an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles, published in 2020–2022, focused on pediatric endocrinology! Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

In Journal of the Endocrine Society, Al Khalifah and colleagues provide a meta-analysis examining the efficacy of common treatments for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in adolescents, finding clear differences between them. Andrisse et al. examine racial and ethnic differences in PCOS-related metabolic disease in adolescents. Bleil and associates provide data indicating that distinct patterns of early life weight gain in girls predict differential risk for early onset of puberty.

In Endocrinology, Shioda et al. shed light on basic mechanisms of sexual development with a report that both somatic and germline cell populations in chicken gonads of male karyotype, feminized with estrogen, maintain significant transcriptomic and epigenetic memories of genetic sex. Al-Yasari and associates find that in female rats, preconception alcohol exposures alter glucose homeostasis in offspring by inducing proopiomelanocortin neuronal functional abnormalities. Schoeller and colleagues report that in mice, loss of the clock gene Bmal1 causes disruptions throughout the growth hormone axis, and the authors distinguish between growth hormone pulse-driven and circadian-driven effects on hepatic gene expression.

In JCEM, Ward and associates report on the high incidence of vertebral fractures in children treated with glucocorticoids for rheumatic disorders, some causing permanent impairment. Prahalad et al. report favorable results from a technology-enabled, team-based approach to education of youth with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes mellitus. Ramírez-Vélez et al. report that a 6-month exercise program for overweight/obese adolescents can significantly change levels of circulating markers of inflammation.

In Endocrine Reviews, Padmanabhan and colleagues assess the multiple serious effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals during pregnancy, many of which cause lasting harms to children. Andersson and Braegger assess the extent of iodine deficiency, linked to thyroid dysfunction, among lactating women and children, concluding that there is an urgent need for better standards. Van Iersel and associates provide recommendations for the surveillance of endocrine disorders in survivors of childhood, adolescent, or young adult cancer, concentrating on hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction.
