Preclinical Studies of Acrodysostosis Gene AAV Therapy in a Knock-In R368X PRKAR1A Mouse Model

Le Stunff Catherine , Gunes Yasemin , Mille Clémence , Bougnères Pierre

The use of recombinant adeno-associated viruses (rAAV) as safe vectors have allowed hundreds of gene therapy attempts to treat monogenic diseases not including bone genetic diseases (Gao G, Nat Rev Drug Dis 2019). To our knowledge, there has been few attempts to apply gene therapy to monogenic bone diseases, largely because most skeletal malformations are being developed during fetal life. Patients affected with acrodysostosis are known to aggravate their skeletal malformation...

Characterization of GNAS miRNAs Targets: Trying to Better Understand the Pathophysiology of Pseudohypoparathyroidism 1B (PHP1B)

Hanna Patrick , Netchine Irene , Le Stunff Catherine , Linglart Agnes

Background: Patients affected with PHP1B are characterized by resistance to PTH which binds to the PTH receptor and activate the cAMP/Gsa signaling pathway. Gsa is encoded by GNAS, a locus subjected to genomic imprinting. PHP1B patients present with abnormal methylation at the maternal A/B promoter and, in some cases, at the other promoters (XLas, GNAS-AS1 and NESP55) of the GNAS locus, likely leading to a decreased express...

CG Methylation at the IGF1 P2 Promoter is a Major Epigenetic Determinant of Postnatal, Not Foetal Growth

Ouni Myriam , Le Stunff Catherine , Castell Anne Laure , Bougneres Pierre

Background: The height of children has a Gaussian distribution. Genetics explain an important part of individual variability, but no single genomic variant accounts for more than 0.3% of height variance. At the interface of genetics and environment, epigenetics is expected to contribute to phenotypic variability. IGF1 is an attractive locus to test this hypothesis.Objectives: To quantify the effect of CG methylation of IGF1 promoters on height.<p cla...

Knock in of the Recurrent R368X Mutation of PRKAR1A that Represses cAMP-dependent Protein Kinase A Activation: A Model of Acrodysostosis Type 1?

Le Stunff Catherine , Tilotta Francoise , Sadoine Jeremy , Le Denmat Dominique , Clauser Eric , Bougneres Pierre , Chaussain Catherine , Silve Caroline

Background: In humans, activating mutations in the PRKAR1A gene cause acrodysostosis1 (ACRDYS1). Two striking features of this rare developmental and skeletal disorder are renal resistance to PTH and chondrodysplasia resulting from the constitutive inhibition of PTHR1/Gsa/AC/cAMP/PKA signaling caused by the PRKAR1A mutations.Objective and hypotheses: Document the consequences of the germline expression of a PRKAR1A mutation causing a dominant repression ...

Contraception in Adolescence: Current Options

Gordon Catherine

Adolescent girls may present to their pediatric or reproductive endocrinologist seeking advice regarding contraception. In 2014, there are many methods available, and the risks and benefits of each must be weighed in determining which method is most appropriate for a given patient. This lecture will provide an overview of contraceptive methods, with a focus on oral contraceptive pills, transdermal patches, and the vaginal ring. Methods will be reviewed with a focus on thrombot...

Targeted Birth Length and Parental Height Measurement in Babies with Birthweight≤9th Centile; Improved Uptake During Second Study During 1 Calendar Year in a Single Newborn Unit

Sardar Colette Montgomery , Donnelly Sharon , Siddique Jamila , Gault Emma Jane , Kinmond Sheena , Donaldson Malcolm

Background: The contribution of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and parental height (PH) to childhood short stature is difficult to determine in countries, including the UK, where birth length (BL) is not routinely measured, while accurate PH may become unavailable due to separation/divorce. A previous study (2008–2009) examined the feasibility of BL and PH measurement in the lightest 9% of babies born in a single maternity unit. Uptake was disappointing, with part...

Beta1-Tubulin Gene (TUBB1) Mutations Cause Thyroid Dysgenesis Associated to Abnormal Platelet Morphology and Hyper-Aggregation

Background: Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is the most common neonatal endocrine disorder, with an incidence of 1:3000 neonates, and one of the most frequent preventable causes of mental retardation worldwide. Most (65%) cases of primary permanent CH are due to thyroid dysgenesis (TD). However, a genetic cause is identified in less than 5% of CH due to DT.Methods: We performed WES (Whole Exome Sequencing) for siblings with childhood-onset TD and we analy...

Development of Severe Obesity in a Children with a Brainstem Tumor

Pihoker Catherine , Roth Christian

The homeostatic control of energy balance is tightly regulated. Appetite and energy expenditure regulation involves neurons in the hypothalamus as well as other brain regions, including the limbic system, amygdala and the brainstem. Hypothalamic obesity is a well-recognized consequence of lesions such as craniopharyngiomas and other tumors in the hypothalamic region. Less known is obesity related to tumors in other brain regions. The child presented at 14 years of age with fai...

Single centre experience of Hydrocortisone Granules (Alkindi) in children under 6 years of age with Adrenal Insufficiency

Snow Claire , Owen Catherine ,

Introduction: Children with Adrenal insufficiency (AI) are usually managed with glucocorticoid replacement as hydrocortisone. Treatment options in younger patients include administering an aliquot of 10mg hydrocortisone tablets dissolved in water. However, this is time consuming and may be inaccurate. We describe our experience of using Alkindi (, the first hydrocortisone preparation licensed for children with AI.<stron...

Pediatric Stroke as the Presenting Symptom of New Onset Diabetes without DKA

Bharill Sonum , Constantacos Cathrine

Introduction: Neurologic symptoms, such as cerebral edema, stroke, and extrapontine myelinolysis, are rare in pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) in the absence of severe diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) or chronically poor glycemic control. Ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke may account for 10% of intracerebral complications of DKA. DKA increases the risk for neurovascular compromise by several proposed mechanisms, including dehydration, hyperosmolarity, tissue hyp...
