Hye Jung Choi, Seoung Geun Kim, Jong Duk Kim, Jun Hyeng Kim, Jun Hyen Kim, Sung Mi Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(6):215-218.   Published online June 21, 2012

Mucoceles are common benign cystic lesions of the oral cavity that develop following extravasation or retention of mucous material from the major or minor salivary glands. Mucoceles are usually located in the lower lip (60 to 70% of cases), and the floor of the mouth is only involved in 6 to 15% of cases. Submandibular gland mucocele is extremely rare...

Comparison of clinical and laboratory characteristics in children with type 1 diabetes according to pancreatic autoantibodies
Ji Hae Choi, Min Sun Kim, Chan Jong Kim, Jong Duk Kim, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(3):414-419.   Published online March 15, 2010

Purpose:The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is any difference in the clinical and laboratory characteristics of patients with autoantibody-positive and patients with autoantibody-negative type 1 diabetes at initial presentation. Methods:We analyzed 96 patients under 18 years of age with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes. One or both of the pancreatic autoantibodies-glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies (GADA) and...
Anti-tumor effect of new compound, 127, through the induction of apoptosis
Ki Hwan Baek, A Lum Han, Sae Ron Shin, Chun Mae Jin, Young Wook Yoon, Seung Taek Yu, Jong Duk Kim, Du Young Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(6):696-700.   Published online June 15, 2009
Purpose : We screened more than 350 compounds with an endoperoxide ring structure in search of an anti-leukemic drug and found that compound 127 (c-127) could induce significant cytotoxicity in HL-60 cells. In this study, we investigated the molecular mechanisms of compound 127-induced antitumor activity on HL-60 cells. Methods : HL-60 cells were cultured in Rosewell Park Memorial Institute 1640...
Clinical factors causing hyperbilirubinemia in patients with Kawasaki disease
Kyung Hee Moon, Ok Ran Kim, Seung Taek Yu, Myung Eun Hong, Chang Woo Lee, Du Young Choi, Yeon Kyun Oh, Jong Duk Kim, Hyang Suk Yoon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(1):52-55.   Published online January 15, 2007
Purpose : Hyperbilirubinemia, jaundice and gallbladder hydrops are unusual manifestations of Kawasaki disease (KD). In this case, abdominal pain, anorexia and abdominal distension may follow eventfully. We reviewed the clinical and laboratory data to investigate the causative factors of hyperbilirubinemia in patients with KD. Methods : Two-hundred eighty two children diagnosed and hospitalized with KD were identified by searching patients' charts....
Immunogenicity and safety of enhanced-inactivated poliovaccine(eIPV) in healthy Korean infants
Jung Soo Kim, Young Jin Hong, Jong Duk Kim, Young Taek Jang, Jin Han Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(8):864-869.   Published online August 15, 2006
Purpose : We evaluated the immunogenicity and safety of eIPV(Imovax PolioⓇ) in a group of healthy Korean infants on a three-dose primary vaccination. Methods : Eighty one healthy infants aged 8-10 weeks were enrolled, and 79(male 42, female 37) completed the study. Three doses of eIPV were injected intramuscularly at 2, 4 and 6 months of age as of primary...
The study on cytotoxicity of cytokines produced by the activated human NKT cells on neuroblastoma
Jin Young Cho, Young Wook Yoon, Hyang Suk Yoon, Jong Duk Kim, Du Young Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(4):439-445.   Published online April 15, 2006
Purpose : α-Galactosylceramide (α-GalCer)-stimulated human Vα24 natural killer T (NKT) cells exert antitumor activity against some leukemia in a CD1d dependent and TCR-mediated manner, but could not kill CD1d - negative neuroblastoma (NB) cells. There are few reports about the direct antitumor effect of highly secreted cytokines by these cells on activation. In this study, using a cell-free supernatant (SPN)...
