In Vitro Immunization-IV: Antibody Response of Mouse Splenocytes Grown in a Mixture of Conditioned Media, Thymocytes, and Bone Marrow Cells
Dong Soo Kim, Geun Woong Noh
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1992;35(7):902-908.   Published online July 15, 1992
We have previously reported several methods of in vitro immunization using different conditioned media, and the highest antibody titer was observed when a mixture of three conditioned media[PHA-stimulated adherent splenocytes conditioned medium (ASM-P), ASM-p-stimulated non-adherent splenocyte conditioned medium (NASM-A), ASM-P-stimulated thymocyte conditioned medium (TM-A)] was used. In this experiment, thymocytes and/or bone marrow cells was added instead of above conditioned media...

From September 1982 to July 1991, 40 infants and children aged 3 days to 13 years(mean 3.1 years) underwent implantation of 45 cardiac pacemakers using epicardial leads(40 primary implants, 5 re-implants). Nineteen patients required pacing for surgically acquired heart block, 1 for surgically acquired sinus node dysfunction, 11 for congenital complete atrio-ventricular(AV) block, 7 for nonsurgical sinus node dysfunction, and...

When we are examining a cardiac patient, we want to make a physical diagnosis including involved ventricles, type of overload(volume or pressure), its degree, and the status or degree of pulmonary hypertension. Among various physical examinations of the cardiac patients, a left parasternal movement can give us a status of various degree of the volume and pressure overload of the ventricles....

Late Asthmatic Responses(LARs) and Consequences on Nonspecific Bronchial Reactivity(NSBR) after Exercise and Allergen Challenges in the Children with Bronchial Asthma
Kyung A Yoon, Young Y. Koh
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1992;35(7):957-970.   Published online July 15, 1992
Exercise and allergen challenges are the main tools to investigate the bronchial responsiveness in experimentally provoked asthma. It is recognized that LAR, which often follows early asthmatic response(EAR) by 3 to 10 hours after challenge, is more closely related to the basic pathogenetic mechanisms operating in bronchial asthma. Although exercise induces an EAR within the first hour similar to allergen...
