Changes of Body Weight and Lipid Profiles According to Apolipoprotein E Polymorphism in Children with Antiepileptics
Seung Hee Jang, Eun Kyoung Choi, So Hee Eun, Sun Jun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(1):88-94.   Published online January 15, 2002

This may be sufficiently severe to cause noncompliance or to require the withdrawal of effective treatment. Unfortunately, the exact mechanism of weight change is not illustrated. Several reports and our experiment suggested that weight gain highly correlated with a familial tendency of obesity. The genetic makeup is a...

Sun Jun Kim, Jong San Lee, Chan Uhng Joo, Dae Yeol Lee, Jung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(8):1106-1116.   Published online August 31, 1989
Human atrial myocytes secrete atrial natriuretic peptides (ANP) into the plasma, which causes rapid and marked natriuresis, diuresis and vasorelaxation. The releases of renin, aldosterone, and antidiuretic hormone are inhibited by ANP in vivo and in vitro experiments. Various atrial natriur- etic peptides were isolated and synthesized. Plasma ANP concentrations usually elevated in conges- tive heart failure, chronic renal failure, pulmonary arterial hypertension, tachyarrhythmia,...
