Lymphocyte-monocyte ratio at day 14 of first cisplatin-doxorubicin chemotherapy is associated with treatment outcome of pediatric patients with localized osteosarcoma
Jun Ah Lee, Hea Lin Oh, Dong Ho Kim, Jung Sub Lim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2019;62(2):62-67.   Published online October 1, 2018

Purpose: We aimed to determine the prognostic significance of lymphocyte counts and the lymphocytemonocyte ratio (LMR) in pediatric patients with osteosarcoma. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 27 pediatric patients with localized extremity osteosarcoma, treated at the Korea Cancer Center Hospital between May 2002 and March 2016. Leukocyte counts and LMR before treatment and on day 14 (LMR14) of...

The impact of an educational intervention on parents' decisions to vaccinate their <60-month-old children against influenza
Aery Choi, Dong Ho Kim, Yun Kyung Kim, Byung Wook Eun, Dae Sun Jo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2017;60(8):254-260.   Published online August 14, 2017
Purpose

Seasonal influenza can be prevented by vaccination. Disease prevention in children aged <60 months is of particular importance because of the associated familial and societal burden. Considering that caretakers make the decision to vaccinate their children, the identification of drivers and barriers to vaccination is essential to increase influenza vaccination coverage.

Methods

A total of 639 parents participated in the pre- and...

Tuberculosis-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in adolescent diagnosed by polymerase chain reaction
Ju-Hee Seo, Jun Ah Lee, Dong Ho Kim, Joongbum Cho, Jung Sub Lim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(1):43-46.   Published online January 22, 2016

We present a case of tuberculosis-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in a 14-year-old girl. The patient presented with weight loss, malaise, fatigue, prolonged fever, and generalized lymphadenopathy. Laboratory investigation revealed pancytopenia (white blood cells, 2,020 cells/µL; hemoglobin, 10.2 g/dL; platelets, 52,000 cells/µL), hypertriglyceridemia (229 mg/dL), and hyperferritinemia (1,420 ng/mL). Bone marrow biopsy showed a hypocellular bone marrow with a large numbers of...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2013;56(9):401-406.   Published online September 30, 2013
Purpose

We performed a pilot study to determine the benefit of high-dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (HDCT/autoPBSCT) for patients with Ewing sarcoma family of tumors.

Methods

We retrospectively analyzed the data of patients who received HDCT/autoPBSCT at Korea Cancer Center Hospital. Patients with relapsed, metastatic, or centrally located tumors were eligible for the study.

Results

A total of 9 patients (3...

Evaluation of immunogenicity of the 2008-2009 seasonal influenza vaccines by microneutralization test
Seung Youn Kim, Yun Kyung Kim, Byung Wook Eun, Nam Hee Kim, Eun Kyeong Kang, Byong Sop Lee, Jung Sub Lim, Jun Ah Lee, Dong Ho Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(12):474-480.   Published online December 20, 2012
Purpose

For evaluating the immunogenicity of an influenza vaccine, the microneutralization (MN) test has a higher sensitivity and specificity as compared to the hemagglutination inhibition (HI) test. However, the MN test is more time consuming and is difficult to standardize. We performed the MN test to determine its usefulness as an alternative or complementary test to the HI test for evaluating...

Candida tropicalis arthritis of the elbow in a patient with Ewing's sarcoma that successfully responded to itraconazole
Seung Youn Kim, Jung Sub Lim, Dong Hwan Kim, Hyeon Jeong Lee, Joong Bum Cho, Jun Ah Lee, Dong Ho Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(9):385-388.   Published online September 30, 2011

Fungal infections are rarely responsible for arthritis. Few cases of fungal arthritis have been reported, even in immunocompromised hosts susceptible to low-virulence organisms. Herein, the authors report the first case of Candida tropicalis arthritis in a child with a solid tumor. A 13-year-old boy with Ewing's sarcoma developed arthritis in his elbow during the neutropenic period after chemotherapy. Despite treatment...

Pulmonary tuberculosis misdiagnosed as lung Metastasis in childhood cancer patients
Hyun Rae KK, Dong Whand Lim, Kang Min, Kyung Duk Park, Jun Ah Lee, Soo Yeon Cho, Yoon Hoh Kook, Hee Youn Kim, Dong Ho Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(8):904-909.   Published online August 15, 2009

Purpose:The differential diagnosis for a pulmonary nodule is intriguing in cancer patients. Metastasis might be a preferential diagnosis, and yet possibilities of other medical conditions still exist. Pulmonary tuberculosis should be enlisted in the differential diagnosis for a pulmonary nodule in cancer patients in Korea. This study was aimed at analyzing the incidence and clinical features of pulmonary tuberculosis that were misdiagnosed as...
Bilateral retinoblastoma: Long-term follow-up results from a single institution
Sang Yul Choi, Dong Hwan Kim, Kang Min Lee, Hyun Jae Lee, Mi-Sook Kim, Tai-Won Lee, Sang Wook Choi, Dong Ho Kim, Kyung Duk Park, Jun Ah Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(6):674-679.   Published online June 15, 2009
Purpose : The authors aimed to analyze the long-term effects of treatments, especially external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), in bilateral retinoblastoma patients. Methods : This retrospective study analyzed the medical records of 22 bilateral retinoblastoma patients who were registered between October, 1987 and October, 1998 and followed-up for more than 10 years.

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(10):1011-1017.   Published online October 15, 2007
Purpose : We tried to assess the optimal conditions to improve low transduction efficiency and their effect on target cells. Methods : Cultured NIH 3T3 cells were incubated with retroviral vectors bearing an enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) gene. We varied the ratio of viral vectors to target cells (1:1-1:8) and the number of transfections (X1, X2), and compared transduction...
