Limited association between markers of stress during pregnancy and fetal growth in ‘Born into Life’, a new prospective birth cohort
ConclusionMaternal stress during pregnancy was not associated with birthweight. The inverse correlation between PSS scores and cortisol levels may indicate other mechanisms for maternal stress on child outcomes than the previous explanation of hypothalamic‐pituitary‐adrenal axis activity.

Retrospective observational study indicates that the paediatric assessment triangle may suggest the severity of Kawasaki disease
We examined whether the paediatric assessment triangle (PAT) could predict the severity of Kawasaki disease. MethodsWe enroled patients diagnosed with Kawasaki disease between July 2012 and June 2016 at the emergency department of Tokyo Metropolitan Children's Medical Center in Tokyo, Japan. Triage nurses assigned participants to unstable or stable PAT groups. We compared the incidence of coronary artery aneurysms (CAA), the Kobayashi score, which measures resistance to intravenous immunoglobulin treatment, and the incidence of initial treatment resistance. ResultsOf the 420 participants, who were aged 0‐145 months with ...

Literature overview highlights lack of paediatric donation protocols but identifies common themes that could guide their development
ConclusionScientific publications in English on paediatric donation protocols are very scarce. No comprehensive paediatric donation protocol was found. We identified several recurring themes in the literature that could be used to develop such protocols.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. (Source: Acta Paediatrica)

Prescriptive birthweight charts can improve the prediction of adverse outcomes in very preterm infants who are small for gestational age
ConclusionThe prescriptive birthweight chart, which excluded infants with IUGR, was the most effective chart when it came to identifying clinically important risk increases in SGA infants. (Source: Acta Paediatrica)

Younger age and in situ duration of peripheral intravenous catheters were risk factors for extravasation in a retrospective paediatric study
Abstract AimEpidemiological data on the incidence and risk factors of extravasation of peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVC) in neonates and children are scarce and that is what this study explored. MethodsThis was a one‐year retrospective study of all neonates and paediatric intensive care patients with at least one recorded PIVC at the Geneva University Hospitals, Switzerland, in 2013. The extravasation rate was determined for all patients, including neonates below 28 days, and for all PIVCs. Multivariate analysis of the associated risk factors was performed. ResultsWe analysed 1,300 PIVC in 695 paediatric patients w...

Children with cow's milk allergy following an elimination diet had normal growth but relatively low plasma leptin at age two
Abstract AimTo assess nutrient intake, growth and nutritional status of infants with cow's milk allergy (CMA) who follow a therapeutic elimination diet since the first few months of life. MethodsSixty infants younger than 4 months of age with challenge‐proven CMA and 60 healthy age‐matched children were investigated. Anthropometric and body composition (BC) were assessed up to 24 months. Dietary intake was recorded by the parents for 3 consecutive days before visits at 6, 12, 18 and 24 months. Blood albumin, prealbumin, retinol binding protein and metabolic related hormones were examined at 24 months. ResultsThe averag...

Long ‐chain polyunsaturated fatty acids decline rapidly in milk from mothers delivering extremely preterm indicating the need for supplementation
ConclusionA rapid reduction in LCPUFA content in the mother′s milk during the lactation period emphasises the importance of fatty acid supplementation to infants born extremely preterm, at least during the period corresponding to the third trimester, when rapid development of the brain and adipose tissue require high levels of LCPUFAs.This article is protected by copyright.
