Sang Hyug Ma, Jung Mi Lee, Byung Hag Lim, Im Ju Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(2):223-231.   Published online February 15, 1995
Purpose : Bronchial asthma is a disorder that is characteized by symptoms of reversible airway obstruction and increased responsiveness of the bronchus and to quantify the degree of br onchial hyperresponsivenes can be very helpful in determing the severity of disease and the prognosis. But the Methacholine provocation test is not always easy to be performed in all patients. Thus...
Airway Resistance after Exercise Loading Test in Asthmatic Children
Ji Eun Lee, Young Mi Hong, Kyung Hee Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(10):1333-1339.   Published online October 15, 1994
Exercise induced asthma(EIA) is defined as acute, reversible, usually self-immiting airway obstruction which develop after strenous exercise in patients with asthma. EIA is a bigger problem in children than adults due to more active and smaller airways which obstruct more easily when bronchospasm develops. The exercise elicited amny change in pulmonary function of asthmatic children. These change could be measured...
Eosinophil Cationic Protein in Relation to Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness in Asthmatic Children
Jin Tack Kim, Joon Sung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(12):1707-1715.   Published online December 15, 1993
The eosinophil is the major cell responsible for the inflammatory reaction in bronchial asthma. Secretion of granular components is probably of considerable importance for the inflammatory effects of the eosinophils, Eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) is the one of the secretory components of the eosinophil granule and is considered as an activation marker of eosinophil, Blood eosinophil count, serum concentration of...

Serum Eosinophil Cationic Protien(ECP) in Children with Atopic Astham
Dae Cheol Kim, Ha Baik Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(6):810-819.   Published online June 15, 1993
Eosinophils play a major role in the airway inflammation in asthma. To werify an association between airway responsiveness of asthmatics and eosinophil and/or ECP, we measured serum ECP in 23 children with atopic asthma during acute attacks and stable, and in 10 normal healthy controls. Peak flows were monitored in 15 children. The data suggest that serum ECP levels were higher...

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
Clin Exp Pediatr. 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...

A Case of Chronic Recurrent Obstructive Bronchitis Associated with Gastro-Esophageal Reflux
Myung Hee Min, Sang Soo Roh, Sang Il Lee, Sang Woo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(4):556-562.   Published online April 15, 1992
It has been well established that the gastroesophageal reflux and chronic respiratory problem were closely related. Several reports in pediatric literature have implicated the aspiration of gasrtric contents as a trigger factor of cough, wheezing, and recurrent pulmonary disease. Several possible mechanisms have been proposed whereby acidic gastric content can trigger bronchospasm and, in turn, bronchospams can trigger gastroesopohageal reflux. Several tests,...
