The relationship between serum adiponectin and inflammatory cytokines in obese Korean juveniles
Sung Hwan Byun, Eun Byul Kwon, Se Young Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(12):533-537.   Published online December 31, 2014

Obesity is related to systemic inflammatory processes causing cardiovascular complications. Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), CD40 ligand (CD40L), P-selectin are newly described mediators of inflammation and have a significant effect in atherosclerosis. Adiponectin has shown anti-inflammatory effects in adults. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between adiponectin and inflammatory mediators in children and adolescents.

Growth and sex differentiation of children born small for gestational age
Se Young Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(2):142-151.   Published online February 15, 2009
The incidence of small for gestational age (SGA) births is frequent, accounting for 2.3% to 8% of all live births. Several childhood and adult diseases are related to early postnatal growth and birth size, and 10% of children born SGA may have a short stature throughout postnatal life. Additionally, they may have abnormal growth hormone (GH)-insulin like growth factor axis,...

Kyung Pil Park, Se Young Kim, Heng Mi Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(1):17-23.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : Cholestasis is a major complication in prolonged use of TPN, especially in the neonatal period, but there are few long-term reviews examining the clinical course in premature infants. Thus, in this study, we reviewed premature infants with TPN-associated cholestasis(TPNAC) to determine the incidence, clinical courses and possible risk factors. Methods : Retrospective review of 66 premature infants less than...

Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Improved by COX-2 Inhibitor in a Child
Ki Won Oh, Se Young Kim, Hwan Suk Lee, Myung Hoon Lee, Byung Ho Choe
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(12):1591-1595.   Published online December 15, 2002
Familial adenomatous polyposis(FAP) is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by numerous adenomas in the colorectum. Patients with FAP are always at risk of malignant transformation, so that colectomy is unavoidable. NSAID, such as sulindac, and selective COX-2 inhibitor, such as celecoxib, have shown a positive effect on FAP by causing polyp regression in some patients. We report a case of...

Serial Changes of CK, CK-MB after Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation in Pediatric Patients
Se Young Kim, Myung Chul Hyun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(8):893-898.   Published online August 15, 2001
Purpose : To investigate the degree of myocardial injury incurred by radiofrequency catheter ablation(RFCA), we serially measured CK, CK-MB levels in 24 pediatric paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia patients undergoing RFCA(male : 12, female : 12, mean age : 10.5 years, mean weight : 37.2 kg). Methods : We serially measured blood CK, CK-MB levels, 1 day before RFCA(baseline), 8 hours after...
Re-Evaluation of Neonatal Screening Tests for Inborn Errors of Metabolism with Dried Filter Paper Blood Spots

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(12):1639-1644.   Published online December 15, 1999
Purpose : There have been high rates of false positive and recall in neonatal screening test using the cut-off points set by the manufacturing company. So, it is necessary to re-evaluate the cut off values to minimize the false positive rates. Methods : We collected capillary blood in dry filter paper from 996 healthy neonates on the third day in cases...
Usefulness of Minimal Model Analysis : Measurement of Insulin Sensitivity, Glucose Effectiveness, and Insulin Secretory Capacity from Pancreatic Islet Cells in Children with Simple Obesity or Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Se Young Kim, Sei Won Yang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(4):561-570.   Published online April 15, 1999
Purpose : It is known that insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinemia from pancreatic islet cells to overcome insulin resistance could develop in children with simple obesity. When insulin resistance is aggravated by decompensation of high insulin secretion, obese children frequently progress to overt type 2 diabetes mellitus(DM). The purpose of the present study was to measure insulin sensitivity, glucose effectiveness,...

Purpose : Postnatally, 20% of children with intrauterine growth retardation(IUGR) has no catch- up growth, This might be dependent on the serum level of Insulin-like growth factor I(IGF-I), resulting in shortness. We measured serum levels of IGF-I and Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3(IGFBP-3) in children with IUGR and normal short stature variants(NSSV) to observe whether they play a role in...

Mauriac's syndrome was described in the 1920s, as a triad of poorly controlled insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, profound growth retardation, and hepatomgaly. Following the wide availability of insulin and intensification of diabetic control, this entity has become quite rare. A 9-year-old female child was transferred to pediatric OPD of SNUCH because of hyperglycemia, short stature, and visual disturbance. Five years prior to admission, she...
