Mechanical Ventilation of the Children
June Dong Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(12):1310-1316.   Published online December 15, 2005
Mechanical ventilation in children has some differences compared to in neonates or in adults. The indication of mechanical ventilation can be classified into two groups, hypercapnic respiratory failure and hypoxemic respiratory failure. The strategies of mechanical ventilation should be different in these two groups. In hypercapnic respiratory failure, volume target ventilation with constant flow is favorable and pressure target ventilation...

New Nutritional Concepts of Vitamins and Minerals
Hee-Shang Youn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(12):1295-1309.   Published online December 15, 2005
Nowadays, the nutritional deficits are rarely seen in Korea. However, an increased availability of the highly palatable energy dense, nutrient-poor foods increases the risks of obesity and deficits of vitamins and minerals in the general population. Also, optimum intake of vitamins and minerals, which varies with age and genetic back ground, might not suffice the poor, young, obese, and elderly...

Infection and Innate Immunity
Moo-Young Oh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(11):1153-1161.   Published online November 15, 2005
As known by other name(natural immunity), the innate immune system comprises all those mechanisms for dealing with infection that are constitutive or built in, changing little with age or with experience of infection. Though in some ways less sophisticated than adaptive immunity, innate immunity should not belittled, since it has evidently protected thousands of species of invertebrates sufficiently to survive...
Airway Remodelling in Asthma
Dae Hyun Lim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(10):1038-1049.   Published online October 15, 2005
Asthma is characterized by a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways that leads to tissue injury and subsequent structural changes collectively called airway remodelling. Characteristic changes of airway remodelling in asthma include goblet cell hyperplasia, deposition of collagens in the basement membrane, increased number and size of microvessels, hypertrophy and hyperplasia of airway smooth muscle, and hypertrophy of submucosal glands....
Can We Predict How Often Nephrotic Syndrome will Relapse into the Patients?
Mee Kyung Namgoong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(10):1033-1037.   Published online October 15, 2005
Pediatric nephrotic syndrome is a well-known illness for its high relapsing rate. If we can predict the relapsing rate and the responses to the steroid therapy of individual patients with nephrotic syndrome, the predictability will be helpful in building a therapeutic plan. Here is my review of research articles on the risk factors for the prediction of relapsing nephrotic syndrome.

Epilepsy and Oxygen Free Radicals
Won Seop Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(9):920-923.   Published online September 15, 2005
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder from many molecular and biochemical responses. In the underlying mechanism, free radicals play an important role in seizure initiation and seizure-induced brain damage. Excessive production of oxygen free radicals and other radical species have been implicated in the development of seizures under pathological conditions and linked to seizure-induced neurodegeneration.

Endogenous Neurogenesis in Postnatal Brain
Yun Sil Chang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(8):806-812.   Published online August 15, 2005
Repair mechanisms in the postnatal and mature central nervous system(CNS) have long been thought to be very limited. However recent works have shown that the mature CSN contains neural progenitors, precursors, and stem cells that are capable of generating new neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes especially in germinative areas such as the subventricular zone of the lateral ventricles, the dentate gyrus...

Hypothyroidism is a deficiency in thyroid hormone secretion by the thyroid gland and a defect in thyroid hormonal receptor activity. It is categorized by the two major forms in children, the one is congenital hypothyroidism and the other is acquired hypothyroidism. Congenital hypothyroidism is one of the commonest treatable causes of mental retardation and occurs in 1 in 3,000-4,000 infants...

Mechanisms of Action of Probiotics
Jae Sung Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(7):691-695.   Published online July 15, 2005
There is scientific evidence that administration of probiotics is effective in the treatment of acute infectious diarrhea in children and the prevention of antibiotic associated diarrhea and nosocomial/ community acquired diarrhea. Probiotics prevent relapse of recurrent pouchitis and decrease the initial onset of pouchitis in ulcerative colitis. Probiotic organisms suppress growth of pathogens as well as their epithelial attachment and/or...

Recently, twinning rate increases in Korea since the early 1990s by delayed marriage and prevailing of assisted reproductive technology. But twin and higher-order multiples are at increased risk for perinatal and neonatal mortality over 5 fold despite of dramatic improvement of perinatal and neonatal care. Because twins are born more prematurely and have lower birth weights than singleton. In addition,...

Proliferative and Synthetic Responses of Airway Smooth Muscle in Asthma
Jung Yeon Shim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(6):580-587.   Published online June 15, 2005
New evidence is emerging that airway smooth muscle(ASM) may act as an immunomodulatory cell by providing pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, polypeptide growth factors, extracellular matrix proteins, cell adhesion receptors and co-stimulatory molecules. ASM can promote the formation of the interstitial extracellular matrix, and potentially contribute to the alterations within the extracellular matrix in asthma. In addition, extracellular matrix components can...

Kee Hyuck Kim, Young Sig Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(6):575-579.   Published online June 15, 2005
Urinary incontinence is the most common urinary symptom in children and causes considerable anxiety in children and parents. In most cases, there is no underlying organic pathology and the long- term prognosis is excellent. Despite these reassuring facts, children with wetting problems can be a challenge for primary pediatrician. This is probably because the problem is poorly understood, there is...

The major function of immune system is to protect infections. The immune systems are composed of innate and adaptive immunity. In adaptive immunity, the cellular and humoral components interact each other. Neonates and infants are infected frequently, because immune systems are naive and easy to expose to infectious agents. The complete history and physical examination is essential to evaluate the...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(1):6-12.   Published online January 15, 2005
In the last few years, a spectrum of dendritic cells(DCs), including toll like receptors(TLRs), might play a critical role in regulating allergy and asthma. DC plays a central role in initiating immune responses, linking innate and adaptive responses to pathogen. Human peripheral blood has three non- overlapping dendritic subset that expressed various 11 TLRs. These dendritic subsets and TLR contribute...
