The aims of this study were to investigate the prevalence of atopy, asthma, and obesity in university freshmen and to determine whether leptin is associated with bronchodilator reversibility in obesity. A total of 537 university freshmen completed International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Children (ISAAC) questionnaire and underwent skin prick testing(More)
Little is known about the prevalence of naturally acquired IgG antibodies to the capsular polysaccharides of Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcal IgG) in Korea. In the present study, we investigated transplacental transfer and age-related levels of pneumococcal IgG to provide background seroepidemiologic data for S. pneumoniae in Korea. One hundred thirty(More)
