New Study on Type 2 Diabetes
On June 1, the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program (CPSP) began a new study on Incidence trends of type 2 diabetes, medication-induced diabetes, and monogenic diabetes in Canadian children - a comparison CPSP study one decade later. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an emerging disease in children that was not described before the 1980s. However, today it accounts for 20 to 50% of new-onset childhood diabetes. By largely replicating the first CPSP study on non-type 1 diabetes mellitus (NT1DM), this subsequent study can describe whether the 'face' of childhood-onset T2D is changing related to demographics, clinical presentation, and severity; information that is critical to designing prevention and treatment programs to meet the specific needs of the populations affected.

On March 1, the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program (CPSP) began a new study on Congenital Zika syndrome in infants in Canada following the rising concerns and strong scientific consensus that Zika virus is implicated in congenital abnormalities. A related CPSP study on severe microcephaly was launched nearly a year ago to look at cases of severe microcephaly in Canada from all causes. This new study will focus on a wide range of congenital abnormalities that have been described in infants born to mothers infected with Zika virus. For more information and to report a case, refer to the protocol and case definition.
