Abstract Traditional retinal microvascular parameters (smaller arteriolar and greater venular caliber) are associated with cardiovascular risk factors, pre-clinical vascular phenotypes and clinical cardiovascular events in adults. Although novel retinal microvascular geometric parameters showed analogous associations in adults, less is known whether these parameters are associated with cardiovascular health from childhood. In a population-based cross-sectional study in children (n = 1126, mean a...

Abstract Objective A translational trial evaluated the effectiveness of screening for inhibited childhood temperament, followed by a preventive parenting program -Cool Little Kids. This study determined the cost-effectiveness from societal and health sector perspectives using trial data. Method Resources to deliver the screening and parenting sessions were determined from study records. Parents completed a questionnaire reporting resources used at one-year follow-up. Standard Australian unit cos...

Importance Microvascular phenotypes, which can be assessed using retinal imaging, may be informative about the life course pathogenesis of hearing loss. Objective To investigate whether differences in retinal vessel caliber (specifically wider venules and narrower arterioles) are associated with hearing threshold and hearing loss in mid-childhood and midlife. Design, Setting, and Participants A population-based cross-sectional study (Child Health CheckPoint) was nested within the Longitudinal St...

Background and objective As caesarean delivery and childhood allergy continue to rise, their inter-relationships may change. We examined whether caesarean delivery predicts allergic disease and impaired lung function in two contemporary harmonised population-based cohorts. Methods Parent-reported asthma and eczema data were drawn from two prospective Australian infant cohorts, HealthNuts (n=5276, born 2006–2010) and the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC, n=5107, born 2003–2004) at ...

We examined how combinations of clinical indicators at various ages predict overweight/obesity development, as well as resolution, by 10–11 and 14–15 years of age. Data were derived from Birth (N = 3469) and Kinder (N = 3276) cohorts of the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children, followed from ages 2–3 and 4–5 years, respectively. Every two years, 25 potential obesity-relevant clinical indicators were quantified. Overweight/obesity was defined using International Obesity Taskforce cutpoints a...

Congenital hearing impairment (HI) is the most common sensory impairment and can be isolated or part of a syndrome. Diagnosis through newborn hearing screening and management through early intervention, hearing aids and cochlear implantation is well established in the Australian setting; however understanding the genetic basis of congenital HI has been missing. This population-derived cohort comprised infants with moderate-profound bilateral HI born in the 2016–2017 calendar years, detected thro...

Objective: Telomere length is associated with poorer lung health in older adults, possibly from cumulative risk factor exposure, but data are lacking in pediatric and population-based cohorts. We examined associations of telomere length with lung function in children and mid-life adults.Methods: Data were drawn from a population-based cross-sectional study of 11 to 12 year-olds and mid-life adults. Lung function was assessed by spirometric FEV1, FVC, FEV1 /FVC ratio, and MMEF25-75. Telomere leng...

Background The Paediatric Quality of Life InventoryTM 4.0 Generic Core Scales (PedsQL) is a non-preference based instrument for assessing health related quality of life (HRQoL) in children. Recent papers presented algorithms of parental proxy and short-form versions of the PedsQL onto the validated preference-based Child Health Utility 9D (CHU9D) instrument, to enable conversion of PedsQL scores to quality adjusted life years for use in economic evaluation. However, further research was needed t...
