Show Girl †No 07

Conclusions: Serum leucine and isoleucine were associated with future serum triglyceride levels in girls during pubertal growth and predicted hypertriglyceridemia in early adulthood. Therefore, these amino acid indices may serve as biomarkers to identify individuals at high risk for developing hypertriglyceridemia and cardiovascular disease later in life. Further studies are needed to elucidate the role these amino acids play in the lipid metabolism.

Show Girl – No 07

Although plans for the statue had not been finalized, Bartholdi moved forward with fabrication of the right arm, bearing the torch, and the head. Work began at the Gaget, Gauthier & Co. workshop.[45] In May 1876, Bartholdi traveled to the United States as a member of a French delegation to the Centennial Exhibition,[46] and arranged for a huge painting of the statue to be shown in New York as part of the Centennial festivities.[47] The arm did not arrive in Philadelphia until August; because of its late arrival, it was not listed in the exhibition catalogue, and while some reports correctly identified the work, others called it the "Colossal Arm" or "Bartholdi Electric Light". The exhibition grounds contained a number of monumental artworks to compete for fairgoers' interest, including an outsized fountain designed by Bartholdi.[48] Nevertheless, the arm proved popular in the exhibition's waning days, and visitors would climb up to the balcony of the torch to view the fairgrounds.[49] After the exhibition closed, the arm was transported to New York, where it remained on display in Madison Square Park for several years before it was returned to France to join the rest of the statue.[49]

No other severe adverse events were reported. In all reports, there was no clear evidence of spontaneous abortion, fetal malformation, or preterm delivery caused by laser therapy in pregnancy. Another study showed that the performance of laser therapy in pregnancy does not have identifiable adverse effects on the fetus.42s

One study described administration of trichloroacetic acid in combination with laser therapy in pregnant women.20 Although 97% of the pregnant women showed clearance, severe adverse effects attributable to this treatment combination included PROM (35 weeks of gestation) at 4 days after treatment in 1 of 32 women and acute pyelonephritis within 24 hours of treatment in 1 woman. However, whether these adverse effects were caused by trichloroacetic acid is unclear.20

No prospective studies to date have examined the gestational age at which treatment should be used to ensure therapeutic efficacy and safety. Therefore, there is no consensus on the optimal gestational age for treatment. Previous reports have suggested that the preservation of normal anatomy, hemostasis, and patient comfort be properly assessed to determine when to treat.21 Ferenczy16 and Widschwendter et al.25 reported that an earlier gestational age at the time of laser therapy was associated with a higher recurrence rate in pregnancy. Therefore, Ferenczy16 proposed reserving laser therapy until the third trimester to minimize recurrence. Exactly why the recurrence rate gradually decreases in parallel with the increase in gestational age is unknown. However, the recurrence in pregnancy is generally thought to be associated with a relative decrease in cell-mediated immunity and maternal immunocompetence. Immune dysfunction in pregnancy may be associated with this process. These cell systems are involved in the cytotoxic immune response and are thought to be related to changes in estrogen and chorionic gonadotropin. These hormones are elevated in the first and second trimesters and have been shown to decrease the activity of natural killer cells and suppressor T cells. Thus, patients may be prone to relapse because of immune dysfunction.16

The first trimester is important for organogenesis, and therapy in this period may increase the risk of spontaneous abortion. Therapy in the third trimester may also increase the risk of preterm delivery.42s,47s Laser therapy is recommended for the second or early third trimester to avoid spontaneous abortion or preterm delivery, and the European Society for Laser Dermatology has also limited laser therapy to the third trimester once the fetus is fully developed.42s,51s However, none of the reports showed an increase in the prevalence of maternal or neonatal adverse effects with any treatment in the first, second, or third trimester. In addition, it seems that treatment is performed in any trimester in clinical practice.

To assess its value in a pediatric population, the researchers reviewed the electronic medical records of 82 boys whose mean age was 13 and 65 girls whose mean age was 14. Mean BMI was 33.3 for the boys and 34.3 for the girls.

Prehypertension, defined as blood pressure between the 90th and 95th percentiles, was present in 13% overall and in 7% of boys and 20% of girls. Actual hypertension, which was blood pressure above the 95th percentile, was present in 23%, and in 20% of boys and 26% of girls.

"Adolescent bariatric surgery remains controversial despite studies showing its safety and efficacy. Many feel that medical weight management is more appropriate for this population," observed Avraham Schlager, MD, of Emory University in Atlanta, and colleagues. 041b061a72
