Evaluation of Functional, Neuroplastic and Biomechanical Changes Induced by an Intensive, Playful Early-morning Treatment Including Lower Limbs (EARLY-HABIT-ILE) in Preschool Children With Uni and Bilateral Cerebral Palsy

2019-07-16 10:38:28 | BioPortfolio


An urgent priority in the field of paediatric neurorehabilitation is the development of effective early motor interventions.

Hand and Arm Bimanual Intensive Therapy Including Lower Extremities (= HABIT-ILE) applies the concepts of motor skill learning and intensive training to both the Upper Extremities (UE) and Lower Extremities (LE) and has been shown to improve aspects of motor function of the UE and LE in school age children with unilateral and bilateral Cerebral Palsy (CP) across the 3 levels of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICFDH). The principles and content of HABIT-ILE can be applied to pre-school children and this method is highly promising for early rehabilitation.


The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of two weeks of early HABIT-ILE on gross motor function in pre-school children with unilateral and and bilateral Cerebral Paralysy (CP), in comparison with two weeks of usual motor activity including usual rehabilitation (control group).

Skipping breakfast and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level in school children: a preliminary analysis.

The objective of the study is to examine whether the increased levels of non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-c) are associated with skipping breakfast among school children.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.

Conditions with abnormally low levels of LIPOPROTEINS in the blood. This may involve any of the lipoprotein subclasses, including ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins); BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low-density lipoproteins); and PREBETA-LIPOPROTEINS (very-low-density lipoproteins).

A 6.6-kDa protein component of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Apo C-I displaces APO E from lipoproteins, modulate their binding to receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL), and thereby decrease their clearance from plasma. Elevated Apo C-I levels are associated with HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA and ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Antilipemic agent that lowers cholesterol and triglycerides. It decreases low density lipoproteins and increases high density lipoproteins.

Low-density subclass of the high-density lipoproteins, with particle sizes between 8 to 13 nm.
