Current conception of the link of obesity and intestinal microbiota

Korniyenko Y.A.


More than 500 million people in the world are overweight, this “epidemic” covers all countries, including Russia, and there is both in adults and in children. This is usually attributed to a change in lifestyle and diet of modern people, that also may influence at intestinal microbiota. Microbiota takes part in the energy and fat metabolism, which has been proven in germ-free animals. Transplantation of microflora from overweight animals to germ-free ones contributed to the development of obesity, regardless of diet. Obesity is accompanied by mild chronic inflammation, it can be a result of changing of intestinal microbiota. Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) of Gram (–) intestinal bacteria via activation of TLR-4 are the main cause of this inflammation. Intestinal microbiota of obese and slim is different. Obesity increases the number of Clostridia and Gram (–) Proteobacteria, reduced number of Bacteroides and Bifidobacteria. Recent works showed the positive influence of probiotics, particularly infant Bifidobacteria strains, on metabolic syndrome, in particular, the level of glucose, insulin, cholestero

Aleksandrovich Y.S., Pshenisnov K.V., Andreyev V.V., Parshin Y.V., Cherevatenko R.I., Nurmagambetova B.K.


This article analyzes the influence of interhospital transportation duration of newborns in critical state on the close outcome. The features of intensive care measures, the frequency of seizures, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and open arterial duct were studied regarding the age at which an infant was admitted to a neonatal ICU in a hospital of III level. It was found that transportation of critically ill infants at the age of one day or three days of life was associated with high risk of complications in the neonatal period. It was shown that the optimal time for interhospital transportation of a newborn baby to an intensive care unit of a hospital of III level is the second day after birth.

New aspects of the mechanisms of development and treatment of irritable bowel syndrome

Tipikina M.Y., Korniyenko Y.A.


In 121 children with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) a complex evaluation of the values of volum threshold sensitivity (VTS) of the rectum, intestinal microbiota according to the findings of feces analysis and lactulose hydrogen test, and also of the activation of inflammation according to endoscopy, histology, stool calprotectin testing and proinflammatory cytokines in the colonic mucosa was performed. The estimation of these parameters before and after treatment with probiotics, trimebutin, combination therapy of pro-and prebiotics, combination therapy trimebutin and probiotics for 1 month. The control group were children receiving placebo. In all patients with IBS enhanced VTS was noted. Signs of inflammation were detected according to the findings of endoscopy in 66.9 %, of histology – in 97.5 %, enhanced levels of calprotectin were found in 27.3 %, enhanced levels of IL-8 — 45 at %, INF-γ — 90 %. In all patients with IBS have disbiotic disorders of the colon, sings of bacterial overgrowth syndrome were detected in 85.1 % of children. Probiotics effective in reducing the VTS, improving of clinical data,microbiological indices, and coping with of inflammatory disorders in the intestines. Are the most effective of treatment with both trimebutin and probiotics, or probiotics and prebiotic lasting at least one month.

Metabolic syndrome and morphofunctional state of pancreas in children: clinical and pathogenetic relationship

Bokova T.A.


The aim of the study: evaluation of pancreatic morphofunctional state of children with metabolic syndrome (MS). 48 children were examined with different shapes and degrees of obesity, ranging in age from 6 to 15 years old (23 males and 25 females). 2 selected groups: core group-31 child with MS, the comparison group-17 children with obesity without signs of MS. Decrease the postprandial response of the pancreas, which indicates lower adaptive capacity and high risk of development of chronic pancreatitis in children with MS. The interrelation between the overall size of the gland before and after food load with violations of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The results indicate the need for in-depth surveys of children with a view to the correction of excretory and endocrine functions of the pancreas decrease in risk of formation of MS

Kamilova A.T., Dustmuhamedova D.H., Khushvaktova Z.A., Sirov B.N.


The results of study of energy metabolism’s infringement and possibilities of its correction in children suffering from celiac disease are presented in the article. The study was conducted from January 2009 till December, 2012 in department of gastroenterology RSSM of Center of pediatrics. 45 children with CD at the age from 3 till 14 years have been surveyed. The carried out researches have shown at patients with CD processes of energy formation are broken: synthesis АТF and АDF is lowered, their ratio is increased, values of LTT and GТТ are lowered in 4 times. Increment of a ratio laktat/piruvat is detected, that testifies to prevalence at children tissue hypoxia. Treatment of patients suffering from CD application of use phytoecdisteroid ecdisten reduces duration of kliniko-laboratory symptoms and improves values of energy metabolism.

Vokhmyanina N.V., Gavrilyuk I.P.


Most of the recent studies suggest that oats are well tolerated by celiac disease patients. However, it is still possible that different oat cultivars may display different biological properties relevant for celiac disease pathogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate biological and immunological properties of two oat varieties, in relation to their safety for CD patients. Our data show different immunological properties of two oat varieties for celiac disease patients. It is necessary update on serologic testing for anti-avenin antibodies for individualization gluten-free diet.

Reshetnik L.A., Parfenova Y.O., Krivickaya N.S.


Acetonemic vomiting is a syndromic condition that occurs in 4–7-year-old children more often than in the other age groups (t = 53,5; p(0,001). Girls are more exposed to acetonemia (t = 55,5; p(0,001), but its severity is more expressed in boys (the average duration of ketoacidosis for boys is 1,58 days, for girls — 1,17 days (t = 3,8; p(0,001). There is also more expressed ketoacidosis in pre-school children as compared with toddlers (t = 2,9; p(0,01) and compared with school-age children (t = 2,8; p(0,01). There are no reliable gender differences in ketoacidosis’ severity. Now the number of children hospitalized to Ivano-Matreninskaya state pediatric hospital with cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) has increased by 8 times in the last 10 years.

The study involved 653 patients with nephrolithiasis. A multivariate based on discriminant analysis model predicting the risk of bilateral nephrolithiasis development was constructed. Clinical testing revealed high ability of the proposed mathematical model for predicting the development of bilateral nephrolithiasis. The relative risk criterion is highly informative to predict the risk of bilateral nephrolithiasis development. The signs of the high-risk are: urine pH rise over 6.1, concentration of the urine magnesium decrease under 2.26 mmole/l, level of the urine saturation with calcium oxalate over 3.27 and the relative tubular reabsorption under 97.5 %.

Evaluation of different methods of iodine prophylaxis in infants in the region of mild iodine deficiency

Belykh N.A., Mamenko M.Y.


Aim: To evaluate of the effectiveness of different methods of iodine prophylaxis in infants. Materials and Methods: The dynamic monitoring of pregnant and lactating mothers and their infants with iodine supplementation (potassium iodine, iodized salt) and without it. Results: Lack of antenatal iodine supplementation leads to a complicated course of the perinatal period, an increase of frequency of gestational hypothyroxinemia and neonatal hyperthyrotropinemia. Infants without iodine prophylaxis have higher levels of TSH and lower content of fT4. Conclusion: The most effective method of iodine supplementation in infants is individual iodine prophylaxis with potassium iodide in pregnant and lactating mother.
