Flavonoids inhibit histamine release and expression of proinflammatory cytokines in mast cells
The pharmacological actions of these flavonoids suggest their potential activity for treatment of allergic inflammatory diseases through the down-regulation of mast cell activation. Expand
Transient Left Ventricular Dysfunction After Percutaneous Patent Ductus Arteriosus Closure in Children
The results of this study suggest that serial assessments of ventricular function are needed after PDA occlusion in patients with high Qp/Qs and Pp/Ps ratios, and larger amounts of pre-closure left-to-right shunting and higher pulmonary artery pressure were associated with an increased likelihood of FS <29% after closure.

Cytokine response in pediatric patients with pandemic influenza H1N1 2009 virus infection and pneumonia: Comparison with pediatric pneumonia without H1N1 2009 infection
Correlations between cytokine levels and clinical/laboratory findings in pediatric patients with pandemic influenza H1N1 2009 virus infection‐pneumonia and in children with pneumonia but without H 1N1 infection are examined. Expand
The potential for QT prolongation by antiepileptic drugs in children.
Major antiepileptic drugs may not precipitate prolongation of the QT interval into sudden unexpected death in children with epilepsy, however further studies are required. Expand
Infliximab Treatment for Intravenous Immunoglobulin-resistant Kawasaki Disease: a Multicenter Study in Korea
It is suggested that the early administration of infliximab may reduce the incidence of significant CAA in patients with IVIG-resistant KD, and further prospective randomized studies with larger sample sizes are required. Expand
Predictors of nonresponse to intravenous immunoglobulin therapy in Kawasaki disease
Elevated ALT and total bilirubin levels might be useful in predicting nonresponse to IVIG therapy in children with Kawasaki disease, according to two independent predictors confirmed through multivariate logistic regression analysis. Expand
Acute Kidney Injury after Using Contrast during Cardiac Catheterization in Children with Heart Disease
Urine L-FABP can be one of the useful biomarkers to detect subclinical AKI developed by the contrast before cardiac surgery, according to the clinical usefulness of candidate biomarkers in AKI. Expand
Surgical Repair of Giant Right Atrial Aneurysm in a Neonate
Histopathological examination of the resected atiral tissue showed a lipotomatous degeneration and reduction of the muscular elements in the right atrial aneurysm case. Expand
Comparison between Kawasaki disease with lymph-node-first presentation and Kawasaki disease without cervical lymphadenopathy
KD should be suspected in children who are unresponsive to antibiotics and have prolonged fever and cervical lymphadenopathy, which indicates that KD is associated with the likelihood of requiring second-line treatment and risk of developing coronary artery dilatation. Expand
Molecular screening for fragile X syndrome in mentally handicapped children in Korea.
Fragile X syndrome is one of the most common forms of inherited mental retardation and is caused by the expansion of the CGG trinucleotide repeats in the FMR-1 gene. This study was aimed toExpand
