Plasma Proteomics in Healthy Subjects with Differences in Tissue Glucocorticoid Sensitivity Identifies a Novel Proteomic Signature

Nicolaides Nicolas C. , Makridakis Manousos , Stroggilos Rafael , Koniari Eleni , Papageorgiou Ifigeneia , Sertedaki Amalia , Zoidakis Jerome , Charmandari Evangelia ,

Background: Tissue sensitivity to glucocorticoids is characterized by significant inter-individual variation in terms of therapeutic response and susceptibility to several stress-related disorders. Proteomics approaches, combined with appropriate bioinformatics analysis, offer a comprehensive description of molecular phenotypes with clear links to human disease pathophysiology.Objective and Hypotheses: To investigate the usefulness of pl...

Recent Advances in the Genetics of Adrenal Hyperfunction and Tumours

Bertherat Jerome

There is a variety of unilateral adrenocortical tumors (ACT) and bilateral nodular adrenal hyperplasias that can be responsible for Cushing’ syndrome. Before puberty the most frequent are adrenocortical cancer (ACC) or micronodular adrenocortical hyperplasia (MiAH). The most classic form of MiAH is primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical dysplasia (PPNAD), diagnosed in more than two-third of Carney Complex patients. In adults adrenocortical adenomas (ACA) and primary bil...

Growth pattern of the nigerian child compared to international references

Elusiyan Jerome , Ibekwe MaryAnn Ugochi , Alkali Y , Agwu J. Chizo

Background: There are currently no specific growth charts for use in Nigerian children over the age of 5 years. Health workers rely on charts developed by the Center for Disease Control for children in USA (2000CDC US) or the UK 1990 growth charts for British children. It is unknown whether Nigerian children grow to the same height or at the same tempo as American or British children.Objective and hypotheses: To compare the growth of the Nigerian child t...

In Case of Osteogenesis Imperfecta Transmission in Pregnancy: Check Vitamine D and Calcium Status of the Mother

Porquet-Bordes Valerie , Groussolles Marion , De Gauzy Jerome Sales , Edouard Thomas , Salles Jean Pierre

Background: A one-month-old girl was referred to our unit for osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). She was the first child of non consanguineous parents. The father had no history of fracture. The mother, 28 years-old, presented with a severe OI, short adult height (140 cm), moderate scoliosis. She had more than 20 limb fractures, no vertebral fracture and bowing limbs without need of surgery. She received Bisphosphonates during 3 years until 12 years of age. Then sh...

NBAS Mutations, a New Monogenic Cause of DISOPHAL, a New Syndrome with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)

Rothenbuhler Anya , Maluenda Jerome , Aumont Cedric , Picard Veronique , Bougneres Pierre , Melki Judith

Background: While non-autoimmune T1D is rare in late childhood, few monogenic causes have yet been identified.Objective: 1) to identify the genetic basis of the yet unreported disease phenotype associating late childhood antibody-negative T1D, short stature, optic atrophy (OA), Pelger-Huët anomaly (PHA) of leukocytes and recurrent liver cytolysis: the “DISOPHAL” syndrome; 2) to attract comparable cases for further genetic investigation.</p...

Validating Genetic Markers of Response to Recombinant Human GH in Children with GH Deficiency or Turner Syndrome: Results From the PREDICT Validation Study

Chatelain Pierre , Stevens Adam , De Leonibus Chiara , Clayton Peter , Wojcik Jerome

Introduction: Genetic markers associated with the response to recombinant human GH (r-hGH) have been identified in Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) and Turner Syndrome (TS) children in the PREDICT long-term follow-up (LTFU) prospective study (NCT00699855).1 A validation (VAL) study (NCT01419249) was conducted to confirm association.Methods/design: Inclusion criteria for GHD and TS children were identical in the LTFU and VAL studies (GHD defined...

Genetic Markers Contribute to the PREDICTION of Response to GH in Severe but not Mild GH Deficiency

Stevens Adam , Murray Philip , Wojcik Jerome , Raelson John , Koledova Ekaterina , Chatelain Pierre , Clayton Peter

Background: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with the response to GH therapy have previously been identified in growth hormone deficient (GHD) children in the PREDICT long-term follow-up (LTFU) study (NCT00699855).Objective and hypotheses: To assess the effect of GHD severity on the predictive value of genetic markers of growth response.Method: We used pre-pubertal GHD children (peak GH <10 μg/l) from the ...

Random Forest Classification Predicts Response to Recombinant GH in GH Deficient Children Using Baseline Clinical Parameters and Genetic Markers

Stevens Adam , Murray Philip , Wojcik Jerome , Raelson John , Koledova Ekaterina , Chatelain Pierre , Clayton Peter

Background: Prediction of response to recombinant GH (r-GH) is currently based on regression modelling. This approach generates a prediction equation which can be applied to data from an individual child. However this method can underestimate the effect of inter-dependent variables. Random forest classification (RFC) is an alternative prediction method based on decision trees that is not sensitive to the relationships between variables.Objective and hypo...

Birth weight and diazoxide unresponsiveness strongly predict the likelihood of congenital hyperinsulinism due to a mutation in ABCC8 or KCNJ11

Hewat Thomas , Yau Daphne , Jerome Joseph , Laver Thomas , Houghton Jayne , Shields Beverley , Flanagan Sarah , Patel Kashyap ,

Background: Hyperinsulinism is characterised by inappropriate insulin secretion during hypoglycaemia. Mutations in the KATP channel genes, ABCC8 and KCNJ11, are the most common cause of persistent congenital hyperinsulinism. The diagnosis of KATP hyperinsulinism is key for the clinical management of the condition.Aim: We aimed to determine the clinical features that help to identify KATP hyperinsulinism...

Frontal Behavior Dysfunctions Revealing a Dramatic Progression of Complex Cranial Base Abnormalities in a Severe Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Porquet-Bordes Valerie , Grandgeorge Naia , Moulin Pierre , Cheuret Emmanuel , Boetto Sergio , Sales De Gauzy Jerome , Gennero Isabelle , Tauber Maite , Edouard Thomas , Salles Jean Pierre

Background: In our bone unit, we were following since their younger age, two brothers with a severe osteogenesis imperfecta. We had no genetic confirmation but the severity of the disease combined with unaffected consanguine parents argues for a recessive autosomal transmission. Both present with highly severe form of osteogenesis imperfecta: repeated vertebral and peripheral fractures, long bone deformations, centromedullary nails on the lower limbs, major motor handicap and ...
