Infants with hyperglycaemia are at an increased risk of having retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), a recent study has found. Meanwhile, no such effect was observed for serum levels of glycated albumin (GlyA).
Colchicine therapy may be discontinued after prolonged remission in some children with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), suggests a study, noting, however, that patients with arthritis or myalgia are prone to an attack following treatment cessation.
Children with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) who receive antivascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapy fare better than their counterparts who undergo primary laser treatment, a study has found.
Girls who have been exposed to abuse have a delayed structural maturation pattern specific to emotion circuitry, which is potentially an adaptive mechanism that enhances threat generalization, a study has found. On the other hand, physical neglect correlates with a broader brain-wide pattern of advanced structural maturation.
The concomitant use of nephrotoxic medication along with elevated trough levels of serum vancomycin appear to worsen the risk of vancomycin-induced nephrotoxicity (VIN) in paediatric patients, a recent study has found.
