OBJECTIVE: To assess preventive care measure prescribing in children exposed to glucocorticoids and identify prescribing variation according to subspecialty and patient characteristics. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of children initiating chronic glucocorticoids in the gastroenterology, nephrology, and rheumatology divisions at a pediatric tertiary care center. Outcomes included 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) and lipid testing, pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPV) and influenza vaccination, and stress dose hydrocortisone prescriptions...

This review focuses key advances in different pediatric fields that were published in Italian Journal of Pediatrics and in international journals in 2015. Weaning studies continue to show promise for preventing food allergy. New diagnostic tools are available for identifying the allergic origin of allergic-like symptoms. Advances have been reported in obesity, short stature and autoimmune endocrine disorders. New molecules are offered to reduce weight gain and insulin-resistance in obese children. Regional investigations may provide suggestions for preventing short stature...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: There is a disproportionate burden of human papillomavirus (HPV) -related genital tract disease in patients with CKD and kidney transplantation; therefore, the potential effect of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil; Merck GmbH, Darmstadt, Germany) is profound. Immune abnormalities associated with CKD and immunosuppression may prevent optimal vaccine response. Our objective was to determine antibody response to the HPV vaccine in adolescent girls with CKD...

PURPOSE: To develop French recommendations about the management of vaccinations, the screening of cervical cancer and the prevention of pneumocystis pneumonia in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: Thirty-seven experts qualified in internal medicine, rheumatology, dermatology, nephrology and pediatrics have selected recommendations from a list of proposition based on available data from the literature. For each recommendation, the level of evidence and the level of agreement among the experts were specified...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention convened panels of anthrax experts to review and update guidelines for anthrax postexposure prophylaxis and treatment. The panels included civilian and military anthrax experts and clinicians with experience treating anthrax patients. Specialties represented included internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, infectious disease, emergency medicine, critical care, pulmonology, hematology, and nephrology. Panelists discussed recent patients with systemic anthrax; reviews of published, unpublished, and proprietary data regarding antimicrobial drugs and anthrax antitoxins; and critical care measures of potential benefit to patients with anthrax...

The main aim of this study was to compare the response to trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine in children who received a kidney transplant and were on steroid-free versus steroid-based immunosuppression. Groups: 1. Kidney transplant recipients on steroid-free immunosuppression (n=27); 2. Kidney transplant recipients on steroid-based immunosuppression (n=39); 3. Healthy controls (n=21). Hemagglutination inhibition titers against 2007-2008 A/H1N1 and A/H3N2 and B strains were measured before and 8 weeks postvaccination...

We aimed to evaluate the acceptance of pandemic influenza A 2009 vaccination in our high risk children with chronic renal diseases. A total of 64 children/parents of pediatric nephrology department were approached to fill in a standardised questionnaire on influenza immunization profile. The H1N1 vaccination rates were 57.1% for transplant recipients, 61.5% for patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD), 36.4% for patients with various stages of chronic renal disease (CRD) and 26.7% for patients with glomerulonephritis (GN) on immunosuppressive therapy...

The purpose of the study was to estimate the efficacy of vaccination against viral hepatitis type B in children with the nephrotic syndrome and to estimate the probable cause-effect relationship between the occurrence of the nephrotic syndrome and infectious diseases and vaccination in children. The retrospective study comprised 235 nephrotic children aged 1-14 years hospitalized in the Department of Pediatric Nephrology at University Children Hospital, Lublin, between 1982 and 1997. 56 nephrotic children aged 2-13 years received vaccination against viral hepatitis type B...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of varicella vaccine in children with nephrotic syndrome, including those taking low-dose, alternate-day prednisone. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, open-label, multicenter clinical trial of varicella vaccine in a 2-dose regimen in US and Canadian children (12 months to <18 years) with nephrotic syndrome. Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) antibody levels were measured after the first and second vaccine dose and yearly for 2 years...

Children with kidney disease are at risk for serious varicella-related complications. To evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of a two-dose regimen of varicella vaccine in children (aged 1-19 years) with chronic renal insufficiency and on dialysis, the Southwest Pediatric Nephrology Study Group (SPNSG) undertook an open-label, multi-center, prospective 3-year clinical trial. Ninety-six patients without history of varicella were enrolled. Fifty (mean age 4.2 years) had no detectable varicella zoster virus (VZV) antibody; 98% seroconverted after the two-dose regimen...

BACKGROUND: Diminished antibody responses to the dosage of hepatitis B (HB) vaccine indicated for healthy adults has led to a greater dosage recommendation (40 microg of HB surface antigen [HBsAg]) for adults with chronic renal failure (CRF), but an appropriate dosage for children with CRF has not been established. METHODS: Seventy-eight children and adolescents with CRF (22 patients, predialysis; 42 patients, chronic dialysis therapy; 14 renal transplant recipients) aged 1 to 19 years (mean, 10...

Twenty-three pediatric dialysis patients [6 hemodialysis (HD) and 17 peritoneal dialysis (PD)], with a mean age of 13.9 years, were vaccinated against hepatitis B virus and their seroconversion rates were analyzed. There was no significant difference in the mean duration of dialysis between the HD and PD groups, or between responders and nonresponders to the vaccine. In the HD group, there was a response rate of 83.3% while the PD patients had a response rate of 88.2%. The only patients failing to seroconvert after the three vaccine series all had systemic lupus erythematosus and were taking oral corticosteroids...
