SUMMARY OBJECTIVE: to assess the progression of pediatric cystic fibrosis (CF) patients' nutritional status during the first 12 months after diagnosis and to establish its association with neonatal screening and clinical variables. Patients were recruited from two reference centers in Southern Brazil. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study was carried out with all the patients diagnosed between 2009 and 2014. Anthropometric, clinic and neonatal screening were collected from medical files. Analysis of anthropometric markers over time was performed by generalized estimating equations. A multivariate regression analysis model to...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common autosomal recessive diseases in Caucasian populations [1]; however, it is quite rare in the Middle East [2]. Although rare, it is important to raise awareness regarding CF in the Middle East, as the outcomes are comparatively poor and the life expectancy is roughly 50% of that reported in Western countries. The median lifespan of CF patients in the Middle East is between 10 and 20  years [2].

ABSTRACT The study of the human microbiome-and, more recently, that of the respiratory system-by means of sophisticated molecular biology techniques, has revealed the immense diversity of microbial colonization in humans, in human health, and in various diseases. Apparently, contrary to what has been believed, there can be nonpathogenic colonization of the lungs by microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Although this physiological lung microbiome presents low colony density, it presents high diversity. However, some pathological conditions lead to a loss of that diversity, with increasing concentrations of so...

RESUMO Objetivo: Comparar a espessura muscular e a gordura subcut ânea entre pacientes com fibrose cística (FC) e controles saudáveis e correlacionar os achados ultrassonográficos com variáveis nutricionais, clínicas e de função pulmonar. Métodos: Foram incluídos sujeitos (6 a 18 anos) com o diagnóstico de FC e indivíduos saudáveis. Foram realizadas medidas antropométricas, avaliação ultrassonográfica da espessura muscular e da gordura subcutânea do tríceps, quadríceps e da região...
