This article presents information related to several studies conducted in the field of pediatric nephrology. Polioma virus is merging as important cause of post renal transplantation renal damage as well as renal loss it became more obvious with anew heavy and aggressive management of postrenal transplantation by immunosuppressive medications. In Korea, HBV vaccine was implemented since 1983 and had an effect on a decline in the incidence of HBV carriage and related hepatic diseases in HBV-endemic area. The chronic carrier rate of school-aged children decreased from 4.8% prior to HBV vaccination to 0.9-2.6% after over-ten-year HBV vaccination in Korea. Another study was conducted to evaluate the immune response to measles vaccination in pediatric chronic renal failure patients.
