International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC): rationale and methods.
The International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC), was founded to maximize the value of epidemiological research into asthma and allergic disease, by establishing a standardized methodology and facilitating international collaboration.
Worldwide trends in the prevalence of asthma symptoms: phase III of the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC)
Findings indicate that international differences in asthma symptom prevalence have reduced, particularly in the 13–14 year age group, with decreases in prevalence in English speaking countries and Western Europe and increases inPrevalence in regions where prevalence was previously low.
Worldwide variations in prevalence of symptoms of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis in children: the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC)
Prevalence surveys were conducted among representative samples of school children from locations in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North and South America to study the prevalence of asthma and allergies in Childhood.
Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly in the First Two Years of Life: A Prospective Cohort Study
There is a wide range of head shapes in infants, and prevalence of NSP increases to 4 months but diminishes as infants grow older, and limited head rotation, lower activity levels, and supine sleep position seem to be important determinants.
Sudden infant death syndrome and unclassified sudden infant deaths: a definitional and diagnostic approach.
The definition of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) originally appeared in 1969 and was modified 2 decades later, justifying additional refinement of the definition to incorporate epidemiologic features, risk factors, pathological features, and ancillary test findings.
Short sleep duration in middle childhood: risk factors and consequences.
Long sleep duration was shown to be an independent risk factor for obesity/overweight and attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder scores (both parent and teachers Conners Rating Scales) did not differ with sleep duration.
Clinical Characteristics and Serum Essential Fatty Acid Levels in Hyperactive Children
Significantly more hyperactive children had auditory, visual, language, reading, and learning difficulties, and the birth weight ofhyperactive children was significantly lower than that of controls, but there was no increase in asthma, eczema, or other allergies.
