Perinatal Factors Influencing Clinical Response to Surfactant Replacement Therapy in Neonates with Respiratory Distress Syndrome
June Dong Park, Beyong Il Kim, Jung-Hwan Choi, Chong Ku Yun
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1023-1032.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : Surfactant replacement therapy significantly decreases neonatal complications and mortality in neonates with respiratory distress syndrome(RDS), but clinical responses to the treatment is not consistent. An analysis of the perinatal factors influencing the clinical response to the therapy is important for early detection of high risk and prognosis. The purpose of this study is to analyze the clinical...
Association of Early Postnatal Neutropenia and Development of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Preterm Infants
Hee Seok Kim, Jun Dong Park, Beyong Il Kim, Jung-Hwan Choi, Chong Ku Yun
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1033-1040.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : To see if a similar relationship exists between the decreased number of circulating neutrophils and the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia(BPD) in preterm infants, we tried to test the hypothesis that claims that preterm infants, who develop BPD, have decreased number of circulating neutrophils than those who do not develop BPD. Methods : A retrospective cohort study was conducted in...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1047-1059.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : Analyzing of the causes of childhood death will provide us with the basis to understand prevalent diseases and to make the best possible health plan according to the studies. The National Statistical Office(NSO) of Korea has released an annual report of nationwide death. However, it could have underestimated the death toll of children because of delayed or missing...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1070-1077.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : This study was performed to characterize the epidemiologic and clinical features of acute adenoviral lower respiratory tract infections. Methods : Culture and indirect immunofluorescence for adenovirus was done with nasopharyngeal aspirates from patients with acute lower respiratory tract infections from April to September, 1996. Cultured virus was serotyped for type 3, 4, and 7a by neutralization test, and medical...
The Diagnostic Value of CSF Tumor Necrosis Factor-α for Early Diagnosis of Bacterial Meningitis
So Young Park, Soo Ja Hwang, Eun Ae Park, Jung Wan Seo, Seung Joo Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1078-1083.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : During the course of bacterial meningitis, TNF-α produced by macrophages and monocytes in response to LPS and other inflammatory and immune stimulation, is now recognized as a primary mediator in the pathogenesis of infection, injury and inflammation and in the process of host defence. TNF-α was increased vascular permeability by inducing morphologic and structural changes of endothelial cells...

Correlation Between Clinical and Pathological Prognositic Factors of IgA Nephropathy in Children
Hwang Jae Yoo, Bon Su Ku, Young Tak Lim, Su Yung Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1093-1101.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : Clinical and pathological prognostic factors of idiopathic IgA nephropathy have been reported, but mostly in adults and a few in children. Especially studies about correlation between those factors are very rare. Methods : We studied 58 children patients who were hospitalized to our clinics and diagnosed as IgA nephropathy by renal biopsy from Jan. 1989 to Jun 1996. They...
Growth Status and Levels of Growth Factors in Children with Insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus
So Chung Chung, Duk Hee Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1102-1110.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : It is well known that the linear growth velocity in children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus(type 1 DM) is closely related to metabolic control and onset age of the disease. Many studies have demonstrated growth impairment in children with type 1 DM, regardless of the degree of metabolic control, whereas other studies have found no growth retardation. Therefore, we...

Decrease of Plasma Th2 Cytokines by Interferon(IFN) -γ Therapy in Atopic Dermatitis
Geun Woong Noh, Woo Gill Lee, Dong Hee Cho, Ki Young Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1998;41(8):1128-1134.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : Atopic dermatitis is characterized by reduced IFN-γ production and increased IL-4 production. As a result, IgE production increases in atopic dermatitis. In the previous studies, it was reported that recombinant IFN-γ therapy is effective in treatment of severe atopic dermatitis. In this study, changes of plasma IFN-γ, IL-4, IL-5 and IL-10 concentration by IFN-γ therapy were studied in...
