The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
The purpose of this review is to describe current concepts in the field of Less Invasive Surfactant Administration (LISA). The use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has become standard for the treatment of premature infants with respiratory problems throughout the world. However, if CPAP fails, technologies like LISA are needed that can combine surfactant delivery and spontaneous breathing with the support of noninvasive modes of ventilation.
To review phenotyping and risk classification of penicillin allergy and provide an update on penicillin allergy delabeling strategies for primary care.
The steady rise in number of youth diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has led to the need to examine transition of care considerations specific to ASD. Improved understanding and guidance addressing these needs will allow pediatric and adult providers to work together to optimize social, medical, and occupational outcomes for these patients.
The role of echocardiography has dramatically changed over the past decade and use of functional echocardiography has become increasingly popular among neonatologists and pediatric intensivists in making clinical decisions in sick infants and children. The purpose of this review is to outline the current capabilities and limitations of functional echocardiography, best practices for its clinical application, and evidence for its utility.
As the incidence of urinary stone disease in children is increasing, identifying dietary risk factors becomes vitally important, especially in the context of targeting interventions to reduce risk for stone formation. Indiscriminant dietary restrictions are not appropriate for paediatric patients.
As the incidence of nephrolithiasis in children doubles every 10 years it is becoming a common disease associated with significant morbidity along with considerable economic burden worldwide. The aim of this review is to summarize current data on the epidemiology and causes of renal stones in children and to provide a frame for the first clinical evaluation of a child with suspected nephrolithiasis.
The current article reviews recent literature related to pediatric and adolescent vaccination, specifically focusing on social determinants of under-immunization, expanding adolescent immunization rates, and new recommendations surrounding the meningococcal serotype B vaccine (MenB).
Biomonitoring studies have shown that children are constantly exposed to complex patterns of chemical and nonchemical exposures. Here, we briefly summarize the rationale for studying multiple exposures, also called mixture, in relation to child health and key statistical approaches that can be used. We discuss advantages over traditional methods, limitations and appropriateness of the context.
The gradual replacement of inactivated whole cell and live attenuated vaccines with subunit vaccines has generally reduced reactogenicity but in many cases also immunogenicity. Although only used when necessary, adjuvants can be key to vaccine dose/antigen-sparing, broadening immune responses to variable antigens, and enhancing immunogenicity in vulnerable populations with distinct immunity. Licensed vaccines contain an increasing variety of adjuvants, with a growing pipeline of adjuvanted vaccines under de...
To summarize and discuss the fundamentals of pediatric tibial tubercle avulsion fractures (TTAFs) including preferred imaging modalities, systems for fracture classification, frequently associated injuries, treatment options, outcomes, and common complications.
Altered epigenetics is central to oncogenesis in many pediatric cancers. Aberrant epigenetic states are induced by mutations in histones or epigenetic regulatory genes, aberrant expression of genes regulating chromatin complexes, altered DNA methylation patterns, or dysregulated expression of noncoding RNAs. Developmental contexts of dysregulated epigenetic states are equally important for initiation and progression of many childhood cancers. As an improved understanding of disease-specific roles and molecu...
This review presents findings from recent studies investigating the role of socioeconomic status (SES) in child development. Studies on associations between SES and different parameters of physical and psychological health, on interventions and possible resilience factors are reviewed.
The purpose of this review is to describe current advances in pediatric precision therapy through innovations in technology and engineering. A multimodal approach of chemotherapy, surgery and/or radiation therapy has improved survival outcomes for pediatric cancer but with significant early and late toxicities. The pediatric population is particularly vulnerable given their age during treatment. Advances in precision interventions discussed include image guidance, ablation techniques, radiation therapy and ...
Current management approaches for asymptomatic neonates at risk of early onset sepsis remain controversial. Strategies based entirely on clinical observation (SCO, serial clinical observation) have gained consensus.
Exciting translational discoveries in recent years have brought realized promise of immunotherapy for children with high-risk leukemias. This review summarizes the current immunotherapeutic landscape with a focus on key clinical trials for patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or acute myeloid leukemia.
The purpose of this review is to describe various forms of hand polydactyly and their different treatment approaches. Hand polydactyly is commonly classified as ulnar (small finger) or radial (thumb). Polydactyly can be sporadic, genetic, and/or associated with syndromic conditions.
Rotavirus is a leading cause of viral acute gastroenteritis in infants. Neonates hospitalized in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) are at risk of rotavirus infections with severe outcomes. The administration of rotavirus vaccines is only recommended, in the United States and Canada, upon discharge from the NICU despite rotavirus vaccines being proven well tolerated and effective in these populations, because of risks of live-attenuated vaccine administration in immunocompromised patients and theoretical...
Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is an emerging clinical tool in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Recent literature describing the use of POCUS for various applications in the NICU has garnered increased interest among neonatologists.
The current review aims to highlight the frequency of RAS mutations in pediatric leukemias and solid tumors and to propose strategies for targeting oncogenic RAS in pediatric cancers.
This review aims to provide primary care physicians with updates on recent literature regarding clubfoot and answer questions asked by parents and caregivers of children with clubfoot. The topics discussed include prenatal counseling, relapse after Ponseti treatment, long-term outcomes following successful treatment of clubfoot, and the effect of diagnosis and treatment on the parent or caregiver.
Despite advances in therapy over the past decades, overall survival for children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has not exceeded 70%. In this review, we highlight recent insights into risk stratification for patients with pediatric AML and discuss data driving current and developing therapeutic approaches.
The orthopaedic treatment of children with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita has evolved steadily over the past two decades. Interrelated factors have spurred this on, including better appreciation of the functional potential of persons with arthrogryposis, development of newer procedures specific for the arthrogrypotic deformities, and outcomes studies that provide understanding of the overall capabilities of adults with arthrogryposis and follow-up to determine which treatments were beneficial and which ...
First-time parents often turn to friends and family for advice regarding feeding, sleeping, bathing, diapering and toilet training, and childhood illnesses. Unfortunately, parents may at times be given incorrect and potentially dangerous advice as several widely embraced parenting practices are no longer deemed appropriate. In addition, young children are cared for by family and friends - many of whom are older and may still subscribe to outdated parenting practices.Parents and grandparents are not the only...
