It is suspected that one of the children, an infant, may have infected the parents. Park et al.

The child was probably infected by an adult family member (...) reported nothing about the role of the child, or other children, in the spread of the infection. Pung et al.

The article told us little or nothing about the chain of infection. As far as we can see, very few, if any, reported cases of virus transmission from chil- dren have been published, but the material is too scarce to be used as a basis

[Effect of an intervention based on child-care centers to reduce risk behaviors for obesity in preschool children]. Preschool age is a critical stage for health promotion and prevention of obesity, which is an emerging public health problem in children.

179. Does general anesthesia affect neurodevelopment in infants and children? Full Text available with Trip Pro

Does general anesthesia affect neurodevelopment in infants and children? General anesthesia has been unequivocally linked to abnormal development of the central nervous system, leading to neurocognitive impairments in laboratory models. In vitro and in vivo studies have consistently shown that exposure to GABA agonists (eg, volatile anesthetics, midazolam, and propofol) or NMDA antagonists (eg, ketamine, isoflurane, and nitrous oxide) produces dose dependent and developmental age dependent (...) effects on various neuronal transmission systems. Exposure to these drugs increases neuronal cell death in juvenile animals including rats, mice, and non-human primates. The possibility of anesthetic induced neurotoxicity occurring in children has led to concerns about the safety of pediatric anesthesia. A spectrum of behavioral changes has been documented after general anesthetic exposure in young children, including emergence delirium, which may be evidence of toxicity. Most clinical studies
