Re-Classification of Childhood Obesity by Steroid Metabolomic Disease Signature

Gawlik Aneta , Shmoish Michael , Hartmann Michaela , Malecka-Tendera Ewa , Wudy Stefan , Hochberg Ze'ev

Context: Analysis of steroids by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry (GC-MS) defines a subject’s ‘steroidal fingerprint’. Here, we clustered steroidal fingerprints to classify childhood obesity by ’steroid metabolomic signatures’.Methods: Urinary samples of 87 children (44 F) age 8.5–18.0 with obesity (BMI >97%) underwent solid phase extraction, enzymatic hydrolysis and derivatization. 31 steroids metabolites wer...

A Mutation in HS6ST1 Causes Self-limited Delayed Puberty

Howard Sasha , Poliandri Ariel , Cabrera Claudia , Barnes Michael , Wehkalampi Karoliina , Dunkel Leo

Background: Self-limited delayed puberty (DP) often segregates in an autosomal dominant pattern, suggesting that inheritance is conferred by a small number of genes. However, the underlying genetic background is mostly unknown. By comparison, many genes have been identified where loss-of-function mutations lead to hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH). Despite likely overlap between the pathophysiology of delayed puberty and conditions of GnRH deficiency, few studies have examine...

Disease and Treatment Burden in Children and Adolescents with Growth Hormone Deficiency

Brod Meryl , Hojbjerre Lise , Alolga Suzanne , Nacson Alise , Nordholm Lars , Rassmussen Michael Hojby

Background: Children with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) may experience physiological symptoms as well as social and emotional problems.Objective and hypotheses: This qualitative study explored the burden of GHD and treatment for children and their parents.Method: 70 interviews were conducted with 39 children (age 8–12) and 31 parents of children with GHD (age 4–12) in Germany, UK and USA. Interviews were analysed using ...

GH Excess in McCune–Albright Syndrome

Tessaris Daniele , Boyce Alison M , Matarazzo Patrizia , Lala Roberto , Collins Michael T

Background: McCune–Albright Syndrome is a combination of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia (BFD), café’-au-lait skin pigmentation and hyperfunctioning endocrinopathies. It results from postzygotic mutations in a-subunit of the Gsalfa protein and the consequent phenotype is a mosaic with high degree of clinical variability.Objective and hypotheses: The aim of the study is determine prevalence and characteristics of GH hypersecretion (GHH) in MA...

Size-Corrected Bone Mineral Density is not Affected by Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation and Total Body Irradiation in Leukaemia Survivors

Wei Christina , Elson Ruth , Cox Rachel , Bradley Karin , Barton John , Stevens Michael , Crowne Elizabeth

Background: Childhood haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and total body irradiation (HSCT/TBI) survivors have multiple risk factors for reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and poor growth. Reduced z-scores from dual energy x-Ray absorptiometry (DEXA) have been reported, but are unreliable in patients with short stature/abnormal body composition.Objective: To investigate the influence of HSCT/TBI on size-corrected BMD in childhood leukaemia ...

Diagnosing the Metabolic Syndrome in Survivors of Childhood Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation and Total Body Irradiation

Wei Christina , Hunt Linda , Elson Ruth , Cox Rachel , Bradley Karin , Shield Julian , Stevens Michael , Crowne Elizabeth

Background: The well-documented increased cardiometabolic risk in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and total body irradiation (HSCT/TBI) survivors is under-recognised using standard (International Diabetes Federation (IDF)) metabolic syndrome (MetS) criteria. This is defined as the presence of central adiposity using increased waist circumference (WC) or BMI, (often not abnormal in HSCT/TBI survivors despite increased central adiposity), plus additional features includ...

Overweight and Obesity in Childhood Cancer Survivors

Denzer Christian , Breuninger Louise , Steinbach Daniel , Cario Holger , Debatin Klaus-Michael , Wabitsch Martin

Background: Obesity is a potential late-effect of therapies for childhood cancer. Reported prevalence rates of obesity in childhood cancer survivors are heterogenous and currently unavailable for children treated according to protocols of the German Society for Paediatric Oncology. Furthermore, risk factors for the development of obesity following childhood cancer remain largely unknown.Methods: From a cohort of n=149 patients followed in a late...

Advanced Bone Age and Accelerated Dental Development Associated with Elevated Retinoic Acid Levels and Haploinsufficiency of CYP26A1 and CYP26C1

Nilsson Ola , Isoherranen Nina , Guttmann-Bauman Ines , Jee YouHee , Guo Michael , Lui Julian , Dauber Andrew

Background: Nutritional excess of vitamin A, a precursor for retinoic acid (RA), causes premature epiphyseal fusion, craniosynostosis, as well as light-dependent retinopathy. Similarly, homozygous loss-of-function mutations in one of the major RA-metabolizing enzymes CYP26B1 causes advanced bone age, premature epiphyseal fusion, and craniosynostosis. We studied a patient with markedly accelerated skeletal and dental development, retinal scarring, and autism-spectrum disease.</...

Whole Exome Sequencing Identifies De Novo HRAS Mutation Underlying Primary IGF1 Deficiency (PIGFD)

Grosse Greta , Hilger Alina , Draaken Markus , Ludwig Michael , Reutter Heiko , Lorenzen Franziska , Woelfle Joachim

Background: Primary IGF1 deficiency (PIGFD) is a rare condition defined by low IGF1 levels, GH sufficiency and absence of secondary causes of growth failure. PIGFD is an approved indication for treatment with recombinant IGF1 (rIGF1). Its genetic causes remain largely unknown.Objective and hypotheses: To elucidate genetic causes of PIGFD.Method: Clinical phenotyping followed by trio-based whole-exome sequencing (WES) in 11 complete...

4 Years Follow-Up for 25OHD and iPTH in Vitamin D Substituted Patients with Diabetes Mellitus 1: An Unicentric Prospective Study

Weissenbacher Claudia , Roeb Julia , Sydlik Carmen , Pozza Susanne Bechtold Dalla , Marx Michael , Schmidt Heinrich

Background: Vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency seems to occur frequently in children and teenagers but it is a matter of debate if limits (<20 ng/ml; <30 ng/ml) are correct. Besides its effect in bone metabolism Vit-D is also supposed to have a positive influence in diabetes mellitus 1 (DM1).Objective and hypotheses: To study 25OHD and iPTH values in a group of patients (pts) (n=57) with DM1 without Vit-D substitution (2011), with 1000 I...
