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

08:00 EDT 10th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

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...

Human Parechovirus Meningitis with Adverse Neurodevelopmental Outcome: A Case Report.

Human parechovirus (HPeV) infections usually cause mild symptoms in children. Although their contribution to severe disease in young children - such as neonatal sepsis and meningo-encephalitis - is in...

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...

Term-equivalent functional brain maturational measures predict neurodevelopmental outcomes in premature infants.

Term equivalent age (TEA) brain MRI identifies preterm infants at risk for adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. But some infants may experience neurodevelopmental impairments even in the absence of ne...

Longitudinal Association Between Human Parechovirus Central Nervous System Infection And Gross-motor Neurodevelopment in Young Children.

A paucity of studies investigated the association between human parechovirus (HPeV) central nervous system (CNS) infection and motor and neurocognitive development of children. This study describes th...

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.
