OBJECTIVE: To compare two polyethylene bags in preventing admission hypothermia in preterm infants born at <34 weeks gestation. STUDY DESIGN: Quasi-randomized unblinded clinical trial conducted at a level III neonatal unit between June 2018 to September 2019. The authors assign infants between 240/7 and 336/7 weeks' gestation to receive NeoHelp™ bag (intervention group) or a usual plastic bag (control group). The primary outcome was admission hypothermia, considering an axillary temperature at admission to the neonatal unit of <36...

OBJECTIVE: To determine reference intervals (RI) for serum immunoglobulin A (IgA) levels in healthy children aged 1 to 11 years residing in the central region of Brazil. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 1,743 healthy children randomly selected from kindergartens and public schools in Cuiabá, MT, Brazil. The IgA RIs were defined using the statistical methods postulated by the guidelines of the United States Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute, the nonparametric bootstrap method, and Horn's robust method after the correction of discrepancies by Tukey's, Dixon's, and Horn's methods, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: The relationship between lipid metabolism and pneumonia in under-five children remains unclear. The aim of the study was to explore the association of several lipids, lipoproteins and apolipoproteins with the risk of childhood pneumonia, and to initially reveal the mechanisms involved. METHODS: There were 1000 children with confirmed severe pneumonia and 1000 healthy controls (18-59 months old) in the study. Serum levels of several lipids, lipoproteins and apolipoproteins were measured...

OBJECTIVES: Primary objectives were to analyze the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea in (1) boys and girls, and (2) severe asthma versus moderate and mild cases. The authors hypothesized that girls and severe asthma would have a higher prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea. METHODS: Cross-sectional evaluation of asthmatic children attending a tertiary Pediatric Pulmonology clinic. The authors performed a history, physical examination, pulmonary function test, and home sleep apnea test...

OBJECTIVE: The incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in pediatric patients are increasing. Currently, the diagnostic method for IBD is inconvenient, expensive, and difficult. S100A12, a type of calcium-binding protein, detected in the feces of patients with IBD has recently been suggested as a promising diagnostic tool. Hence, the authors aimed to evaluate the accuracy of fecal S100A12 in diagnosing IBD in pediatric patients by performing a meta-analysis. METHODS: The authors performed a systematic literature search in five electronic databases for eligible studies up to July 15, 2021...

OBJECTIVE: The Child and Adolescent Behavior Inventory (CABI) is a cost-free 75 question-questionnaire developed by an Italian group to collect information from parents on the behavior of children and adolescents aged 6 to 18 years. It assesses different areas of children's behavior and psychopathology, including internalizing and externalizing symptoms, and can be used to identify children at risk of mental disorders both in clinical and epidemiological settings. In this study, the authors present a Brazilian-Portuguese adaptation of the CABI and its psychometric properties...
