Timing of Hypoglycaemia in Patients with Hyperinsulinism (HI): Extension of the Digital Phenotype

Worth Chris , Harper Simon , Salomon-Estebanez Maria , O’Shea Elaine , Nutter Paul , Dunne Mark J , Banerjee Indraneel ,

Background: Hyperinsulinism (HI) due to excess and dysregulated insulin secretion is the most common cause of severe and recurrent hypoglycaemia in childhood. High cerebral glucose utilisation in the early hours results in high risk of hypoglycaemia for people with diabetes and carries a significant risk of brain injury. Prevention of hypoglycaemia is the cornerstone of management for HI but the risk of hypoglycaemia at night or indeed the timing of hypoglycae...

Computer-aided facial analysis as a tool to identify patients with Silver-Russell syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome

Ciancia Silvia , Goedegebuure Wesley J. , Grootjen Lionne N. , Hokken-Koelega Anita C.S. , Kerkhof Gerthe F. , van der Kaay Danielle C. ,

Introduction: Genetic syndromes often show suggestive facial features that provide clues for the diagnosis. Considering the high number of genetic syndromes and the possible overlap of some features, memorizing facial gestalt is a challenging task for clinicians. DeepGestalt technology, and its app Face2Gene, has a growing impact on the diagnosis and management of genetic diseases by analyzing the features detected in one or more facial images of affected indi...

Novel dominant negative GH receptor variants provide important insights into GH receptor physiology

Andrews Afiya , Cottrell Emily , Maharaj Avinaash , Ladha Tasneem , Williams Jack , Metherell Louise A , McCormick Peter J , Storr Helen L ,

Background: Growth hormone insensitivity (GHI) encompasses normal/elevated growth hormone (GH), low IGF-I levels and growth restriction. Non-classical/mild-moderate GHI is an emerging entity which is poorly characterised, and, in many subjects, the underlying cause is unclear. Heterozygous dominant negative (DN) variants located in the intracellular/transmembrane domain of the GH receptor (GHR) cause a ‘non-classical’ GHI phenotype.<p class="abst...

Bone mineral density in children and adolescents with Cystic Fibrosis: a follow-up study.

Tamer Gizem , G.M. Arets Hubertus , K. van der Ent Cornelis , M. van Santen Hanneke , J. van der Kamp Hetty

Background: Adults with CF show a higher rate of osteoporosis compared to healthy adults. Achieving proper bone mass is a process starting in childhood. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of decreased bone mineral density (BMD), changes during puberty and risk factors for low BMD in children and adolescences with CF in a large Dutch cohort.Patients and methods: A retrospective observational cohort study was performed in...

Cardio-metabolic health in Danish children aged 7-10 years conceived after assisted reproductive technology

Background: Children conceived after assisted reproductive technology (ART) with frozen embryo transfer (FET) are more often born large-for-gestational age (LGA) while children born after fresh embryo transfer (fresh-ET) are at risk of being small-for-gestational age (SGA). LGA or SGA children are at increased risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life. The long-term cardio-metabolic health of children born after ART is scarcely explore...

Biphasic Glucocorticoid Rhythm in One Month Old Infants: Reflection of a Developing HPA-Axis?

Hollanders Jonneke J. , de Goede Paul , van der Voorn Bibian , Honig Adriaan , Rotteveel Joost , Dolman Koert , Kalsbeek Andries , Finken Martijn J.J.

Background: The hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis displays a diurnal rhythm, peaking in the morning and with a nadir at night. However, not much is known about the development of the HPA- axis, although strikingly some evidence suggests that a rhythm with a peak in the afternoon is already present antenatally. We aimed to describe HPA-axis activity at age 1 month as well as study possible influencing factors.Methods</stro...

GHR Transcript Heterogeneity May Explain the Phenotypic Variability in Patients with Homozygous GHR Pseudoexon (6ψ) Mutation

Chatterjee Sumana , Rose Steven J , Mushtaq Talat , Cottrell Emily , Maharaj Avinaash V , Williams Jack , Savage Martin O , Metherell Loiuse A , Storr Helen L

Objectives: The homozygous GHR pseudoexon (6ψ) mutation leads to aberrant splicing of the GHR gene with clinical and biochemical heterogeneity. We investigated whether the phenotypic variability could be explained by transcript heterogeneity i.e. ratio of abnormal (6ψ GHR) to normal (WT GHR) transcripts and/or the presence of concurrent defects in other short stature (SS) genes.Methods: 6&#968...

De-novo and Depot-Specific Androgen Production in Human Adipose Tissue - a Source of Hyperandrogenism in Obese Females

Wagner Isabel Viola , Sahlin Lena , Kulle Alexandra , Klöting Nora , Döbeln Viola , Savchuk Iuliia , Dötsch Jörg , Söder Olle

Background: Obesity in females is often associated with metabolic complications and hyperandrogenism but the role of adipose tissue (AT) in androgen synthesis remains unclear.Aims/Objectives: Employing human subcutaneous and visceral AT and cultured adipocytes, we studied whether AT could be a source of androgens promoting hyperandrogenism in lean and especially in obese females.Methods</st...

Bone Mineral Density is Normal in Prepubertal Patients with Turner Syndrome when Corrected by Height/age

Dallago Renata Thomazini , Santos Allan Oliveira , Marmo Denise Barbieri , Guerra-Júnior Gil , Morcillo André Moreno , Lemos-Marini Sofia Helena Valente

Introduction: Turner's syndrome (TS) is associated with several manifestations the most frequent being short stature and hypogonadism. Some authors (Nadeem, 2012; Bakalov, 2008) reported that individuals with TS have increased risk of fractures, but the etiology and mechanism of bone fragility have not been yet fully elucidated and may be exacerbated by hormonal factors (Cintron, 2017; Soucek, 2015). Bone densitometry (BD) through the emission of double en...

References for Testicular Volume Measured by Ultrasound and for Pubic Hair in 6-16 Year-Old Norwegian Boys

Objective: Recent studies have suggested earlier onset of pubertal development in boys. As assessment with orchidometer tends to overestimate true testicular volume (TV), and measurements based on ultrasound (US) have been proposed as a more reliable method, we present US based references in 6-16 year-old Norwegian boys. Our results are compared with data from Europe and the United States (U.S.) in order to establish evidence for an ongoing secular trend in ma...
