Clinical significance of matrix metalloproteinase 9 and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 1 and 2 in Kawasaki disease
Ki Wook Yun, Sin Weon Sin, Jung Ju Lee, Soo Ahn Chae, In Seok Lim, Eung Sang Choi, Byoung Hoon Yoo, Mi-Kyung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(4):510-518.   Published online April 15, 2010
Purpose : Kawasaki disease (KD) is a systemic vasculitis, a leading cause of pediatric acquired heart disease. Histopathological findings of coronary artery lesion (CAL) in KD indicate destruction of the coronary artery wall with diffuse vasculitis. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their endogenous tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) might play central roles in this process. Special attention to MMP-9 has recently been emerging....

Gwi Ok Park, Ji Hyun Kim, Jae Hee Lee, Jung Ju Lee, Sin Weon Yun, In Seok Lim, Dong Keun Lee, Eung Sang Choi, Byoung Hoon Yoo,, Mi Kyung Lee, Soo Ahn Chae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(3):330-338.   Published online March 15, 2009
Purpose : The causes of acute lower respiratory tract infection (ALRTI) are mostly attributable to viral infection, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), parainfluenza virus (PIV), influenza virus A/B (IFV A/B), or adenovirus (ADV). Several Korean studies reported human metapneumovirus (hMPV) as a common pathogen of ALRTI. However, studies on seasonal distribution and clinical differences relative to other viruses are insufficient,...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(4):453-457.   Published online April 15, 2004
Central diabetes insipidus is a rare disorder that can result as a consequence of diverse etiologies, including malformations, autoimmune, infiltrative(e.g. neoplastic or histiocytosis) or traumatic processes, as well as mutations in the gene encoding arginine vasopressin. Idiopathic central diabetes insipidus is a diagnosis of exclusion, one that has been made less frequently through the decades. Idiopathic central diabetes insipidus in...

Apoptosis, P53, bax and Bcl-2 Protein Expressions in Neonatal rat Hippocampus by Kainic Acid-induced Seizure
Shin Weon Yun, Soo Ahn Chae, Eung sang Choi, Byoung Hoon Yoo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(1):85-96.   Published online January 15, 2000
Purpose : Apoptosis is a process of active cell death which has been suggested to be part of hippocampal cell loss caused by kainic acid(KA). Immature rats showed higher susceptibility and mortality to KA but did not develop recurrent seizure, long term behavioral or neuropathologic changes. We investigated whether this was due to age-dependent resistance, and elucidated the molecular mechanics which mediate P53-induced apoptosis,...

Malignant atrophic papulosis (Degos’ disease) is characterized by porcelain-white skin lesions. It has unknown etiology and bad prognosis. Death usually occurs from multiple intestinal perforations weeks to years after onset. We experienced a case of Degos’ disease in a 12-year-old male patient who had porcelain white papules on face, trunk and extremities. Histopathologic studies showed broad epidermal necrobiosis with thrombotic arteriolar occlusion. A brief review of...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1982;25(2):162-167.   Published online February 28, 1982
Pulmonary artery aneurysms are extremely rate and are seldom diagnosed during life. In true aneurysms, dilatation tends to be confined to the main trunk of the artery and degenerative changes in the wall are found. In 1971, Williams et al reported the first successful excision and replacement of the main pulmonary artery, including the bifurcation, with a dacron graft. Since...

Eung Sang Choi, Chang Hyo Lee, Chong Ku Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1980;23(2):111-117.   Published online February 15, 1980
The bilirubin formed in utero by the fetus can cross the placena and be excreted by the maternal liver. After birth, however, the infant must excrete its own bilirubin and hepatic clearance is not sufficient to prevent its accumulation during first week of life This transition has been physiologic jaundice and defined as an elevation of serum bilirubin that does...
