Seung Joo Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1992;35(8):1035-1043.   Published online August 15, 1992
An association between urinary tract infection in male infants and uncircumcised status has been suggested recently. Male predominance of UTI in most reports in Korea may be related to this uncircumcised status. The present study was prospectively performed between Mar. 1989 and May. 1991 to investigate this relationship and the effect of neonatal circumcision on the intraurethral bacterial flora. 1) The...

Tuberculosis has been an important world-wide infectious disease. The prevalence of radiologically active tuberculosis was 1.8% of population in Korea. Probably the most important aspect of the pathogenesis of tuberculosis is the nature and specificity of the response of the immune system to the antigens of tubercle bacilli. Preparation of purified antigens from Mycobacteria with specific antigenic deterninants would improve...

Chan Uhng Joo, Soo Wan Chae
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1992;35(8):1107-1112.   Published online August 15, 1992
Anthracycline antibiotic adriamycin (doxorubicin) is presently considered to be a very effective chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of many human tumors. Adriamycin induced cardiomyopathy limits its clincal use. A number of hypotheses have been proposed to explain the mechanism of cardiotoxicity with adriamycin, but none has yet been demonstrated. The effects of adriamycin on membrane potential and intracellular sodium ion...
