Can Hypothalamic Obesity be Treated with Stimulants? Follow Up

Denzer Friederike , Lennerz Belinda , Vollbach Heike , Denzer Christian , Wabitsch Martin

Background: Published case reports and anecdotal experience suggest a positive effect of dexamphetamine, a CNS stimulant on impetus and weight in patients with hypothalamic obesity. Based on these observations, patients presenting to our obesity clinic with hypothalamic obesity are offered off-label treatment with dexamphetamine.Method: Between 2010 and 2015, patients starting dexamphetamine treatment were enrolled in a prospective observation study. A r...

Prevalence and Phenotypic Characterization of MC4R Mutations in a Large Paediatric Cohort

Vollbach Heike , Brandt Stephanie , Lahr Georgina , Wabitsch Martin

Background: The melanocortin-4-receptor (MC4R) plays a key role in body weight regulation. Hypothalamic activation of MC4R reduces food intake and increases energy expenditure. Mutations in the MC4R gene lead to the most common cause of monogenetic obesity. More than 150 different mutations are currently known. Their prevalence in obese subjects differs between 0.2 and 5.8%, depending on ethnicity, age and grade of obesity of the analysed cohort. Impact on phenotype a...

A Survival Analysis Approach to Assess the Association between Maternal Prepregnancy Overweight and Childhood Overweight: Results of the Ulm Birth Cohort Study (UBCS)

Brandt Stephanie , Brenner Hermann , Genuneit Jon , Rothenbacher Dietrich , Wabitsch Martin

Background: It has been suggested that maternal prepregnancy overweight has an effect on childhood overweight.Objective: We aimed to use a survival analysis approach to investigate the association between maternal prepregnancy overweight and childhood overweight in the prospective Ulm Birth Cohort Study (UBCS).Design: At baseline n=1086 mothers and their newborns agreed to participate in the UBCS. Weight and height values ...

Coexisting Disorder of Sex Development and Gender Dysphoria: A case report about an individual with Turner syndrome receiving first female and subsequent male hormone replacement therapy

Herrmann Gloria , Bundschu Karin , Allroggen Marc , Wabitsch Martin

Introduction: Disorders of sex development (DSD) refer to a group of conditions, including Turner syndrome in which an individual's physical sex characteristics do not conform to typical male or female patterns, including a range of differences in chromosomes, hormones and anatomy. Gender-specific problems are usually not prominent, compared to other forms of DSD. Gender dysphoria (GD) is a discomfort between a person’s assigned sex based on physica...

Unstable glycaemia in rare, early-onset Shwachman-Diamond syndrome-associated diabetes mellitus

Navasardyan Lusine , Furlan Ingrid , Brandt Stephanie , Schulz Ansgar , Wabitsch Martin , Denzer Christian

Shwachman-Diamond syndrome (SDS) is a rare congenital disease, which is caused by SBDS gene mutations. The main characteristics of SDS are pancreatic exocrine deficiency, hematological dysfunction, and skeletal growth failure. Emerging data from case reports and patient registries suggest, that SDS could also be associated with an increased risk for diabetes mellitus. Additionally, a small number of case reports in the literature describe a susceptibility to hypoglycaemia as a...

microRNA-27a - a strand specific regulator of adipogenesis and adipocyte function

Roos Julian , Wu Hang , Pula Taner , Tews Daniel , Wabitsch Martin , Debatin Klaus-Michael , Fischer-Posovszky Pamela

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNA molecules and play an important role in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression and thereby influence important cellular functions. In adipocytes, miRNAs regulate key processes such as differentiation, inflammation, metabolism, and adipokine secretion. Recently, we found that miR-27a is upregulated under proinflammatory conditions in human adipocytes. Thus, our goal was to better understand the function of miR-27a in a...

Severe early-onset obesity and diabetic ketoacidosis due to a novel homozygous c.169C>T p.Arg57* mutation in CEP19 gene

Cayir Atilla , Turkyilmaz Ayberk , Rabenstein Hannah , Guven Fadime , Sumeyra Karagoz Yuksel , Wabitsch Martin , Demirbilek Huseyin

Background and Objective: Homozygous mutations in the “Centrosomal Protein-19 (CEP19)” gene are extremely rare causes of early-onset severe monogenic obesity. We, herein, report three siblings with CEP19 mutation.Case Presentation and Method: The index case was a 12-years-old female who presented with severe obesity (BMI:62.7kg/m2), metabolic syndrome and diabetic ketoacidosis. Her non-identical twin female s...

e-REC Capturing The Occurrence and Burden Of COVID-19 Infections In People With Rare Genetic Obesity Disorders

Kerkhof Gerthe , Wabitsch Martin , Bryce Jillian , Johannsson Gudmundur , Ahmed Faisal , van den Akker Erica

Introduction: Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in spring 2020, the European Registries For Rare Endocrine Conditions (EuRRECa), which is a collaboration between Endo-ERN, ESPE and ESE provided the possibility for registration of cases. Obesity is a risk factor for severe COVID-19 disease course in adults. In children and adolescents, COVID-19 disease course is much milder, but has also been identified as risk factor. As rare genetic obesity disorde...

Impact of β-cell function and glucose effectiveness on the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus in obese European children and adolescents

Ellen Kratzer Sophie , Vogt Josef , Kohlsdorf Katja , von Schnurbein Julia , Wabitsch Martin , Denzer Christian

Objectives: Despite high prevalence rates of childhood obesity, youth-onset T2DM occurs in a comparably lower incidence in Europe than in other world regions. Available data from cohorts of obese children and adolescents living in the US suggest a parallel decline of insulin sensitivity and β-cell function as key factors in the pathophysiology of early-onset T2DM. If these results can be applied to European children and adolescents is currently unknown.</...

Effects of long-term metreleptin replacement therapy on weight and comorbidities in a patient with bioinactive leptin

Zorn Stefanie , von Schnurbein Julia , Kohlsdorf Katja , Brandt Stephanie , Wabitsch Martin

Introduction: Congenital leptin deficiency can be treated with the human leptin analogon metreleptin as first reported in 1999. To date, the long-term effects (> 1 year) of metreleptin treatment on anthropometry and comorbidities have only been described in 8 patients with leptin deficiency. Here, we present the long-term effects of metreleptin substitution on weight and comorbidities in a patient with bioinactive leptin.Metho...
