Highlights in Pediatrics

5-HT levels elevated in autism

As reported in European Neuropsychopharmacology, based on a meta-analysis of 22 studies, serotonin (5-HT) levels are significantly elevated in the whole blood of children with autism (OR = 4.6).

Waist-to-height ratio does not predict cardiometabolic risk in children

As reported in Clinical Nutrition, the waist-to-height ratio is inferior to the waist circumference and BMI in predicting body fat percentage and cardiometabolic risk factors in children 3-17 years of age.

Narrow-spectrum antibiotics recommended for CAP in children

As reported in Pediatrics, narrow-spectrum antibiotics yielded similar outcomes in children with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) to broad-spectrum antibiotics. The study was conducted in 4 hospital and involved 492 patients between 2 months and 18 years with a discharge diagnosis of CAP. Other than a 10-hour decrease in length of stay in the narrow-spectrum antibiotic groups, the outcomes were similar between the narrow- and broad-spectrum antibiotic groups.
