The feasibility of routine use of distal stoma refeeding method in newborns with enterostomy.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2018 12 25:1-101. Epub 2018 Dec 25.

a Department of Pediatric Surgery , Medical University of Innsbruck , Innsbruck , Austria.

Objective: Temporary enterostomies are life-saving in neonatal surgery, however causing loss of fluid electrolyte, delays in distal bowel adaptation and thus delayed growth of newborns. In this study, we aimed to present the method and clinical results of distal stoma refeeding in premature and mature neonates.

Methods: Between January 2012 and December 2017, records of newborn patients who underwent enterostomy and distal stoma refeeding were retrospectively analysed. Read More

Metabolic Signatures of Cystic Fibrosis Identified in Dried Blood Spots For Newborn Screening Without Carrier Identification.

J Proteome Res 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a complex multi-organ disorder that is among the most common fatal genetic diseases benefiting from therapeutic interventions early in life. Newborn screening (NBS) for pre-symptomatic detection of CF currently relies on a two-stage immunoreactive trypsinogen (IRT) and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) mutation panel algorithm that is sensitive, but not specific for identifying affected neonates with a low positive predictive value. For the first time, we report the discovery of a panel of CF-specific metabolites from a single 3. Read More

Department of Physiology, AZCOM, Midwestern University, 19555 N. 59th Avenue, Glendale, AZ 85308, USA.

Genistein is a naturally occurring isoflavone found in soy. Genistein has been shown to increase the open probability of the most common cystic fibrosis (CF) disease-associated mutation, ∆F508-CFTR. Mice homozygous for the ∆F508 mutation are characterized with severe intestinal disease and require constant laxative treatment for survival. Read More

A safe and efficacious preventive strategy in the high-risk surgical neonate: cycled total parenteral nutrition.

Pediatr Surg Int 2018 Nov 28;34(11):1177-1181. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Department of Surgery, Children's Mercy Hospital, 2401 Gillham Road, Kansas City, MO, 64108, USA.

Introduction: Hepatic dysfunction in patients reliant on total parenteral nutrition (TPN) may benefit from cycled TPN. A concern for neonatal hypoglycemia has limited the use of cycled TPN in neonates less than 1 week of age. We sought to determine both the safety and efficacy of cycled TPN in surgical neonates less than 1 week of age. Read More

Elife 2018 07 13;7. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Department of Physiology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.

The severity of intestinal disease associated with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is variable in the patient population and this variability is partially conferred by the influence of modifier genes. Genome-wide association studies have identified an electrogenic amino acid transporter, as a genetic modifier of CF-associated meconium ileus. The purpose of the current work was to determine the biological role of by disrupting its expression in CF mice bearing the major mutation, F508del. Read More

Guanylate cyclase 2C agonism corrects CFTR mutants.

JCI Insight 2017 Oct 5;2(19). Epub 2017 Oct 5.

Division of Pulmonary Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder in which epithelium-generated fluid flow from the lung, intestine, and pancreas is impaired due to mutations disrupting CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) channel function. CF manifestations of the pancreas and lung are present in the vast majority of CF patients, and 15% of CF infants are born with obstructed gut or meconium ileus. However, constipation is a significantly underreported outcome of CF disease, affecting 47% of the CF patients, and management becomes critical in the wake of increasing life span of CF patients.

Neonatal gastrointestinal emergencies are caused by a diverse set of primarily congenital entities that may affect the upper or lower gastrointestinal tracts, and occasionally both. Although a diagnosis can sometimes be made on prenatal imaging, more commonly patients present after birth and require prompt diagnosis to facilitate timely treatment. Imaging plays a central role in the accurate diagnosis of these entities and typically consists of an initial abdominal series followed by either an upper gastrointestinal series or contrast enema.

Effects of Diagnosis by Newborn Screening for Cystic Fibrosis on Weight and Length in the First Year of Life.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Development Network Coordinating Center, Seattle Children's Research Institute, Seattle, Washington3Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington, Seattle.

Importance: Since the implementation of universal newborn screening (NBS) for cystic fibrosis (CF), the timing and magnitude of growth deficiency or its association with correlates of disease among infants with CF who underwent NBS has not been well described.

Objective: To examine incremental weight gain, linear growth, and clinical features in the first year of life among infants with CF who underwent NBS.

Design, Setting, And Participants: The Baby Observational and Nutrition Study (BONUS), a multicenter, longitudinal, observational cohort study, was conducted during regular CF clinic visits in the first 12 months of life at 28 US Cystic Fibrosis Foundation-accredited Care Centers from January 7, 2012, through May 31, 2015.

Modulation of TMEM16A channel activity by the von Willebrand factor type A (VWA) domain of the calcium-activated chloride channel regulator 1 (CLCA1).

J Biol Chem 2017 06 18;292(22):9164-9174. Epub 2017 Apr 18.

From the Center for the Investigation of Membrane Excitability Diseases,

Calcium-activated chloride channels (CaCCs) are key players in transepithelial ion transport and fluid secretion, smooth muscle constriction, neuronal excitability, and cell proliferation. The CaCC regulator 1 (CLCA1) modulates the activity of the CaCC TMEM16A/Anoctamin 1 (ANO1) by directly engaging the channel at the cell surface, but the exact mechanism is unknown. Here we demonstrate that the von Willebrand factor type A (VWA) domain within the cleaved CLCA1 N-terminal fragment is necessary and sufficient for this interaction. Read More

The aim of this study was to explore whether history of meconium ileus (MI) at birth in children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF) adversely affects body composition and lung function in later life. Data of children and adolescents with CF who underwent spirometry and DXA as part of their routine care were analyzed. Associations between MI (explanatory variable) and areal bone mineral density (total body less head-TBLH aBMD), lean tissue mass (LTM), and fat mass (FM) (outcomes) were assessed using general linear models.

Objective: To determine whether cystic fibrosis (CF) is associated with adverse neonatal outcomes in a recent birth cohort in the US.

Study Design: A retrospective matched cohort study of infants born in Washington State from 1996 to 2013 was identified through birth certificate data and linked to statewide hospital discharge data. Infants with CF were identified by hospitalization (through age 5 years) in which a CF-specific International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision code was recorded. Read More

Onset of persistent pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in children with cystic fibrosis with interval censored data.

BMC Med Res Methodol 2016 09 17;16(1):122. Epub 2016 Sep 17.

Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Wisconsin, 1415 Linden Drive, Madison, 53706, WI, USA.

Background: Persistent Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PPA) infection promotes lung function deterioration in children with cystic fibrosis (CF). Although early CF diagnosis through newborn screening (NBS) has been shown to provide nutritional/growth benefit, it is unclear whether NBS lowers the risk of PPA infection and how the effect of NBS vary with age. Modeling the onset age of PPA infection is challenging because 1) the onset age of PPA infection is interval censored in patient registry data; and 2) some risk factors such as NBS may have time-varying effects.
