Long-term results of GH therapy in GH-deficient children treated before 1 year of age. (1/225)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the long-term effects of GH therapy in early diagnosed GH-deficient patients treated before 1 year of age. STUDY DESIGN: We studied all 59 patients (33 males) recorded by Association France-Hypophyse and treated with GH (0.50+/-0.15 IU/kg (S.D.) per week) before 1 year of age. Clinical presentation and growth parameters under GH treatment were analyzed. RESULTS: Neonatal manifestations of hypopituitarism were frequent: hypoglycemia (n=50), jaundice (n=25) and micropenis (n=17/33). Although birth length was moderately reduced (-0.9+/-1.4), growth retardation at diagnosis (5.8+/-3.8 months) was severe (-3.5+/-1.9 standard deviation scores (SDS)). Fifty patients (85%) had thyrotropin and/or corticotropin deficiency. After a mean duration of GH therapy of 8.0+/-3.6 years, change in height SDS was +3.11+/-2.06 S.D., exceeding 4 SDS in 19 patients. Only 9 patients (15%) did not reach a height of -2 S.D. for chronological age and 20 patients (34%) exceeded their target height. Pretreatment height SDS was independently associated with total catch-up growth. CONCLUSION: Conventional doses of GH allow normalization of height in patients with early GH deficiency and treatment.  (+info)

Growth hormone treatment in young children with Down's syndrome: effects on growth and psychomotor development. (2/225)

BACKGROUND: Learning disability and short stature are cardinal signs of Down's syndrome. Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), regulated by growth hormone (GH) from about 6 months of age, may be involved in brain development. AIMS: To study long term effects of GH on linear growth and psychomotor development in young children with Down's syndrome. Study design-Fifteen children with Down's syndrome were treated with GH for three years from the age of 6 to 9 months (mean, 7.4). Linear growth, psychomotor development, skeletal maturation, serum concentrations of IGF-I and its binding proteins (BPs), and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of IGF-II were studied. RESULTS: The mean height of the study group increased from -1.8 to -0.8 SDS (Swedish standard) during treatment, whereas that of a Down's syndrome control group fell from -1.7 to -2.2 SDS. Growth velocity declined after treatment stopped. Head growth did not accelerate during treatment. No significant difference in mental or gross motor development was found. The low concentrations of serum IGF-I and IGFBP-3 became normal during GH treatment. CONCLUSIONS: GH treatment results in normal growth velocity in Down's syndrome but does not affect head circumference or mental or gross motor development. Growth velocity declines after treatment stops.  (+info)

Growth in Sotos syndrome. (3/225)

Although there are several reports on infant and childhood growth in patients with Sotos syndrome, there is little information on the final height achieved and puberty. Growth data on 40 patients (20 female and 20 male) aged 2-31 years were collected. These showed that patients with Sotos syndrome are excessively tall at birth, during infancy, and during childhood. Disproportionately long limbs constitute much of the increase in stature. However, the combination of advanced bone age and early onset of menarche led to a mean (SD) final height of 172.9 (5.7) cm in women. This is within the normal range for the population. Most of the men also attained a final height (mean, 184.3 cm; SD, 6.0) within the normal range, although exceptions were more likely in men than in women. Therefore, these results show that most patients with Sotos syndrome do not require intervention to limit their adult height.  (+info)

Estrogen supplementation for bone dematuration in young epileptic man treated with anticonvulsant therapy; a case report. (4/225)

We encountered a young man treated with anticonvulsant therapy who had greatly reduced bone mineral density. An 18-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for shoulder pain and further evaluation of decreased bone mineral density. He had been treated with anticonvulsants, including phenytoin, phenobarbital, valproic acid and zonisamide for seizures. Although testosterone was found within the normal range for adult men, the serum estrogen concentration was below the detection limit (< 10 pg/ml) and his wrist epiphyses were not yet closed. After 10 months of treatment with the conjugated estrogen, both his height and weight showed improvement, while his bone mineral density and bone age were increased. These findings suggested that estrogen therapy had a significant effect on his skeletal growth and bone maturation in man. This is the first report showing the beneficial effect of estrogen supplementation in an epileptic man receiving treatment with anticonvulsants.  (+info)

Bone age assessment: a large scale comparison of the Greulich and Pyle, and Tanner and Whitehouse (TW2) methods. (5/225)

PURPOSE: Comparison of bone age assessed using either the "atlas matching" method of Greulich and Pyle or the "point scoring system" of Tanner and Whitehouse (TW2). MATERIALS AND METHODS: 362 consecutive "bone age" radiographs of the left hand and distal radius performed in a large provincial teaching hospital. Data were analysed using the "method comparison" statistical technique. Ten per cent of the radiographs were re-analysed to assess intra-observer variation. RESULTS: The 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two methods was 2.28 to -1.52 years. Intra-observer variation was greater for the Greulich and Pyle method than for the TW2 method (95% confidence limit, -2.46 to 2.18 v -1.41 to 1.43). CONCLUSION: The two methods of bone age assessment as used in clinical practice do not give equivalent estimates of bone age and we suggest that one method only (preferably the TW2) should be used when performing serial measurements on an individual patient.  (+info)

Skeletal maturity in Pakistani children. (6/225)

Skeletal maturity in 750 normal Pakistani children (400 males, 350 females) aged 1-18 y was determined by the Greulich-Pyle atlas system. Male children during first year and female children during first 2 y of life matured in conformity with Greulich-Pyle standards. After that period mean bone ages were lower than the American standards up to 15 y in males and 13 y in females (at or around puberty), which may be due to malnutrition, ill health or other environmental factors. After puberty bone ages were higher than the American standards indicating earlier maturity in Pakistani than Western children. Hence for the proper evaluation of skeletal age in a given region, a longitudinal study on individuals in that region to establish normal standards is necessary.  (+info)

The potential of digital dental radiography in recording the adductor sesamoid and the MP3 stages. (7/225)

The current study was undertaken to evaluate the reliability of using a recent advance in clinical radiographic technique, digital dental radiography, in recording two growth indicators: the adductor sesamoid and MP3 stages. With an exposure time five times less than that used in the conventional approach, this method shows greatest flexibility in providing a high quality digitized radiographic images of the two growth indicators under investigation.

Determination of age at death using combined morphology and histology of the femur. (8/225)

Bone is characterised by age-related morphological and histological changes. We have previously established an automated method of recording bone morphometry and histology from entire transverse sections of cortical bone. Our aim was to determine whether data acquired using this automated system were useful in the prediction of age. Ninety-six specimens of human femoral middiaphysis were studied from subjects aged 21-92 y. Equations predicting specimen age were constructed using macroscopic data (total subperiosteal area (TSPA), periosteal perimeter (PP), endosteal perimeter (EP), cortical bone area (CA) and moments of area) and microscopic data (the number, size and diversity of pores and intracortical porosity) together with sex, height and weight. Both TSPA and PP were independent predictors of age but the number of pores was not a significant predictor of age in any equation. The age predicted by these equations was inaccurate by more than 8 y in over half the subjects. We conclude that we could not predict age at a clinically acceptable level using data from our automated system. This most likely reflects an insensitivity to regional age-related changes in bone histology because we recorded data from each entire cortex. Automated bone measurement according to cortical region might be more useful in the prediction of age. The inclusion of TSPA together with PP as independent predictors of age raises the possibility that a future measure of periosteal shape at the femoral diaphysis could also be helpful in the prediction of age. The accuracy reached with the relatively simple methods described here is sufficient to encourage the development of image-analysis systems for the automatic detection of more complex features.  (+info)

Whelton, H.J.; Power, S.B., 1993: The use of badger bacula as a method of age determination in a badger population infected with tuberculosis
This study presents unique longitudinal data on skeletal maturation in adolescents from a middle-income country. Moreover, the study provides mean growth curves for RUS bone scores which permit the analysis of sex and ethnic differences in patterns of skeletal maturation. The results show that black boys mature later than white boys whereas black as well as white girls mature at the same age. A longitudinal analysis clarifies how this pattern emerges; skeletal maturation in black girls starts to accelerate later than in white girls, but develops faster, whereas in black boys, skeletal maturation starts to accelerate later and then develops at a similar rate.. The differing patterns of skeletal maturity in the two ethnic groups by sex are intriguing. In all populations, girls are more skeletally mature than boys from birth onwards and reach adult bone maturity, on average, 2 years earlier than boys (1.9 years here).2 Similarly, lower socioeconomic status is generally associated with delayed bone ...

Bone age is the degree of maturation of a childs bones. As a person grows from fetal life through childhood, puberty, and finishes growth as a young adult, the bones of the skeleton change in size and shape. These changes can be seen by x-ray. The "bone age" of a child is the average age at which children reach this stage of bone maturation. A childs current height and bone age can be used to predict adult height. For most people, their bone age is the same as their biological age but for some individuals, their bone age is a couple of years older or younger. Those with advanced bone ages typically hit a growth spurt early on but stop growing sooner, while those with delayed bone ages hit their growth spurt later than normal. Children who are below average height do not necessarily have a delayed bone age; in fact their bone age could actually be advanced which if left untreated, will stunt their growth. At birth, only the metaphyses of the "long bones" are present. The long bones are those ...

Bone age assessment, a crucial part of the diagnosis and management of pediatric growth disorders as well as the timing of certain pediatric orthopedic procedures, has for decades depended on the meticulous examination of plain radiographs.
Background: Both the Tanner-Whitehouse-III RUS score, which is based on the radiographic appearance of the epiphyses of the distal part of the radius, the distal part of the ulna, and small bones of the hand, and the digital skeletal age skeletal maturity scoring system, which is based on just the metacarpals and phalanges, correlate highly with the curve acceleration phase in girls with idiopathic scoliosis. However, these systems require an atlas and access to the scoring system, making their use impractical in a busy clinical setting. We sought to develop a simplified system that would correlate highly with scoliosis behavior but that would also be rapid and reliable for clinical practice. Methods: A simplified staging system involving the use of the Tanner-Whitehouse-III descriptors was developed. It was tested for intraobserver and interobserver reliability by six individuals on thirty skeletal age radiographs. The system was compared with the timing of the curve acceleration phase in a ...
Additional information:. total gas age - this row provides the mean age of all of the individual analyses (heating steps). Total gas ages and errors calculated by weighting individual steps by the fraction of 39Ar released. This age/error is analogous to a conventional K/Ar age determination. Other information in this row include the number of steps included in the weighted mean (n=10), the total moles of 39ArK contained within the sample and the mean K/Ca ratio for the sample. plateau - this row provides the mean age of those individual analyses specified by the geochronologist. Plateau weighted mean ages are calculated by weighting each age analysis by the inverse of the variance. Weighted mean error calculated using the method of (Taylor, 1982). Plateau must comprise at least two contiguous steps. Beyond this requirement, different 40Ar/39Ar laboratories have different criteria for defining plateau segments. Other information in this row include the MSWD (calculated for n-1 degrees of freedom ...
By request from Bane NORs maintenance department, registration of vegetation was done on selected stations along four railway lanes during the summer of 2016. These four lanes were chosen because they are situated in different climate zones and have stations with plantings of varying size and complexity. The registrations included species identification, vegetation dimensioning, age determination, ground location and ground cover materials, weed growth, bush coverage, pests and damage, vitality, and need for maintenance measures. On the 23 stations, a total of 295 trees and area of 2491 m2 covered by shrub were registered. Of the 295 trees there were 31 tree species, 29 species and 2 cultivars. Of the 2491 m2 of shrub field there were 40 shrubs, 26 species and 14 cultivars. The use of vegetation was relatively little varied, and two birch species accounted for almost 30% of all tree species. There was greater variation in the use of bushes, but the largest variation was distributed on a few of ...
My field and laboratory research is focused on paleobiological and biostratigraphic questions concerning the evolution of Mesozoic and Cenozoic terrestrial biotas. Currently I am studying the systematic interrelationships of Mesozoic mammals, making use of characters of both skeletal morphology and enamel microstructure. A stratigraphically controlled series of early Paleocene (Puercan) local faunas calibrated through 40Ar/39Ar age determinations provides the basis for analyses of the patterns and tempos of terrestrial faunal change during the first million years after the extinctions used to mark the end of the Cretaceous.. Graduate student research projects include: Investigation of the phylogenetic interrelationships, locomotor evolution, and turnover rates of Eocene artiodactyls; analysis of phylogenetic interrelationships and biogeographic distributions of Late Cretaceous and Early Cenozoic members of the Multituberculata; and study of the origins and evolutionary diversification of ...
When electrons are released from traps the intensity of emitted luminescence follows linearly the amount of released electrons and can be used to find out the total amount of trapped electrons. From the amount of trapped electrons we can find out the total dose of radioactive radiation that has affected the crystals. This total dose can be used to the age determination when we measure the dose rate of radiation that has given that dose. Age (the time from the latest emptying of traps) can be found out by dividing the total dose with dose rate.. In dating the TL-method can be used to determine the age from samples that have been heated during their manufacturing process or when used (for example stones from fireplaces, bricks and ceramics). OSL-method can be used for example when dating sand formations. In both methods the main idea is that the traps are emptied at the specific time we are searching for. The traps in bricks and ceramic items are emptied during their manufacturing while they are ...
85% of Sr reacting with N2O and >70% Sr reacting with SF6; Rb does not react with either gas. As a result, the sensitivity for Sr reaction products is ∼10 times higher with N2O and ∼8 times higher with SF6 compared to O2. With these more reactive gases, the error of mica isochron ages, calibrated against a newly developed nano-particulate pressed powder tablet of mica-Mg, is ∼1% using a 50 μm laser spot. Our tests show that both N2O and SF6 form interfering reaction products, e.g., SrOH (N2O), SiF3 and TiF3 (SF6) that are difficult to handle using single mass spectrometer instruments, but which can be overcome using MS/MS. Using SF6 combined with H2, it is possible to measure 40Ca+ as 40Ca19F+, free from interference of 40Ar+ and 40K+. This facilitates the dating of micas by the K-Ca isotopic system; we present the first in situ K-Ca age determination. ...
Bottom line: if you are one of those who equates "starting" with "riding", then I guess you better not start your horse until hes four. That would be the old, traditional, worldwide view: introduce the horse to equipment (all kinds of equipment and situations) when hes two, crawl on and off of him at three, saddle him to begin riding him and teaching him to guide at four, start teaching him maneuvers or the basics of whatever job hes going to do - cavalletti or stops or something beyond trailing cattle - at five, and hes on the payroll at six. The old Spanish way of bitting reflected this also, because the horses teeth arent mature (the tushes havent come in, nor all of the permanent cheek teeth either) until hes six.= This is what Id do if it were my own horse. Im at liberty to do that because Im not on anybody elses schedule except my horses own schedule. Im not a participant in futurities or planning to be. Are you? If you are, well, thats your business.

Aim: To analyze the height gain in children with precocious puberty who have been treated with GnRH-A for at least three years. Method and Materials: 18 patients (16 girls and 2 boys) with isosexual complete precocious puberty were included in the current study. Diagnosis was documented by LHRH stimulation test plus sex steroid assays. The mean age at onset of treatment was 6 years (SD = 2.41) and skeletal maturation was advanced (mean = 8.67, SD = 2.77 years). Hormonal profiles and skeletal maturation were monitored throughout the treatment course. Results: The mean height SDS for age during the first 3 years of treatment followed the prepubertal reference values, but the height SDS based on skeletal maturation at the onset of treatment improved by 0.9 SDS during the three years of treatment (p,0.01). In a multiple regression analysis, height SDS and the advancement of skeletal maturation at the onset of treatment explained 41% of the growth response in the first 3 years. Neither the age at ...
Most commonly, premature thelarche is diagnosed in a female infant or a girl up to three years of age. Occasionally, a girl from three to six years of age will show an enlargement of one or both breasts. However, after age six, the beginning of breast development is actually the beginning of puberty; however, it is a very slow form of development. In addition, girls with early breast development usually do not have early periods.. Typically, the girl has no other signs of puberty, and is growing at a normal, pre-pubertal growth rate, i.e., about two inches a year. Laboratory studies are not usually helpful, since they show low (pre-pubertal) concentrations of estrogen or other hormones that stimulate pubertal development. An x-ray of the hand shows a picture that is normal for the girls age, and not that of an older girl.. top. ...
The age determination was based on counting the alternating light and dark bands present in the vertebrae, which calcify with age. Such bands have been shown to represent seasonal changes in modern sharks; this was tested in the fossil by examining difference in the isotopic composition of the dark and light bands, which reflects seasonal temperature changes. A modern great white shark of similar age likely would have been larger, suggesting that this fossil species grew at a slower rate. ...
M orphological changes of the articular surfaces of the innominate provides an excellent postcranial age indicators for adult remains. Variation in the face of the pubic symphysis, the anterior-most point of articulation between the two innominates in the pelvic girdle, is a common region analyzed for age determination. Todd (1920) outlined a 10-stage method for assessing this surface, based on a large sample of male innominates. Changes in the symphyseal surface over time proceed in a predictable pattern from a heavily contoured face, to one delimited by a rim in the mid 30s, to a surface marked by increasing porosity after 40 years. Analysis by Meindl and coworkers (1985) has shown the Todd method to be the most accurate of the pubic symphyseal methods available. It should be noted however, that a tendency to over-age individuals has been found after age 40 by some (BROOKS, 1955), while others claim under-aging of the 45+ year old individuals is problematic (Aiello and Molleson, 1993 ...

In order to establish the unidentified genetic cause of IGHD, WES was performed. Briefly, we aligned sequence reads to the 1000 Genomes Phase 1 reference mapped to GRCh37 using BWA v0.5.9 (10) and removed duplicate read pairs using PICARD v1.74. We performed realignment, recalibration and variant calling using GATK v3.3 (11) and applied GATK VQSR filter (12) to remove low-quality variants. Variant annotation was retrieved by using ANNOVAR (13) revealing a homozygous c.431C,T, p.Leu144His mutation in GHRHR. This mutation is indeed detected in the homozygous state by Sanger sequencing, but it was originally overlooked by the first Sanger sequencing, patient 5 of reference (7). This alteration was not seen when the sequencing data were initially read but after the WES it could be found in the original Sanger sequencing. Here we report the correct GHRHR findings for this patient. This mutation has been previously described in unrelated patients with IGHD from Sergipe/Brazil, Pakistan, Spain and the ...
A 4-year-old Caucasian girl presents to her pediatrician because of early development of breast buds, pubic hair, and body odor. On exam, the girl is noted to have Tanner stage 3 breast buds and pubic hair. She is also noted to have clitoromegaly (Figure 200-1). The pediatrician refers the girl to a pediatric endocrinologist, who orders a bone age, estradiol levels, and an MRI of the brain. The girl is found to have an advanced bone age of 7 years, and levels of estradiol consistent with her stage of sexual development. An MRI of the brain is normal. She is diagnosed with idiopathic central precocious puberty. The options for management are discussed with the family. ...

Golf And Age:. The vast majority of golfers experience a significant loss in club head speed and distance as they age. Its a complaint I have heard from pretty much every golfer I have trained who is into their 50s, and certainly 60s. Golf score, and either directly or indirectly, level of enjoyment from the game starts to decline as this speed reduction occurs. Lets make one point very clear. Its not your chronological age that is primarily responsible for the decline in distance, it is your drop in strength and speed/power. There is a huge difference, because chronological age cannot be changed, but strength, power and speed levels most certainly can….at any age.. Why Does Speed Drop Off With Age?. By understanding the mechanisms that underlie this drop off in power it becomes much easier to try and apply appropriate training interventions.. 1 Decrease In Muscle Activity / Neural Drive:.

Does having early puberty and facial hair means you stop growing earlier - Does having early puberty and facial hair means you stop growing earlier? Not necessarily. Puberty is a complex process involving multiple hormones and structural changes. In males the process may span from 2 to 5 years with a kids eventual height dependent more on how the bones are affected than other structures. As long as the bones have open growth plates there is room for a kid to grow taller. A bone age assessment (xray) can help gage potential for more growth. Discuss this with doc.
The growth of 26 short normal prepubertal children (mean age 8.4, height velocity standard deviation score for chronological age between +0.4 and -0.8) was studied for two years. Sixteen children were treated with somatrem (methionyl growth hormone) during the second year, and the remaining 10 children served as controls. During one year of treatment the height velocity standard deviation score for chronological age increased from the pretreatment mean of -0.44 (SD 0.33) to +2.20 (1.03). These values represented a change in height velocity from a pretreatment mean of 5.3 cm/year (range 4.6-6.9) to 7.4 cm/year (range 5.7-9.9). In the control group the height velocity standard deviation score was unchanged. Bone age advanced by 0.75 (0.33) years in the treated group compared with 0.70 (0.18) years in the control group. There was a significant increase in the height standard deviation score for bone age (0.63 (0.55] in the treated group. Multiple regression analysis of predictive factors ...

Fetal intra-uterine growth charts are generally based on last menstrual period (LMP) data. Such charts may not really be applicable to infants whose gestational age is ultrasonically determined in early pregnancy. 1369 consecutive singleton pregnancies were studied. All fetuses had their gestational age estimated both by ultrasonic measurement of fetal crown-rump length and from registered last menstrual period data. All infants were weighed at birth as a part of the routine care. The age determination according to the two methods differed in 664 out of 1369 cases and in 516 of these 664 cases the age according to LMP was higher than according to CRL - a highly significant difference (p , 0.001). Mean values for birth weight were found to be larger when correlated to age in terms of CRL determinations than when related to age as calculated from LMP data. Birth weight also showed a significant increase between 40 and 42 weeks when age was determined ultrasonically. This was not the case when age ...
This study was carried out in the eastern Transvaal Lowveld in an area 2 with a giraffe population density of 2,6 per km . Lions are the only predators and it was estimated that 48% of the calves die in their first year. The sex ratio departs significantly from unity in favour of females. Plant fragments in the rumen were identified. Giraffe subsist on the leaves of trees and shrubs, though fruit, flowers, twigs and grass were also utilised. Marked seasonal changes in the plant species selected were determined by availability and different habitats were utilised accordingly. Chemical analysis of rumen content showed correlations of nutritional value with species eaten and seasonal phenological changes of the vegetation. Tooth eruption, wear and incremental layers in the cementum were found to be suitable criteria for age determination. Total body mass was measured and carcasses dressed out at 61,9% for males and 56,6% for females. Lower mass and lower proportion of fat was found in the dry ...
First online: 10 May 2016. LINK. "The identification of alkali-rich components in extraterrestrial materials along with their separation from other constituents is indispensable for subsequent cosmochemical and isotopic studies. This paper presents a simple pre-screening method for such materials by autoradiography using imaging plates (IPs), which is applicable to identification of mm-sized samples containing ca. 30 µg of potassium in the Yamato-74442 chondrite. The detection limit of IPs was ~1 mBq of 40K under 49 days exposure. The method provides an opportunity to screen meteorite materials non-destructively and to inexpensively check potassium-rich areas and are suitable for the 40K-40Ca and 40K-40Ar (39Ar-40Ar) age determinations.". ...
Evidence has long supported insulin-like growth factor-2 (IGF-2) as an important fetal growth factor. Begemann and co-workers from Germany and the Netherlands report four patients from a multigenerational family with the combination of severe intrauterine and postnatal growth retardation, relative macrocephaly, and Russell-Silver syndrome-like features, found to be caused by a paternally inherited IGF2 nonsense mutation.1 Neurodevelopment ranged from normal to modest impairment. Skeletal maturation typically was delayed by a few years compared to chronological age. Endocrine evaluation showed normal to elevated serum growth hormone (GH) and IGF-1 levels, while serum IGF-2 levels were low for age (246-380 ng/mL). Adult height in three patients ranged from 148.0 to 170.0 cm (-4.0 to -1.6 standard deviation [SD]). GH treatment resulted in modest improvement in height standard deviation score (SDS), with one patient reaching 170 cm.. Adding another piece to the idiopathic short stature puzzle, ...
SUMMARY. The development of the frontal sinus in relation to somatic and skeletal maturity was analysed in 26 male subjects aged 9-22 years by means of longitudinal data obtained from lateral head films, handwrist radiographs and body height growth curves. These were grouped together and analysed in a cross-sectional manner. The results revealed that the final size of the frontal sinus varied considerably. Analogous to body height growth at puberty, the enlargement of the frontal sinus exhibited a similar pattern with a well-defined peak, which on average occurred 1.4 years after the body height peak. In comparison with skeletal maturity, 65 per cent of the subjects reached the sinus peak during the hand radiographic stages MP3-G or MP3-H, while the body height peak concided with an earlier maturity stage (MP3-FG). ...
A couple of differences seen in the growth patterns of normal children include these common conditions, which are not growth disorders:. Constitutional growth delay: This condition describes children who are small for their ages but who are growing at a normal rate. They usually have a delayed "bone age," which means that their skeletal maturation is younger than their age in years. (Bone age is measured by taking an X-ray of the hand and wrist and comparing it with standard X-ray findings seen in kids the same age.). These children dont have any signs or symptoms of diseases that affect growth. They tend to reach puberty later than their peers do, with delay in the onset of sexual development and the pubertal growth spurt. But because they continue to grow until an older age, they tend to catch up to their peers when they reach adult height. One or both parents or other close relatives often had a similar "late-bloomer" growth pattern.. Familial (or genetic) short stature: This is a condition ...
The signal that launches the sequence of pubertal changes is gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH). GnRH is produced by the hypothalamus (see Figure 3 and 4), that part of the brain that sits directly above the pituitary gland and directs its activity. More specifically, the pubertal process begins when GnRH is released in hourly pulses from a small group of about 1,000 specialized cells within the hypothalamus. These cells are called GnRH-secreting neurons (Hughes and Gore, 2007). In all mammals, GnRH is both necessary and sufficient to induce puberty (Ebling, 2005). That is, the administration of GnRH can, all by itself, trigger the events of puberty. Puberty will not occur in its absence. Released from the hypothalamus in intermittent bursts, GnRH is shuttled, via a portal blood system, to the pituitary gland. In response to these pulsating GnRH signals, the pituitary releases its two other hormones-follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH)-which then travel through the ...

Trichorhinophalangeal Syndrome (TRPS) is an extremely rare inherited multisystem disorder. This is an autosomal dominant malformation syndrome, which is characterized by craniofacial and skeletal abnormalities. The main features of all three subtypes, TRPS I, II and III are caused by mutation in or deletions of the TRPS1 gene on human chromosome 8.. Pathognomonic features of all three subtypes are sparse scalp hair, a bulbous tip of the nose, and cone-shaped epiphyses (CSEs) of the phalanges with general delay of bone maturation in childhood. Almost all affected individuals have a more or less short final height.. The diagnosis can often be made by means of the typical facial appearance, but the clinical examination should always include a hand radiograph to prove the delayed bone maturation and the presence of CSEs of the phalanges in children or the resulting indentation visible in the mature bones in adults. Molecular confirmation is possible in more than 85% of cases with TRPS types I or III ...
Growth update - October 2008... The vast majority of VACTERL patients are small stature. We met with an endocrinologist recently to make sure Braydons growth was on track for him, or if he was missing growth hormones/potential. The good news is the doc believes his hormone levels are normal (took blood to make sure) and that his bone age is younger than he really is. She predicted he is about 2 years behind in bone age. They also took a hand xray to determine a more accurate bone age. I hope to get results of these tests soon ...

Anyway, just knowing that alone and all by itself we can bet our bank account that the failure rate after bracing success is non-zero. The question is how far from zero is it? Dropping out half the kids who wore the brace needlessly (some of whom do progress after the brace treatment), few/some/most of the bracing successes will eventually be classified as failures. It is possible that between the kids who wear and brace and progress later after skeletal maturity, and the kids who dont wear a brace and progress later after skeletal maturity, it would be very informative to eventually know what percentage of kids in the bracing range are going to need surgery no matter what they do or dont do. Thats what kids and parents need to know ...
The Risser sign is a system used to assess and grade skeletal maturity based on the level of ossification and fusion of the iliac crest apophyses.
The emergence of disease-causing bacteria which are resistant to known antibiotics is one of the most important current global health challenges. Drug-resistant superbugs kill thousands of people every year. This is a growing problem, because new antibiotics are not being discovered fast enough to keep up with the rate of evolution of resistance. Using a simple theoretical model of a bacterial population which expands to colonize a new territory, Philip Greulich, Bartlomiej Waclaw and Rosalind Allen of the Universiy of Edinburgh show that a non-uniform concentration of antibiotic can greatly speed up the evolution of resistance, compared to the case where the drug is evenly distributed. Non-uniform drug distributions are expected to be very common: for example, drugs in our body accumulate to different levels in different organs. Importantly, the speedup in evolution of resistance that is predicted by the model depends on the sequence of genetic mutations by which the bacteria become drug resistant.

A common variant of the usual growth pattern occurs when a child is shorter than average for most of his or her life, then is late entering puberty. This condition is called constitutional growth delay with delayed adolescence or delayed maturation. More boys than girls seek medical attention for this condition, although it is not known whether it is really more common in boys. These children generally are the shortest among their age-mates. A 10-year-old child with this condition may be about the size of a 7-year-old; their bone age and growth potential will also be more like that of a 7-yearold. Typical children with constitutional growth delay have been behind their age-mates in height since very early in childhood, but have continued to grow at a slow normal rate. They will enter puberty 2, 3 or even 4 years later than other children their age, but will have a normal growth spurt and end up about as tall as their parents.

We tend to blame a lot of things on our deteriorating health. We have our faulty genetics, our chronological age, and other mystery factors. However, there are other more probable reasons why our health is deteriorating, and it is time to reverse the trend.. ...
Have you ever wondered, what is your physiological age? Is it more or less than your chronological age? Physiological age determines a persons health condition. Are we able to determine physiological age? You would think the answer is NO. but it can be done by determining telomeres length.
0006]Referring to FIG. 1A to FIG. 1c, FIG. 1A illustrates a lateral cephalogram 10 and a posteroanterior cephalogram 12; FIG. 1B illustrates a tracing 20 of the lateral cephalogram 10, and a tracing 22 of the posteroanterior cephalogram 12; and FIG. 1c illustrates the tracing 20 of the lateral cephalogram 10 with landmarks shown thereon. When at least one cephalograms (such as the lateral cephalogram 10 and the posteroanterior cephalogram 12) are in use, the anatomical features and landmarks of the cephalograms have to be drawn on tracing papers, thereby obtaining tracings (such as the tracing 20 and the tracing 22). The so-called "landmarks" stand for a set of feature points defined from anatomical viewpoints for use in marking an anatomical structure, and can be used for analyzing the geometrical features of the anatomical structure, such as landmarks S, Po, Na, PNS, UIA, ANS, A, MI, LIE, UIE, LIA, B, Pog, Gn, Me, etc. as shown in FIG. 1c. Those landmarks are well known to those who are ...
MAYET, Z; LUKHELE, M and MOHAMMED, N. Risser sign: trends in a South African population. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.4, pp.20-25. ISSN 2309-8309.. INTRODUCTION: In scoliosis management the five stages of the Risser sign on the iliac crest have been widely used as a tool to assess skeletal age and remaining spinal growth. However, as with other markers of skeletal age, it is under the influence of genetic and environmental factors. Proof of this was given by Risser, who observed that children in warmer climates developed earlier. Numerous other authors have also shown differences for other measures of maturity between different race groups. OBJECTIVE: This study was aimed at determining the trends of Iliac crest apophyseal ossification as represented by the Risser sign in the South African population and how it compares with that published by Scoles et al in their population group. METHOD: Radiographs of patients between the ages of 8 to 20 years undergoing abdominal X-rays for ...
Gonadotropin-dependent. This is also known as central precocious puberty. This is the most common type of precocious puberty. Most girls and half of boys with precocious puberty have this type. The puberty is started by early secretion of hormones called gonadotropins. Gonadotropins include luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulation hormone (FSH). In girls, precocious puberty may be caused by the early maturity of the hypothalamus, pituitary glands, and ovaries. But in most cases, no cause can be found ...

ABSTRACT: Many methods of age determination have been used to date. However, most of them require laboratory procedures which are, in general, not available for wildlife managers in the field. In this paper we attempt to standardize the age categories for six mammal species through the analysis of dental wear, dental eruption and body mass. We analyzed 632 skulls, including Mazama nemorivaga (brown brocket deer), Mazama americana (red brocket deer), Tayassu pecari (white-lipped peccary), Pecari tajacu (collared peccary), Cuniculus paca (paca) and Dasyprocta leporina (agouti). Using biological and morphological criteria we define four age categories: young, sub adult, adult and senescent adult. Scores and variables of molar cusp wear and eruption were defined for each age category within each species. We found significant differences in mean weights among age categories for D. leporina (F = 81.1; df = 3; p < 0.05), C. paca (F = 39.0; df = 3; p < 0.05), P. tajacu (F = 24.6; df = 3; p < 0.05) and ...

Central precocious puberty (CPP) is caused by premature activation of the hypothalamic-gonadal axis, and must be treated adequately. In particular, CPP that occurs at a relatively young age or in boys is likely to be caused by an organic lesion. Hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) is the most common organic cause of CPP. The present case report describes an 11-month-old female infant who presented with vaginal bleeding and rapidly progressive secondary sex characteristics from the age of 6 months. She was diagnosed with CPP following the detection of HH via magnetic resonance imaging. The infant girl was successfully treated with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist. After 6 months, her breast had regressed and clinical and radiological follow-up demonstrated stable findings with no evidence of tumor growth or secondary sexual characteristics until the fourth year after the initiation of treatment. This patient is the one of the youngest infants presenting with CPP and HH in Korea; treatment was successful

The validity, efficacy and contribution of cephalometry in orthodontic treatment planning remain questionable [2]. In 2002, 90% of orthodontists in the USA routinely performed cephalometric radiographs [3]. This systematic review was performed to assess the validity and reliability of 2D lateral cephalometry used for orthodontic treatment planning as well as the errors that can occur on 2D tracing. Despite the abundant amount of articles found on lateral cephalometry (n = 968), it is surprising that the present systematic review could only identify very few studies (n = 16, 1.6%) on its validity and reliability. This finding underlines the need for the present study and is an important cross point, considering the fact that we are flooding into 3D cephalometric studies nowadays. Apart from our findings, 2D cephalometry has other specific limitations, such as orthognatic surgery, airway and growth assessment and skeletal maturation. In order to be included in this systematic review, publications ...
