Mutations in SHOX, GHR and IGFALS Genes Among Indian Children with ‘Idiopathic Short Stature’

Kumar Anil , Jain Vandana

Background: Linear growth is a multifactorial trait.Short children in whom no definite etiology is found after thorough evaluation are considered to have idiopathic short stature (ISS). A proportion of these children have a monogenic basis of short stature.Aim: To study the prevalence of mutations or pathogenic variants in SHOX, GHR and IGFALS genes among Indian children with ISS.Methods: Children aged 4&...

Hidden Hunger in Overweight/obese Indian Adolescents

Jain Vandana , Upadhyaya Babita , Agarwala Anuja

Background and Objective: Overweight/obese children may have unrecognized deficiency of several essential micronutrients owing to their faulty dietary habits. These may impair their physical and mental development. Deficiency of specific minerals and vitamins that co-factors in metabolic and signalling pathways, such as choline, zinc, magnesium, vitamins D and B12 may also predispose to insulin resistance, fatty liver and metabolic syndrome. This study was undertaken to assess...

Growth and Body Composition of Term Healthy Indian Infants from Birth to 2 Years of Age

Jain Vandana , Kumar Brijesh , Kurpad Anura

Objective: To do longitudinal assessment of fat mass (FM)% of term, healthy Indian infants by stable isotope dilution method and skinfold thicknesses.Methods: Term healthy singleton newborns, with birth weight between 1.8 to 4.0 Kg, were followed from birth to 2 years. Anthropometry and skinfold thickness measurement at biceps, triceps, subscapular and supra-iliac sites was done serially at 10 days, 3 months, 1 and 2 years. Anthropometric data was conver...

Association of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in TNFA, PNPLA3, ADIPOQ and APOC3 Genes with Obesity and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in North Indian Adolescents

Jain Vandana , Kumar Anil , Jana Manisha , Kalaivani Mani

Background: Polymorphisms in several genes may be associated with a higher risk of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).Objective: To examine the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) −238G>A, −1031 T>C and −863 C>A of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α (TNFA) gene; rs738409 C>G of patatin-like phospholipase domain containing 3 (PNPLA3) gene; +276 G>T and +45 T>G of Ad...

Kumar Anil , Faruq Mohd , Werner Ralf , Sharma Rajni , Jain Vandana

Aim: To study the mutation spectrum in SRD5A2 and AR genes among Indian children with 46 XY disorders of sex development (DSD).Methods: This work is part of an ongoing study at Department of Pediatrics, AIIMS, Delhi, approved by the ethics committee of the Institute. Children with 46 XY DSD in whom endocrine investigations were suggestive of either 5α reductase deficiency or androgen insensitivity syndrome were enrolled for mutatio...

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Celiac and Hypothyroidism Complicating Type 1 Diabetes: A Rare Tetrad

Jain Rakhi , Kochar Indrapal singh

The association of TIDM and SLE is rather rare, but in the event of occurrence can complicate the course of the other. Genetic predisposition, autoimmunity and viral infections are the main etiopathological factors implicated in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus and an association between TIDM and Celiac disease (CD) has a high incidence. This is probably due the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) DR3- DQ2 and DR4-DQ8 that is common to both the diseases.<p class="abs...

Recombinant Human GH Effects on Growth and Clinical Status in Cystic Fibrosis

Ghergherehchi Robabeh , Rafeey Mandana , Habibzadeh Afshin , Zamani Masoud , Ansarin Khalil , Shabestari Mahnaz Sadeghi

Background: Growth retardation is a common finding in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Recombinant human GH (rhGH) has shown promising results in improving weight, height and clinical status of CF patients.Objective and hypotheses: In this study we aim to evaluate efficacy of rhGH on growth and clinical status in CF patients.Method: In this prospective clinical trial we recruited 34 CF patients (58.8% male with mean age of 62.05&#177...

Establishment of Reference Intervals for Hair Cortisol in Healthy Children Aged 0-18 Years Using Mass Spectrometric Analysis

de Kruijff Ineke , Noppe Gerard , Kieviet Noera , Choenni Vandhana , Lambregtse-van den Berg Mijke , Begijn Dominique , Tromp Ellen , Dorst Kristien , van Rossum Elisabeth , de Rijke Yolanda , van den Akker Erica

Background: Human scalp hair is a valuable matrix for determining long-term cortisol concentrations, with wide-spread applicability in clinical care as well as research. However, pediatric reference intervals are lacking.The aim of this study is to establish age-adjusted reference intervals for hair cortisol in children aged 0-18 years and to gain insight into hair-growth velocity in children up to 2 years old.Methods: A...
