The purpose of this study is to compare growth and risk factors of metabolic syndrome among children born preterm and children born healthy term at school age


Effect of Testosterone Replacement on Insulin Resistance

This study aims to determine whether testosterone replacement improves insulin sensitivity in non-obese men with low testosterone and the metabolic syndrome. The metabolic syndrome includes three of the following five conditions, 1) an elevated blood pressure (greater than 130/85), 2) a triglyceride level greater than 150 mg/dl, 3) an HDL-cholesterol less than 40 mg/dl, 4) glucose levels greater than 100 mg/dl, and 5) a waist measurement greater than 40 inches.

Study of Chronic Degenerative Diseases

The prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) in children have been increasing in parallel at an alarming rate. In particular, the increasing prevalence of type 2 DM is attributable to genetic factors, clinical (waist circumference, adiposity and physical condition) and biochemical (insulin secretion and sensitivity, lipids and inflammation) risk, each of which represents an independent risk. As has already studied and published in the investigators' group, the ...


Effect of Arginine Supplementation in the Metabolic Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to determine whether oral supplementation with one form of arginine improves vascular endothelial function in healthy subjects with risk factors associated with the metabolic syndrome

Down Syndrome Metabolic Health Study

The purpose of this research study is to determine which measures best capture cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) risk in children and adolescents with Down syndrome (DS). We hypothesize that DS is associated with worse cardiometabolic risk factors for a given body mass index compared to controls. This difference arises at least in part, from increased fat tissue.

Oral Language in Children With Down Syndrome

The objective of this research is to verify the language of children with Down syndrome concerning lexical, syntactic and semantic aspects using MLU. The hypothesis is that children with Down syndrome will present low performance, regarding not only the quantitative measures as MLU-m, MLU-w, GM-1 and GM-2, but also regarding the qualitative aspects of their production, when compared to children with typical development.

Fiber Use in Pediatric Short Bowel Syndrome

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a form of disease that results from removal of a significant portion of the intestine leading to poor nutrient absorption. Infants with short bowel syndrome suffer from diarrhea and poor growth. The care of these infants is limited by the lack of effective therapies. Soluble fiber (guar gum) is an indigestible form of sugar that is mostly contained in fruits and vegetables. Soluble fiber can reduce the severity and duration of persistent (constant...

A 16 Week Study to Evaluate the Effect on Insulin Sensitivity of Valsartan (320 mg) and Hydrochlorothiazide (25 mg) Combined and Alone, in Patients With Metabolic Syndrome

Feasibility of Identifying a Chinese Study Population and Eligible Pediatric Cancer Cases, and Linking the Two Groups to Assess the Role of Periconceptional Folic Acid Supplements in Risk of Pediatric Cancer.

Background: - Pregnant women are encouraged to take the vitamin folate. It helps prevent some birth defects. Children of mothers who take it also have less risk of some cancers. Between 1993 and 1995, some women in China took the vitamin daily before and during early pregnancy. Another group did not. This study will follow up on children born to both sets of women. (The children were born between 1994 and 1996.) Researchers will use these data to study the link between f...

Study on Tolerability of Levodopa/Carbidopa in Children With Angelman Syndrome

This study is designed to determine the highest dose of levodopa/carbidopa that can be tolerated without any serious side effects by children with Angelman syndrome. It has been hypothesized that levodopa may lead to an improvement in the neurodevelopment and abnormal movements (e.g. tremors) in children with Angelman syndrome. Data from this study will be used to design a phase II trial to determine the efficacy of levodopa in treating children with Angelman syndrome.

A Sleep Hygiene Intervention to Improve Sleep Quality in Urban, Latino Middle School Children - Phase 1

Sleep is essential for children's daytime functioning and health. Poorer sleep hygiene can negatively affect sleep outcomes in children. Urban Latino children are at greater risk for poor sleep hygiene and poor quality sleep due to exposure to higher levels of urban and cultural stressors. This project aims to refine and test a novel school-based intervention to improve sleep hygiene and in turn, sleep quality in urban Latino middle school children. An existing sleep hygiene in...

The Becoming of Children With Doose Syndrome

Adrenaline Injections to Children Born at Elective CS

Children born after elective C-section have a greater risk of respiratory problems and hypoglycemia - most likely due to a lower concentration of stress hormones compared to children born vaginally. Hypothesis: can we eliminate or reduce the risk of respiratory distress and hypoglycaemia by administrating adrenaline to the newborn.

Using Personal Mobile Technology to Identify Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Children With Down Syndrome (UPLOAD)

This study aims to see if mobile video clips (smartphone recordings) can be used to screen children with Down syndrome to identify those at highest risk of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), so they can be prioritized for an earlier sleep study. Parents will be asked to record short video clips of their child sleeping, and then rate whether they think their child has OSA. Later, children will undergo a sleep study to compare to the ratings.

The "Motoric Cognitive Risk" Syndrome in the Canadian Population

Cognition and locomotion are two human abilities controlled by the brain. Their decline is highly prevalent with aging, and is greater than the simple sum of their respective prevalence, suggesting a complex age-related interplay between cognition and locomotion. Recently, a systematic review and meta-analysis has provided evidence that poor gait performance predicts dementia and, in particular, has demonstrated that "motoric cognitive risk" (MCR) syndrome, which has been descr...

The Effect of Probiotics on Low-grade Inflammation, Microbiota and Risk Factors for Metabolic Syndrome in Obese Children

Metabolic syndrome and thereby obesity is associated with low-grade systemic inflammation and it is likely that this is also the case in children (Ley et al., 2005). It has also been shown that the gut microbiota is different in obese individuals compared to normal weight individuals and that the microbiota seems to have a role in fat storage (Backhead et al, 2004). Intervention study with overweight and normal weight school age children. The children will be randomised ...

CHILDNEPH The Canadian Childhood Nephrotic Syndrome Study

CHILDNEPH is a pan-Canadian project to observe clinical care for children with nephrotic syndrome.
