Effects of IGF-1R Nuclear Localization in Glioblastoma Cells

Martin Ayelen , Clement Florencia , Venara Marcela , Bergada Ignacio , Gutierrez Mariana , Pennisi Patricia

Background: CNS tumors are the most frequent solid tumors in pediatric population. The IGF system of ligands and receptors are known to play an important role in both normal and neoplastic growth. Recently, we have shown that in paediatric gliomas, IGF-1R nuclear localization was significantly associated with both high grade tumours and increased risk of death, suggesting that nuclear IGF-1R localization may contribute to an aggressive behaviour of these tumours.<p class="...

TSH Receptor Gene Variants in Pediatric Patients with Non Autoimmune Hyperthyrotropinemia

Scaglia Paula , Keselman Ana , Papendieck Laura Gruneiro , Papendieck Patricia , Bergada Ignacio , Domene Horacio , Chiesa Ana

Context: Heterozygous mutations in TSH recepter (TSHR) have been described associated with mild TSH resistance characterized by non autoimmune hyperthyrotropinemia (NAH). The prevalence of this condition varies in different reports.Objective: To determine the prevalence of TSHR variants in pediatric NAH.Subjects and methods: Thirty-five non obese unrelated children with NAH (18 girls, aged 1–19 years) were enrolled. A...

Serum IGFBP-2 Concentration in Neonates with Potential Diagnosis of Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD)

Gabriela Ballerini Maria , Braslavsky Debora , Keselman Ana , Eugenia Rodriguez Maria , Gotta Gabriela , Gabriela Ropelato Maria , Bergada Ignacio

In a retrospective study (1), we found that a GH<6.5 μg/L, IGF-I-WHO87/518 <30 μg/L and IGFBP-3<0.8 μg/mL confirmed GHD diagnosis with high diagnostic accuracy in neonates with clinical suspicion of GHD. GH and insulin negatively regulate IGFBP-2, and it was proposed to reflect GH status in the diagnostic work-out of GHD in childhood and adults. The accuracy of IGFBP-2 has not been set for neonates.Objective: To prospectively v...

Adiponectin as a Marker of Peripheral Insulin Resistance in Adolescents with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and as a Tool to Suspect Insulin Receptor Defects

Freire Analia , Gryngarten Mirta , Ballerini Maria Gabriela , Arcari Andrea , Bengolea Sonia Viviana , Scaglia Paula , Bergada Ignacio , Ropelato Maria Gabriela

Background: Decreased serum adiponectin levels are associated with obesity and peripheral insulin resistance (IR). PCOS is characterized by hyperandrogenism and chronic anovulation and frequently is associated to IR. Some defects of Insulin Receptor have been proposed as mechanisms to explain ovarian hyperandrogenism in PCOS.Objectives: To explore adiponectin levels in adolescents with PCOS and to evaluate if adiponectin would identify potential patients...

Insulin Sensitivity in Girls with Central Precocious Puberty at Diagnosis and at 6 Months of GnRH Analogue Treatment

Arcari Andrea , Freire Analia , Escobar Maria Eugenia , Ballerini Maria Gabriela , Ropelato Maria Gabriela , Bergada Ignacio , Gryngarten Mirta

Background: Puberty is associated with a physiological decline in insulin sensitivity. Overweight and obesity are common among girls with Central Precocious Puberty (CPP). CPP and early menarche have been considered as risk factors for obesity and cardiovascular diseases during adulthood. Besides, concern has been raised by the potential impact of GnRH analogues (GnRH-a) treatment on body weight and metabolic profile.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate...

Characterization of IGFI Receptor Expression and Localization in Paediatric Gliomas Upon Diagnosis According to WHO 2007 Grading

Clement Florencia , Venara Marcela , Maglio Silvana , Martin Ayelen , Matho Cecilia , Petre Cesar , Lombardi Mercedes Garcia , Bergada Ignacio , Pennisi Patricia

Background: Gliomas are the most common subgroup of CNS tumours in children. Histologic grading is a means of predicting the biological behavior of these tumours and survival is strongly correlated with tumour gradation. The IGF system of ligands and receptors are known to play an important role in both normal and neoplastic growth. Recently, nuclear translocation of the type 1 IGF1R has been demonstrated in tumour tissues. Although the IGF1R expression has been described in C...

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in Adolescents: Metabolic Profile at Diagnosis, During and After Treatment with Oral Contraceptive

Arcari Andrea , Gryngarten Mirta , Ballerini Maria Gabriela , Freire Analia , Rodriguez Maria Eugenia , Ropelato Maria Gabriela , Bergada Ignacio , Escobar Maria Eugenia

Background: Obesity and unfavorable metabolic profile (insulin resistance and/or dyslipidemia) are frequently observed in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in Adolescents (PCOS) girls regardless of weight.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate clinical features and metabolic profile in PCOS adolescents, before, during and after Oral Contraceptive (OC) treatment.Method: We performed a retrospective study on 51 girls with PCOS diagnosed acc...

Neonatal Screening Program for Central Congenital Hypothyroidism

Braslavsky Debora , Prieto Laura , Keselman Ana , de Papendieck Laura Gruneiro , Enacan Rosa , Mendez Virginia , Bergada Ignacio , Chiesa Ana

Background: Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) comprises a heterogeneous group of disorders that includes diseases of the hypothalamo-hypophyseal system. The latter are missed on TSH based screening programs leading to increased morbidity and mortality. Additional T4 determinations, allows an early detection of CH of central origin (CH-C).Objective and hypotheses: To report the findings of a neonatal screening program based on determination of TSH...
