Appetite Suppressing Effects of Glucoregulatory Peptides Devoid of Nausea

Doyle Robert P. , Elfers Clinton T. , Milliken Brandon T. , Sweet Ian , Roth Christian L.

Few treatments for type 2 diabetes (T2D) and obesity achieve meaningful long-term weight-loss and are often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Thus, there is a critical need for a new generation of obesity medications that provide glycemic control with enhanced hypophagic response without nausea. Our group has developed and tested two new monomeric chimeric peptides against a novel target for obesity treatment concomitant with T2D in the form of dual agonism of the anorectic ...

Phenotypic Characterization of a Large Pediatric Cohort of Patients with Genetic Forms of Congenital Hypopituitarism

Cionna Cecilia , Cerbone Manuela , Gregory Louise C , Dattani Mehul T

Background: Genetic variants are identified in a small proportion (~10%) of patients with Congenital Hypopituitarism (CH), with variable associated phenotypes. We aimed to phenotypically characterise a large cohort of patients with genetically proven CH.Patients and methods: 1684 CH patients were screened (Sanger or whole exome sequencing) over a 20-year period (1998-2018) for mutations in genes regulating pitui...

A Rare Cause of SRY (-) 46, XX DSD: Aromatase Deficiency

Buğrul Fuat , Güran Tülay

Introduction: Aromatase deficiency is a rare cause of autosomal recessive 46, XX disorders of sex development (DSD) due to CYP19A1 gene mutations. The affected patients cannot have a normal estrogen biosynthesis. It is characterized by low serum estrogen, increased gonadotropins, and ovarian cysts. Herein, we report a new case with aromatase deficiency.Case Report: A 1-month-old girl was referred due to cliterom...

Growth Pattern and Final Height Outcome in Children with Septo-optic Dysplasia and Isolated Hypopituitarism Treated with rhGH in a Single Centre

Cerbone Manuela , Guemes Maria , Improda Nicola , Dattani Mehul T

Aim: To identify the distinctive features of GH Deficiency (GHD) and to assess the response to GH treatment (rhGH) in children with Septo-Optic-dysplasia (SOD) and Multiple Pituitary Hormone Deficiencies (MPHD).Methods: Retrospective longitudinal single centre study of children with SOD (n:171) and MPHD (n:53). GHD was diagnosed in patients with growth failure by an insufficient GH response (≤6.7 μg/l) to provocation (Insulin Induced Hypoglyca...

Role of Insulin like Growth Factors on the Growth Parameters in Children with Acquired Hypothyroidism: An Analysis

Yadav Sangita , Goel Ruchi , Mantan Mukta , Mishra T K

Introduction: Growth retardation as clinical manifestation among children with acquired hypothyroidism is observed later in the course of the illness. Thyroid hormones along with insulin like growth factors (IGF) have important role in somatic and skeletal growth. Studies addressing role of IGF’s towards growth retardation in children with acquired hypothyroidism are limited.Objective: To evaluate effect of Insulin like growth factors in children wi...

Clinical and Cost-Effectiveness of GH Treatment for Children in Wales

Pop Raluca-Monica , Warner Justin T. , Gregory John W.

Background: GH treatment has been used for the last 30 years for children with short stature with varying individual responses.Objective: Analysis of final height SDS (standard deviation score) and the factors influencing it in children treated with growth hormone.Material and methods: Subjects across Wales who received GH treatment, part supervised by tertiary center staff and reached final height while on treatment, were identifi...

Pulling the Brakes – ‘Catch Down Growth’: A Phenomenon for Achieving Mid-parental Height Centile After Acquired, All-cause, Brain Injury

Kraus Fabian B T , Hindmarsh Peter C , Spoudeas Helen A

Introduction: Of any pituitary dysfunction following brain injury, growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) is the most prevalent. The cut-point for defining GHD has been placed at 7 ng/mL representing optimum test performance. We hypothesised this cut-off may be set too low for genetically taller children with acquired brain injury, notably brain tumours, who demonstrate severe growth failure but repeatedly fail to meet diagnostic thresholds for GH replacement until several centi...

Do Insulin Like Growth Factors also Influence Growth in Children with Congenital Hypothyroidism: A Cohort Analysis

Yadav Sangita , Goel Ruchi , Mantan Mukta , Mishra T K

Introduction: Congenital Hypothyroidism if not treated timely presents with growth & developmental delay. Thyroid hormones and Growth hormone- Insulin like growth factor 1 axis (GH-IGF-1) together are critical for somatic and skeletal growth. Hypothyroidism and derangement in this axis leads to profound growth retardation and delayed skeletal maturation. Limited studies suggest that thyroxine directly regulates IGF-1 independent of GH in congenital hypothyroidism.<p cl...

Septo-optic Dysplasia Spectrum: Pubertal Features of a Large Cohort of Children and Adolescents with Septo-optic Dysplasia, Congenital Hypopituitarism and Optic Nerve Hypoplasia from a Single Centre

Cerbone Manuela , Guemes Maria , Improda Nicola , Dattani Mehul T

Background: Children with septo-optic dysplasia (SOD) and related disorders can present with either hypogonadotropic hypogonadism or precocious puberty. This phenotypic variability remains unexplained.Objective and hypotheses: To compare pubertal characteristics of SOD with isolated congenital hypopituitarism (CPHD) and optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH).Method: Retrospective longitudinal data collection from 259 patients with: SOD (...
