Rotavirus genotypes co-circulating in Europe between 2006 and 2009 as determined by EuroRotaNet, a pan-European collaborative strain surveillance network
TLDR
The ability of the network to identify strains circulating with an incidence of ⩾1% allowed the identification of possible emerging strains such as G8 and G12 since the beginning of the study; analysis of recent data indicates their increased incidence.
Dietary compliance and life style of children with coeliac disease.
TLDR
Better education about the disease, the availability of GF products, and appropriate food labelling could improve compliance and quality of life.
Effects of Anticonvulsant Therapy on Vitamin D Status in Children: Prospective Monitoring Study
TLDR
Evidence is provided that carbamazepine or sodium valproate can cause hypovitaminosis D in children and the effects of seasonality on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D, parathyroid hormone, and calcium were noticed in patients grouped in classes 0, 2 and 3, as well as in controls.
Macrolide resistance in Streptococcus pyogenes: prevalence, resistance determinants, and emm types.
Multinational study of pneumococcal serotypes causing acute otitis media in children
TLDR
This analysis of several geographically diverse datasets indicates that a limited number of serotypes, largely represented in PCV-7, accounted for the majority of episodes of pneumococcal AOM in children between 6 and 59 months of age.
Varicella-related complications and hospitalisations in a tertiary pediatric medical center before vaccine introduction
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify varicella complications in children and assess the hospitalisation rates in the pre-vaccination era and identified an increase in centralnervous-system complications with age, which seems to be a frequent cause of admission in Greece.
Meningitis registry of hospitalized cases in children: epidemiological patterns of acute bacterial meningitis throughout a 32-year period
TLDR
The MR proved to be a useful tool in the study and the prevention of communicable diseases in correlation with prevention strategies, such as vaccinations, and was able to delineate long-term changes in the epidemiology of bacterial meningitis.
Aseptic Meningitis in Children: Analysis of 506 Cases
TLDR
Enteroviruses accounted for approximately one half of cases of aseptic meningitis, and PCR may reduce the length of hospitalization and plays important role in the diagnosis and management of children with asepsis.
Two doses of a lipid formulation of amphotericin B for the treatment of Mediterranean visceral leishmaniasis.
TLDR
Abatement of fever, reduction in spleen size, and correction of laboratory parameters occurred more quickly among the children who received 2 doses of L-AmB than among the comparison groups, and the total estimated cost of the 2-dose regimen was lower than that of the other regimens.
