The incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) has increased in recent decades, as has the incidence of preterm births (<37 weeks). We aimed to evaluate and compare the prevalence of prematurity and early prematurity (<34 weeks) and birth season variability among T1DM and non-T1DM children.

Geographic surveillance can identify hotspots of disease and reveal associations between health and the environment. Our study used emergency department surveillance to investigate geographic disparit...
Kidney transplantation is the best treatment for children with end-stage kidney disease. Early results have improved, but late graft loss is still a major problem. Non-invasive, fully reliable early b...
Prematurity, formula feeding, and early weaning strongly influence enterocyte differentiation. Intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP), an endogenous protein expressed in the intestines, is one enzym...
Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia following SOT is a rare disorder, the risk factors for which are unknown. Our purpose was to analyze a seemingly increased incidence in our center with the aim to iden...
In children with presymptomatic type 1 diabetes, intermittent hyperglycemia and rising HbA1c levels are a known signal of progression towards insulin-dependency. Episodes of hypoglycemia, however, hav...
The aims of this study are: 1. To assess the prevalence of prematurity, especially early prematurity, among T1D patients, and compare it to the prematurity prevalence among the non...
To evaluate the possibility that erythropoietin with early iron supplementation may induce retinopathy of prematurity or worsen this disease. In addition risk factors for the development o...
Depending on disease stage, testicular cancer (TC) treatment consists of an orchidectomy, alone or followed by radiotherapy (RT) or platinum-based chemotherapy (CT). TC survival rates are ...
The Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is one of the leading causes of blindness on the pediatric age worldwide. This pathology is characterized for arrest of the normal vascular and neurona...
The goal of the Early Treatment for Retinopathy of Prematurity Study (ETROP) is to test the hypothesis that earlier treatment in carefully selected cases will result in an overall better v...
A syndrome characterized by multiple system abnormalities including DWARFISM; PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS; PREMATURE AGING; and HEARING LOSS. It is caused by mutations of a number of autosomal recessive genes encoding proteins that involve transcriptional-coupled DNA REPAIR processes. Cockayne syndrome is classified by the severity and age of onset. Type I (classical; CSA) is early childhood onset in the second year of life; type II (congenital; CSB) is early onset at birth with severe symptoms; type III (xeroderma pigmentosum; XP) is late childhood onset with mild symptoms.

The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 3d ed, p53, 78, 80)
A group of recessively inherited diseases that feature progressive muscular atrophy and hypotonia. They are classified as type I (Werdnig-Hoffman disease), type II (intermediate form), and type III (Kugelberg-Welander disease). Type I is fatal in infancy, type II has a late infantile onset and is associated with survival into the second or third decade. Type III has its onset in childhood, and is slowly progressive.
