Vitamin D supplementation to prevent acute respiratory tract infections: systematic review and meta-analysis of individual participant data
TLDR
Vitamin D supplementation was safe and it protected against acute respiratory tract infection overall and patients who were very vitamin D deficient and those not receiving bolus doses experienced the most benefit.
Immunogenicity and tolerability of recombinant serogroup B meningococcal vaccine administered with or without routine infant vaccinations according to different immunization schedules: a randomized
TLDR
A 4CMenB vaccine is immunogenic against reference strains when administered with routine vaccines at 2, 4, and 6 years of age, producing minimal interference with the response to routine infant vaccinations.
Superior Relative Efficacy of Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Compared With Inactivated Influenza Vaccine in Young Children With Recurrent Respiratory Tract Infections
TLDR
CAIV-T was well tolerated in these children with a history of recurrent respiratory tract infections and demonstrated superior relative efficacy compared with TIV in preventing influenza illness.
Immunogenicity and safety of an investigational multicomponent, recombinant, meningococcal serogroup B vaccine (4CMenB) administered concomitantly with routine infant and child vaccinations: results
TLDR
Lot-to-lot consistency, safety and immunogenicity, and the effect of concomitant vaccination on responses to routine vaccines of an investigational multicomponent vaccine (4CMenB) in this population of healthy 2 month-old infants were assessed.
Macrolide-resistant Mycoplasma pneumoniae: its role in respiratory infection.
TLDR
There is no need to change ML use systematically in the case of mild to moderate disease, but other antibiotics should be prescribed if the symptoms persist or there are signs of a clinical deterioration, according to the severity of the disease.
Guideline for the management of acute sore throat.
TLDR
The European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases established the Sore Throat Guideline Group to write an updated guideline to diagnose and treat patients with acute sore throat and the Centor clinical scoring system can help to identify those patients who have higher likelihood of group A streptococcal infection.
Impact of human coronavirus infections in otherwise healthy children who attended an emergency department†
TLDR
It is suggested that H CoV‐229E and HCoV‐OC43 have a limited clinical and socioeconomic impact on otherwise healthy children and their household contacts, and the HCo V‐NL63 identified recently does not seem to be any different.
Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome: clinical features, genetic basis, diagnosis, and management
TLDR
The clinical features and genetic basis of Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome have been summarized and areas for future studies on an appropriate diagnostic protocol and follow-up care for RSTS are highlighted for better understanding of this disease, establishing standard diagnostic criteria, and providing professional management and follow up care.
Pediatric parechovirus infections.
TLDR
Although it is known that HPeVs play a significant role in various severe pediatric infectious diseases, diagnostic assays are not routinely available in clinical practice and the involvement of HPeV is therefore substantially underestimated.
Safety and Immunogenicity of a 13-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine Compared to Those of a 7-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine Given as a Three-Dose Series with Routine Vaccines in Healthy
TLDR
PCV13 appeared comparable to PCV7 in safety profile and immunogenicity for common serotype, demonstrated functional OPA responses for all 13 serotypes, and did not interfere with immune responses to concomitantly administered DTaP-HBV-IPV/Hib vaccine.
