  • 4. WelcomeImportant Dates to PAS 2013 washington DC! What is the PAS? The Pediatric Academic Societies consist of four pediatric organizations, the American Pediatric Society, the Society for Pediatric Research, the Academic Pediatric Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, along with their alliance partners and affiliate organizations, representing over 26 pediatric subspecialty organizations and clubs, who meet with or co-sponsor programming at the annual meeting. At the PAS annual meeting you will hear invited science from world renown experts, hear the latest in original research, learn “first hand and close up” at workshops, share experiences in special interest groups, discuss controversial hot topics, honor the achievements of young investigators and senior, esteemed pediatricians, and share and network with colleagues and friends. Who attends the PAS? Last year we enjoyed a record breaking attendance! Over 7067 pediatricians, research scientists, health care providers, and policy makers, including 1508 international attendees, attended the PAS annual meeting in Boston. We hope PAS 2013 in Washington DC will welcome even more attendees who can enjoy our Opening Session, followed by a meeting full of Presidential Addresses, Hot Topics, Topic Symposia, State of the Art Plenary Lectures, Workshops, Special Interest Groups, Clubs, and Awards Sessions in a variety of areas, including basic and clinical science, medical education, global health, and quality in medicine. Check out the Public Policy Councils’ 2013 Breakfast and learn about the impact of the 2012 Election Results on medical care and medical research! This year, we will also host several sessions dedicated to advocacy. Learn how you can make a difference! Get up early and you can also meet a professor at our small group “Meet the Professor Breakfast” morning session. Post doctoral fellows will enjoy the Core Curriculum for American Board of Pediatric Subspecialty Training Session. And much, much more! Navigating the four days of intense sessions can be daunting, so use the Topic Tracks at the front of the program to help you map your chosen sessions. Who enjoys the PAS? Everyone who attends should have a wonderful experience. Family badges are also available. Special celebrations will be held for two landmark “birthdays” this year – The American Pediatric Society will be celebrating their 125th and the March of Dimes will be celebrating their 75th ! In addition to the meeting sessions, there is opportunity for evening socials, alumni receptions, dinner with friends, and sightseeing around exciting and historic Washington DC.

  • 6. American Pediatric Society APS is an organization bringing men and women together for the advancement of the study of children and their diseases, for the prevention of illness and the promotion of pediatric education and research, and to honor those who, by their contributions to pediatrics, have aided in its advancement. Society for Pediatric Research SPR is an international society for scientists whose purpose is to encourage investigation of a broad range of areas involving the health and well being of children. This is facilitated by providing a forum for interchange of ideas and providing opportunity for young investigators to present their work. This is accomplished through membership activities, the annual research meeting and the sponsorship of several awards. Academic Pediatric Association The APA is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all children and adolescents by promoting research, advancing a scholarly approach to education, developing innovations in health care delivery, advocating for an equitable child health agenda, and fostering leadership and career development of child health professionals. This is accomplished through membership activities, funded research and teaching programs and advocacy to affect public and governmental opinion positively for children. American Academy of Pediatrics AAP is an organization with primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, and pediatric surgical specialists committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental and social health for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults. About the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting The PAS welcomes subspecialty societies and clubs who meet or co-host programming during the PAS Annual Meeting. Together we share a common interest about the importance of children’s health, today and in the future. Attendance at an alliance meeting is open; some require a registration fee separate from the PAS, while others do not. Refer to the section on alliance programming beginning on page 50 for general information and program details specific to each alliance.

  • 10. Core Curriculum Opportunities Core Curriculum for ABP Subspecialty Training The PAS is particularly dedicated to the education of trainees and continues to provide a comprehensive core curriculum for fellows that address areas of academic development identified in the guidelines summarized in the American Board of Pediatrics Guidelines for Fellowship Training. Workshops scheduled throughout the PAS meeting focus on skill and knowledge acquisition that are appropriate for individuals at the fellowship level of training and provide a foundation for those who may not have had exposure to some required topics, as well as those who wish to pursue a topic in greater depth in the future. It is intended that these themes will repeat each year so individual curriculums can be created to complement education provided by local fellowship training programs. Certificates of completion will be distributed to attendees following the meeting via email. Topics are outlined below. A comprehensive listing of core curriculum sessions will be available online and published in the final program guide next April. • Achievement of Proficiency in Teaching • Application of Basic Science Techniques to Translational Research • Clinical Research Methods and Study Design • Critical Literature Review • Ethical Conduct in Research • Introduction to biostatistics • Preparation of Abstracts and Brief Scientific Presentations • Preparation of Applications for Grants • Preparation of Applications for Institutional Review Boards • Preparation of Scientific Manuscripts • Principles of Evidence-Based Medicine Core Curriculum Fellows’ Series In addition to many workshops dedicated to the topics listed above, the PAS and the APPD will sponsor a special program on Friday afternoon and evening, May 3, 2013: This special program will be for fellows only. In addition to the learning experience it will provide a unique opportunity to network with other fellows and to get oriented to the PAS meeting. • When – Friday May 3, 1:00pm-6:30pm • Where – Washington Convention Center, Washington D.C. • Who should attend – fellows from all pediatric specialties • Registration fee – A $100 registration fee is required in addition to the PAS registration fee.  This separate registration is on the PAS registration form. Please see page 93. • Attendance is limited • Three Tracks with 3 sessions (60-120 minutes each): Track 1 – Writing Your First Paper- How to Make Sure it Gets Accepted – Recognizing Common Biostatistical Errors – Effective, Efficient and Innovative Teaching as a Fellow Track 2 – Principles of Research Ethics for Fellows- Successfully Navigating the IRB – Grant Writing – Designing Surveys to Measure Outcomes in Research, Quality Improvement and Educational Projects Track 3 – Humanistic Leadership – Qualitative Research Methods – Getting Yourself Promoted A wine and cheese reception will follow with special presentations from PAS leaders. A certificate will be emailed to all attendees at the sessions.  Please contact the PAS Workshop Office if you have questions at: info@pasworkshop.org. Friday, May 3 1:00pm–6:30pm Core Curriculum Fellows` Series PAS/APPD Symposium- Preregistration Required Three 60-120 minutes sessions will be presented in each of three tracks. Preregistration was required to attend. A reception will follow with special presentations from PAS leaders. This series is designed to meet elements of the core curriculum for pediatric fellowship subspecialty training. A certificate will be emailed to everyone in attendance. Core Curriculum Fellows` Series-Track I 1:00 Writing Your First Paper - How To Make Sure It Gets Accepted Writing your first paper is a challenge. In this session we will discuss how to get started - from properly formatting a draft to selecting the right journal. We will review all aspects of a paper, including the abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, tables, figures, and references. Authorship issues and how to help reviewers appreciate the importance of your paper will be discussed. Peer-reviewed papers are an important ingredient in academic success. At the end of this session the goal is to ensure that you will be more comfortable submitting your first paper. Howard C. Bauchner, JAMA, Chicago, IL 2:30 Break 2:45 Recognizing Common Biostatistical Errors This will be an abbreviated and/or accelerated version of the workshop of the same name. The errors covered will depend partly on the interests of the group. They may include standard error vs. standard deviation, nonindependence, use of paired measurements, meaning of P-values, confidence intervals Thomas B. Newman, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 4:45 Break 5:00 Effective, Efficient, and Innovative Teaching as a Fellow With increasing pressures to learn the knowledge, skills, and other competencies required for fellowship training, teaching of medical students and residents has the tendency to become less of a priority at this level of training.Yet fellows are frequently called upon to teach trainees in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Effective, efficient, and innovative teaching strategies are needed, and this workshop will provide attendees with such strategies. A variety of teaching techniques including the use of “trigger” videotapes, live demonstrations and discussion will be used to highlight key take- home concepts that are designed to improve the teaching skills of participants.

  • 11. Lewis R. First, Editor-in-Chief, Pediatrics, University of Vermont College of Medicine, Burlington, VT 6:30 Wine and Cheese Reception 1:00pm–6:30pm Core Curriculum Fellows` Series-Track II 1:00 Successfully Navigating the IRB: Principles of Research Ethics for Fellows Fellowship training provides opportunities for scholarly pursuits which often include research with human subjects. Fellows may be responsible for drafting clinical research protocols and seeking approval from their local IRB. Knowledge and skills in research ethics are crucial for all fellows who will engage in clinical investigations. This session will provide attendees with a review of key concepts related to the ethical conduct of research. Using a case-based format, participants will explore the principles most salient to research ethics and most closely examined by the IRB including the definition of a human subject, the components of informed consent, and the concept of therapeutic misconception. Through this session, fellows will develop a more thorough understanding of central tenets of research ethics thereby optimizing their success in navigating the IRB approval process. Jennifer C Kesselheim, Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center, Boston, MA 2:30 Break 2:45 Grant Writing–Key Components and Strategies for Success Grant writing is a critical skill for many fellows and faculty. While the details of funding applications vary, there are many common elements across funding sources and shared strategies for success. The objectives of the session are: 1) to demystify the grant application process; 2) identify potential funding sources for new investigators;3) consider key components of grant applications; and 4) discuss strategies for success. Cynthia S. Minkovitz, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, MD Kurt H. Albertine, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 4:15 Break 4:30 Designing Surveys to Effectively Measure Outcomes in Research, Quality Improvement, and Educational Projects Surveys are an increasingly important and commonly used tool to answer a broad range of research questions, evaluate educational programs, measure the effect of quality improvement activities, or identify strengths and weaknesses of virtually any project. Indeed, surveys are likely familiar to all of us and often appear deceptively easy to construct.Yet the reality is that optimal survey design can be very challenging because there are numerous common pitfalls that can yield data that are not valid and do not answer the intended research/project question. The goal of this session is to give participants the basic tools needed to create more valid and useful surveys for a wide range of projects. All attendees will be encouraged to participate in a pre-conference survey that will serve as an example of the concepts, methods and skills of survey design. At the conference, the session will begin with an interactive didactic review of basic concepts (introduction to validity and reliability as it relates to survey design and collection) and skills (question formulation, response scales, and data collection methods). This will be followed by a paired learning activity where participants will practice using a survey design and quality control worksheet to critique the pre- conference survey and other select survey questions. The session will conclude with a discussion of the work of the paired groups and answer other questions related to survey design and administration. Participants will leave the session with a basic understanding of optimal survey design, a worksheet that provides a step-by-step guide to developing surveys, and a clear strategy that can be used to write valid survey questions and identify appropriate response scales for nearly any project. Daniel C. West, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA Timothy Kelly, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA Core Curriculum Fellows` Series-Track 3 1:00 Humanistic Leadership Fellows are likely to assume leadership positions in the future and need to know the variety of possible leadership styles and when to match a given style to a leadership role. This lecture explores a variety of leadership methods. The technique of humanistic leadership will be stressed. At the end of this session, participants should be able to name and understand 3 or 4 leadership styles and know the place of each in a leader’s toolbox. They will be able to identify the advantages of humanistic leadership. They will also be able to identify “anti-leaders” and the role they play in organizational dynamics. Stephen Ludwig, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 2:00 Break 2:15 Qualitative Research Methods We will explore reasons for choosing qualitative methodology to answer a research question and fellows will be given hands- on experience with data collection methods including interview techniques. Fellows will be given first-hand experience in analyzing qualitative data and will receive instruction on strategies for presenting qualitative data for presentations or publications. We will also discuss ethical challenges and best practices for handling qualitative data. Finally, fellows will be given opportunities to develop qualitative research questions based on their own areas of interest and explore and refine research strategies with peers and expert facilitators. Fellows will leave with materials to take back for use at their own program. By the end of this session, fellows will be able to identify when qualitative methodology is appropriate for answering a research question. Fellows will understand qualitative research principles for data collection, analysis and dissemination and the challenges associated with collecting and managing qualitative data. Erika Abramson, MD, Joshua E. Richardson, PhD, MLIS, MS, Weill Cornell Medical College, NewYork, NY 4:15 Break 4:30 Getting Yourself Promoted Are you ready for promotion?  As soon as you finish fellowship and take your first academic position, you should begin to think about getting promoted.  Whether you are a researcher or a clinician-educator, the promotion process can be challenging to navigate. You need to understand promotion criteria so you can be successful in an academic career. This session will help you to craft your CV so it tells your story effectively.  Leaders will discuss the need to develop and keep up an educator’s portfolio so you can get credit for all of your accomplishments.  The importance of a good mentor and of “good citizenship” will be highlighted.  Leaders will review and critique sample CVs and educator portfolios to demonstrate important points. Mary Ottolini, MD The George Washington University School of Medicine, Washington D.C. , Tina Chang MD, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine 6:30pm–7:30pm Core Curriculum Fellows` Series– Wine and Cheese Reception A meet and great will follow with special presentations from PAS leaders.

The selection of participants is competitive, and is based on a review of an application which includes a personal statement, project proposal, CV, and letters of reference. Scholars must be or become a member of the Academic Pediatric Association. What does the ESP curriculum include? Briefly, the curriculum includes three didactic sessions, review of 2 workshops at the PAS meeting, completion of learning modules between PAS meetings, development of an educator portfolio, and completion of a mentored project. Scholars are expected to commit 10% FTE to the program in order to complete the full curriculum, including projects, over 3 years. They pay an enrollment fee of $5000. • Didactic sessions. The core curriculum is taught in 8-hour didactic/interactive sessions offered each year at PAS for three consecutive years. The sessions include both discussions of theory and practical, hands- on activities, with many opportunities for collegial interactions. Encouragement of networking among Scholars is a high priority for the program. • Workshop review. In Year 1, Scholars must thoughtfully evaluate two PAS workshops, symposia, or other organized educational activities at the PAS meeting. • Intersession activities. Between PAS meetings, scholars communicate via telephone and the program website, complete reading assignments, and develop an educator portfolio. • Mentored projects. The self-directed, experiential component of the program is a mentored, scholarly educational project. Development of creative content and formats for projects is encouraged. Scholars are responsible for finding their own mentors; an ESP faculty advisor is also assigned to each scholar. Projects must culminate in a peer reviewed publication or a peer reviewed presentation or workshop at meetings of the PAS, AAMC, or an equivalent organization. What are the requirements for obtaining a Certificate of Excellence? Scholars must: • Attend the full duration of the three teaching sessions at PAS (8 hrs each over three years). • Complete all curriculum activities described above. • Conduct a mentored project, documented by annual progress reports. At completion of the project, the Scholar must provide evidence of a successfully peer reviewed presentation or publication related to the project. How to apply? Online applications are due in early October in years when new cohorts are being recruited. Cohort 6, recruited in 2012, will begin the program in May 2013. The next recruitment year is 2015. More information about the program is available at: http://www.academicpeds.org/ education/education_scholars_program. cfm Who is leading this program?

  • 19. Program Formats State of the Art Plenary These sessions update and solidify understanding in interdisciplinary areas of pediatric medicine. They are commonly forums for the presentation of new developments and seminal advances in biomedical research and involve invited lectures from international leaders in the field. They are designed to be of interest to a very broad range of attendees. Pre-enrollment is not required. Topic Symposia These sessions address issues and controversies around topics of interest to a particular audience. As such, they are generally focused on a more specific topic than the State of the Art Plenary and often allow time for active audience discussion. Topic Symposia run concurrent with the original science platform sessions, poster symposia and workshops. Pre-enrollment is not required. Hot Topics These sessions focus on areas of rapid clinical discovery and excitement and address “Hot Topics,” controversial issues and seek to stimulate new areas of research or interactions for participants in targeted areas. Time is usually scheduled for active audience participation. Pre-enrollment is not required. Mini Courses These sessions address important, relevant topics of interest to all attendees from trainees to senior faculty. They are usually targeted to new, broad-based clinical strategies or techniques, which often are not for any specific discipline or subset of participants. The emphasis is on practical and useful information for the practicing physician or provider of care and is designed to be highly interactive. Pre-enrollment is not required. Meet the Professor Breakfast Sessions These sessions provide trainees and junior faculty the opportunity to meet with senior academic physicians who can provide insights in their field and provide career guidance in a small interactive group. These breakfast sessions will be on Sunday, May 5, from 7:00am to 8:00am. Sessions are small and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Pre-enrollment is not required. PAS Workshops Workshop topics selected for the 2013 meeting are located on page 18.

This series is designed to meet elements of the core curriculum for pediatric fellowship subspecialty training. A certificate will be emailed to everyone in attendance. Core Curriculum Fellows` Series-Track I 1:00 Writing Your First Paper - How To Make Sure It Gets Accepted Writing your first paper is a challenge. In this session we will discuss how to get started - from properly formatting a draft to selecting the right journal. We will review all aspects of a paper, including the abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, tables, figures, and references. Authorship issues and how to help reviewers appreciate the importance of your paper will be discussed. Peer-reviewed papers are an important ingredient in academic success. At the end of this session the goal is to ensure that you will be more comfortable submitting your first paper. Howard C. Bauchner, JAMA, Chicago, IL 2:30 Break 2:45 Recognizing Common Biostatistical Errors This will be an abbreviated and/or accelerated version of the workshop of the same name. The errors covered will depend partly on the interests of the group. They may include standard error vs. standard deviation, nonindependence, use of paired measurements, meaning of P-values, confidence intervals Thomas B. Newman, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 4:45 Break 5:00 Effective, Efficient, and Innovative Teaching as a Fellow With increasing pressures to learn the knowledge, skills, and other competencies required for fellowship training, teaching of medical students and residents has the tendency to become less of a priority at this level of training. Yet fellows are frequently called upon to teach trainees in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Effective, efficient, and innovative teaching strategies are needed, and this workshop will provide attendees with such strategies. A variety of teaching techniques including the use of “trigger” videotapes, live demonstrations and discussion will be used to highlight key take-home concepts that are designed to improve the teaching skills of participants. Lewis R. First, Editor-in-Chief, Pediatrics, University of Vermont College of Medicine, Burlington, VT 6:30 Wine and Cheese Reception 1:00pm–6:30pm Core Curriculum Fellows` Series-Track II 1:00 Successfully Navigating the IRB: Principles of Research Ethics for Fellows Fellowship training provides opportunities for scholarly pursuits which often include research with human subjects. Fellows may be responsible for drafting clinical research protocols and seeking approval from their local IRB. Knowledge and skills in research ashington DC 21www.pas-meeting.org ashington DC
  • 24. Friday, May 3 Daily Programming S ethics are crucial for all fellows who will engage in clinical investigations. This session will provide attendees with a review of key concepts related to the ethical conduct of research. Using a case-based format, participants will explore the principles most salient to research ethics and most closely examined by the IRB including the definition of a human subject, the components of informed consent, and the concept of therapeutic misconception. Through this session, fellows will develop a more thorough understanding of central tenets of research ethics thereby optimizing their success in navigating the IRB approval process. Jennifer C Kesselheim, Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center, Boston, MA 2:30 Break 2:45 Grant Writing–Key Components and Strategies for Success Grant writing is a critical skill for many fellows and faculty. While the details of funding applications vary, there are many common elements across funding sources and shared strategies for success. The objectives of the session are: 1) to demystify the grant application process; 2) identify potential funding sources for new investigators;3) consider key components of grant applications; and 4) discuss strategies for success. Cynthia S. Minkovitz, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, MD Kurt H. Albertine, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 4:15 Break 4:30 Designing Surveys to Effectively Measure Outcomes in Research, Quality Improvement, and Educational Projects Surveys are an increasingly important and commonly used tool to answer a broad range of research questions, evaluate educational programs, measure the effect of quality improvement activities, or identify strengths and weaknesses of virtually any project. Indeed, surveys are likely familiar to all of us and often appear deceptively easy to construct. Yet the reality is that optimal survey design can be very challenging because there are numerous common pitfalls that can yield data that are not valid and do not answer the intended research/project question. The goal of this session is to give participants the basic tools needed to create more valid and useful surveys for a wide range of projects. All attendees will be encouraged to participate in a pre-conference survey that will serve as an example of the concepts, methods and skills of survey design. At the conference, the session will begin with an interactive didactic review of basic concepts (introduction to validity and reliability as it relates to survey design and collection) and skills (question formulation, response scales, and data collection methods). This will be followed by a paired learning activity where participants will practice using a survey design and quality control worksheet to critique the pre-conference survey and other select survey questions. The session will conclude with a discussion of the work of the paired groups and answer other questions related to survey design and administration. Participants will leave the session with a basic understanding of optimal survey design, a worksheet that provides a step- by-step guide to developing surveys, and a clear strategy that can be used to write valid survey questions and identify appropriate response scales for nearly any project. Daniel C. West, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA Timothy Kelly, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA Core Curriculum Fellows` Series-Track 3 1:00 Humanistic Leadership Fellows are likely to assume leadership positions in the future and need to know the variety of possible leadership styles and when to match a given style to a leadership role. This lecture explores a variety of leadership methods. The technique of humanistic leadership will be stressed. At the end of this session, participants should be able to name and understand 3 or 4 leadership styles and know the place of each in a leader’s toolbox. They will be able to identify the advantages of humanistic leadership. They will also be able to identify “anti-leaders” and the role they play in organizational dynamics. Stephen Ludwig, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 2:00 Break 2:15 Qualitative Research Methods We will explore reasons for choosing qualitative methodology to answer a research question and fellows will be given hands- on experience with data collection methods including interview techniques. Fellows will be given first-hand experience in analyzing qualitative data and will receive instruction on strategies for presenting qualitative data for presentations or publications. We will also discuss ethical challenges and best practices for handling qualitative data. Finally, fellows will be given opportunities to develop qualitative research questions based on their own areas of interest and explore and refine research strategies with peers and expert facilitators. Fellows will leave with materials to take back for use at their own program. By the end of this session, fellows will be able to identify when qualitative methodology is appropriate for answering a research question. Fellows will understand qualitative research principles for data collection, analysis and dissemination and the challenges associated with collecting and managing qualitative data. Erika Abramson, MD, Joshua E. Richardson, PhD, MLIS, MS, Weill Cornell Medical College, NewYork, NY 4:15 Break 4:30 Getting Yourself Promoted Are you ready for promotion?  As soon as you finish fellowship and take your first academic position, you should begin to think about getting promoted.  Whether you are a researcher or a clinician-educator, the promotion process can be challenging to navigate.  You need to understand promotion criteria so you can be successful in an academic career. This session will help you to craft your CV so it tells your story effectively.  Leaders will discuss the need to develop and keep up an educator’s portfolio so you can get credit for all of your accomplishments.  The importance of a good mentor and of “good citizenship” will be highlighted.  Leaders will review and critique sample CVs and educator portfolios to demonstrate important points.

  • 25. Saturday, May 4 Daily Programming Saturday, May 4 7:00am–8:00am 1050A Bone Disease PES Meet the Professor Anna Spagnoli Bone disease in childhood is becoming increasingly recognized as a major health problem that has implications for a lifetime. This session will consist of clinically relevant case discussions emphasizing common and uncommon manifestations of pediatric bone disease. 7:00am–8:00am 1055A Improving the Transition between Pediatric and Adult Health Care for Adolescents with Diabetes PES Practice Workshop Leader: Henry Rodriguez The 2002 Consensus Statement “Health Care Transitions for Young Adults with Special Health Care Needs” was developed to highlight the importance of transition of care of children with special health care needs and empower health care providers with the knowledge and skills necessary to facilitate this process. A decade later, formal transition of care programs are still lacking in many endocrine practices, compromising the continued care of young adults with diabetes after they leave the pediatric practice. This workshop is designed to acquaint the attendee with an understanding of the importance of transition of care for individuals with diabetes, the barriers to providing optimal transition of care, and how to overcome them. A model of a successful transition of care program will be shared so that practitioners can gain insight into how they can implement their own program. 7:00am–8:00am 1060A Coffee and Light Breakfast with Pediatric Nephrology Fellows and Faculty Chair: Isa Ashoor An informal gathering for residents and students interested in a career in pediatric nephrology to meet and discuss life and training issues with current nephrology fellows and faculty; also at this event, fellows will share the program highlights and explain which sessions are of particular value for student and resident learners. 7:00am–9:00am 1075A Bilirubin Club: Neonatal Hemolysis Chairs: Vinod K. Bhutani and David K. Stevenson Bilirubin Club 2013 will review the existing literature and clinical practices to determine neonatal hemolysis. In addition to the understanding of how the catabolism of the heme moiety of hemoglobin leads to carbon monoxide production, formation of carboxyhemoglobin and its eventual elimination in the expired breath will be reviewed. An open forum will follow to debate: i) the need to establish a determination of hemolysis; ii) clinical significance of bilirubin production; and iii) future directions to identify clinical risk of hemolysis in order to selectively target extensive hematological inquiry. Alvin Zipursky; Ron J. Wong 8:00am–10:00am 1100 Child Health Policy in the 21st Century: Responding to Complex Childhood Illness and to the Complicated Determinants of Wellbeing PAS Topic Symposium Chair: Neal Halfon Significant epidemiologic, demographic and financial pressures shape the challenges facing child health in the 21st century. Evolving burden of childhood disease and disability complicate existing health system structures and progressive understanding of complex life-course interactions test existing government-run processes. Crafting and executing effective policy responses to these challenges is necessary, and requires comprehensive understanding of the current social and political landscape, solid knowledge of the available economic and legislative levers, and sophisticated awareness of the need for multisectoral governance structures in solution design, implementation and evaluation. This session will explore critical child health and wellbeing policy questions, including the impact of rising rates of complex, chronic conditions among children and youth, our evolving understanding of the importance of early childhood experiences on health throughout the life course, and the need to balance the demands of clinical care with the social determinants of health for optimal child outcomes. James M. Perrin; Leona Cuttler; Sara Rosenbaum; Paul H. Wise; Charlotte Moore Hepburn 8:00am–10:00am 1105 Child Health Research: Future Needs, Future Vision PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: William W. Hay and Peter G. Szilagyi As part of the Federation of Pediatric Organization (FOPO) Visioning Process, the FOPO Child Health Research and Training Working Group explored opportunities, barriers, facilitating factors, and trends in basic and translational science, and reflected on the need and approach for basic (discovery) science and outcomes- based research along the life course over the next 20-30 years. In this Symposium, we will present our vision and suggested roadmap for enhancing research along multiple dimensions: along the life-course continuum, throughout the spectrum of basic to population-based research, and across the disciplines of basic and social sciences. Support from NIH and NICHD in particular is fundamental to this process, for the necessary infrastructure to do the research and the investigators to do it. Training required for discovery and translational science will need to be promoted in academic departments and will need to be structured to fit the respective disciplines. William W. Hay; Peter G. Szilagyi; Alan E. Guttmacher; Mark R. Schleiss; Allison Kempe; Steven H. Abman Jointly sponsored by the Federation of Pediatric Organizations and the Pediatric Academic Societies 8:00am–10:00am 1110 Confidential Care of Adolescents in the Age of EMR, EOB and ACO PAS State of the Art Plenary Chair: Lindsay A. Thompson This session will address the challenges and provide solutions to the challenges of the provision of confidential care to adolescents 23www.pas-meeting.org

Specific topics to be addressed will be guidelines for sharing the medical record, billing for confidential services and the provision of a uniform approach to confidential care for adolescents in a large network of primary care or primary care sites in a hospital based network. Lindsay A Thompson; Abigail English; Gale Burstein; Elizabeth Alderman Jointly sponsored by the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine and the Pediatric Academic Societies 8:00am–10:00am 1115 Current Advances in Neonatal Seizures PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Hanna C. Glass and Shinichi Hirose Neonatal seizures (NS) are common, but have diverse etiological conditions and are often refractory to commonly used therapies, making diagnosis and management challenging. Newer diagnostic strategies such as video-EEG monitoring with remote access and bedside aEEG allow real-time diagnosis and improved management. Furthermore, current management of NS, including newer anticonvulsant therapies, should improve patient outcomes. Unique Cl- properties in neonates that render their central nervous system GABAergic system excitatory rather than inhibitory may explain why GABAergic agents are often ineffective. Newly available genetic testing not only aids in the diagnosis of neonatal onset epilepsies, but also sheds light on the molecular causes of NS, which will enable development of novel therapeutic agents. This session will provide an update on current progress in NS including: an overview (Dr. Glass), diagnostic and therapeutic update on NS (Dr. Okumura), unique pathomechanisms underlying NS (Dr. Fukuda), and genetics of NS (Dr. Hirose). Hannah C. Glass; Akihisa Okumura; Atsuo Fukuda; Shinichi Hirose Jointly sponsored by the Asian Society for Pediatric Research, Child Neurology Society and the Pediatric Academic Societies 8:00am–10:00am 1120 Hypertension on the Mind: Childhood Hypertension and Neurocognition PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Coral D. Hanevold and Ibrahim Shatat The brain is a target organ for the adverse effects of hypertension. While overt cerebrovascular disease is extremely uncommon among children with chronically elevated blood pressure, adult studies and emerging pediatric data suggest that measurable cerebrovascular changes and functional neurocognitive effects may indeed be present in children. Against a background of what is known about executive brain function and cognitive effects of hypertension among adults, this symposium will explore these issues among children. Emerging techniques to measure cerebrovascular flow among hypertensive children offers a potential marker of neurocognitive risk. Epidemiological studies have begun to address whether there is a relationship between hypertension and learning disabilities in children. Finally, white coat hypertension is frequently encountered in children; does it have important medical implications, and does its presumed relationship to anxiety signify any neurocognitive or psychological link? Lawrence Appel; Marc B. Lande; Juan Kupferman; Joshua Samuels Jointly sponsored by the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology, International Pediatric Hypertension Association, Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics and the Pediatric Academic Societies 8:00am–10:00am 1125 The Power of Health Information Technology in the Intensive Care Unit PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Craig Garfield and Robin H. Steinhorn Personal technology usage in the form of personal computers and mobile devices has exploded in recent years. On a parallel track, technology use within the healthcare system has become ubiquitous, and deployment of electronic medical records and health information technology has become a public health and policy priority. This session will highlight the ability of technology to unite caregivers and families in the delivery of more effective and seamless care across the continuum of health care settings. We will present and discuss a number of innovative uses of both personal and institutional technologies that are designed and/or used to enhance communication, improve quality of care, and support patients and families as they navigate the healthcare system. We will also demonstrate the powerful potential of these technologies in unique health settings including the pediatric and newborn intensive care units, the newborn nursery, in rural locations, and in outpatient post- discharge practices.

Kramer and Joern-Hendrik Weitkamp Chorioamnionitis is the most significant source of prenatal inflammation and preterm delivery. Prematurity and prenatal inflammation are known risk factors for neonatal brain damage, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, altered intestinal vascular and epithelial development, and disrupted immune regulation. Fetal inflammatory responses cause long-lasting changes in gene expression and have been linked with cerebral paresis, autism and other possible lifelong adverse outcomes of prematurity. In this topic symposium experts in the field will review the multiorgan changes associated with chorioamnionitis and discuss novel approaches to interrupt damaging pathways and therefore significantly improve outcomes of prematurity.

Jobe 10:30am–12:30pm 1310 Contemporary Issues in Environmental Health for Pediatricians PAS State of the Art Plenary Chairs: Sophie J. Balk and Robert O. Wright The last half-century of environmental health research has deepened our understanding of the unique susceptibility of children to environmental stressors and raised consciousness of these contributions as an important facet of pediatric health. Environmental stressors to child health encompass not only environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals, but also include a broader range of factors such as the built environment, global warming and weather-related natural disasters (flooding), environmental accidents such as the Gulf oil spill, second-hand smoke, etc. Scientific insights on health consequences of environmental stressors have been translated to public health policy and their economic burden and impact on society are becoming increasingly recognized. This symposium will discuss the pediatric health implications of environmental stressors in a developmental context and review public health policy and economic implications of these findings. Sophie Julia Balk; Linda S. Birnbaum; Philip John Landrigan; Leo Trasande 10:30am–12:30pm 1315 Health and Wellbeing of Children and Adolescents Whose Parents Are Gay or Lesbian PAS Topic Symposium Chair: Ellen C. Perrin Despite increasing acceptance of diverse family structures, considerable controversy still surrounds families created by gay men and lesbians. Rapid and dramatic political and social forces highlight the importance to pediatricians of understanding current investigations regarding the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents in these families. Several international experts will present their research methods and their current data about the 1.5 to 2 million US children whose parent(s) is/are gay or lesbian, and will discuss the implications of their findings. Members of families created by gay men and lesbians will join the speakers to discuss their own experiences and answer audience questions. Ellen C. Perrin; Gary Gates; Nanette Gartrell; Susan Golombok 10:30am–12:30pm 1320 Meeting the Challenge of Diversity through Organizational Change PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Fernando S. Mendoza and Leslie R. Walker The demographics of US children are dramatically changing with traditional racial and ethnic minority children soon becoming the majority. Pediatrics must meet this challenge by examining the diversity of its workforce, training of culturally competent practitioners to provide efficient and equitable care, including ethnic and racial minorities in its research populations, and transforming health care with a focus on the population of children in the US. This symposium will present perspectives and activities of national organizations in support of diversity, particularly as it affects the field of pediatrics. An esteemed leadership panel consisting of Drs. Darrell Kirsch, Lawrence Tabak, Philip Pizzo, John R. Lumpkin, and Ron Copeland will present their views on the importance of diversity and how their perspectives impact change within their organizations. The goal of the symposium is to inform participants about what prominent national organizations are doing to promote diversity.

Permar and Paul W. Spearman It is estimated that 350,000 infants continue to acquire HIV infection annually, despite the efficacy of interventions to prevent mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. Thus, there remains a critical need for both improvement of global implementation of existing interventions and development of new interventions, including a maternal and/or infant vaccine to prevent MTCT. In this symposium, we will review natural protection against perinatal transmission of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), as well as examine recent findings regarding the role of HIV-specific adaptive and innate immune responses in protection of infants against HIV acquisition via breastfeeding and the ability to elicit these responses via infant or maternal vaccination. We will review the success of antiretroviral regimens for prevention of MTCT, the current World Health Organization MTCT prophylaxis recommendations, and the status of maternal/infant HIV immunization strategies to prevent MTCT of HIV.

Brown and Howard C. Bauchner During the last decade, maternal prescription opiate use (e.g. addiction or treatment of chronic pain) has increased substantially. This has had profound effects on the pregnant woman and fetus, resulting in dramatically more infants developing neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Although the use of opiates is recommended for treatment of NAS, there have been no studies comparing the most common treatments in infants with NAS. Most importantly, longer term safety and efficacy of these medications has never been established and possible genetic factors contributing to the incidence and severity of NAS have not been studied. This symposium will examine the impact of opiates on the pregnant woman, fetus, and newborn with NAS. A particular focus will be: 1) short and long-term effects of pre- and postnatal pharmacological replacement methodologies; 2) genetic and epigenetic risks influencing the incidence and severity of NAS; and 3) neurobehavioral outcomes of affected infants.

Bucciarelli and Leona Cuttler After the 2012 elections, the administration and new congress must address several issues critical to pediatrics and child health - including Childrens Health Insurance Program, NIH funding, potential changes to Medicaid, Medicaid parity with Medicare, and issues in implementation of the Affordable Care Act that are particularly relevant to children. Integral to decisions on these issues are two Senate committees (Finance; Health Education Labor Pensions), two House of Representatives committees (Energy and Commerce; Ways and Means), and the administration. This session will include a bipartisan panel of senior staff members from these key committees and an administration official. Designed to inform the pediatrics community about critical policy issues and facilitate communication with policy officials, the session will have two parts. First, each panelist will present a brief perspective on key issues for child health in the 113th Congress–including overview, options, roadblocks, and potential resolutions. Then, the audience will pose questions/comments, for a dynamic dialog.

The Impact of Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) on Child Health in the Present and Future PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: David M. Keller and Lisa Simpson Providing high-value health care requires practicing evidence-based medicine. Much of the evidence base, however, is built for adults. Meeting the health needs of children requires an investment in CER that focuses on the unique circumstances of children and adolescents. These include clinically important differences in epidemiology, demographics, developmental status and social dependence as well as methodological issues involving study design. This panel will review the recent history of child comparative effectiveness research, highlighting ways in which government, families and the practice community can collaborate to ensure that our investment in child comparative effectiveness research produces results that will improve the health of children.

Dreyer and Thomas McInerny There may be no greater threat to child health than poverty. Children are the poorest segment of our society; 22% of children in the US live below the federal poverty level, a prevalence that has persisted since the 1970s. Although our nation has made policy decisions to support the elderly (whose poverty prevalence has dropped from 35% in 1959 to 9% in 2010), we have not done the same for children. In contrast, the United Kingdom’s 13-year “war on childhood poverty” has cut their absolute childhood poverty rate from 26% in 1999 to 11% in 2010. Government policy and actions count! This plenary session will bring together pediatricians, economists, social scientists, and policy experts to discuss the definition and measurement of childhood poverty, current US government policies affecting childhood poverty, health insurance for poor children, and comparisons to and lessons from the UK experience.

Dugger; Jane Waldfogel; Timothy Smeeding; 2:45pm–4:45pm 1605 Dysregulated Inflammation in the Preterm Infant–A Common Pathway for Disease Risk and Long- Term Neurodevelopmental Impairment PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Erika C. Claud and Camilia R. Martin Unique developmental consequences and environmental exposures predispose the premature infant to dysregulated inflammation. This inappropriate inflammatory response leads to an increased risk for diseases such as neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis, chronic lung disease and periventricular leukomalacia. These conditions are unique to the preterm population. Clustering of these disorders suggest a shared mechanism in disease pathogenesis. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate the neonatal inflammatory response may have broad preventative and therapeutic potential. To date these pathways have primarily been studied in silos of a disease based context, but may have common features. A primary goal of this symposium is to bring together investigators focused on different inflammatory conditions of prematurity in order to facilitate questions, collaboration, and important cross discipline discussion. This symposium will be of interest to many subspecialty disciplines and will update the audience on important scientific advances in this rapidly expanding field. 27www.pas-meeting.org

Speakers will come from developed and developing countries. The role of training, capacity building, advocacy, clinical support and research will be discussed. Jean-Pierre Chanoine; Guy J. Van Vliet; Mohamed Abdullah; Nalini Shah Jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Endocrine Society, the Programme for Global Paediatric Research and the Pediatric Academic Societies 2:45pm–4:45pm 1625A Prevention, Pathophysiology, and Prognosis of Type 1 Diabetes PES Symposium Chairs: Linda A. DiMeglio and Kurt J. Griffin Type 1 diabetes remains a chronic disease that is controllable, at best. Recent research has provided insights into pancreatic hormone production during long-standing type 1 diabetes. New approaches are being developed to prevent complications and address the underlying autoimmunity. This symposium will provide an overview of these developments. Patricia M. Vuguin; Carla Greenbaum; Trevor J. Orchard; Roland Tisch 2:45pm–4:45pm 1630A Should Routine Meningococcal Immunization of Infants Be Implemented? PIDS Symposium Chairs: Dan M. Granoff and Stanley A. Plotkin The only natural habitat for meningococci is humans. Genetic and host factors, as well as age, contribute to vastly different risks of developing invasive meningococcal disease upon exposure to the organism. Novel vaccines offer the prospect of protecting all age groups, including infants, against meningococci (including serogroup B strains). The incidence of meningococcal disease, however, has declined by over 80% in the U.S, and it is unlikely that routine immunization of infants will be recommended because of limited cost-effectiveness. This symposium will review recent data on the safety and immunogenicity of conjugate and protein-based vaccines for prevention of disease in infants, as well as the regulatory challenges for licensing protein-based vaccines for prevention of meningococcal disease. Finally, the merits of routine use of meningococcal vaccines in infants in an era of declining disease incidence and heightened awareness of health care costs will be debated. Dan M. Granoff; Margaret Carlton Bash; Carol J. Baker; Steven B. Black 2:45pm–4:45pm 1635 Sickle Nephropathy: A Perfect Storm of Renal Injury PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: George J. Schwartz and Russell E.

Kaskel The Best Pharmaceutical for Children Act (BPCA) and Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) have generated 430 studies of products in children. However, many drugs used in pediatrics, and especially in neonates, still do not have adequate pharmacokinetic, dosing, safety and/or efficacy information to support their use and provide appropriate labeling information. Clinical and Translational Science Awards are designed to enhance the development of therapies to improve child health, but many investigators do not understand the essential global regulatory processes involved in adequately studying drugs for use with common or rare disorders. This session will review global investigational new drug processes as well as study design issues such as selection of appropriate endpoints, use of surrogates and/or biomarkers, ethical issues when using placebo controls, and extrapolation of adult data. The session will conclude with a presentation on how NIH and FDA prioritize drugs for study by many NIH-sponsored programs. 31www.pas-meeting.org

Martin and Josef Neu The microbes populating the human intestine are an important determinant of health and disease, but man-made environmental changes are completely altering our association with the microbial world. The genes constituting these microbes (the “microbiome”) is dynamically altered over time and with specific environmental perturbations (e.g. changes in diet, medications, agricultural practices, and probiotic administration). As a result, the microbiome can evolve within individuals and between populations differentially influencing health outcomes over time. It is critical to understand these dynamics to effectively evaluate therapeutic strategies aimed at altering health outcomes by altering the microbiota. Through a combination of a State-of-the-Art review of the literature and expert opinion, the role of the microbiome in the development of the adaptive immune response, the technological developments available to study the microbiome, and the challenges in evaluating the role of the microbiome in health and disease in an ever changing environment will be discussed.

Heitlinger Changes in healthcare financing have changed the models of care for children with chronic illness. Once upcoming change is the relationship between primary care referring physicians and the specialists with whom they work. The development of new models of payment will likely result in dramatic changes in how we communicate, are reimbursed and how risk is shared. The hope is that with implementation of co-management models of care that communication will improve, care will be more timely, coordinated and delivered by the appropriate provider in the optimal setting resulting in improved outcomes at lower cost. This symposium will review the current state of the art in this rapidly evolving area. Christopher J. Stille; Thomas S.

PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Melvin B. Heyman and Alison Holmes Well-baby nurseries vary widely in the proportion of breastfed newborns that receive formula, with pronounced differences by geographic region in the U.S. Many observational studies show that nursery formula use is associated with reduced breastfeeding duration; also, exclusive breastfeeding supports microbiota that may reduce infectious and allergic disease. However, the two experimental studies examining a sole intervention of nursery formula did not show a detrimental effect of formula on breastfeeding rates or duration, and reducing nursery formula may increase morbidity from hyperbilirubinemia and dehydration. Any beneficial impact of formula would be important to understand because initiatives from the Centers for Disease Control, Joint Commission and World Health Organization aim to reduce formula use for breastfed newborns during the birth hospitalization. After reviewing evidence for and against reducing nursery formula use, we will open the floor to a potentially lively discussion with panel response to audience questions. Cynthia R.

Mahan and Teri L. Turner Daily headlines flash new discoveries revolutionizing the practice of medicine! What is changing in healthcare and what do we need to know to best train pediatric providers across the continuum to provide high quality care in this evolving environment? Medical knowledge is doubling at an exponential rate. It is no longer a matter of memorization of knowledge but where to find needed information and how to apply best evidence to address patients’ needs. The science of neurobiology and education provides important insights to help learners translate knowledge and skills to their work environment. The goals of this session are to discuss current practices and future directions in pediatric health care and education in order to best prepare our learners for a dynamic future. Richard C.

Sanchez Respiratory viral infections represent the leading cause of hospitalization among infants and children worldwide. The introduction of molecular testing has improved significantly their specific diagnosis, and it has contributed to a better understanding of their epidemiology and pathogenesis. Issues surrounding diagnosis remain, and controversy exits regarding who to test and under what circumstances. In addition, the burden of disease among special populations such as immunocompromised hosts and infants in the neonatal intensive care unit has been under-recognized. This symposium will focus on currently available diagnostic methodologies for respiratory viral infections, pathogenesis of these infections, and patient outcomes. Gregory A.

Sunday, May 5 Daily Programming S 1:00pm–3:00pm 2650 The Critical Importance of Glucose in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Brandon Nathan and Jamie Wood Hyperglycemia in non-diabetic, critically ill patients is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Much controversy surrounds treatment thresholds and outcomes in hyperglycemic, critically ill adult patients. Parallel data in children are starting to emerge, in particular among cardiothoracic surgery patients, raising important treatment considerations in this and other pediatric populations. This symposium will explore the relationship between hyperglycemia and illness severity, the potential harmful effects associated with hypoglycemia in the ICU, and considerations for treatment of hyperglycemic pediatric patients.

Agus Jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Endocrine Society and the Pediatric Academic Societies 1:00pm–3:00pm 2655 The Gland - Brain Connection: Hormones, Cognition, and Behavior PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Philippe F. Backeljauw and Todd Nebesio Hormones have wide-ranging effects on the brain, both in utero and after birth. In the past decade, many investigators have demonstrated these effects in both animal models and humans. Endocrine abnormalities during early life may cause global neurologic changes, but may also affect specific brain functions leading to more subtle alterations. Androgens are known to affect gender role behavior but also have cognitive effects. Diabetes and hypoglycemia alter brain structure and function. IGF-1 influences multiple aspects of brain development. Hypothyroidism is one of the most common congenital anomalies, and although early treatment has largely eradicated resulting severe brain injury, subtle defects remain and are exacerbated by delayed or insufficient treatment.

Grimm and Priya Verghese Solid organ transplantation has made significant strides over the past decades in reducing graft loss through acute rejection. Unfortunately, greater immunosuppression has also led to increasing rates of post- transplant viral infections. Infections now represent the leading cause of hospitalization among pediatric renal transplant recipients. This session will provide state of the art updates in CMV prophylaxis, EBV and PTLD, BK virus nephropathy, and donor derived infections. Abhinav Humar; Vikas R. Dharnidharka; Jens W.D.

Hyun and Pablo J. Sanchez This symposium will review the latest developments in neonatal and pediatric antimicrobial stewardship, focusing on novel strategies tailored towards specific patient populations. First, antimicrobial prescription patterns and potential barriers to stewardship in neonatal intensive care units will be presented to illustrate approaches to designing and implementing stewardship in this setting. Second, the role of antimicrobial stewardship in special pediatric populations, such as solid organ and stem cell transplant patients, will be discussed. Next, the role of clinical guidelines in antimicrobial stewardship will be reviewed, including use as an educational tool for prescribing physicians, reference for defining appropriateness of antimicrobial use, and translation into computerized physician order entry. Lastly, antimicrobial stewardship based on prescriber feedback in general pediatric, office-based practices will be presented as a strategy for decreasing unnecessary antimicrobial use in this setting.

Guttentag and Parviz Minoo It has been a decade since the completion of the human genome project. Armed with this information scientists have identified genetic mutations responsible for single- gene disorders. In recent times, the advent of population-based genomic assays, novel approaches to data analysis, and expanded bio-informatics has enabled innovative approaches to identify novel candidate genes, disease modifying genes, and even more importantly biologic pathways that contribute to complex diseases typified by the application of “Genome-Wide Association Studies” or GWAS. Systems biology approaches have targeted adult diseases, with few efforts devoted to pediatric diseases and disorders. Weiniu Gan; Jennifer E. Van Eyk; Thomas J. Mariani; Richard Kellermayer; Nael A.

  • 39. Sunday, May 5 Daily Programming have significant effects on the brain and its development, including CoNS. Both of these issues are paramount in that they also represent the most common situations for EOS and LOS respectively. Recently the COIN published guidelines in direct conflict with the CDC 2010 statement regarding management of the asymptomatic term infant with risk factors. For LOS, CoNS remains the most common infection and is still treated in symptomatic patients whether only one or 2 blood cultures are positive. Additionally, CLABSIs require 2 or more positive blood cultures for CoNS. In this session we will explore the evidence and where it points us to for clinical practice and further research. 3:30pm–5:30pm 2775 Advances in DSD Management 8 Years after the Chicago Consensus PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Peter A. Lee and Heino F.L. Meyer-Bahlburg The diagnosis and management of children and adolescents with disorders of sexual development is challenging. The purpose of this symposium is to disseminate new knowledge regarding diagnosis, medical and surgical management, and psychological outcomes in children with DSD. Optimal care of these individuals involves a collaborative effort of neonatologists, geneticists, endocrinologists, surgeons and psychologists. Heino F.L. Meyer-Bahlburg; Eric J.

Portman and Thomas P. Shanley The inflammatory response is evident in and responsible for various manifestations of critical illness. Over the past decade much effort has been spent in understanding the inflammatory response and potential interventions directed at mitigating it. This state-of-the-art session will bring together experts to discuss the inflammatory response in critical illness. The symposium will discuss strategies to monitor and modulate the inflammatory response to optimize clinical care in an effort to impact patient outcome. Thomas P. Shanley; Michael A. Portman; Derek S. Wheeler; Eric M. Graham; David S. Cooper Jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society and the Pediatric Academic Societies 3:30pm–5:30pm 2785 Neonatal Presentations of Inheritable Neurologic Disease PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Taeun Chang and Adeline Vanderver Many congenital neurologic conditions go unrecognized or undiagnosed in the neonatal period. Clinical symptoms of encephalopathy, poor feeding, respiratory dependency, and high or low muscle tone can be non-specific to the nervous system or type of neurologic disorder. Meanwhile, the rapid progression of genetic testing, neurodiagnostic studies and biomarkers can make the workup and evaluation of such newborns daunting. As treatments and neurotherapies become a realization for some of these heritable neurologic disorders, their early recognition and diagnosis will be necessary. This symposium will focus on four major categories of neurologic conditions with common neonatal presentations: neuromuscular, epilepsy, white matter disorders and inborn errors of metabolism. The talks will review the most common or significant heritable neurologic disorders and their signs and symptoms with emphasis on their clinical mimickers, newly identified biomarkers and/or diagnostic testing, and potential available treatments.

  • 40. Sunday, May 5 Daily Programming 3:30pm–5:30pm 2800A Turner Syndrome: Update and Controversial Issues PES Symposium Chairs: Vaneeta Bamba and Carolyn A. Bondy Turner Syndrome is one of the most common sex chromosomal abnormalities. Amniocentesis or characteristic lymphedema at birth may lead to early diagnosis. Unfortunately, physical features of Turner syndrome are not always obvious, leading to diagnosis during the adolescent or even reproductive years. Undiagnosed, there is a risk of sudden death due to aortic dilation/abnormalities as well as hypertension, renal dysfunction and ovarian failure. Most of these individuals have normal cognition, but deficits in social performance, while not life-threatening, also prove quite challenging. This symposium will analyze some of the clinically relevant and controversial topics regarding Turner Syndrome. David E. Sandberg; G. Michael Silberbach; Nelly Mauras; Richard H. Reindollar 3:30pm–5:30pm 2805 What Is Healthy Infant Growth? Risks, Benefits, and Tradeoffs of Rapid Infant Weight Gain PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Mandy Brown Belfort and Elsie Taveras Rapid infant weight gain may have benefits, such as to neurodevelopment, but may also lead to obesity and other adverse outcomes. The rapid rise in obesity, even among the very young, suggests that prevention must begin early in life. Moderating excess infant weight gain may contribute to obesity prevention, but adverse consequences of such a strategy must also be considered for different populations of infants. This symposium will update participants on recent research regarding the risks and benefits of rapid infant weight gain, particularly with respect to later obesity and neurodevelopment. Speakers will contrast outcomes of rapid weight gain for preterm, growth restricted, and full term newborns; describe an ongoing intervention to limit excess infant weight gain; and outline a framework for promoting healthy growth for both vulnerable and healthy populations of infants.

This session will cover the clinical application of newer options for the care of children with diabetes. 7:00am–8:00am 3045A Optimizing the Revenue Cycle PES Practice Workshop Leaders: Mark W. Parker and Paul S. Thornton Consumer driven health plans have shifted a larger portion of the financial burden to the patient. Failure to collect the patient portion of the bill at the point of service results in the money having to be collected later, an unnecessarily expensive and time consuming step. Central billing offices may be helpful, but they generally have higher priorities than Pediatric Endocrinology practices, because our balances are significantly less than other specialties. The physicians who attend this workshop will leave with a better understanding of how the revenue cycle works and specifically what questions to ask their office managers to ensure that steps are being followed. From the standpoint of the academic center, revenue is just as important, and the workshop will also present a novel way of illustrating this to administrators whose solution for poor revenue flow is simply to insist that clinicians see more patients. 7:00am–8:00am 3050A The Public Policy Council 2013 Legislative Breakfast: What’s Next? The Impact of the 2012 Election Results on Pediatrics and Child Health Care Chair: Leona Cuttler The 2012 elections are an important watershed for pediatrics and child health care delivery. The elections’ results will influence the outcomes of health care reform, insurance and benefits, pediatric research–and will dictate future policies central to pediatrics. The 2013 Legislative Breakfast therefore focuses on the outcomes of the elections and their implications for pediatrics. It will provide a major post-election forum to discuss these issues with the pediatrics community. Moderated by Leona Cuttler, M.D. the first speaker (Mark Del Monte, J.D.) will lay out “Key Upcoming Policy Issues in Pediatrics and Child Health Care Delivery” including those related to practice, health delivery, research, and Congressional bills/Administration proposals under consideration. The second speaker (TBD) will address “What the Results of the 2012 Elections Mean for Pediatrics and Child Health Delivery: Translating Issues into the Real World of Politics”. Panel discussion with Q/A on issues and advocacy will follow. Mark Del Monte; Speaker to be Announced 7:30am–8:45am 3060A Neonatal Feeding Club: Olfactory Tutoring of Adaptive Behavior in Perinatal Life and Beyond Chair: Steven M. Barlow Olfaction is a well conserved sensory system in humans, although it has long been overlooked. Its function is particularly salient in early development, when organisms benefit of olfactory tutoring to realize their vital responses to the special challenges of the neonatal period. The developing brain is sensitive and reactive to odor stimuli, and these abilities reach back to the fetus that encodes odor stimuli. When the same stimuli are re-encountered postnatally they elicit adaptive orientation and oral behaviors. These perceptual abilities are further attuned in the context of the mothers’ body, breast, and milk, which work then both as sources of information and as reinforcers. Odor information afforded by the breast/milk prepare the infant to respond to non-milk foods, but also to promote stimulation in other sense modalities involved both in feeding and in social processes (recognition, attachment). Benoist Schaal Underwritten by KC BioMedix, Inc., Shawnee, KS 8:00am–10:00am 3100 Epigenetics: From Bench to Policy to Promote Early Childhood Health PAS Topic Symposium Chair: Peter C. van Dyck We will review the basic scientific concepts and methods being used in the field of epigenetics and relate these to current research on the early life origins of pediatric conditions. Examples will be drawn from recent research on preterm birth, allergy, and other chronic diseases, such as obesity. Finally, we will address ways that this research on early origins and gene- environment interactions can help shape future policies to promote positive child health outcomes.

Ferriero and Pierre M. Gressens We will review the novel role of mitochondria as regulators of immune responses. Mitochondrial initiation of neuronal cell death is critical in neonatal brain injury. However, apoptosis in inflammatory cells is also known to regulate immune responses. Recently a signaling complex localized in the outer mitochondrial membrane, the “MAVS signalosome”, has been discovered to regulate proinflammatory responses after viral infections. Phagocytized bacteria initiates, via TOLL-like receptors (TLRs), production of mitochondrial ROS and proinflammatory cytokines. In brain injury, mitochondrial DAMPS (damage-associated molecular patterns) are released that can further enhance proinflammatory responses via TLRs. On the other hand, to protect its energy supply, cells sense mitochondrial damage, leading to mitochondrial biogenesis, and anti-oxidant and anti- inflammatory responses. Thus, mitochondria are important for initiation of inflammatory and injury responses as well as resolution of inflammation. Philip West; Carina Mallard; Claude Piantadosi; Henrik E. G. Hagberg; Vadim S. Ten; 8:00am–10:00am 3115A Newborn Thyroid–Risks and Consequences PES Symposium Chairs: Delbert A. Fisher and Molly Regelmann Multiple recent reports have attested to the increased frequency of the diagnosis of congenital hypothyroidism on newborn screening programs. Whether they represent a true increase in hypothyroidism or only a widening of the spectrum of hypothyroidism with more mild and moderate cases being diagnosed is debatable. Thyroid function tests in ill and premature infants have also received some recent attention, with complete lack of guidelines for when tests should be measured, how they should be interpreted, and whether or not treatment is required. Consequently, the whole sphere of thyroid function in the newborn is becoming an increasingly challenging clinical conundrum facing pediatricians, neonatologists, intensivists, and pediatric endocrinologists.

Burgert and Patricia M. Vuguin Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an androgen-excess disorder that affects between 5% and 10% of all women. PCOS is increasingly being recognized in adolescent girls seeking treatment for signs and symptoms of hyperandrogenism. It is difficult to diagnose, and thus a high index of suspicion is necessary. Timely screening and treatment are essential because insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia are important components of the syndrome, increasing the risk for type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular disease.

Witchel Jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Endocrine Society, Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine and the Pediatric Academic Societies 8:00am–10:00am 3125 Small Molecule-Based Therapies for Inherited Diseases PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Hartmut M. Hanauske-Abel and Anne Pariser The recognition of inherited diseases is an integral part of pediatrics. Their diagnosis, by clinically discernible malformation, perinatal metabolic screening, and/or DNA sequencing, is a highly formalized, even legally prescribed process, whereas their therapy is evolving. The standard therapeutic strategies - among them gene repair, bone marrow transplant, and exogenous substitution of defective enzymes - have shown severe limitations, whether for genetic, biochemical, or fiscal reasons. In recent years, a return to classical pharmacology emerged with the life-saving use of small molecules that target precisely the inherited pathogenic event and suppress it. This approach rests on the atomic-level understanding of the actual biochemical mechanism causing each of these rare diseases. We will review the concepts behind ‘drugs compensate for defective genes’, detail clinically practiced examples, present emerging drug candidates, and assess the economic imperatives as well as the principal and practical limitations of this novel therapeutic strategy.

Bruder Stapleton At any given time, there are complex social, economic and technologic forces in play that interact to influence the delivery of pediatric health care. Simultaneously, elections and court decisions shape the political and public policy landscape. The ability to understand the impact of these forces in the context of children’s health determines the success of strategic planning and public policy. This topic symposium will generate a 10 year forecast for pediatric health care by exploring four key areas of change. A moderated question and answer session will follow the presentations.

IPHA Workshop Leader: Donald L. Batisky Nephrologists, cardiologists and other pediatric physicians need to understand the technology behind the measurement of blood pressure. There are many new evolving tools which have been proven to be useful in adults which are now available for use in children. This workshop will address areas of great clinical importance for the diagnosis and treatment of children, especially those with suspected hypertension. We will cover both the “how to” and “why to” aspects of this area. Attendees will leave the workshop with working knowledge of the newest developments in the field of blood pressure and additional measures of vascular disease. The ways to measure/estimate BP (BA): Review of intra-arterial, auscultatory, and oscillometric BP readings, explaining how each is different and how values should be interpreted. The message in the BP waveform (TC): Update physicians on newer technologies which are more powerful than BP values alone in the prediction of severity of vascular disease. These include pulse wave velocity, arterial stiffness, central BP, augmentation index, and cardiac ankle vascular index. The power of 24-hr ambulatory BP (EU): Recent advances in the knowledge base from 24-hr ABPM will be reviewed. There are still critical gaps in our evaluation of normal and hypertensive children. What matters most for accurate BP (DB): The factors which will be considered include the properties of the arm, cuff performance, tubing, patient position, and number of readings. The goal is to tailor the measurement process to maximize patient outcomes.

Carey 10:30am–12:30pm 3320 Adolescent Marijuana Use: Biology, Policy and Brief Intervention PAS Mini Course Chair: Patridcia C.F. Schram Cannabinoids are biologically active molecules that have a number of regulatory functions. Cannabinoids have both therapeutic potential as well as risk of significant side effects. Marijuana contains a large number of cannabinoids, which has led some individuals to promote use of marijuana as a “medication” outside of the typical regulatory process. In this mini course we will review cannabinoid biology, examine the effects of “medical marijuana” on adolescents, and demonstrate very brief, motivationally based interventions for marijuana use, practical for use in the general medical office.

Schram Jointly sponsored by the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine and the Pediatric Academic Societies 10:30am–12:30pm 3325 Community, Family, Health and Genetics: Risk Factors for Socio-emotional Development in Urban Children PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Kanwaljeet S. Anand and Frederick B. Palmer Socio-emotional (SE) development in early childhood affects school performance and extends to adult outcomes including employment success and family income, marriage/partner stability, and adult health. Pre and postnatal experiences guide this process through a complex interaction of environmental, genetic, social, cultural and community factors. This symposium will examine how exposures in utero and during early childhood are associated with SE development. Presentations will use urban based longitudinal studies to examine how mother’s functioning, neighborhood characteristics, chronic disease, in utero medication and genetics are associated with SE development in a sample of predominantly minority urban children through age 4. The study data to be presented is based on epidemiologically defined sampling, repeated assessments during prenatal, neonatal, and early infancy to build a life course approach for analyses. Assessments captured can help inform other large national studies currently under development. Frances A Tylavsky; Frederick B. Palmer; Alicia K. Smith; Kecia N.

DeMauro Increasing numbers of very low birth weight premature infants are receiving parenteral nutrition for prolonged periods. The major complication of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) in neonates is cholestatic jaundice leading to liver failure. Its pathogenesis and therefore therapy remain poorly defined. This session will address the clinical presentation of TPN induced neonatal choletasis. Pharmacolical and nutritional therapies will be discussed for prevention as well as treatment of cholestasis.

PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Charles J. Homer and David M. Keller The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) promotes a team-based, data-driven structure that allows medical practitioners to provide high-quality care focused on the needs of the child and family, linking family, community and subspecialty services. To drive change, many propose that payment be linked to measurement of fidelity to the model. Tying measurement of the model and its outcomes to policies around practice and reimbursement means that measurement is no longer an academic exercise, requiring collaboration between policy makers (payers) and health services researchers (measurers). This symposium will explore different ways to measure the pediatric medical home, and the implications of tying measurement to payment on transformational efforts in child health delivery. David M.

Hay Determining strategies to optimize neurological and cognitive development in extremely preterm infants remains a priority, with as many as 25% experiencing severe disability. Epidemiologic data from large observational cohorts and outcomes from clinical trials evaluating nutritional interventions demonstrate improved neurological development, including cognitive outcomes, among preterm infants who received enhanced nutrition support during and beyond their NICU stay. Accruing animal data have additionally highlighted the impact of nutrition on brain development. Despite these human and animal observations, however, the specific factors responsible for such improved neurological and cognitive outcomes have not been fully determined, individually or collectively quantified in their impact, or optimized at the bedside. Current research that is providing basic new information to address these relationships will be the focus of this topic symposium. William W. Hay; Josef Neu; Richard J. Schanler; Camilia R.

  • 46. Monday, May 6 Daily Programming research networks that have conducted high- quality rigorous research projects. Networks bring together multiple centers to conduct robust studies that answer important research questions. However, an ongoing challenge is to take these results, typically generated from five to twenty centers with the infrastructure provided by a research study, and disseminate them effectively throughout large networks and beyond, to truly change practice patterns of care for children. This session will bring together leaders of several important pediatric networks and federal funders to describe how this important public health problem may be solved. Peter S. Dayan; Christopher P.

Wilson Obesity is a well-recognized epidemic in developed countries. Secondary consequences of obesity include components of the metabolic syndrome: NASH, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance. Left untreated these metabolic dysfunctions can lead to cirrhosis and liver failure, coronary artery disease and strokes, and diabetes with its attendant complications. It is predicted that the current generation of children will be the first generation in the history of the United States have a shorter life span than their parents. It is recognized that not all obese individuals develop any or all of these metabolic derangements. This session will address the comorbidities of obesity and the significance of recognizing metabolic syndrome patients. Role of pharmacological therapy and bariatric surgery in addressing these comorbidities will be presented. Anupama Chawla; Joel E. Lavine; Thomas Harris Inge; Lee M. Kaplan Jointly sponsored by the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Pediatric Endocrine Society and the Pediatric Academic Societies 1:00pm–3:00pm 3475 Rare Diseases Growing Up: A Life-Course Perspective PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Elizabeth Goodman and Mary Beth Leonard In recent years there has been increasing interest in conceptualizing disease etiology within a life course framework. A life course approach to chronic disease epidemiology considers the contributions of physical and social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and later adult life. It includes studies of the biological and psychosocial pathways that operate across an individual’s life course, as well as across generations, to influence the development of chronic diseases. As children with rare congenital and chronic diseases are surviving well into adulthood, attention has shifted to the long-term complications of the disease process and its treatments in adulthood.

Mietus-Snyder and Eric Sherman Multiple studies have demonstrated that the atherosclerotic process begins in childhood and slowly progresses throughout the life span. There is no clear consensus about the definition of dyslipidemia in the pediatric population and the criteria for pharmacologic treatment. This symposium will explore the genetic causes of dyslipidemia and the difficulty in creating clear cholesterol guidelines in the pediatric population and will provide a framework for the pharmacologic management of abnormal lipids in children. Peter Kwiterovich; Stephen R. Daniels; Brian W. McCrindle 3:30pm–5:30pm 3575A From Kidney Development to Injury and Repair: The Role of Genes and Their Mutations ASPN Symposium Chairs: Jacqueline Ho and Douglas G. Matsell We have learned that many genes and molecular pathways are associated with kidney development. Recently, large-scale mapping of gene expression and localization in the developing mouse genitourinary system has helped us to better understand the functional roles of each gene product. Many urogenital anomalies, cystic diseases, podocyte diseases, basement membrane diseases, and tubular diseases are found to be related to genetic mutations. We have also learned that the pathology of renal injuries and diseases has much in common with developmental phenomena. In this symposium we will discuss several topics from kidney development to injury and repair that have their origins in abnormal gene expression. We hope that this topic will provide insights for future clinical applications.

Bhutta and Alvin Zipursky Increasingly, global maternal-child health is receiving the attention of paediatric researchers, clinicians and funding agencies with a keen interest in studying problems and impacting outcomes. Integral to bridging the two is the multilateral education necessary to create lasting, self-directed change in diverse global settings. This symposium will highlight a broad range of critical global child health issues through the lens of training for effective, locally sustainable clinical care and research around the globe. Bonnie Stevens; Bruce Dick; Stephen Scherer; Jane Ruth Aceng 3:30pm–5:30pm 3590A Pediatric Growth Hormone Treatment: Entering a New Era PES Symposium Chairs: Sara DiVall and Adda Grimberg Many children and adolescents turn to their physicians with concerns about growth. The consideration of growth hormone therapy is an individualized assessment of potential benefits and risks, and recent events have heralded a shift away from the prior era’s perception that more is simply better. Recent findings raise new questions about the long-term safety of growth hormone treatment, including the report of increased mortality in adults previously treated with growth hormone and the finding that GH insensitivity syndrome is protective against cancer and diabetes. In contrast, the potential for metabolic benefits has developed more quietly. All this has been occurring against the larger psychosocial and economic backdrop of patent expiry, increased insurance involvement in dictating growth hormone therapy, on-going cultural debate about the psychosocial significance of short stature, and closer scrutiny of expensive medications as health care costs rise.

Monday, May 6 Daily Programming 3:30pm–5:30pm 3595 Psychosocial Stress and Physiological Dysregulation: The Biological Embedding of Early Childhood Adversity PAS State of the Art Plenary Chair: Lee M. Pachter An important part of normal child development includes responding to stressful and challenging situations. However, excessive, uncontrollable and/or chronic stressful events—particularly ones not buffered by supportive adult caregivers— can have catastrophic effects on physical and mental health in childhood and throughout life. This type of stress, referred to as toxic stress, has been shown to heighten the risk of disease and impairment through an increase in allostatic load, or wear and tear that results in dysregulation of the body’s homeostatic systems (e.g., HPA, SAM, immune, inflammatory) as well as effects on the developing brain. This symposium brings together leaders in studying the effects of adversity and psychosocial stress on the developing child. After discussion of the concepts of allostatic load, brain plasticity and vulnerability, we will review recent research demonstrating the effects of psychosocial stress/adversity on dysregulation of the HPA system as well as epigenetic consequences.

Salerno Pediatric Nephrology has been an understaffed profession for many years. This results in many practitioners practicing in small groups in large academic institutions or in small groups or solo practitioners is a smaller setting. These staffing issues impact how we see patients, how we arrange coverage and how we live our lives. Despite some of these challenges, many hope to pursue research programs or clinical innovation despite some logistical challenges and limited resources.  This workshop will explore the challenges and joys and strategies of how to succeed in a small group setting.

Jansson The fussy baby commonly presents to medical providers caring for infants in the first months of life. More than one quarter of infants are diagnosed with colic, making it one of the most common reasons for visits to primary care practitioners. Prematurity and drug exposure also are challenging in terms of excess crying and sleep disorganization. Excessive crying often coincides with the establishment of the breastfeeding relationship, creating a complicated constellation of symptoms that are difficult for PCPs to treat. Treating these infants typically requires several outpatient referrals and medical detective work. This topic symposia will include expert panel of developmental and behavioral specialists, breastfeeding, drug exposure and infant mental health psychologists as well as home visitors for the fussy baby.

Severe genetic mutations are neonatal lethal because of failure to undergo a successful transition to air breathing. More subtle mutations and epigenetic and environmental factors may interfere with both branching morphogenesis of the airway and alveolarization. This is commonly seen in babies with CAM, BPD, etc, but is also now realized to underpin asthma and COPD in children as well as in adults. We will update the neonatal and pediatric community on the latest mechanistic ideas that may identify novel targets for small molecule as well as cell-based regenerative therapies in the lung.

DeMeo Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from the International Pediatric Research Foundation 8:00am–10:00am 4110 Fetal Compromise, Birth Asphyxia and Neuroprotection: How Knowledge of Pathophysiology Can Guide Management PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Lucky Jain and Steven P. Miller Improvements in intrapartum care with liberal use of fetal monitoring and interventions have resulted in a striking decline in stillbirths and birth asphyxia worldwide. However, tools to detect fetal compromise and imminent demise are limited, and often fraught with poor predictive values resulting in an unacceptably high number of early/emergent deliveries. Neonatal transition after birth is a continuum of the intrauterine state, with acute-on-chronic hypoxia often leading to irreversible brain damage. Early recognition of fetal distress and failed neonatal transition can guide management and have a significant impact on outcomes. This symposium brings together leading experts from the fields of maternal fetal medicine, neuropathology, neonatology, and neurology to offer a state of the art summary of these complex interactions with a comprehensive strategy for their diagnosis and management.

Vinci The recently revised requirements for Pediatric training require residency programs to provide each pediatric resident with a mentored curriculum consisting of six educational units within their three years of residency training. This structured but individualized experience will lead to a fundamental change in our residency programs and will allow for the development of curricular tracks or training pathways. With the introduction of this requirement educators will need to develop these specific training experiences in partnership with departmental goals and in consideration of workforce implications. This dynamic change in our educational structure will require innovation and collaboration with hospital leaders to understand the impact of this change and will be the focus of this Mini-Course.

The mechanisms associated with these conditions are poorly understood. This session will provide an overview of those conditions for which an infectious trigger is well characterized and those for which infectious tiggers have been associated but no further evidence exists. The following entities will be discussed: Guillain- Barre syndrome (GBS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), macrophage activation syndrome (MAS), and Lyme Disease. Claudia Vellozzi; Ben Z.

This symposium will first provide an overview of the neurocognitive impacts of CKD, with an update on recent findings from studies such as the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD) cohort study. As pediatric nephrologists commonly encounter psychiatric comorbidities in their patients, this symposium will next review what is known about the prevalence and causes of psychiatric disease among children with CKD, and the best tools and strategies for early detection and preliminary management. Finally, how neurocognitive and psychiatric problems may impact adherence in children with CKD will be described.

Goodstein and Scott D. Krugman Despite the success of the “Back to Sleep” campaign, sleep related deaths (SRD) continue to be the leading cause of post- neonatal infant mortality in the U.S. The latest AAP Task Force on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) statement focused on expanding the discussion to include asphyxia and suffocation deaths related to the environment reflecting the dramatic increase in the incidence of these deaths as reported by the CDC. This symposium will explore what is known about SIDS and other SRD including the neuropathology of the infant brainstem and anatomic and physiologic considerations of the newborn airway, respiratory system, and developmental status which especially place the newborn at risk for asphyxia. Epidemiologic evidence of the critical role of the sleep environment as it relates to SRD will be presented. Examples of programs that have provided effective education for cultural change to promote infant sleep safety will be highlighted. Bradley Thach; Robert A. Darnall; Carrie K.

Rodriguez The successful trial is defined as a study that demonstrated the effectiveness and resulted in label change(s) of a specific product intended for use in pediatrics. The negative pediatric study is defined as a study that failed to demonstrate effectiveness in the pediatric population. Since 1997, the U.S. Congress has enacted legislation to encourage conducting pediatric trials. Over 900 pediatric trials were conducted and 439 pediatric labeling changes were made from 2/1998 through 1/2012. In 80 of those labeling changes, safety and effectiveness were not established in pediatric patients for the indication studied. We reviewed both successful and negative pediatric studies with the goal to understand factors contributing to successful trials and identify the underlying reasons resulting in negative studies. We will provide an overview of the lessons learned from these trial reviews and discuss examples of successful and negative pediatric studies in this session. Hari Cheryl Sachs; Haihao Sun; Dianne M.

Kahn;Yaffa Rubinstein; Jeffrey Krischer; Charles Bailey Jointly sponsored by the CTSA Consortium Child Health Oversight Committee and the Pediatric Academic Societies 10:30am–12:30pm 4315 Stress in the Complex Causal Web of Preterm Birth PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Louis J. Muglia and David K. Stevenson Both preterm birth and stress are complex phenomena requiring further study in order to provide an objective assessment of how the two might interact. Stress has been defined and measured variably by investigators from disparate fields of science. Thus, it is not surprising that studies on the role of stress in preterm birth have produced results that are indeterminate. This symposium will assemble experts from across disciplines to summarize the state of the science and help develop a coherent pathway to study these complex phenomena.

There’s More Affecting GME Than Just Duty Hours PAS Hot Topic Chair: Cynthia L. Ferrell Pediatric graduate medical education is currently in a swirling sea of change. Duty hour changes, new program requirements, and milestones just to name a few. Much attention has been paid to education and service effects resulting from the 2011 duty hour and supervision changes. Unfortunately, many other areas have been somewhat neglected even though their effect on pediatric GME may be just as important as duty hours. This hot topic panel session will focus on the non-duty hour specific issues that are vitally important to address if pediatric GME is to remain strong and successful. An overview of the issues affecting GME will be provided. Panel speakers will approach three areas in depth and there will be “open-mike” time for participants to raise questions for discussion. This session’s goal is to stimulate the thinking of the attendees and perhaps provide new areas of attention for pediatric GME leaders. Cynthia Lynn Ferrell; Hilary M.

Hanevold and Ibrahim Shatat The brain is a target organ for the adverse effects of hypertension. While overt cerebrovascular disease is extremely uncommon among children with chronically elevated blood pressure, adult studies and emerging pediatric data suggest that measurable cerebrovascular changes and functional neurocognitive effects may indeed be present in children. Against a background of what is known about executive brain function and cognitive effects of hypertension among adults, this symposium will explore these issues among children. Emerging techniques to measure cerebrovascular flow among hypertensive children offers a potential marker of neurocognitive risk. Epidemiological studies have begun to address whether there is a relationship between hypertension and learning disabilities in children. Finally, white coat hypertension is frequently encountered in children; does it have

The Impact of the 2012 Election Results on Pediatrics and Child Health Care Chair: Leona Cuttler The 2012 elections are an important watershed for pediatrics and child health care delivery. The elections’ results will influence the outcomes of health care reform, insurance and benefits, pediatric research–and will dictate future policies central to pediatrics. The 2013 Legislative Breakfast therefore focuses on the outcomes of the elections and their implications for pediatrics. It will provide a major post-election forum to discuss these issues with the pediatrics community. Moderated by Leona Cuttler, M.D. the first speaker (Mark Del Monte, J.D.) will lay out “Key Upcoming Policy Issues in Pediatrics and Child Health Care Delivery” including those related to practice, health delivery, research, and Congressional bills/Administration proposals under consideration. The second speaker (TBD) will address “What the Results of the 2012 Elections Mean for Pediatrics and Child Health Delivery: Translating Issues into the Real World of Politics”. Panel discussion with Q/A on issues and advocacy will follow. Mark Del Monte; Speaker to be Announced 8:00am–10:00am 3135A March of Dimes Basil O’Connor Scholars Chairs: Margaret K.

Batisky Nephrologists, cardiologists and other pediatric physicians need to understand the technology behind the measurement of blood pressure. There are many new evolving tools which have been proven to be useful in adults which are now available for use in children. This workshop will address areas of great clinical importance for the diagnosis and treatment of children, especially those with suspected hypertension. We will cover both the “how to” and “why to” aspects of this area. Attendees will leave the workshop with working knowledge of the newest developments in the field of blood pressure and additional measures of vascular disease. The ways to measure/estimate BP (BA): Review of intra-arterial, auscultatory, and oscillometric BP readings, explaining how each is different and how values should be interpreted. The message in the BP waveform (TC): Update physicians on newer technologies which are more powerful than BP values alone in the prediction of severity of vascular disease. These include pulse wave velocity, arterial stiffness, central BP, augmentation index, and cardiac ankle vascular index. The power of 24-hr ambulatory BP (EU): Recent advances in the knowledge base from 24-hr ABPM will be reviewed. There are still critical gaps in our evaluation of normal and hypertensive children. What matters most for accurate BP (DB): The factors which will be considered include the properties of the arm, cuff performance, tubing, patient position, and number of readings. The goal is to tailor the measurement process to maximize patient outcomes.

With the conflicting responsibilities of clinical coverage, administrative work, teaching, our own research and family obligations, it can be challenging to keep up with the most important research findings outside of our own spheres. This workshop is intended to present the findings of the top advances in pediatric nephrology in 2012 and 2013. The goal is to have 2 papers each in the fields of Acute Kidney Injury, Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis and Transplantation presented by their authors. The topics/papers will be selected by a committee comprised of the chair and co- chair of the ASPN program committee and the workshop moderators.  10:15am–12:15pm 3300 SPR Presidential Plenary and Awards David A.

A life course approach to chronic disease epidemiology considers the contributions of physical and social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and later adult life. It includes studies of the biological and psychosocial pathways that operate across an individual’s life course, as well as across generations, to influence the development of chronic diseases. As children with rare congenital and chronic diseases are surviving well into adulthood, attention has shifted to the long-term complications of the disease and its treatments in adulthood.

Matsell We have learned that many genes and molecular pathways are associated with kidney development. Recently, large-scale mapping of gene expression and localization in the developing mouse genitourinary system has helped us to better understand the functional roles of each gene product. Many urogenital anomalies, cystic diseases, podocyte diseases, basement membrane diseases, and tubular diseases are found to be related to genetic mutations. We have also learned that the pathology of renal injuries and diseases has much in common with developmental phenomena. In this symposium we will discuss several topics from kidney development to injury and repair that have their origins in abnormal gene expression. We hope that this topic will provide insights for future clinical applications. Patricia Weng; Steven Potter; Friedhelm Hildebrandt; IkuyoYamaguchi 3:30pm–5:30pm 3674A Pediatric Nephrology in a Small Group Setting ASPN Workshop Leader: Ann E. Salerno Pediatric Nephrology has been an understaffed profession for many years. This results in many practitioners practicing in small groups in large academic institutions or in small groups or solo practitioners is a smaller setting. These staffing issues impact how we see patients, how we arrange coverage and how we live our lives. Despite some of these challenges, many hope to pursue research programs or clinical innovation despite some logistical challenges and limited resources.  This workshop will explore the challenges and joys and strategies of how to succeed in a small group setting.

Tuesday, May 7 8:00am–10:00am 4095A Advocacy in Pediatric Nephrology ASPN Workshop Leaders: Doug Silverstein and Michael Somers Pediatric nephrologists wear many hats including researcher, clinician, teacher, and advocate. Each of these roles is affected by changes in key public policies such as federal commitment to research efforts and grant funding, Medicare reimbursement and quality initiatives for ESRD care, and graduate medical education funding for new pediatric nephrology trainees. This session will review initiatives from the ASPN into the realm of public policy and introduce ways for nephrology physicians and researchers to advocate more effectively for their patients and profession. This workshop is scheduled for the final morning of the meeting, Tuesday May 7, followed by the opportunity to use your new skills by visiting your Congressional representatives and Senators on Capitol Hill that afternoon (RSVP for this portion required to kschubert@dc-crd.com by March 1, 2013).

This symposium will first provide an overview of the neurocognitive impacts of CKD, with an update on recent findings from studies such as the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD) cohort study. As pediatric nephrologists commonly encounter psychiatric comorbidities in their patients, this symposium will next review what is known about the prevalence and causes of psychiatric disease among children with CKD, and the best tools and strategies for early detection and preliminary management. Finally, how neurocognitive and psychiatric problems may impact adherence in children with CKD will be described.

Redwine The autonomic nervous system and its role in blood pressure regulation is not well understood. In this session, we will review the role of the autonomic nervous system in regulation of blood pressure. We will also explore the role of the autonomic nervous system in a variety of pediatric disorders, ranging from chronic kidney disease, to obesity, to diabetes and sleep apnea. The roles of genetic and racial factors will be explored as well. Michael Joyner; Gina-Marie Barletta; Elaine M. Urbina; Duanping Liao; Gregory A.

Saturday, May 4 10:30am–12:30pm 1332 New Developments in Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) PAS Hot Topic Chairs: Mark S. Brown and Howard C. Bauchner During the last decade, maternal prescription opiate use (e.g. addiction or treatment of chronic pain) has increased substantially. This has had profound effects on the pregnant woman and fetus, resulting in dramatically more infants developing neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Although the use of opiates is recommended for treatment of NAS, there have been no studies comparing the most common treatments in infants with NAS. Most importantly, longer term safety and efficacy of these medications has never been established and possible genetic factors contributing to the incidence and severity of NAS have not been studied. This symposium will examine the impact of opiates on the pregnant woman, fetus, and newborn with NAS.

The Impact of Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) on Child Health in the Present and Future PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: David M. Keller and Lisa Simpson Providing high-value health care requires practicing evidence-based medicine. Much of the evidence base, however, is built for adults. Meeting the health needs of children requires an investment in CER that focuses on the unique circumstances of children and adolescents. These include clinically important differences in epidemiology, demographics, developmental status and social dependence as well as methodological issues involving study design. This panel will review the recent history of child comparative effectiveness research, highlighting ways in which government, families and the practice community can collaborate to ensure that our investment in child comparative effectiveness research produces results that will improve the health of children.

Connor and Frederick J. Kaskel The Best Pharmaceutical for Children Act (BPCA) and Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) have generated 430 studies of products in children. However, many drugs used in pediatrics, and especially in neonates, still do not have adequate pharmacokinetic, dosing, safety and/or efficacy information to support their use and provide appropriate labeling information. Clinical and Translational Science Awards are designed to enhance the development of therapies to improve child health, but many investigators do not understand the essential global regulatory processes involved in adequately studying drugs for use with common or rare disorders. This session will review global investigational new drug processes as well as study design issues such as selection of appropriate endpoints, use of surrogates and/or biomarkers, ethical issues when using placebo controls, and extrapolation of adult data. The session will conclude with a presentation on how NIH and FDA prioritize drugs for study by many NIH sponsored programs. Jonathan M. Davis; Robert “Skip” Nelson; Dianne M.

The Impact of the 2012 Election Results on Pediatrics and Child Health Care Chair: Leona Cuttler The 2012 elections are an important watershed for pediatrics and child health care delivery. The elections’ results will influence the outcomes of health care reform, insurance and benefits, pediatric research–and will dictate future policies central to pediatrics. The 2013 Legislative Breakfast therefore focuses on the outcomes of the elections and their implications for pediatrics. It will provide a major post-election forum to discuss these issues with the pediatrics community. Moderated by Leona Cuttler, M.D. the first speaker (Mark Del Monte, J.D.) will lay out “Key Upcoming Policy Issues in Pediatrics and Child Health Care Delivery” including those related to practice, health delivery, research, and Congressional bills/Administration proposals under consideration.

Landrigan and Raj Srivastava This State-of-the-Art Plenary will describe the experiences from several large pediatric research networks that have conducted high-quality rigorous research projects. Networks bring together multiple centers to conduct robust studies that answer important research questions. However, an ongoing challenge is to take these results, typically generated from five to twenty centers with the infrastructure provided by a research study, and disseminate them effectively throughout large networks and beyond, to truly change practice patterns of care for children. This session will bring together leaders of several important pediatric networks and federal funders to describe how this important public health problem may be solved. Peter S. Dayan; Christopher P.

Homer Jointly sponsored by the CTSA Consortium Child Health Oversight Committee and the Pediatric Academic Societies 1:00pm–3:00pm 3475 Rare Diseases Growing Up: A Life-Course Perspective PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Elizabeth Goodman and Mary Beth Leonard In recent years there has been increasing interest in conceptualizing disease etiology within a life course framework. A life course approach to chronic disease epidemiology considers the contributions of physical and social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and later adult life. It includes studies of the biological and psychosocial pathways that operate across an individual’s life course, as well as across generations, to influence the development of chronic diseases. As children with rare congenital and chronic diseases are surviving well into adulthood, attention has shifted to the long-term complications of the disease process and its treatments in adulthood.

  • 61. International Pediatric Hypertension Association May 4 - May 7, 2013 Walter E. Washington Convention Center Washington, DC About the International Pediatric Hypertension Association Hypertension, which is estimated to affect more than 50 million Americans and is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, end-stage renal disease and cerebrovascular accidents, commonly has its origin in childhood. Although hypertension and associated end-organ damage occur more commonly in adults, hypertension and its resultant complications have far earlier antecedents. The International Pediatric Hypertension Association (IPHA) is a multispecialty, multidisciplinary group of health care providers and scientists committed to delineating the origins and manifestations of hypertension in children and improving the care of children and young adults affected by this condition. Toward that end, IPHA has established a three-fold mission to: – foster and maintain an open forum among pediatric hypertension healthcare professionals worldwide; – participate in research initiatives promoting improved treatment of the hypertensive patient; – educate healthcare professionals and the lay public about the ramifications of childhood hypertension. Please join us in Washington, where the International Pediatric Hypertension Association (IPHA) and the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) will, for the eighth year, host aligned meetings. Joint symposia and original science will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The IPHA general meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 6 from 6:00- 7:00pm.

Hanevold and Ibrahim Shatat The brain is a target organ for the adverse effects of hypertension. While overt cerebrovascular disease is extremely uncommon among children with chronically elevated blood pressure, adult studies and emerging pediatric data suggest that measurable cerebrovascular changes and functional neurocognitive effects may indeed be present in children. Against a background of what is known about executive brain function and cognitive effects of hypertension among adults, this symposium will explore these issues among children. Emerging techniques to measure cerebrovascular flow among hypertensive children offers a potential marker of neurocognitive risk. Epidemiological studies have begun to address whether there is a relationship between hypertension and learning disabilities in children. Finally, white coat hypertension is frequently encountered in children; does it have important medical implications, and does its presumed relationship to anxiety signify any neurocognitive or psychological link?

Batisky Nephrologists, cardiologists and other pediatric physicians need to understand the technology behind the measurement of blood pressure. There are many new evolving tools which have been proven to be useful in adults which are now available for use in children. This workshop will address areas of great clinical importance for the diagnosis and treatment of children, especially those with suspected hypertension. We will cover both the “how to” and “why to” aspects of this area. Attendees will leave the workshop with working knowledge of the newest developments in the field of blood pressure and additional measures of vascular disease. The ways to measure/estimate BP (BA): Review of intra-arterial, auscultatory, and oscillometric BP readings, explaining how each is different and how values should be interpreted. The message in the BP waveform (TC): Update physicians on newer technologies which are more powerful than BP values alone in the prediction of severity of vascular disease. These include pulse wave velocity, arterial stiffness, central BP, augmentation index, and cardiac ankle vascular index. The power of 24-hr ambulatory BP (EU): Recent advances in the knowledge base from 24-hr ABPM will be reviewed. There are still critical gaps in our evaluation of normal and hypertensive children. What matters most for accurate BP (DB): The factors which will be considered include the properties of the arm, cuff performance, tubing, patient position, and number of readings. The goal is to tailor the measurement process to maximize patient outcomes.

A decade later, formal transition of care programs are still lacking in many endocrine practices, compromising the continued care of young adults with diabetes after they leave the pediatric practice. This workshop is designed to acquaint the attendee with an understanding of the importance of transition of care for individuals with diabetes, the barriers to providing optimal transition of care, and how to overcome them. A model of a successful transition of care program will be shared so that practitioners can gain insight into how they can implement their own program. 8:00am–11:10am 1190A PES Plenary Session I Chair: Steven D.

  • 67. health research has deepened our understanding of the unique susceptibility of children to environmental stressors and raised consciousness of these contributions as an important facet of pediatric health. Environmental stressors to child health encompass not only environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals, but also include a broader range of factors such as the built environment, global warming and weather-related natural disasters (flooding), environmental accidents such as the Gulf oil spill, second-hand smoke, etc. Scientific insights on health consequences of environmental stressors have been translated to public health policy and their economic burden and impact on society are becoming increasingly recognized. This symposium will discuss the pediatric health implications of environmental stressors in a developmental context and review public health policy and economic implications of these findings.

  • 68. 1:00pm–3:00pm 2650 The Critical Importance of Glucose in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Brandon Nathan and Jamie Wood Hyperglycemia in non-diabetic, critically ill patients is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Much controversy surrounds treatment thresholds and outcomes in hyperglycemic, critically ill adult patients. Parallel data in children are starting to emerge, in particular among cardiothoracic surgery patients, raising important treatment considerations in this and other pediatric populations. This symposium will explore the relationship between hyperglycemia and illness severity, the potential harmful effects associated with hypoglycemia in the ICU, and considerations for treatment of hyperglycemic pediatric patients.

Agus Jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Endocrine Society and the Pediatric Academic Societies 1:00pm–3:00pm 2655 The Gland - Brain Connection: Hormones, Cognition, and Behavior PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Philippe F. Backeljauw and Todd Nebesio Hormones have wide-ranging effects on the brain, both in utero and after birth. In the past decade, many investigators have demonstrated these effects in both animal models and humans. Endocrine abnormalities during early life may cause global neurologic changes, but may also affect specific brain functions leading to more subtle alterations. Androgens are known to affect gender role behavior but also have cognitive effects. Diabetes and hypoglycemia alter brain structure and function. IGF-1 influences multiple aspects of brain development. Hypothyroidism is one of the most common congenital anomalies, and although early treatment has largely eradicated resulting severe brain injury, subtle defects remain and are exacerbated by delayed or insufficient treatment.

Lee and Heino F.L. Meyer-Bahlburg The diagnosis and management of children and adolescents with disorders of sexual development is challenging. The purpose of this symposium is to disseminate new knowledge regarding diagnosis, medical and surgical management, and psychological outcomes in children with DSD. Optimal care of these individuals involves a collaborative effort of neonatologists, geneticists, endocrinologists, surgeons and psychologists. Heino F.L. Meyer-Bahlburg; Eric J. Vilain; Amy Wisniewski; Justine Marut Schober Jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Endocrine Society and the Pediatric Academic Societies 3:30pm–5:30pm 2800A Turner Syndrome: Update and Controversial Issues PES Symposium Chairs: Vaneeta Bamba and Carolyn A. Bondy Turner Syndrome is one of the most common sex chromosomal abnormalities. Amniocentesis or characteristic lymphedema at birth may lead to early diagnosis. Unfortunately, physical features of Turner syndrome are not always obvious, leading to diagnosis during the adolescent or even reproductive years. Undiagnosed, there is a risk of sudden death due to aortic dilation/ abnormalities as well as hypertension, renal dysfunction and ovarian failure. Most of these individuals have normal cognition, but deficits in social performance, while not life-threatening, also prove quite challenging. This symposium will analyze some of the clinically relevant and controversial topics regarding Turner Syndrome. David E. Sandberg; G. Michael Silberbach; Nelly Mauras; Richard H. Reindollar 3:30pm–5:30pm 2805 What Is Healthy Infant Growth? Risks, Benefits, and Tradeoffs of Rapid Infant Weight Gain PAS Topic Symposium Chairs: Mandy Brown Belfort and Elsie Taveras Rapid infant weight gain may have benefits, such as to neurodevelopment, but may also lead to obesity and other adverse outcomes. The rapid rise in obesity, even among the very young, suggests that prevention must begin early in life. Moderating excess infant weight gain may contribute to obesity prevention, but adverse consequences of such a strategy must also be considered for different populations of infants. This symposium will update participants on recent research regarding the risks and benefits of rapid infant weight gain, particularly with respect to later obesity and neurodevelopment. Speakers will contrast outcomes of rapid weight gain for preterm, growth restricted, and full term newborns; describe an ongoing intervention to limit excess infant weight gain; and outline a framework for promoting healthy growth for both vulnerable and healthy populations of infants.

Wilson Over the last decade, there has been a dramatic increase in the technology used to monitor blood sugar and administer insulin. This session will cover the clinical application of newer options for the care of children with diabetes. 7:00am–8:00am 3045A Optimizing the Revenue Cycle PES Practice Workshop Leaders: Mark W. Parker and Paul S. Thornton Consumer driven health plans have shifted a larger portion of the financial burden to the patient. Failure to collect the patient portion of the bill at the point of service results in the money having to be collected later, an unnecessarily expensive and time consuming step. Central billing offices may be helpful, but they generally have higher priorities than Pediatric Endocrinology practices, because our balances are significantly less than other specialties. The physicians who attend this workshop will leave with a better understanding of how the revenue cycle works and specifically what questions to ask their office managers to ensure that steps are being followed. From the standpoint of the academic center, revenue is just as important, and the workshop will also present a novel way of illustrating this to administrators whose solution for poor revenue flow is simply to insist that clinicians see more patients. 7:00am–8:00am 3050A The Public Policy Council 2013 Legislative Breakfast: What’s Next? The Impact of the 2012 Election Results on Pediatrics and Child Health Care Chair: Leona Cuttler The 2012 elections are an important watershed for pediatrics and child health care delivery. The elections’ results will influence the outcomes of health care reform, insurance and benefits, pediatric research–and will dictate future policies central to pediatrics. The 2013 Legislative Breakfast therefore focuses on the outcomes of the elections and their implications for pediatrics. It will provide a major post-election forum to discuss these issues with the pediatrics community. Moderated by Leona Cuttler, M.D. the first speaker (Mark Del Monte, J.D.) will lay out “Key Upcoming Policy Issues in Pediatrics and Child Health Care Delivery” including those related to practice, health delivery, research, and Congressional bills/Administration proposals under consideration. The second speaker (TBD) will address “What the Results of the 2012 Elections Mean for Pediatrics and Child Health Delivery: Translating Issues into the Real World of Politics”. Panel discussion with Q/A on issues and advocacy will follow. Mark Del Monte 8:00am–10:00am 3100 Epigenetics: From Bench to Policy to Promote Early Childhood Health PAS Topic Symposium Chair: Peter C. van Dyck We will review the basic scientific concepts and methods being used in the field of epigenetics and relate these to current research on the early life origins of pediatric conditions. Examples will be drawn from recent research on preterm birth, allergy, and other chronic diseases, such as obesity. Finally, we will address ways that this research on early origins and gene- environment interactions can help shape future policies to promote positive child health outcomes. Peter C. van Dyck;Winnie Wan-yee Tang; Xiaobin Wang; Bernard Guyer 8:00am–10:00am 3115A Newborn Thyroid–Risks and Consequences PES Symposium Chairs: Delbert A. Fisher and Molly Regelmann Multiple recent reports have attested to the increased frequency of the diagnosis of congenital hypothyroidism on newborn screening programs. Whether they represent a true increase in hypothyroidism or only a widening of the spectrum of hypothyroidism with more mild and moderate cases being diagnosed is debatable. Thyroid function tests in ill and premature infants have also received some recent attention, with complete lack of guidelines for when tests should be measured, how they should be interpreted, and whether or not treatment is required. Consequently, the whole sphere of thyroid function in the newborn is becoming an increasingly challenging clinical conundrum facing pediatricians, neonatologists, intensivists, and pediatric endocrinologists.

Burgert and Patricia M. Vuguin Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an androgen-excess disorder that affects between 5% and 10% of all women. PCOS is increasingly being recognized in adolescent girls seeking treatment for signs and symptoms of hyperandrogenism. It is difficult to diagnose, and thus a high index of suspicion is necessary. Timely screening and treatment are essential because insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia are important components of the syndrome, increasing the risk for type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular disease.

Wilson Obesity is a well-recognized epidemic in developed countries. Secondary consequences of obesity include components of the metabolic syndrome: NASH, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance. Left untreated these metabolic dysfunctions can lead to cirrhosis and liver failure, coronary artery disease and strokes, and diabetes with its attendant complications. It is predicted that the current generation of children will be the first generation in the history of the United States have a shorter life span than their parents. It is recognized that not all obese individuals develop any or all of these metabolic derangements. This session will address the comorbidities of obesity and the significance of recognizing metabolic syndrome patients. Role of pharmacological therapy and bariatric surgery in addressing these comorbidities will be presented. Anupama Chawla; Joel E. Lavine; Thomas Harris Inge; Lee M.

A life course approach to chronic disease epidemiology considers the contributions of physical and social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and later adult life. It includes studies of the biological and psychosocial pathways that operate across an individual’s life course, as well as across generations, to influence the development of chronic diseases. As children with rare congenital and chronic diseases are surviving well into adulthood, attention has shifted to the long-term complications of the disease and its treatments in adulthood.

Kramer and Joern-Hendrik Weitkamp Chorioamnionitis is the most significant source of prenatal inflammation and preterm delivery. Prematurity and prenatal inflammation are known risk factors for neonatal brain damage, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, altered intestinal vascular and epithelial development, and disrupted immune regulation. Fetal inflammatory responses cause long-lasting changes in gene expression and have been linked with cerebral paresis, autism and other possible lifelong adverse outcomes of prematurity. In this topic symposium experts in the field will review the multiorgan changes associated with chorioamnionitis and discuss novel approaches to interrupt damaging pathways and therefore significantly improve outcomes of prematurity.

Spearman It is estimated that 350,000 infants continue to acquire HIV infection annually, despite the efficacy of interventions to prevent mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. Thus, there remains a critical need for both improvement of global implementation of existing interventions and development of new interventions, including a maternal and/or infant vaccine to prevent MTCT. In this symposium, we will review natural protection against perinatal transmission of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), as well as examine recent findings regarding the role of HIV-specific adaptive and innate immune responses in protection of infants against HIV acquisition via breastfeeding and the ability to elicit these responses via infant or maternal vaccination. We will review the success of antiretroviral regimens for prevention of MTCT, the current World Health Organization MTCT prophylaxis recommendations, and the status of maternal/infant HIV immunization strategies to prevent MTCT of HIV.

  • 74. 2:45pm–4:45pm 1630A Should Routine Meningococcal Immunization of Infants Be Implemented? PIDS Symposium Chairs: Dan M. Granoff and Stanley A. Plotkin The only natural habitat for meningococci is humans. Genetic and host factors, as well as age, contribute to vastly different risks of developing invasive meningococcal disease upon exposure to the organism. Novel vaccines offer the prospect of protecting all age groups, including infants, against meningococci (including serogroup B strains). The incidence of meningococcal disease, however, has declined by over 80% in the U.S, and it is unlikely that routine immunization of infants will be recommended because of limited cost-effectiveness. This symposium will review recent data on the safety and immunogenicity of conjugate and protein-based vaccines for prevention of disease in infants, as well as the regulatory challenges for licensing protein-based vaccines for prevention of meningococcal disease. Finally, the merits of routine use of meningococcal vaccines in infants in an era of declining disease incidence and heightened awareness of health care costs will be debated. Dan M.

Connor and Frederick J. Kaskel The Best Pharmaceutical for Children Act (BPCA) and Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) have generated 430 studies of products in children. However, many drugs used in pediatrics, and especially in neonates, still do not have adequate pharmacokinetic, dosing, safety and/or efficacy information to support their use and provide appropriate labeling information. Clinical and Translational Science Awards are designed to enhance the development of therapies to improve child health, but many investigators do not understand the essential global regulatory processes involved in adequately studying drugs for use with common or rare disorders. This session will review global investigational new drug processes as well as study design issues such as selection of appropriate endpoints, use of surrogates and/or biomarkers, ethical issues when using placebo controls, and extrapolation of adult data. The session will conclude with a presentation on how NIH and FDA prioritize drugs for study by many NIH-sponsored programs. Jonathan M. Davis; Robert “Skip” Nelson; Dianne M.

  • 75. 8:00am–10:00am 2115 The Hygiene Hypothesis: An Update PAS State of the Art Plenary Chairs: Camilia R. Martin and Josef Neu The microbes populating the human intestine are an important determinant of health and disease, but man-made environmental changes are completely altering our association with the microbial world. The genes constituting these microbes (the “microbiome”) is dynamically altered over time and with specific environmental perturbations (e.g. changes in diet, medications, agricultural practices, and probiotic administration). As a result, the microbiome can evolve within individuals and between populations differentially influencing health outcomes over time. It is critical to understand these dynamics to effectively evaluate therapeutic strategies aimed at altering health outcomes by altering the microbiota.

Sanchez Respiratory viral infections represent the leading cause of hospitalization among infants and children worldwide. The introduction of molecular testing has improved significantly their specific diagnosis, and it has contributed to a better understanding of their epidemiology and pathogenesis. Issues surrounding diagnosis remain, and controversy exits regarding who to test and under what circumstances. In addition, the burden of disease among special populations such as immunocompromised hosts and infants in the neonatal intensive care unit has been under-recognized. This symposium will focus on currently available diagnostic methodologies for respiratory viral infections, pathogenesis of these infections, and patient outcomes. Gregory A.

Rodriguez The successful trial is defined as a study that demonstrated the effectiveness and resulted in label change(s) of a specific product intended for use in pediatrics. The negative pediatric study is defined as a study that failed to demonstrate effectiveness in the pediatric population. Since 1997, the U.S. Congress has enacted legislation to encourage conducting pediatric trials. Over 900 pediatric trials were conducted and 439 pediatric labeling changes were made from 2/1998 through 1/2012. In 80 of those labeling changes, safety and effectiveness were not established in pediatric patients for the indication studied. We reviewed both successful and negative pediatric studies with the goal to understand factors contributing to successful trials and identify the underlying reasons resulting in negative studies. We will provide an overview of the lessons learned from these trial reviews and discuss examples of successful and negative pediatric studies in this session. Hari Cheryl Sachs; Haihao Sun; Dianne M.

Recently, National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare and Quality (NICHQ), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is leading a nationwide effort “Best Fed Beginnings” to help hospitals improve maternity care and increase the number of Baby-Friendly hospitals in the United States. Hospitals have been recruited from across the country to participate in a 2 year learning collaborative to make system-level changes to maternity care practices in pursuit of Baby-Friendly designation. Hospital interventions are a strong focus nationally and internationally yet other evidence-based interventions in the immediate postpartum are crucial to increase breastfeeding exclusivity and duration rates.

Kaufman Many controversies remain for both EOS and LOS.. For EOS it is the evaluation of asymptomatic infants term infants with risk factors for sepsis. For LOS, all infections have significant effects on the brain and its development, including CoNS. Both of these issues are paramount in that they also represent the most common situations for EOS and LOS respectively. Recently the COIN published guidelines in direct conflict with the CDC 2010 statement regarding management of the asymptomatic term infant with risk factors. For LOS, CoNS remains the most common infection and is still treated in symptomatic patients whether only one or 2 blood cultures are positive. Additionally, CLABSIs require 2 or more positive blood cultures for CoNS. In this session we will explore the evidence and where it points us to for clinical practice and further research.

Barlow Olfaction is a well conserved sensory system in humans, although it has long been overlooked. Its function is particularly salient in early development, when organisms benefit of olfactory tutoring to realize their vital responses to the special challenges of the neonatal period. The developing brain is sensitive and reactive to odor stimuli, and these abilities reach back to the fetus that encodes odor stimuli. When the same stimuli are re-encountered postnatally they elicit adaptive orientation and oral behaviors. These perceptual abilities are further attuned in the context of the mothers’ body, breast, and milk, which work then both as sources of information and as reinforcers. Odor information afforded by the breast/milk prepare the infant to respond to non-milk foods, but also to promote stimulation in other sense modalities involved both in feeding and in social processes (recognition, attachment).
