Interstitial lung disease in children (chILD) is a group of disorders characterized by lung inflammation and interstitial fibrosis. In the past recent years, we noted an outbreak of child in Korea, which is possibly associated with inhalation toxicity. Here, we report a series of cases involving toxic inhalational injury-associated chILD with bronchiolitis(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies suggest that the concentration of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] in cord blood may show an inverse association with respiratory tract infections (RTI) during childhood. The aim of the present study was to examine the influence of 25(OH)D concentrations in cord blood on infant RTI in a Korean birth cohort. METHODS The levels of(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma is a complex genetic disorder that is associated with both genetic and environmental factors. The aim of study was to investigate the combined effect of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), cluster of differentiation 14 (CD14), and interleukin-13 (IL-13) polymorphisms and bronchiolitis in the development of childhood asthma. METHODS A modified(More)
BACKGROUND Allergic rhinitis (AR) has a wide range of clinical features and may be accompanied by comorbid allergic diseases. OBJECTIVE To identify rhinitis phenotypes in school aged children and to predict the prognosis for developing bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) and asthma. METHODS This prospective follow-up study involved schoolchildren from(More)
PURPOSE Probiotic bacteria can induce immune regulation or immune tolerance in allergic diseases. The underlying mechanisms have been recently investigated, but are still unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective effects of the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus (Lcr35) in a mouse model of asthma and to identify its mechanism of action.(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of allergic rhinitis (AR) is increasing worldwide. Allergic diseases develop in susceptible subjects when they are exposed to specific environmental factors. OBJECTIVE We analyzed changes in the prevalence of AR and identified genetic and environmental factors in early childhood that affect risk. METHODS We used the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between three major allergic diseases, asthma, allergic rhinitis (AR), and atopic dermatitis (AD), and psychological and behavioural problems in preschoolers based on a community survey. METHODS A cross-sectional survey was conducted using a modified International Study of Asthma and(More)
PURPOSE The prevalence of allergic diseases has risen over the last few decades. Many factors, including environmental factors such as those related to diet, have been considered. Among dietary factors, intake of antioxidant-related nutrients has been associated with the risk of allergic disease. We investigated the association of antioxidant nutritional(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have identified an increase in the prevalence of asthma associated with paracetamol use. OBJECTIVE To identify the relationship among asthma, biomarkers, genes, and paracetamol use in preschool children. METHODS We undertook a population-based, cross-sectional survey of 933 preschool children. Asthma status was classified(More)
