Geun Ha Chi, Jeong Nyeo Lee, Woo Yeong Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(12):1329-1335.   Published online December 15, 2008
Purpose : This study aimed to determine the best cutoff line for insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I and insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP)-3 to discriminate between growth hormone deficiency (GHD) patients and the control group. Methods : Two hundred thirty subjects with normal controls (129 boys and 101 girls, aged 7-15 years), 14 patients with complete GHD (12 boys and...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(7):884-890.   Published online July 15, 2002
Purpose : Henoch-Schonlein purpura(HSP) nephritis has been reported to vary from 25 to 50% among HSP patients and is a common cause of chronic glomerulonephritis in children. In our study, we evaluated the distribution and the association of the Insertion/Deletion(I/D) polymorphism of angiotensin converting enzyme(ACE) gene with clinical manifestations, particularly proteinuria in children with HSP nephritis, compared with that in...

Shin Jong Lee, Woo Yeong Chung, Chul Ho Kim, Jeong Nyeo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(7):970-975.   Published online July 15, 1995
The presence of IgG, IgA and IgM antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies(ANCA) were inves-tigated in 32 children with Henoch-Schölein Purpura(HS purpura), in 14 children with HS pur-pura nephritis who were confirrned by renal biopsy and in 12 control children using flow cytom-etry(FASCan, Beckton-Dickinson, Co, USA) and indirect immunofluorescence technique(Sigma Diagnostics, USA). There were no evidence of IgG, IgA or IgM cytoplasmic ANCA(p-ANCA),...
