Goldschmidt et al (page) examined weight-for-height changes needed to normalize weight status in youth who are growing. Relatively small weight changes were necessary for children to achieve nonoverweight status after 1 year.

Duberg et al (page) found that adolescent girls with internalizing problems in an 8-month dance intervention improved their self-rated health more than the control group at all follow-ups.

A cost-effectiveness analysis of screening strategies for identifying children with diabetes mellitus and dysglycemia by Wu et al (page) found that for diabetes, the cost per case was very high because of the low prevalence of disease.

Rautava et al (page) studied whether birth and care in level III hospitals compared with lower-level hospitals were associated with 5-year morbidity in very preterm children. There was an increased risk for retinopathy and asthma among infants transferred from level III to lower-level hospitals.

Profit et al (page) analyzed data for 5445 very low-birth-weight infants between 2004 and 2007 at 2 California neonatal intensive care units. The ability of individual quality measures to explain overall quality of neonatal intensive care was modest.

In a study in Nord-Trøndelag County, Norway, Hoftun et al (page) found that maternal chronic pain was associated with 50% higher odds of chronic nonspecific pain and chronic multisite pain in adolescents and young adults.

Finkelhor et al (page) evaluated measures included in the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study scale to improve the scale's predictive ability of long-term health outcomes. The association was improved by removing some of the original scale items and adding others such as peer rejection.

Joshi et al (page) review treatment approaches for children with antiseizure medication–resistant epilepsy. With a resurgence in popularity and expansion of indications, dietary treatments can lead to freedom from seizures or a significantly reduced seizure burden for many patients.
