  • BMC (g) and areal BMD (aBMD; g/cm2) were measured with DXA of the total body (TB), the lumbar spine (L2-L4 vertebrae), the third lumbar vertebra (L3), the femoral neck (FN), and the leg.
  • Volumetric BMD (vBMD; g/cm3) and bone size were calculated at L3 and FN.
  • The annual gain in BMC was greater in the intervention group than in the controls: L2-L4, mean 3.8 percentage points (p = 0.007); L3 vertebra, mean 7.2 percentage points (p < 0.001); legs, mean 3.0 percentage points (p = 0.07).
  • The intervention group had a greater annual gain in aBMD: total body, mean 0.6 percentage points (p = 0.006), L2-L4, mean 1.2 percentage points (p = 0.02), L3 vertebra, mean 1.6 percentage points (p = 0.006); legs, mean 1.2 percentage points (p = 0.007).
  • There was also a greater mean annual gain in bone size in the L3 vertebra (mean 1.8 percentage points; p < 0.001) and in the FN (mean 0.3 percentage points; p = 0.02).

  • BACKGROUND: Response in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be achieved in a majority of patients.
  • However, unlike pediatric ALL, recurrence is common in adult ALL, and the ability to predict at an early stage which patients are most likely to experience recurrence may help in devising new therapeutic approaches to prevent recurrence.
  • Positive prediction of L3 morphological classification was achieved in 80% of test cases.

  • In contrast, although clinical cases of lymphogranuloma venereum have not been described in the country, the detection of serovar L3 in this study suggests that it may occur.
  • However, the association of L3 also with childhood infection indicates that it may be causing the same pathology as the serovars D-K that are associated with non-ulcerative sexually transmitted infections.

  • METHODS: Ninety-seven girls and 133 boys aged 7-9 years were recruited as a part of the Malmö Pediatric Osteoporosis Prevention (POP) Study in order to evaluate the influence of self-selected school transportation for the accrual of bone mineral and bone width.
  • Bone mineral content (BMC) was measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in the lumbar spine (L2-L4), third lumbar vertebra (L3) and hip, and bone width was calculated at L3 and femoral neck (FN).

  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: After the good results obtained by the Société Française d'Oncologie Pédiatrique (SFOP) regarding the pediatric B-type non-Hodgkin's (Burkitt and large B-cell) lymphoma and L3 leukemia, the Sociedad Española de Hematología y Oncología Pediátricas (SHOP) decided to use the same treatment protocol.
  • PATIENTS AND METHOD: Pediatric patients diagnosed with B-type non-Hodgkin's lymphoma without a previous history of malignant diseases were eligible for this study.
  • They were classified in 3 groups of risk: group A (resected stage I and abdominal stage II), group B (not eligible for groups A or C), and group C (with central nervous system involvement and L3 leukemia).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results confirm the good efficiency of the LMB89 protocol for treating B-cell lymphoma and L3 leukemia, despite having diminished the treatment intensity in the less risk groups.
  • In addition, no differences were evidenced between Burkitt and large B-cell lymphoma.

  • [Title] Evaluation of wedging of lower thoracic and upper lumbar vertebral bodies in the pediatric population.
  • The purpose of our study was to show whether mild anterior wedging of pediatric thoracolumbar junction vertebral bodies can be seen as a normal variant, rather than as the sequela of trauma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of pediatric abdomen and pelvis CT performed between January 2004 and March 2006, excluding children at high risk for compression fractures.
  • Using sagittal reformations, anterior and posterior heights of all T10-L3 vertebral bodies were measured to determine anterior-to-posterior vertebral body height ratio (A:P ratio).
  • CONCLUSION: From T10 through L3, 95% of children have an A:P ratio greater than 0.893.
  • Because age was not statistically significant with respect to the A:P ratio, this value can be used across all pediatric age groups.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) level has been used as a tumor marker for hepatoblastoma, and malignant germ cell tumors in pediatric patients.
  • The AFP has 3 isoforms (L1, L2, L3), and the usefulness of the L3 fraction as a diagnostic marker for the adult hepatocellular carcinoma is well known.
  • However, there are few reports dealing with various pediatric malignant tumors.
  • In the current study, we analyzed the diagnostic value of AFP fractions for pediatric diseases, in particular, those occurring in the neoinfantile period.
  • In our analytical system (LiBASys), the level of the L3 fraction contains the majority of the L2 fraction.
  • The total AFP (ng/mL) level and the L3 fraction (%) were measured to assess the usefulness of the L3 fraction as a diagnostic marker.
  • RESULTS: In all cases of hepatoblastoma and yolk sac tumor, both the total AFP and the L3 fraction were high, either before treatment or in the presence of malignant tumors.
  • Most of the cases of neonatal immature teratoma showed a high total AFP level during the neoinfantile period, however, the L3 fraction was around 10%, and decreased after surgical treatment.
  • As the total AFP and the AFP-L3 fraction were proportionally elevated, the patient was treated with additional surgical resection and chemotherapy.
  • In the case of neonatal mature teratoma, the L3 fraction was below 0.5%, even when the total AFP level was high.
  • DISCUSSION: Our results indicated that the level of the L3 fraction accurately confirmed the existence, or the malignant potential of hepatic tumor or germ cell tumor.
  • The L3 fraction is useful as a tumor marker during the neoinfantile period.

  • Lectin-reactive alpha-fetoprotein (L3-AFP) is an AFP isoform that is expressed by malignant liver tumors.
  • We investigated whether the analysis of L3-AFP could lead to earlier detection of HCC in HT1 compared with judgement based on total AFP alone.
  • AFP electrophoresis using lectin-containing agarose gel identifies L3-AFP by the affinity of its specific carbohydrate chain to lectin.
  • In 6 patients, the L3-AFP increased before the total AFP.
  • In 3 patients, the rise in L3-AFP was parallel to the rise of total AFP; and in 3 patients, the L3-AFP was raised after the total AFP or did not increase at all.
  • We suggest the further evaluation of L3-AFP in HT1.

  • The authors identified 23 patients with Burkitt lymphoma by the combination of FAB L3 morphology and a mature B-cell phenotype and 22 patients with lymphoblastic lymphoma by FAB L1/L2 morphology and a T-/B-cell precursor phenotype.
  • Burkitt lymphoma, lymphoblastic lymphoma, and, in a few cases, some large cell lymphomas could be classified reliably by cytomorphology and immunophenotyping of freshly obtained tumor cell material, enabling an early start of specific lymphoma treatment.

  • METHODS: A 15-year-old female with progressive thoracic and lumbar curves underwent posterior spinal fusion from T5 to L3 with instrumentation.
  • Her postoperative course was complicated by acute wound infection that underwent irrigation and debridement with retention of implants.

  • Skinfold was also measured; first at regular intervals from C7 to L3 over the erector spinae muscle and then at sites centered over the apex of each curve.
  • From C7 to L3, the mean skinfold thickness of each patient ranged from 7.3 mm to 16.3 mm.
  • On average, this thickness was <10 mm between T3 and T12 but became larger at L3 level.
