Yu Sun Kang, Joon Hwan Kim, Eun Hee Ahn, Eun-Gyong Yoo, Moon Kyu Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(8):283-287.   Published online August 21, 2015

We assessed the relationships between iron and vitamin D statuses in breastfed infants and their mothers and evaluated the determinants of iron and vitamin D deficiencies in breastfed infants.


Seventy breastfed infants aged 4-24 months and their mothers participated in this study from February 2012 to May 2013. Complete blood counts, total iron binding capacity, and levels of C-reactive protein, iron,...

Vitamin D deficiency in infants aged 1 to 6 months
You Jin Choi, Moon Kyu Kim, Su Jin Jeong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2013;56(5):205-210.   Published online May 28, 2013

The aim of this study was to recognize the state of vitamin D among healthy infants aged 1 to 6 months in South Korea, and also to identify the risk factors affecting the level of vitamin D.


A total of 117 infants were enrolled in this study for 12 months, from March 1, 2011 to February 29, 2012. Serum levels of...

Prevalence and risk factors for vitamin D deficiency in children with iron deficiency anemia
Jung Won Yoon, Sung Woo Kim, Eun Gyong Yoo, Moon Kyu Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(6):206-211.   Published online June 21, 2012

The increasing prevalence of breast feeding has led to concerns about vitamin D deficiency (VDD) and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in children. We evaluated the prevalence of VDD in a population of Korean children with IDA and assessed the risk factors for VDD in these children.


A total of 79 children who were diagnosed with IDA were prospectively surveyed from April...

Case Report
A Case of Subcutaneous Panniculitis-like T Cell Lymphoma in Childhood
Yoon Seok Choi, Kyung Mi Shin, Sung Chul Won, Chuhl Joo Lyu, Chang Hyun Yang, Byung Soo Kim, Moon Kyu Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(8):1028-1032.   Published online August 15, 2002
Subcutaneous pannicultis-like T cell lymphoma is a rare cutaneous T cell lymphoma. It presents with multiple subcutaneous nodules or plaques involving the extremities or trunk, and with constitutional symptoms that include fever, malaise, fatigue, myalgia, chills and weight loss. Histologically, the lesions of this disease are reminiscent of panniculitis and are composed of a mixture of small and large atypical...

Changes in Mean Platelet Volume and Platelet Distribution Width after Therapy in Childhood Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
Jong Tai Kim, Kyung Won Lee, Soon Nam Kim, Moon Kyu Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(4):505-511.   Published online April 15, 2002
Purpose : Mean platelet volume(MPV) and platelet distribution width(PDW) are useful parameters in evaluating disorders of platelets. In cases with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP), they change as platelet count increases. In this study, we compared the values of MPV and PDW in ITP patients at diagnosis with those of normal children. We also studied whether the early changes in MPV may...
A Study of the Bystander Effect and Its Enhancement in HSV-TK Gene Therapy Using a Murine Neuroblastoma Model
Hyun Sang Cho, Moon Kyu Kim, Chong Young Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(3):354-361.   Published online March 15, 2002
Purpose : Selective introduction of genes conferring chemosensitivity into proliferating tumor cells may be used to treat cancer. We first investigated the bystander effect of retrovirus-mediated gene transfer of herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase(HSV-TK) gene to murine neuroblstoma cell line(neuro-2a) in vitro and in vivo. Second, we examined the mechanism and its enhancement of the bystander effect in murine neuroblastoma. Methods...
Changes of Interleukin-6 Level in Serum and CSF in Aseptic Meningitis
Moon Kyu Kim, Dong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(5):625-632.   Published online May 15, 1995
Purpose : Aseptic meningitis is an infection of CNS caused by virus and there are remarka-ble changes in endogenous cytokine level. Interleukin-6 is a pleiotropic and multi-functional cyt-okine and plays a central role in host defense mechanisms. We studied the IL--6 level in serum and CSF with the patients of aseptic meningitis and investigated the relationship of IL-6 with C...
The Effects of RU 41.740, a Glycoprotein Extract from Klebsiella pneumoniae, on Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells
Moon Kyu Kim, Dong Soo Kim, Hyun Ok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(8):1066-1072.   Published online August 15, 1992
RU 41.740 is extract of Klebsiella pneumoniae K2O1 stain with immunomodulatory properties. It was composed of two glycoproteins, each being 31 KD and 33 KD in their molecular weight, on SDS-PAGE analysis. RU 41.740 was observed to augment cell mediated immunity of human peripheral blood mononulear cells measured by tritiated thymidine uptake method. Maximal augmentation was observed after 72 hours...
The Interleukin-6 Level in Kawasak Disease
Moon Kyu Kim, Dong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(4):515-526.   Published online April 15, 1992
Kawasaki disease is an acute multisystemic disease affecting infants and children with prominent vasculitic features. Although there has been considerable progress in understanding the pathogenesis of this disease, the inciting cause remains unclear. It has been noticed that there were many immunologic abnormalities during the acute stage of Kawasaki disease. In the pres-ent study, we studied serum interleukin-6(IL-6), C-reactive protein(CRP),...
