Growth charts of Egyptian children with Down syndrome [0-36 months]
AbstractA study established growth and growth velocity curves for weight, length and head circumference in 350 Egyptian Down syndrome children [188 males and 162 females] from 0-36 months. Down syndrome children had poorer growth variables than normal healthy children through the first 3 years of life. Down syndrome children with associated congenital heart disease [90 cases] had significantly lower weight, especially in girls, compared with those without heart disease. In the first 2 years, growth velocity for weight and head circumference were higher in Down syndrome females than males, while growth velocity for length was higher in males. Down syndrome boys had slightly higher velocity of length than normal children in the first 3 years of life

Malik, M.; Elkholy, A.A.; Khan, W.; Hassounah, S.; Abubakar, A.; Minh, N. Tran; Mala, P. (2016-07)A literature review of publically available information was undertaken to summarize current understanding and gaps in knowledge about Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus [MERS-CoV], including its origin, transmission, effective control measures and management. Major databases were searched and relevant published papers and reports during 2012-2015 were reviewed. Of the 2520 publications initially retrieved, 164 were deemed relevant. The collected results suggest that much remains to be discovered about MERS-CoV. Improved surveillance, ...
