the Treatment of Idiopathic Central Precocious Puberty or Early and Fast Puberty in Chinese Girls

Zhang Jianwei , Fu Junfen

Object: To assess the efficacy and impact factors of treatment with GnRHa alone or in combination with rhGH in idiopathic central precocious puberty (CPP) or early and fast puberty (EFP) in Chinese girls.Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis on 20 years of data obtained from 11 medical centers from January 1998 to March 2017, and 393 girls with CPP (n=302) or EFP (n=91), who untreated or received GnRHa alone or in Combination w...

High prevalence of undiagnosed metabolic dysfunction among children and adolescents with obesity in China

Wang Jinling , Fu Junfen ,

Objective: The aim here was to describe the characteristics of obese children and adolescents and to determine how the prevalence of comorbidities differed over 10 years in China.Methods: Obese children and adolescents were enrolled from Department of Endocrinology, Children’s Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine in Hangzhou (Zhejiang Province, China). Eligibility was defined by a body mass index ...

Mannose Binding Lectin and Carotid Intima–Media Thickness in Chinese Obese Children

Wu Wei , Cheng Liqing , Fu Junfen

Background: Mannose binding lectin (MBL) is an important innate immune molecule and is previously found to be related to artery damage in some diseases as SLE rheumatoid arthritis and severe atherosclerosis. However, its role in artery change is still contradictory according to different studies. We found the carotid intima–media thickness (CIMT) increased in obese children which indicated an early change of atherosclerosis.Objective and hypotheses:...

Level of Non-HDL Cholesterol and its Related Factors in Chinese Han Students

Yanlan Fang , Li Liang , Junfen Fu

Background: Cardiovascular disease is one of the most prominent causes of mortality world widely. A key related factor of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the presence of dyslipidemia. Together with elevated blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia is a component of metabolic syndrome and associated with an increasing incidence of coronary heart disease.Objective and hypotheses: The aim of this study was to investigate the co...

A novel mitochondrial tRNAThr 15894G>A mutation is potentially risk factor in a Chinese family with obesity

Wang Jinling , Ji Yanchun , Fu Junfen ,

A Chinese family of Han with symptoms of matrilineally-inherited obesity was assessed and its clinical, genetic, and molecular profiling was conducted. Obesity was observed in matrilineal relatives (3 out of 14) of a single generation (of 3 alive generations) of this family. On pedigree analysis and sequencing of their mitochondrial DNA, a novel homoplasmic mutation of the mitochondrial tRNAThr gene (15894G>A) was identified in these individuals. This mutation c...

Obesity is potentially associated with a novel mitochondrial tRNAGly 10029A>G mutation in a Chinese family

Wang Jinling , Ji Yanchun , Fu Junfen

In this study, we conducted a clinical, genetic, and molecular profiling of a Han Chinese family with evident of matrilineally-inherited obesity. Obesity was evident in 2/6 matrilineal relatives in a single generation of this family (of 3 available generations). When the mitochondrial DNA of these individuals was sequences and a pedigree analysis was performed, we were able to identify a novel homoplasmic mutation of the mitochondrial tRNAGly gene (10029A>G) in t...

Expression of miRNAs in Circulating Exosomes Derived from Patients with NAFLD

zhang jianwei , hu lin , huang ke , fu junfen

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD),which represents the leading cause of hepatic damage worldwide,is modulated by epigenetic factors, in particular microRNAs (miRNAs), which control at post-transcriptional level many complementary target mRNA. However, the evidence for this is inconsistent. The high stability and expression of circulating exosomal miRNAs may allow their use as candidate biomarkers. For the discovery phase,exosomes were isolated from the serum of patients...

Circulating Exosomal miRNAs Involved in the Pathogenesis of Children Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis

Zhou Xuelian , Fu Junfen , Dong Guanping , Huang Ke , Wu Wei

Circulating Exosomal miRNAs involved in the Pathogenesis of Children Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis.Background: The incidence of children non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) increased rapidly paralleled with the global burden of obesity and diabetes. Although most patients are nonalcoholic fatty liver, there are still a small part of them will progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis and cirrhosis. However, the diagnosis of NASH is b...

Ratio of Triglycerides to High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Compared with Homeostasis Model Assessment Insulin Resistance Indexes in Screening the Metabolic Syndrome in Chinese Obese Children

Liang Jianfeng , Fu Junfen , Wang Jinling , Jiang Youjun , Dong Guanping

Background: IDF-2007 MS definition (MS-IDF2007) for children and adolescents has been challenged frequently in clinical practice and should be improved further. Therefore, it becomes imminent to explore an accessible and effective tool to screen obese children with the metabolic syndrome components.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the optimal cut-off values and compare the accuracy for the triglycerides and HDL cholesterol ratio and homeostasis m...

ACTH and Cortisol Levels are Associated with Cardiovascular Risk in Pediatric Obesity: a Cross-Sectional Study in China

Liang Jianfeng , Fu Junfen , Wang Jinling , Jiang Youjun , Dong Guanping

Background: The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis, and cortisol in particular, has been reported to be involved in obesity-associated metabolic disturbances in adults and in specific populations of adolescents.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the associations between serum ACTH and cortisol levels and cardiovascular risk factors in obese children and adolescents.Method: Of 1119 obese children and adolescen...
