Mutations of the Down–regulated in adenoma (DRA) gene cause congenital chloride diarrhoea
A major transport function of the human intestine involves the absorption of chloride in exchange for bicarbonate1. We have studied a recessively inherited defect of this exchange, congenitalExpand
Maternal postnatal depression and child growth: a European cohort study
BackgroundPrevious studies have reported postpartum depression to be associated with both positive and negative effects on early infant growth. This study examined the hypothesis that maternalExpand
Pancreatitis in children and adolescents.
Analysis of CFTR, SPINK1, PRSS1 and AAT Mutations in Children With Acute or Chronic Pancreatitis
Objectives: Defects of PRSS1, SPINK1, CFTR and AAT are considered causative or predisposing to pancreatitis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of these defects into molecular pathologyExpand
Infantile colic, prolonged crying and maternal postnatal depression

Prevalence of primary adult lactose malabsorption in Poland.
Lactose-absorption capacity was examined in 275 apparently healthy Polish adolescents and adults (214 females and 61 males with an average age of 29.1 years) using a field version of theExpand
IgG subclass distribution of hepatitis B surface antigen antibodies induced in children with chronic hepatitis B infection after interferon-alpha therapy.
The IgG subclass distribution of antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) was investigated in 19 children with chronic active hepatitis B infection who showed a complete serologicalExpand
Endoscopic ligation of esophageal varices for prophylaxis of first bleeding in children and adolescents with portal hypertension: preliminary results of a prospective study.
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) is effective in controlling rebleeding from esophageal varices in children, but there is no data on the use of EVL to prevent initial bleeding.Expand
Vitamin D Supplementation and Status in Infants: A Prospective Cohort Observational Study
Objective: Vitamin D status in infants depends on supplementation. We examined the vitamin D status in relation to supplementation dose and scheme in infants. Patients and Methods: One hundredExpand
Genetic background of congenital chloride diarrhea in high-incidence populations: Finland, Poland, and Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
Congenital chloride diarrhea (CLD) is an inherited intestinal disorder caused by mutations in the down-regulated in adenoma gene. In Finland, the disease is prevalent because of a founder effect, andExpand
