The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of a community-based health education program, called Familia Nawiri, in reducing the risk of diarrhea and respiratory infect...

Background. Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition that disproportionately affects children and is associated with reduced quality of life. Zinc deficiency may contribute to the pathogenesis of AD because zinc plays a role in epidermal barrier integrity and the immune system. Systematic review evidence suggests that low zinc is associated with AD, but limitations of included studies support further investigation. Objectives. To investigate hair zinc concentrations...

To investigate the impact of local therapies on high-risk neuroblastoma (HR-NB) outcomes in South Africa. Data from 295 patients with HR-NB from nine pediatric oncology units between 2000 and 2014 were analysed. All patients received chemotherapy. Five-year overall (OS) and event free survival (EFS) were determined for patients who had received local therapy, either surgery or radiotherapy or both. Surgery was performed in only 35.9% (n = 106/295) patients. Surgical excision was done for 34.8% (...

Background. In South Africa (SA), healthy term newborns are usually discharged ˂72 hours after delivery. Discharged babies remain at risk for severe hyperbilirubinaemia if it is not identified early. Hyperbilirubinaemia is an important cause of readmission, and also leads to neonatal mortality and morbidity. Use of transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) screening before hospital discharge has been controversial. Objectives. To test the clinical benefits of TcB screening of healthy newborns before discha...
