Question: This study aimed to elucidate the outcomes of high-risk neuroblastoma (HR-NB) patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy and stem cell rescue without immunotherapy.
Finding: The 5-year overall survival and event-free survival rates were 45.1% and 40.4%, respectively.
Meaning: High-dose chemotherapy plus stem cell rescue followed by cis-retinoic acid for 12 months is well tolerated and could improve survival in patients with HR-NB in limited resource settings.

Prognostic factors and treatment of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Jae Wook Lee, Bin Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2017;60(5):129-137.   Published online May 31, 2017

The event-free survival (EFS) for pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has shown remarkable improvement in the past several decades. In Korea also, a recent study showed 10-year EFS of 78.5%. Much of the improved outcome for pediatric ALL stems from the accurate identification of prognostic factors, the designation of risk group based on these factors, and treatment of appropriate duration...

Kyung Mi Shin, Sung Yeon Choi, Sung Chul Won, Chang Hyun Yang, Chuhl Joo Lyu, Chang Ok Suh, Joong Uhn Choi, Byung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(2):178-182.   Published online February 15, 2003
Purpose : Brain tumors are the second most common tumor in childhood, and medulloblastomas comprise 15-25% of brain tumors. The well known prognostic factors are age at diagnosis, stage of disease, and extent of surgical excision. In this study, we analysed the prognostic factors in patients who received chemotherapy after excision. Methods : We reviewed the medical records of 61...

Hwang Jae Yoo, Bon Su Ku, Young Tak Lim, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(8):1093-1101.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : Clinical and pathological prognostic factors of idiopathic IgA nephropathy have been reported, but mostly in adults and a few in children. Especially studies about correlation between those factors are very rare. Methods : We studied 58 children patients who were hospitalized to our clinics and diagnosed as IgA nephropathy by renal biopsy from Jan. 1989 to Jun 1996. They...

Seung Yang, Ho Joon Im, Nam Su Kim, Hahng Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(5):684-694.   Published online May 15, 1998
Purpose : Despite the use of improved therapeutic modalities, long-term survival remains poor in patients in stage Ⅲ or Ⅳ of neurobalstoma and for over 1 year olds at diagnosis. We evaluated the long-term survival rate and related prognostic factors in advanced neuroblastoma. Methods : Twenty-nine children diagnosed with stage Ⅲ or Ⅳ neuroblastoma after 1 year of age, between May...

Young In Choi, Jeong Kee Seo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(12):1653-1663.   Published online December 15, 1995
Purpose : Pancreatitis in children is not common but can be associated with severe morbidity rates. Early prognostic evaluation of acute pancreatitis assists in selecting those patients who should be closely monitored. We studied the clinical characteristics and prognostic factors in patients with acute pancreatitis. Methods : Twenty five children with pancreatitis were included ranging in age from 1.8 to 14.9...

Kyu Chul Choi, Sang Ho Park, Yong Mook Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1987;30(6):664-670.   Published online June 30, 1987
Forty four children with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) were analyzed retrospectively and the following prognostic factors were obtained in response to treatments and clinical courses. And 73.5% of all cases were recovered within 6 months after onset (acute ITP). The patients who were admitted within 1st or 2nd week after onset showed more favorable prognosis with significance (p<0.05 and p< 0.005, respectively). The patients...
