RESPONSE OF SEVERELY OBESE CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS TO BEHAVIORAL TREATMENT

In a 3-year observational study, Danielsson et alArticle found that long-term behavioral treatment of obesity was successful for severely obese children but had almost no effect on severely obese adolescents.

RESULTS OF A MULTIDISCIPLINARY TREATMENT PROGRAM IN 3-YEAR-OLD TO 5-YEAR-OLD OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE CHILDREN: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED CLINICAL TRIAL

Bocca et alArticle showed that a multidisciplinary intervention program for overweight and obese children aged 3 to 5 years led to greater decreases in body mass index and waist circumference than a usual-care program.

LONG-TERM FOLLOW-UP OF PATIENTS AFTER CHILDHOOD URINARY TRACT INFECTION

In a follow-up of children with urinary tract infection by Hannula et alArticle, unilateral kidney growth retardation was found in 3% of patients and renal parenchymal defects in 15%, but nearly exclusively among those with grade III to V reflux.

PRENATAL EXPOSURE TO MERCURY AND FISH CONSUMPTION DURING PREGNANCY AND ATTENTION-DEFICIT/HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER–RELATED BEHAVIOR IN CHILDREN

Sagiv et alArticle found that low-level prenatal mercury exposure was associated with a greater risk for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder–related behaviors in children at age 8 years, while fish consumption during pregnancy was protective of these behaviors.

PARENTAL INFLUENCE ON SUBSTANCE USE IN ADOLESCENT SOCIAL NETWORKS

Shakya et alArticle found that if an adolescent had friends whose parents used authoritative parenting, that adolescent was less likely to abuse alcohol, smoke, use marijuana, and binge drink.

SAFETY OF QUADRIVALENT HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS VACCINE ADMINISTERED ROUTINELY TO FEMALES

In a large study assessing the safety of the quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine administered to 189 629 females, Klein et alArticle found that it was safe and only associated with same-day syncope and skin infections.

RECENT VICTIMIZATION EXPOSURE AND SUICIDAL IDEATION IN ADOLESCENTS

Using longitudinal data, Turner et alArticle found that suicidal ideation was significantly more common among adolescents who had experienced any form of victimization including sexual assault and peer victimization. Those with multiple types of victimization were almost 6 times more likely to report suicidal ideation.

PRIORITIZATION OF COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS RESEARCH TOPICS IN HOSPITAL PEDIATRICS

Keren et alArticle used information about prevalence, cost, and variation in resource use to prioritize comparative effectiveness research topics in hospital pediatrics—those that are high cost, are high prevalence, and demonstrate high variation in resource use.

EARLY OCCURRENCE OF OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA IN INFANTS AND CHILDREN WITH CYSTIC FIBROSIS

Spicuzza et alArticle discovered that sleep-disordered breathing may occur in an early stage of life in children with cystic fibrosis and mild lung disease in stable clinical condition.

ASK SUICIDE-SCREENING QUESTIONS (ASQ): A BRIEF INSTRUMENT FOR THE PEDIATRIC EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT
