26. Immunoglobulin treatment for hospitalised infants and young children with respiratory syncytial virus infection. (PubMed)

Immunoglobulin treatment for hospitalised infants and young children with respiratory syncytial virus infection. Millions of children are hospitalised due to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection every year. Treatment is supportive, and current therapies (e.g. inhaled bronchodilators, epinephrine, nebulised hypertonic saline, and corticosteroids) are ineffective or have limited effect. Respiratory syncytial virus immunoglobulin is sometimes used prophylactically to prevent hospital (...) admission from RSV-related illness. It may be considered for the treatment of established severe RSV infection or for treatment in an immunocompromised host, although it is not licenced for this purpose. It is unclear whether immunoglobulins improve outcomes when used as a treatment for established RSV infection in infants and young children admitted to hospital.  OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of immunoglobulins for the treatment of RSV-proven lower respiratory tract infections in children aged up

27. TNF-α blockers for the treatment of Kawasaki disease in children. (PubMed)

TNF-α blockers for the treatment of Kawasaki disease in children. Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute inflammatory vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels) that mainly affects children between six months and five years of age. The vasculitis primarily impacts medium-sized blood vessels, especially in the coronary arteries. In most children, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and aspirin therapy rapidly reduce inflammatory markers, fever, and other clinical symptoms. However, approximately 15 (...) % to 20% of children receiving the initial IVIG infusion show persistent or recurrent fever and are classified as IVIG-resistant. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) is an inflammatory cytokine that plays an important role in host defence against infections and in immune responses. Several studies have established that blocking TNF-α is critical for obtaining anti-inflammatory effects in children with KD, thus, there is a need to identify benefits and risks of TNF-α blockers for the treatment of KD.To

31. Global climate change and health in Canadian children

Global climate change and health in Canadian children Climate change is a reality. Numerous expert authorities warn of the critical need to undertake and adapt environmental efforts to protect human health. Climate change is accelerating, and countries in high latitudes, such as Canada, are experiencing climate change more directly and, for some end points, more dramatically than mid- and low-latitude countries. Children are vulnerable to climate change health effects, and physicians (...) and other health care providers need to be ready to identify, manage, and prevent climate change-related health hazards. This practice point highlights specific, climate change-related threats to the health of children and youth, and provides resources for health care providers. Climate challenges and their health impacts on children are described, based on key Canadian reports and scientifically referenced information.

32. Improving paediatric medications: A prescription for Canadian children and youth

Improving paediatric medications: A prescription for Canadian children and youth In Canada, policies governing medication approval and reimbursement are based largely on adult standards, and the evaluation of new medicines employs adult return-on-investment benchmarks. Research funding for adult diseases is often prioritized over that for childhood illnesses. Canada lags other countries in implementing regulatory and research-related reforms that take the unique characteristics of children (...) and youth into account. To ensure that children and youth have timely access to safe, effective medications, including child-friendly formulations, the federal government must pursue paediatric-focused reforms that consider their unique health needs throughout the drug life cycle. Regulatory reform must be guided by principles of fairness and equity, always recognizing that children deserve the same standards of drug safety, efficacy, availability, and access as adults. Paediatric experts must drive

37. Diagnostic accuracy of lung ultrasound performed by novice versus advanced sonographers for pneumonia in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Diagnostic accuracy of lung ultrasound performed by novice versus advanced sonographers for pneumonia in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis Childhood pneumonia is a leading cause of mortality worldwide. Growing evidence suggests that lung ultrasound (LUS) may be a reliable diagnostic alternative to chest x-ray for childhood pneumonia. However, it is unclear whether sonographer experience affects the diagnostic accuracy of LUS. We summarize the diagnostic accuracy of LUS (...) for pneumonia and compare the performance between novice and advanced sonographers with a systematic review and meta-analysis.We searched PubMed and EMBASE from inception to February 2018 for eligible studies that evaluated the utility of LUS in children suspected of having pneumonia against the reference standard of either imaging results alone or a combination of clinical, laboratory, and imaging results. We reported the study using the Preferred Reporting Items for a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

38. Biannual mass azithromycin distributions and malaria parasitemia in pre-school children in Niger: A cluster-randomized, placebo-controlled trial

Biannual mass azithromycin distributions and malaria parasitemia in pre-school children in Niger: A cluster-randomized, placebo-controlled trial Mass azithromycin distributions have been shown to reduce mortality in preschool children, although the factors mediating this mortality reduction are not clear. This study was performed to determine whether mass distribution of azithromycin, which has modest antimalarial activity, reduces the community burden of malaria.In a cluster-randomized trial (...) conducted from 23 November 2014 until 31 July 2017, 30 rural communities in Niger were randomized to 2 years of biannual mass distributions of either azithromycin (20 mg/kg oral suspension) or placebo to children aged 1 to 59 months. Participants, field staff, and investigators were masked to treatment allocation. The primary malaria outcome was the community prevalence of parasitemia on thick blood smear, assessed in a random sample of children from each community at study visits 12 and 24 months after

39. Immediate Transfusion in African Children with Uncomplicated Severe Anemia. (PubMed)

Immediate Transfusion in African Children with Uncomplicated Severe Anemia. The World Health Organization recommends not performing transfusions in African children hospitalized for uncomplicated severe anemia (hemoglobin level of 4 to 6 g per deciliter and no signs of clinical severity). However, high mortality and readmission rates suggest that less restrictive transfusion strategies might improve outcomes.In this factorial, open-label, randomized, controlled trial, we assigned Ugandan (...) and Malawian children 2 months to 12 years of age with uncomplicated severe anemia to immediate transfusion with 20 ml or 30 ml of whole-blood equivalent per kilogram of body weight, as determined in a second simultaneous randomization, or no immediate transfusion (control group), in which transfusion with 20 ml of whole-blood equivalent per kilogram was triggered by new signs of clinical severity or a drop in hemoglobin to below 4 g per deciliter. The primary outcome was 28-day mortality. Three other

40. Transfusion Volume for Children with Severe Anemia in Africa. (PubMed)

Transfusion Volume for Children with Severe Anemia in Africa. Severe anemia (hemoglobin level, <6 g per deciliter) is a leading cause of hospital admission and death in children in sub-Saharan Africa. The World Health Organization recommends transfusion of 20 ml of whole-blood equivalent per kilogram of body weight for anemia, regardless of hemoglobin level.In this factorial, open-label trial, we randomly assigned Ugandan and Malawian children 2 months to 12 years of age with a hemoglobin level (...) of less than 6 g per deciliter and severity features (e.g., respiratory distress or reduced consciousness) to receive immediate blood transfusion with 20 ml per kilogram or 30 ml per kilogram. Three other randomized analyses investigated immediate as compared with no immediate transfusion, the administration of postdischarge micronutrients, and postdischarge prophylaxis with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. The primary outcome was 28-day mortality.A total of 3196 eligible children (median age, 37 months
