Seung-Ah Baek, Won-Ho Hahn, Byoung-Soo Cho, Sung-Do Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(2):215-221.   Published online February 15, 2010
Purpose : Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is produced by activated CD4+T cells and exhibits pleiotropic biological activity on various cell types. IL-17 was reported to be involved in the immunoregulatory response in IgA nephropathy (IgAN). Our aim was to investigate the association between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in IL-17 receptor A (IL-17RA) gene and childhood IgAN. Methods : We analyzed the SNPs in the...

Current status of pediatric kidney transplantation
Sung-Do Kim, Byoung-Soo Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(10):1075-1081.   Published online October 15, 2009
Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for children with end-stage renal disease. The outcome of pediatric kidney transplantation has improved dramatically in recent years, with lower acute rejection rates, superior graft survival, and low mortality. These improvements have allowed increased attention to other aspects of care for long-term survivors. Taking this into consideration, this review article will focus on...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(2):236-240.   Published online February 15, 2000
Purpose : Systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE) is a disease of immunologic origin, affecting multiple organs including joints, skin, kidneys, nervous system, heart and blood, with rare involvement of gut and liver. The incidence of renal disease in children with SLE was approximately 70 percent and tended to be more severe than in adults. Accordingly we have retrospectively studied on the prognostic...
Clinicial Observations of Oliguric Acute Renal Failure in Children

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(10):1419-1425.   Published online October 15, 1999
Purposes : We studied the clinicial findings of oliguric acute renal failure(ARF) developed on admission or during treatment of other diseases. Methods : We performed a retrospective analysis of medical records of 118 patients with oliguric ARF who had been admitted to Kyunghee University Hospital since January 1988 to December 1997. Diagnostic criteria of oliguric ARF are serum creatinine>1.0mg/dl and urine...
The Correlation between a Semi-quantitative ASO(Antistreptolysin O) Assay by Rantz-Randall and a Quantitative ASO Assay by Nephelometry
Sung-Keun Park, Seok-Hee Ahn, Jung-Woo Lee, Byoung-Soo Cho, Sung-Ho Cha, Yong-Mook Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(12):1670-1674.   Published online December 15, 1997
Purpose : Accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment of infection with Streptococcus pyogenes (group A streptococci) is required as it may cause many complications, and chronic serious sequelae, acute rheumatic fever and acute glomerulonephritis. Recently, the assay methods of ASO concentration tend to be changed into quantitatively from semi-quantitative or qualitative methods in this country. We would like to know relationships and degree of concurrences between...

Byoung-Soo Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(7):906-912.   Published online July 15, 1993
Childhood minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) is often associated with hyper-sensitivity reactions and considered to be caused by immune dysfunction. The elevated serum IgE levels and atopic symptoms have been frequently associated in these patients. The present therapy for MCNS mainly depends on corticosteroids, alkylating agents such as chlorambucil, cyclophosphamide and cyclosporin A (Cy-A). Howerver, frequent relapses and severe side effects...
