Young Bae Sohn, Su Jin Kim, Sung Won Park, Se-Hwa Kim, Sung-Yoon Cho, Soo Hyun Lee, Keon Hee Yoo, Ki Woong Sung, Jae Hoon Chung, Hong Hoe Koo, Dong-Kyu Jin
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(6):253-259.   Published online June 30, 2011
Purpose

Long-term survivors of childhood cancer appear to have an increased risk for the metabolic syndrome, subsequent type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in adulthood compared to healthy children. The purpose of this study was to investigate the frequency of the metabolic syndrome and associated factors in childhood cancer survivors at a single center in Korea.

Methods

We performed a retrospective review of...

Responses and adverse effects of carboplatin-based chemotherapy for pediatric intracranial germ cell tumors
Suntae Ji, Hee Won Chueh, Ju Youn Kim, Su Jin Lim, Eun Joo Cho, Soo Hyun Lee, Keon Hee Yoo, Ki Woong Sung, Hong Hoe Koo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(3):128-132.   Published online March 31, 2011
Purpose

Cisplatin-based chemotherapy has been commonly used for the treatment of intracranial germ cell tumors (IC-GCTs). However, this treatment exhibits some adverse effects such as renal problems and hearing difficulty. Carboplatin-based chemotherapy was administered to pediatric patients with IC-GCTs from August 2004 at the Samsung Medical Center. In this study, we assessed the responses and adverse effects of carboplatin-based chemotherapy in...
