Azithromycin in Early Infancy and Pyloric Stenosis

Matthew  et al, Pedi­atrics, Feb­ru­ary, 2015 BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Use of oral ery­thromycin in infants is asso­ci­at­ed with infan­tile hyper­trophic pyloric steno­sis (IHPS). The risk with azithromycin remains unknown. We eval­u­at­ed the asso­ci­a­tion between expo­sure to oral azithromycin and ery­thromycin and sub­se­quent devel­op­ment of IHPS. METHODS: A ret­ro­spec­tive cohort study of chil­dren…

Physical activity programs for promoting bone mineralization and growth in preterm infants Updated

Back­ground:  Lack of phys­i­cal stim­u­la­tion may con­tribute to meta­bol­ic bone dis­ease of preterm infants, result­ing in poor bone min­er­al­iza­tion and growth. Phys­i­cal activ­i­ty pro­grams com­bined with ade­quate nutri­tion might help to pro­mote bone min­er­al­iza­tion and growth. Authors’ con­clu­sions:  Some evi­dence sug­gests that phys­i­cal activ­i­ty pro­grams might pro­mote short-term weight gain…
