    Children’s Hospital Celebrating
    International Attention
         Children’s Hospital offers the highest quality of care for the children of our region, and
    has recently been garnering international attention for advancements in medical treatment
    provided right here in New Orleans.
         The cover story in this issue of Small World features one of our young patients who
    faced tremendous odds, yet endured with the help of our medical team. Quentin Murray
    has a heartwarming story that offers a prime example of how and why Children’s Hospital is
    integral to the community.
          This spring, you can help us celebrate our achievements and ensure we continue to be
    one of the nation’s premier pediatric medical centers. Friends and supporters of the hospital
    will come together in celebration of the 30th annual Sugarplum Ball on Friday, April 1,
    2011, at the New Orleans Fair Grounds.
         The first Sugarplum Ball helped the hospital establish its first intensive care transport
    team in tandem with the opening of its Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. This year, with
    your help, the hospital will expand its transport
    services by purchasing its own medical transport
    helicopter. The pediatric transport team provides
    24-hour air and ground emergency transport                  “Children’s Hospital offers the highest quality
    for gravely ill and injured children who need
    immediate care.
                                                                    of care for the children of our region,

         Before I go, I would be remiss not to thank each and every one of you who helped make
    the Jazz Half marathon such a success. Led by our Development Director Roger Gorman, in
    two years the event has grown into a fantastic fundraiser and vehicle to share our many good
    stories with the public. Despite tough economic times, several local companies, led by
    Grainger, Walgreen’s, Fujifilm and WDSU, stepped up to make this a remarkable event that
    brought in more than $115,000 for the hospital. Again, thank you.

    Schools Should Teach Nutrition
    To Help Fight Obesity Crisis
         Severe obesity has become one of the scourges of modern society. It results in many
    complications including Type II diabetes, hypertension and heart failure. Traditional treatments
    include behavior modification, increased exercise, reduction of caloric intake and bariatric surgery
    for certain patients.
         The issue of obesity represents an enormous public health challenge for the country and
    especially for Louisiana where 64.9 percent of adults and 47.5 percent of children are either
    obese or overweight. The State ranks fifth highest for the incidence of adult obesity (31%) and
    fourth highest (29%) for children and teenagers aged 2 to 15 years. There are more than 1.1
    million children and teenagers in Louisiana of whom up to 30 percent - 330,000 - are obese. It
    was recently estimated that the annual cost of child obesity-associated illness in Louisiana was
    approximately $127 million. It is obvious that obesity represents a huge public health challenge.
    There is no way that the current pediatric healthcare services in the State can adequately address
    the problem of obesity in the younger population.
         It has been proposed that families can do their part
    to reduce obesity by adopting a more heart healthy diet,
    exercising more and reducing the time that their children
    participate in sedentary activities, such as watching TV or           “It was recently estimated that the

    However, children tend to mimic their parents and               annual cost of child obesity-associated illness in
    since there is such a high incidence of adult obesity I am
    skeptical that such a program would be effective.
                                                                      Louisiana was approximately $127 million.”
         A can of soda provides 155 calories, sports drinks
    are high in sugar also and “energy drinks” are even
    worse. Many people now drink diet sodas in which
    sugar is replaced by an alternate low calorie sweetener. Unfortunately this may not be a successful strategy. Between 1987 and 2000
    the number of Americans consuming sodas with sugar-free sweetener doubled. During the same period, the incidence of obesity
    doubled from approximately 15 percent to 30 percent of the population. This could be coincidence, but there is increasing evidence
    that this is not the case. In both man and in experimental animals it has become apparent that low calorie sweeteners and sugar are
    not interchangeable. Although they both saturate “sweet” receptors in the tongue, they stimulate different areas in the brain. It
    is proposed that eating foods containing sugar generates a feeling of satiety which provides feedback to limit further food intake.
    Conversely, non-caloric sweeteners do not stimulate the same areas of the brain so that additional eating is needed to provide the same
    sense of satisfaction. In support of this hypothesis, rats fed low calorie sweeteners ingested more food than those fed sugar.
         Children’s Hospital was one of six centers in the country that was chosen to participate in the National Institutes of Health
    funded Dietary Intervention Study in Children (DISC). In this study, eight and nine year old children and their families were given a
    very intensive course on providing a heart healthy diet designed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, especially the “bad” cholesterol.
    The program accomplished its goals. Recently there was a follow up evaluation of participants. Almost 20 years after the initial study
    there was evidence that this training was still effective when data from the intervention subjects was compared to that from the control
    group. Based on this data, I believe that schools need to implement into their curriculum a course on healthy nutrition. This should
    begin as early as the second or third grade and continue each year in elementary school. Not only would this help the children it could
    also help their entire family. Children can have a powerful influence on their parents.

    The SpeechEasy Device in
    Children who Stutter
    Dr. Anne L. Foundas, professor & vice-chair of clinical research of
    the Neurology Department at LSU Health Sciences Center, New
    Orleans in the Research Institute for Children at Children’s Hospital,
    is conducting a study with the SpeechEasy device to see if it can help
    children with developmental stuttering, a major source of disability
    and suffering. Stuttering is the most common developmental speech
    disorder and affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans, including
    four percent of children. Although the disorder significantly impacts
    social, academic, and vocational achievements of individuals who
    stutter, important questions remain regarding factors that cause,
    exacerbate and/or maintain stuttering. There are very few behavioral
    or drug treatments that effectively reduce stuttering. The efficacy of
    various treatments for stuttering remains a source of vigorous debate
    and investigation.
          Historically, there have been claims of “cures” or that stuttering
    has been “solved” as a developmental disorder. There are currently
    a range of clinical practices and therapeutic strategies that may
    successfully treat stuttering in some children, adolescents and adults.
    It is generally agreed that stuttering is best managed in childhood
    because children often respond faster, become more fluent, and
    maintain fluency longer than adults. Although many people achieve
    significant decreases in stuttering with treatment, many others
    continue to have difficulty communicating throughout their lives.
                                                                                      The specific aims of this proposal are twofold: (1) to examine

     An unexpected child and
     groundbreaking procedure
     arrive in time to save
     Quentin Murray’s life

tossing a cliché. She was unexpected, but she arrived just in    chemotherapy, he would have had about a 35 percent chance
time to save her older brother Quentin’s life.                   for survival, but hospital staffers gave her hope that her new

doctors to discover what was causing pain all over Quentin’s          Children’s Hospital was participating in a multi-center
body before the four-year-old was diagnosed with acute           clinical trial being conducted at LSU Health Sciences

and white blood cells which normally fight infections.           of New York-Presbyterian and Columbia University Medical
      “I was devastated that he had cancer, but we had           Center using human placenta-derived stem cells (HPDSCs)
struggled for so long to determine what was wrong with him       for patients with a range of disorders including cancers
– going back and forth to different doctors, his pediatrician,   and non-malignancies, including stroke, multiple sclerosis
orthopaedist, ophthalmologist.” Webb said. “I was relieved       and Crohn’s disease. HPDSCs are immature and versatile
to know what he had, and confident in Children’s because of      stem cells with potentially broad therapeutic applications

                                                                 malignancies, solid tumor cancers and autoimmune diseases.

     The transplanted cells improve patients’ treatment by expediting
     engraftment and restoring normal blood formation and immune
          Quentin’s doctor, Lolie C. Yu, MD, professor of pediatrics, chief of
     the pediatric Hematology-Oncology program and director of the bone
     marrow transplant (BMT) program at LSU Health Sciences Center
     and Children’s Hospital, said studies showed HPDSCs are very similar
     to umbilical cord blood stem cells (which have been used medically for
     years), but they have distinct differences that provide an anti-leukemic
     effect. Combined, the two types of stem cells could work together to
     make the transplantation successful and greatly improve the rebuilding of
     blood and the immune system.

     One in a Million Chance
          With chemotherapy Quentin went into remission less than a month
     after his illness was diagnosed, but his parents were warned that he was
     at high risk for a relapse. When Jory was born on Dec. 3, 2007, she was
     tested to see if she could be a donor.
          She was a perfect match. “We were told that was like the equivalent
     of winning the lottery,” Webb said, “to have a child on the way who was a
     perfect match for him – what a blessing.”
           Doctors sent her placenta and umbilical cord blood to Celgene
     Cellular Therapeutics, a biopharmaceutical firm in Summit, N.J., for the
     cells to be collected, cryo-preserved and stored for the transplant.
          On March 28, 2008, Dr. Yu performed the groundbreaking
     transplant at Children’s Hospital. For the first time ever, HPDSCs would
     be used in cancer treatment.
          “You hear transplant and you picture a high-intensity ER, but it was
     really low key,” Webb said. “It was like a transfusion, but the stem cells
     looked like pink hair gel.”
          With his immune system in ruins, Quentin had to remain isolated
     in his room for four months, until his body was able to sufficiently
     fight viruses and infections. But the transplant appeared to be a success.
     Within 28 days, his body was creating all types of new blood cells,
     restoring normal blood formation and immune function, and he was
     discharged from the hospital two weeks earlier compared to traditional
     cord blood transplants.
          “I don’t think that we can clearly establish that this result is due
     to the placenta stem cells because it’s only one patient. But, certainly,
     the results are very encouraging and suggestive that these cells do make

a difference, further raising our hopes regarding the benefits of this
treatment,” Dr. Yu said. “I had another patient who presented almost
exactly like Quentin – same time, same type of leukemia, high-risk
features – but this patient did not receive the placenta stem cells, and,
unfortunately for that patient, the leukemia came back shortly after.”
      Robert Hariri, MD, PhD, CEO of Celgene Cellular Therapeutics,
the company that owns proprietary technologies for collecting,
processing and storing HPDSCs, said, “The transplanted cells worked as
expected. We are pleased with this first positive step, and are excited to
advance our study of the placenta as a source of stem cells that have the
ability to effectively treat patients worldwide.”

     For the past two years, Dr. Yu has carefully monitored Quentin, and
she says his prognosis is excellent. “I was extremely encouraged by his
course after the transplantation,” she said. “He did not develop any major
complications and recovered at a rate much faster than giving just cord
blood stem cells.”
     Dr. Yu will continue to see him twice a year for the next 24 months
and then annually. “Quentin is doing extremely well, and I’m so proud
of him. He’s an inspiration. He brings life into the room when he enters.
He’s a very happy child in a very happy family, who should have a long
fruitful life ahead.”
     Today, Quentin is a benevolent boy, who recognizes the gift of life
he received from his sister. “Jory saved my life,” he says. “My sister is my
special angel. I love her.”
     Webb continually gives thanks to Quentin’s medical team for the
care he received. This fall, she wrote a book about Quentin’s journey and
the support they continue to receive from Children’s Hospital.
     “My husband and I used to live in Memphis, so we know how strong
a reputation St. Jude’s has, but we received world-class care right here,
close to home. Children’s Hospital is the reason our son is alive today,
and I can’t thank you enough.”

     Webb, a journalist, wrote a book about her family’s experience. The
Summer of Superheroes and the Making of Iron Boy sells for $15.95 and is
available at the New Orleans Community Book Center and The Afro-American
Book Stop as well as www.amazon.com and www.createspace.com/3458326. A
percentage of the proceeds will benefit Children’s Hospital, The Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society and The JL Foundation, which provides financial assistance
to families dealing with leukemia. On November 23 from 10 to noon, Webb will
hold a reading and book signing at Children’s Hospital.
