    Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis resulting in respiratory insufficiency is frequently encountered during the winter season in paediatric intensive care units. This review evaluates potential determinants described in severe RSV bronchiolitis with special attention to the role of...

    Background: Deviations in composition and diversity of intestinal microbiota in infancy have been associated with both the development and recurrence of atopic eczema. Thus, we decided to use a deep and global microarray-based method to characterize the diversity and temporal changes of the...

    Objective The early intestinal microbiota exerts important stimuli for immune development, and a reduced microbial exposure as well as caesarean section (CS) has been associated with the development of allergic disease. Here we address how microbiota development in infants is affected by mode of...

    Clostridium difficile colonization appears as an age-dependent process in healthy infants, with 2 acquisition periods, both of which are associated with microbiota composition variations. Strains causing disease in adults circulate in infants from the community, who represent a potential...

    Background: Helicobacter pylon is one of the commonest causes of chronic infection of mankind, yet the natural history of acute infection is poorly understood. Some studies suggest that gastric colonisation with H pylon is associated with suboptimal nutrition and growth in childhood. Aims: To...

    To investigate the effects of mode of delivery and of necrotising enterocolitis on the faecal microflora, 140 infants born before 33 weeks of gestation were followed up for symptoms of necrotising enterocolitis. Stool samples for gas-liquid chromatography and culture were collected twice weekly,...

    Rapid growth during infancy is associated with increased risk of overweight and obesity and differences in weight gain are at least partly explained by means of infant feeding. The aim was to assess the associations between infant feeding practice in early infancy and body mass index (BMI) at 6...

    Purpose: Studies on iron status in infancy and early childhood have shown contradicting results concerning prolonged breast-feeding and cow's milk intake. The aim of the present study was to investigate associations between iron status among one-year-olds and feeding, with focus on the type of...
