Vaccine Against Covid-19 Disease – Present Status of Development
AbstractThe pandemic declaration of Covid-19 disease by World Health Organization (WHO) and subsequent widespread morbidities and mortalities in almost all countries of the world led to the research and development to find out a vaccine against SARS-CoV2 virus. Normally any new vaccine development takes 10 –15 y time but the search for vaccine against SARS-CoV2 is going on at a very fast pace resulting in almost breakthrough in vaccine development by several research institutions and vaccine manufacturers. In pandemic situation, however, the entire process of vaccine development including clinical t rials gets shorte...

AbstractObjectiveTo assess the short term outcome and predictors of mortality among very low birth weight (VLBW) neonates.MethodsThis descriptive study from a tertiary care teaching institute in south India included 239 VLBW neonates who were uniformly managed as per unit ’s protocol and followed up till discharge or death, whichever was earlier. Univariate analysis and logistic regression analysis were done to determine the predictors of mortality. Two logistic regression models were developed and to evaluate their discriminative performance, area under the receiv er operating characteristic curves were calculated.R...

Metabolic Impact of Subclinical Hypothyroidism in Obese Children and Adolescents
AbstractObjectiveSubclinical hypothyroidism is common in children and adolescents with obesity and has been considered to be its effect with no need for treatment. Its metabolic impact has not been evaluated. Therefore the present study was conducted to determine the metabolic impact of obesity related subclinical hypothyroidism.MethodsRetrospective record review of obese children and adolescents between 5 and 18 y of age presenting to pediatric endocrine clinic was done. Four hundred four obese children and adolescents [251 boys, 11.8 (3.2); 5.1 –18 y, BMI SDS 2.4 (0.7); 1.4–6.6] were assessed regarding thyroi...

Nephrolithiasis: Approach to Diagnosis and Management
AbstractAlthough kidney stones are less common in children than in adults, incidence in children is rising. Kidney stones may lead to significant morbidity in addition to escalating medical costs. Clinical presentation is variable. Bilateral kidney stones in a younger child should prompt work-up for primary hyperoxaluria. Metabolic abnormalities are more frequent in children and can result in frequent stone recurrence. Whole exome sequencing data shows genetic defects in about 30% of stone formers. 24  h urine collection should be conducted when patient receives his usual diet and fluid intake with normal activity. In...

Neurological Deterioration in Three Siblings: Exploring the Spectrum of Argininemia
AbstractArgininemia or hyperargininemia is a urea cycle disorder caused by deficiency of the enzyme arginase 1. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. It commonly leads to spastic diplegia in childhood, but other important features include cognitive deterioration and epilepsy. Unlike other disorders of the urea cycle, hyperammonemia is not prominent. The authors report three siblings with genetically proven argininemia who presented with diverse phenotypes but with spasticity being a common feature. Sibling 1 developed motor regression in early childhood, sibling 2 developed delayed motor milestones from early ...

Acinetobacter Sepsis Among Out-born Neonates Admitted to Neonatal Unit in Pediatric Emergency of a Tertiary Care Hospital in North India
ConclusionsAcinetobacter spp. accounts for high burden of sepsis among out-born neonates and is associated with alarmingly high resistance to cephalosporins, fluroquinolones, aminoglycosides, pipercillin-tazobactum, tetracyclines, and carbapenems. Neonates withAcinetobacter spp. sepsis had higher rates of complications, requirement of mechanical ventilation and vasoactive drugs, and poor survival. (Source: Indian Journal of Pediatrics)

Is There Any Link Between Death of Preceding Child and Child Health Care Services Utilization for Subsequent Birth?
AbstractAn important line of inquiry is to find an association between death of preceding child and Child Health Care (CHC) services utilization for subsequent births. Study hypothesized that there was no difference in CHC services utilization for subsequent birth by previous child survival status. Data from National Family Health Survey, 2015 –16, was used. Bivariate analysis and logistic regression were used to assess the results. Result found that if previous child were alive, then 60% and 26% of the succeeding child would get full immunization and postnatal care (PNC), respectively, whereas, if preceding child we...

Time to Diagnosis and Treatment of Childhood Cancer
AbstractOutcome of childhood cancer in low middle-income countries continues to be poor. One of the proposed reasons for this poor outcome is increased time spent in diagnosis and initiation of treatment. The present study was done to quantify the magnitude and types of time intervals in management of childhood cancer. Parents of 111 children with newly diagnosed cancer were interviewed. Median total time interval for entire cohort was 58 d. The most important contributor to this total interval was Referral interval. Gender and use of alternative medicine significantly affected the total interval. Increased primary care ph...
