REVIEW
Andrew J Pollard, Adam Finn, Nigel Curtis
Non-specific effects (NSE) or heterologous effects of vaccines are proposed to explain observations in some studies that certain vaccines have an impact beyond the direct protection against infection with the specific pathogen for which the vaccines were designed. The importance and implications of such effects remain controversial. There are several known immunological mechanisms which could lead to NSE, since it is widely recognised that the generation of specific immunity is initiated by non-specific innate immune mechanisms that may also have wider effects on adaptive immune function...

BACKGROUND: Children surviving after spina bifida repair often have significant disability, the consequences of which may be more profound in low-income countries. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to measure quality of life (QOL) reported by children with spina bifida in Uganda, and to define factors associated with QOL. METHODS: QOL was measured using both the Health Utilities Index (HUI3) Tool and a visual analogue scale (VAS) marked from 0 to 10. In keeping with the WHO definition of QOL, further analysis was conducted using subjective QOL scores (using the VAS)...

BACKGROUND: European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) guidelines for diagnosing paediatric coeliac disease (CD) were revised in 2012. This enabled serological diagnosis in a selective group of symptomatic children using anti-tissue transglutaminase (anti-tTG) titre, antiendomysial antibodies (EMA) and HLA DQ2/DQ8 status. However, observing variations in the availability of serological tests for CD within our region, we conducted a countrywide survey to explore the diversity of these tests for all paediatric centres...

OBJECTIVES: This study is an analysis of the contribution of pre-existing medical conditions to unintentional fatal child (0-14 years) drowning and a of critique prevention stratagems, with an exploration of issues of equity in recreation. DESIGN: This study is a total population, cross-sectional audit of all demographic, forensic and on-site situational details surrounding unintentional fatal drowning of children 0-14 years in Australia for the period of 1 July 2002 to 30 June 2012...

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major cause of cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma and end-stage liver disease. One hundred thirty million to 150 million people have chronic HCV infection, among them 11 million are younger than 15 years of age. This review summarises the epidemiology and characteristics of HCV infection in children, and highlights the role of the new upcoming therapies in HCV-related liver complications.

OBJECTIVE: We systematically evaluated health and nutrition programmes to identify context-specific interventional packages that might help to prioritise the implementation of programmes for reducing stunting in low and middle income countries (LMICs). METHODS: Electronic databases were used to systematically review the literature published between 1980 and 2015. Additional articles were identified from the reference lists and grey literature. Programmes were identified in which nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions had been implemented for children under 5 years of age in LMICs...

BACKGROUND: Inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs) underlie a substantial proportion of paediatric disease burden but their genetic diagnosis can be challenging using the traditional approaches. METHODS: We designed and validated a next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel of 226 IEM genes, created six overlapping phenotype-based subpanels and tested 102 individuals, who presented clinically with suspected childhood-onset IEMs. RESULTS: In 51/102 individuals, NGS fully or partially established the molecular cause or identified other actionable diagnoses...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency of medication errors by caregivers at home in neonates discharged from the neonatal intensive care unit and to identify the associated risk factors. METHODS: A descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted in the High Risk Newborn Follow-up Clinic of our institute, on a sample of 166 children, <3 months old. The medications prescribed (syrup preparations of vitamin D, multivitamins, calcium, iron and levetiracetam, tablet L-thyroxine and ursodeoxycholic acid and human milk fortifier powder) were noted from the discharge summary...

REVIEW
Ameenat Lola Solebo, Lucinda Teoh, Jugnoo Rahi
An estimated 14 million of the world's children are blind. A blind child is more likely to live in socioeconomic deprivation, to be more frequently hospitalised during childhood and to die in childhood than a child not living with blindness. This update of a previous review on childhood visual impairment focuses on emerging therapies for children with severe visual disability (severe visual impairment and blindness or SVI/BL).For children in higher income countries, cerebral visual impairment and optic nerve anomalies remain the most common causes of SVI/BL, while retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and cataract are now the most common avoidable causes...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence and risk factors for functional constipation (FC) in adolescent Nigerians. METHOD: A cross-sectional study was conducted in rural and urban areas of two states in the southern part of Nigeria. Adolescents aged 10-18 years were recruited from 11 secondary schools, using a stratified random sampling technique. A validated self-administered questionnaire on Rome III criteria for diagnosing FC and its predisposing factors was filled by each participant in a classroom setting...

REVIEW
Debbie Matthews, Louise Bath, Wolfgang Högler, Avril Mason, Arlene Smyth, Mars Skae
Pubertal induction in girls with ovarian insufficiency aims to mimic normal puberty, a highly complex process. Here we amalgamate the sparse global evidence and propose three options for pubertal induction regimens including oral ethinyloestradiol, and oral and transdermal 17β-oestradiol. The introduction of progestogens is discussed and the transition to hormone supplementation for adult women. The merits and disadvantages of the different options are detailed. The available evidence indicates that transdermal 17β-oestradiol has the most favourable efficacy, safety and cost profile but randomised controlled trials are urgently required to determine which regimen provides the best clinical outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease with diverse clinical courses. Despite improvement in survival outcomes in the recent decades, sequelae of the disease remain a concern. This study aimed to provide information on the long-term outcomes in patients with LCH, particularly on the sequelae and any associated factors. METHOD: Medical records of patients with diagnosis of LCH and being managed in our centre were retrospectively reviewed...
