Human Parechovirus 3 in Infants: Expanding our Knowledge of Adverse Outcomes.

Summary of "Human Parechovirus 3 in Infants: Expanding our Knowledge of Adverse Outcomes."

Human parechovirus particularly genotype 3 (HPeV3), is an emerging infection affecting predominantly young infants. The potential for neurological sequelae in a vulnerable subset is increasingly apparent. A review of two epidemics of HPeV infection in 2013 and in 2015 in Queensland, Australia was undertaken, with an emphasis on identifying adverse neurodevelopmental outcome.

Intrafamilial Transmission of Parechovirus A and Enteroviruses in Neonates and Young Infants.

Parechovirus A (PeV-A) is an important cause of sepsis and meningoencephalitis in neonates and young infants. Thus, identifying the source of PeV-A is essential for prevention; however, little is know...

Urinary β2-microglobulin as an early marker of infantile enterovirus and human parechovirus infections.

Enterovirus and human parechovirus (HPeV) are RNA viruses belonging to the family Picornaviridae that frequently infect infants. These infections show a wide variety of clinical manifestations, from m...

Safety of ibuprofen in infants younger than six months: A retrospective cohort study.

We hypothesized (1) that gastrointestinal (GI) and renal adverse events (AE) would occur more often in infants first prescribed ibuprofen before rather than after six months of age and (2) that ibupro...

Carbohydrate supplementation of human milk to promote growth in preterm infants.

Preterm infants are born with low glycogen stores and require higher glucose intake to match fetal accretion rates. In spite of the myriad benefits of breast milk for preterm infants, it may not adequ...

The Safety of Mother's Milk® Tea: Results of a Randomized Double-Blind, Controlled Study in Fully Breastfeeding Mothers and Their Infants.

Various natural products are reported to improve maternal milk supply yet are not necessarily safe for infants. Researchers have not systematically studied galactagogue teas for safety. Research Aim: ...

Renoir: A Randomised, Double-blind, Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Effects of a New Human Milk Fortifier on Growth and Tolerance in Preterm Infants.

Preterm birth (birth before start of the 37th week of gestation) is a major determinant of neonatal morbidity and mortality and has long-term adverse consequences for health and neurodevel...

Nutrition of Premature Infants With Human Breastmilk Fortifier

The objective of the study is to compare two human milk fortifiers with different protein content and LCPUFA in a group of very low birth weight infants.

Target Versus Standard Human Milk Fortification in Very Low Birth Weight Preterm Infants

The prevention of postnatal growth failure in very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm infants is of utmost importance. Standard fortification is the most commonly used supplementation practic...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A genus in the family PICORNAVIRIDAE infecting humans and rodents. The type species is Human parechovirus.

The study of existing genetic knowledge, and the generation of new genetic data, to understand and thus avoid DRUG TOXICITY and adverse effects from toxic substances from the environment.

Mice homozygous for the mutant autosomal recessive gene "scid" which is located on the centromeric end of chromosome 16. These mice lack mature, functional lymphocytes and are thus highly susceptible to lethal opportunistic infections if not chronically treated with antibiotics. The lack of B- and T-cell immunity resembles severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) syndrome in human infants. SCID mice are useful as animal models since they are receptive to implantation of a human immune system producing SCID-human (SCID-hu) hematochimeric mice.

Education which increases the knowledge of the functional, structural, and behavioral aspects of human reproduction.

Patient health knowledge related to medications including what is being used and why as well as instructions and precautions.
