Lead Exposure during Early Human Development and DNA Methylation of Imprinted Gene Regulatory Elements in Adulthood

Conclusions: Our findings provide evidence for early childhood lead exposure resulting in sex-dependent and gene-specific DNA methylation differences in the DMRs of PEG3, IGF2/H19 and PLAGL1/HYMAI in adulthood.

ConclusionEven though the risk for early death has declined overall with advances in diagnosis and therapy, special attention needs to be paid to infants and children with AML and hepatic tumors, who are especially at risk.

ConclusionsThere is international variation in opinions and clinical practice regarding screening for subsequent asymptomatic meningiomas among at risk CAYA cancer survivors. Decision-making regarding interventions of asymptomatic meningiomas are largely driven by clinical characteristics. These valuable insights into current clinical practice will inform surveillance guidelines for CAYA cancer survivors.

We report outcomes of our initial experience with LP in 38 children from 2 months of age. Materials and Methods From June 2015 to December 2017 38 children aged 2-60 months (mean age 1.7 years) underwent LP for correction of PUJ obstruction. The mean pre operative anteroposterior diameter of the renal pelvis (APD) was 43,5mm and all patients had hydronephrosis (APD 21.4-76 mm) and obstructed curve on diuretic renogram. Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty was the performed technique. Results are reported. Results Mean operative time was 107 minutes (70-180) with no conversion to open procedure. Pain control was needed mainly in the ...

AbstractMelatonin is an indole produced by the pineal gland at night under normal light or dark conditions, and its levels, which are higher in children than in adults, begin to decrease prior to the onset of puberty and continue to decline thereafter. Apart from circadian regulatory actions, melatonin has significant apoptotic, angiogenic, oncostatic, and antiproliferative effects on various cancer cells. Particularly, the ability of melatonin to inhibit skeletomuscular sarcoma, which most commonly affects children, teenagers, and young adults, is substantial. In the past few decades, the vast majority of references have ...

Exercise is recommended for the healthy population as it increases fitness and prevents diseases. Moreover, exercise is also applied as an adjunct therapy for patients with various chronic diseases including cancer. Childhood cancer is a rare, heterogeneous disease that differs from adult cancer. Improved therapeutic strategies have increased childhood cancer survival rates to above 80% in developed countries. Although this is higher than the average adult cancer survival rate of about 50%, therapy results often in substantial long-term side effects in childhood cancer survivors. Exercise in adult cancer patients has many ...

Childhood cancer survivors (CCSs) from high-grade malignancies, such as high-risk neuroblastoma, have been increased, and second malignant neoplasm, becomes a serious problem for CCSs. However, detailed reports about rare types of second cancer such as gastric cancer remain limited. We herein reported a female patient who developed diffuse type gastric carcinoma after 21 years from completion of treatment to high-risk neuroblastoma. We reviewed the previous cohort studies for second gastrointestinal cancer in CCSs and the case reports with second gastric carcinoma for CCSs. We presumed second gastric cancer was refractory ...
