Can’t get enough of Bubble Wrap? The Bubble Wrap Plus is a monthly paediatric journal club reading list  from Anke Raaijmakers working with Professor Jaan Toelen & his team of the University Hospitals in Leuven. This comprehensive list is developed from 34 journals, including major and subspecialty paediatric journals. We suggest this list can help you discover relevant or interesting articles for your local journal club or simply help you to keep an finger on the pulse of paediatric research.

This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘How long does metronidazole treatment change the gut microbiology?’, ‘Do corticosteroids have a place in the treatment of acute pyelonephritis?’, ‘Is metformin safe for treating obesity in childhood?’, ‘Is it safe to delay antibiotic treatment in respiratory tract infections?’ and ‘Can dried blood spots be used for the detection of congenital CMV infection?’.

You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
