1. The clearance of a tracer dose of [14C]bilirubin from the plasma was studied in patients with Gilberts syndrome, congenital non-haemolytic jaundice, haemolytic jaundice and in normal subjects. Clearance was significantly impaired in the patients with Gilberts syndrome and in those with congenital non-haemolytic jaundice when compared with the normal subjects, and was normal in the patient with haemolytic jaundice.. 2. Treatment for 2 weeks with phenobarbitone (180 mg/day) lowered the plasma bilirubin concentration and improved all indices of plasma clearance of the isotope in patients with Gilberts syndrome, so that they became indistinguishable from those of normal subjects. The improvement in plasma [14C]bilirubin clearance in these patients was associated with modest increases in hepatic bilirubin glucuronyl transferase in some subjects.. 3. Phenobarbitone treatment improved plasma bilirubin concentrations and plasma [14C]bilirubin clearance in patients with congenital non-haemolytic ...
The bilirubin binding panel creates an analog expansion of the current one size fits all BTotal guidelines that are arbitrarily digitalized according to clinical status, birth weight, or gestational age.14,15 It also increases the vascular bilirubin variables available for studies attempting to link adverse outcomes with brain bilirubin exposure.25-27,47 As with any clinical laboratory test, the bilirubin binding panel must be interpreted in the context of the clinical circumstances. Poor bilirubin binding will have little clinical impact if bilirubin accumulation is minimal,2 and excellent bilirubin binding may not prevent kernicterus when excessive bilirubin accumulation is present.29. Although several methods for measuring the various bilirubin binding components have been published over the years,18,48-56 bilirubin binding has never been packaged as a panel, as outlined in this review. The most widely used bilirubin binding test is the peroxidase test for measuring BTotal and BFree as ...
OBJECTIVE: The recognition, follow-up, and early treatment of neonatal jaundice has become more difficult, since the earlier discharge of newborns from hospitals has become common practice. This prospective study was undertaken to identify the newborns at risk for developing significant hyperbilirubinemia later during the first days of life by measuring the serum bilirubin levels of the first 5 days of life to determine the critical predictive serum bilirubin value on the first day of life.. METHODOLOGY: A total of 498 healthy term newborns were followed with daily serum total bilirubin measurements for the first 5 days of life, and cases with serum bilirubin levels of ,/=17 mg/dL after 24 hours of life were defined to have significant hyperbilirubinemia.. RESULTS: No newborns had a serum total bilirubin level of ,/=17 mg/dL in the first 72 hours of life. Sixty of 498 cases (12.05%) had significant hyperbilirubinemia after 72 hours of life, and these cases had significantly higher bilirubin ...
In a large nationally representative cohort, we found an independent association between increasing concentration of serum total bilirubin and decreasing prevalence of PAD. We did not find evidence that this association is dependent on bilirubin levels beyond the reference range, on the presence of liver disease, or on alcohol intake. These data, together with evidence from experimental atherosclerosis, are consistent with the hypothesis that bilirubin is an endogenous protectant mechanism against PAD.. Inflammation and oxidative stress are essential to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.9-11 Bilirubin is a antioxidant under physiological conditions and suppresses inflammation in the vasculature.1,7 Additionally, bilirubin functions as a cytoprotectant.6 These properties appear to allow bilirubin to inhibit multiple steps in atherogenesis. Bilirubin inhibits inflammatory cytokine-induced endothelial cell expression of vascular cell adhesion molecule (VCAM)-1,7 an initial step in ...
Background: Although nondipper hypertension has been associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, the relationship between bilirubin levels and nondipper hypertension remains unclear. Several studies have demonstrated that higher serum bilirubin levels inhibit inflammation and the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, which may suggest a relationship between serum bilirubin levels and cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to compare serum bilirubin levels between dipper and nondipper hypertensive patients. Methods: The present study included 80 hypertensive patients who were stratified into two groups: 50 dipper patients (mean [± SD] age 51.5 ± 8 years; 29 male) and 30 nondipper patients (mean age 50.6 ± 5.4 years; 17 male). All patients underwent 24 h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Results: No statistically significant differences were found between the two groups in terms of basic characteristics.

Direct Bilirubin L-Type Assay is an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test for the quantitative determination of Direct Bilirubin (D-BIL) in serum and plasma.. In human blood, bilirubin exists in two forms. Unconjugated (indirect) bilirubin is transported to the liver bound by albumin where it is conjugated with glucuronic acid and excreted as direct bilirubin. Elevated serum bilirubin is indicative of impairment of the liver. The increase in total bilirubin, associated with obstructive jaundice, is primarily due to the direct bilirubin.. Direct Bilirubin L-Type Assay is a liquid type reagent that is based on a chemical oxidation method utilizing vanadate as an oxidizing agent (vanadate oxidation method).. Reagent 1, Reagent 2 and a calibrator are required for this assay.. All reagents and calibrators are CE-certified according to Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro diagnostic medical devices.. ...

N2 - Hepatocytic transport of physiological concentrations of unconjugated bilirubin (UCB) has not been determined in isolated liver cells. Initial uptake of highly purified [3H]UCB was measured in rat hepatocytes in the presence of human serum albumin at various free, unbound UCB concentrations, [UCB]. At [UCB]=42 nM (below aqueous solubility of 70 nM), uptake was strictly temperature dependent; this was much less evident at [UCB]=166 nM (supersaturated). At low, physiological UCB concentrations, specific UCB uptake showed saturative kinetics with an apparent K(m) of 41 nM, indicating carrier-mediated transport. With aqueous supersaturation, UCB entered hepatocytes mainly by passive ...
Objective. The management of nonhemolytic hyperbilirubinemia in term newborns is controversial. To evaluate the usefulness of serum unbound bilirubin concentrations (UBCs) in the management of hyperbilirubinemia, we compared the concentrations with abnormal auditory brainstem responses (ABRs).. Methods. ABRs and serum UBCs in 37 hyperbilirubinemic term newborns (total bilirubin concentrations [TBCs] ≥20 mg/dL and direct bilirubin concentrations ,2 mg/dL) were measured before treatment with either phototherapy or exchange transfusions. Eight of these newborns had blood incompatibilities. These hyperbilirubinemic newborns were divided into three groups according to the findings of ABR: group A, normal ABR (n = 18); group B, prolonged latency of wave I only (n = 8); and group C, prolonged interpeak latency of wave I-III/I-V and/or poor amplitude (n = 11).. Results. The peak TBC was significantly different between groups A and C (22.8 ± 2.2 mg/dL and 25.4 ± 2.5 mg/dL, respectively; P , .05), ...
The heme degradation pathway continues to be conserved throughout phylogeny and permits removing a pro-oxidant as well as the generation of unique substances including bile pigments with important cellular functions. top serum bilirubin concentrations above 20?mg/dL nevertheless predict poor final result, many newborns lacking any obvious hemolytic etiology because of their jaundice are normal in serum bilirubin concentrations of 25?mg/dL or more. Looking as of this even more carefully, 8% of newborns with Rh-associated hemolysis and serum bilirubin concentrations of 19C24?mg/dL had kernicterus whereas this problem was seen in 73% of newborns with concentrations of 30C40?mg/dL demonstrating VX-809 the dosage aftereffect of bilirubin, in least in hemolytic kids. Bilirubin enters the mind and goals the basal ganglia (Johnston and Hoon, 2000) as well as the auditory nerve preferentially (Shapiro and Nakamura, 2001).

TY - JOUR. T1 - Bilirubin, renal hemodynamics, and blood pressure. AU - Stec, David E.. AU - Hosick, Peter A.. AU - Granger, Joey P.. PY - 2012/9/13. Y1 - 2012/9/13. N2 - Bilirubin is generated from the breakdown of heme by heme oxygenase and the reduction of biliverdin by the enzyme biliverdin reductase. Several large population studies have reported a significant inverse correlation between plasma bilirubin levels and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Protection from cardiovascular disease is also observed in patients with Gilberts syndrome which is a disease characterized by mutations in hepatic UGT1A1, the enzyme responsible for the conjugation of bilirubin into the bile. Despite the strong correlation between plasma bilirubin levels and the protection from cardiovascular disease, the mechanism by which increases in plasma bilirubin acts to protect against cardiovascular disease is unknown. Since the chronic antihypertensive actions of bilirubin are likely due to its renal actions, ...
Cause of elevated bilirubin - What is the cause of elevated bilirubin in young man, more than 2 years? Bilirubin is 31 (norm |17)no gilbert syndrome Many possible causes.. . ranging from problems with the gallbladder or bile duct to liver problems to problems with metabolism. If you know that Gilbert syndrome is not present, you must have seen a physician about this in the past. If a diagnosis still has not been made, I would ask to see a hepatologist for more definitive testing. Good luck.
Category : CLINICAL CHEMISTRY. Test Name : BILIRUBIN (Direct, Indirect or Total). Description : A bilirubin test measures the amount of bilirubin in a blood sample. Bilirubin is a brownish yellow substance found in bile. It is produced when the liver breaks down old red blood cells. Bilirubin is then removed from the body through the stool (feces) and gives stool its normal brown color.. Bilirubin circulates in the bloodstream in two forms:. Indirect (or unconjugated) bilirubin. This form of bilirubin does not dissolve in water (it is insoluble). Indirect bilirubin travels through the bloodstream to the liver, where it is changed into a soluble form (direct or conjugated).. Direct (or conjugated) bilirubin. Direct bilirubin dissolves in water (it is soluble) and is made by the liver from indirect bilirubin.. Direct bilirubin dissolves in water (it is soluble) and is made by the liver from indirect bilirubin.. When bilirubin levels are high, the skin and sclera (white parts of the eye) may appear ...
Icterus (or jaundice) is defined as the clinical state in which hyperbilirubinemia is detectable as a yellowish discoloration of the plasma or soft tissues. Icterus results when the rate of bilirubin production exceeds its rate of elimination. The intensity and distribution of tissue bile pigment staining depends on 4 factors: 1) the total serum bilirubin concentration; 2) the form of bilirubin (unconjugated or conjugated); 3) capillary perfusion and the ability to detect a yellow hue through normal pink mucous membranes; and 4) tissue composition, i.e., tissue high in fat is predisposed to deposition of lipid soluble unconjugated bilirubin while tissue high in elastic fibers, such as sclera and skin, is predisposed to deposition of water soluble conjugated bilirubin.. BILIRUBIN METABOLISM. The bulk of bilirubin (approximately 80%) is produced as a result of the breakdown of senescent red cells. The remainder comes from catabolism of other pigments (e.g., cytochromes and catalases, particularly ...

Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Singh on direct to indirect bilirubin ratio: A relatively large portion of the population has something called gilberts, which is completely harmless, and causes elevated indirect bilirubin in times of stress or illness. If you are completely healthy and just have an elevated indirect bilirubin from time to time, it is almost certainly gilberts. Ask your doctor what he/she thinks.
In the liver, bilirubin is conjugated with glucuronic acid by the enzyme glucuronyltransferase, making it soluble in water: the conjugated version is the main form of bilirubin present in the direct bilirubin fraction. Much of it goes into the bile and thus out into the small intestine. Though most bile acid is reabsorbed in the terminal ileum to participate in enterohepatic circulation, conjugated bilirubin is not absorbed and instead passes into the colon.[9]. There, colonic bacteria deconjugate and metabolize the bilirubin into colorless urobilinogen, which can be oxidized to form urobilin and stercobilin. Urobilin is excreted by the kidneys to give urine its yellow color and stercobilin is excreted in the faeces giving stool its characteristic brown color. A trace (~1%) of the urobilinogen is reabsorbed into the enterohepatic circulation to be re-excreted in the bile.[10]. Although the terms direct and indirect bilirubin are used equivalently with conjugated and unconjugated bilirubin, ...
At the 19th Annual Conference of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), lymphoma expert and NCCN Panel Chair on Lymphoma, Andrew D. Zelenetz, MD, PhD, fielded questions from oncologists. The ASCO Post was there to capture his recommendations for a common clinical scenario-treating the elderly patient with elevated bilirubin. Dr. Zelenetz is Vice Chair of the Department of Medicine and former Chief of the Lymphoma Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.. Clinical Scenario. The patient is an 80-year-old who presented with monoclonal gammopathy. At 3 months follow-up, he had weight loss and jaundice, with splenic and liver lesions, a bilirubin of 10 mg/dL and climbing, and an ejection fraction of 40%. The biopsy revealed large cell lymphoma that was CD20-positive. How would you treat this patient? For the older patient with elevated bilirubin, you have a few good options, some of them rather surprising, Dr. Zelenetz said.. The obvious option, which is easy, he ...

Bilirubin is a potent antioxidant and higher serum bilirubin levels have been associated with improved COPD outcomes. We performed a systematic review to evaluate the association between serum bilirubin levels and lung function (FEV1), prevalence/incidence of COPD, acute exacerbations of COPD, respiratory health status, and mortality. MEDLINE® and Embase were searched using Ovid® (search updated October 1st, 2019). We included studies that measured serum bilirubin levels and outcomes of interest in adults with or without underlying lung disease. We excluded studies of those with liver disease or drug-induced elevations in bilirubin. We used the Newcastle-Ottawa scale to assess individual study risk of bias (ROB) and the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality-Evidence Based Practice tool to assess overall strength of evidence (SOE). Two authors independently determined eligibility, performed data abstraction, assessed ROB, and determined SOE. Thirteen studies (5 low risk of bias, 3 moderate and
Vanadate oxidation The bilirubin is oxidized by vanadate at about pH 3 to produce biliverdin. In the presence of the detergent and the vanadate, both conjugated (direct) and unconjugated bilirubin are oxidized. This oxidation reaction causes the decrease in the optical density of the yellow color, which is specific to bilirubin. The decrease in optical density at 451 nm is proportional to the total bilirubin concentration in the sample.(Metoden tatt i bruk: 5/1-06 ...
Bilirubin is one of the most commonly used tests to assess liver function. Approximately 85% of the total bilirubin produced is derived from the heme moiety of hemoglobin, while the remaining 15% is produced from RBC precursors destroyed in the bone marrow and from the catabolism of other heme-containing proteins. After production in peripheral tissues, bilirubin is rapidly taken up by hepatocytes where it is conjugated with glucuronic acid to produce bilirubin mono- and diglucuronide, which are then excreted in the bile.. A number of inherited and acquired diseases affect one or more of the steps involved in the production, uptake, storage, metabolism, and excretion of bilirubin. Bilirubinemia is frequently a direct result of these disturbances.. The most commonly occurring form of unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia is that seen in newborns and referred to as physiological jaundice.. The increased production of bilirubin, that accompanies the premature breakdown of erythrocytes and ineffective ...

Jaundice in the newborn Pale stools and a plasma conjugated bilirubin level greater than 30 ␮mol/l suggest the possibility of hepatitis or atresia of the bile ducts, and the advice of a paediatrician is needed. If there is a suspicion that the jaundice is related to breastfeeding, the other conditions causing jaundice should be excluded and the mother advised to continue breastfeeding. If the plasma bilirubin concentration is rising rapidly and breastfeeding is stopped for 48 hours, the infants plasma bilirubin concentration will fall abruptly and will not usually rise on return to breastfeeding. Although about 10% of mothers are colonised and about 25% of their infants acquire this organism, only one in 1000 infants has symptoms. About half of those with symptoms die. In the early onset type, which occurs in the first few days of life, there may be a persistently raised respiratory rate followed by the vague features of septicaemia and later peripheral cyanosis. The chest radiograph may show ...
Bilirubin diglucuronide is a conjugated form of bilirubin formed in bilirubin metabolism. The hydrophilic character of bilirubin diglucuronide enables it to be water-soluble.

What is the purpose of this test: Total bilirubin and conjugated bilirubin (direct) is measured to diagnose and monitor hepatobiliary disorders. How to prepare: A simple blood sample is taken. Dietary restrictions are not necessary. Target values: Total bilirubin: Conjugated bilirubin: 0 to 3.4 mcmol/L Newborns have higher levels of bilirubin, especially when they are premature. Associated tests: In most cases, conjugated hyperbilirubinemia is associated with abnormal liver function. A semi-quantitative measurement of bilirubinuria (presence of bilirubin in urine) is used to highlight conjugated hyperbilirubinemia and to closely monitor related disorders. - RemedysRx
We used an enzymatic method for measuring total bilirubin in serum. Results by this method varied linearly with bilirubin concentrations to at least 300 mg/L. The day-to-day precision (CV) of the method ranged from less than 1% to about 11% at bilirubin concentrations of 183 and 12 mg/L, respectively. Commonly used anticoagulants, serum preparation materials, and selected drugs had no effect on the apparent bilirubin concentration, but turbidity caused a slight increase and hemoglobin concentrations of 2 g/L resulted in lower values, by as much as 17 mg/L at a bilirubin concentration of 95 mg/L. Patients results obtained with this enzymatic method were slightly lower than those obtained with methods based on the Jendrassik-Grof principle. The largest differences, seen in samples with high direct bilirubin concentrations, can be decreased by measuring the absorbance at 425 nm instead of at 465 nm as recommended by the supplier of the bilirubin oxidase method.. ...

Bilirubin, resulting largely from the turnover of hemoglobin, is found in the plasma in two main forms: unconjugated or conjugated with glucuronic acid. Unconjugated bilirubin is transported into hepatocytes. There, it is glucuronidated by UGT1A1 and secreted into the bile canaliculi. We report a genome wide association scan in 4300 Sardinian individuals for total serum bilirubin levels. In addition to the two known loci previously involved in the regulation of bilirubin levels, UGT1A1 (P = 6.2 x 10-62) and G6PD (P = 2.5 x 10-8), we observed a strong association on chromosome 12 within the SLCO1B3 gene (P = 3.9 x 10-9). Our findings were replicated in an independent sample of 1860 Sardinians and in 832 subjects from the Old Order Amish (combined P , 5 x 10-14). We also show that SLC01B3 variants contribute to idiopathic mild unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Thus, SLC01B3 appears to be involved in the regulation of serum bilirubin levels in healthy individuals and in some bilirubin-related ...
My daughter was born 2 weeks before the expected delivery date. She weighed 3 kg. After a few days, I noticed a slight yellow colour in her skin. Phototherapy was done for half an hour but was discontinued as the doctor asked us to wait for the blood test result. Blood test revealed a bilirubin level of 15. After 2 days, phototherapy was done 4-5 times for 30 minutes each. |b|Blood test on the next day showed a bilirubin level of 23.5 and baby was shifted to NICU for continuous phototherapy|/b|. Her haemoglobin was 21 and her weight had come down to 2.6 kg from 3 kg. That night the yellow colour increased further. From one NICU staff I came to know that her bilirubin had reached 27 but I am not too sure. Hospital authorities say that they did not do blood transfusion as the baby was active and Hb was 21. Baby was sucking milk. But she slept off while sucking. Her bilirubin came down to 17.4. Now her bilirubin is 14.5. She is active now, sucking milk. There is a little bit of yellow colour in the body

Competitive inhibitors of heme oxygenase (HO) have been studied as interventional agents for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Several naturally occurring and synthetic metalloporphyrins have been shown to be potent inhibitors of HO activity and effective in reducing bilirubin concentrations in vitro and in vivo. Targeting HO may aid in preventing hyperbilirubinemia in newborns. Tin mesoporphyrin (SnMP) has emerged as a potential agent for reducing total bilirubin concentrations in preterm newborns. Adverse effects associated with SnMP use include photosensitization (which complicates its use in conjunction with phototherapy), and potential inhibition of several other enzymes that have essential roles in metabolism. Clinical studies of SnMP have shown that it prevents excessive neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and reduces the need for neonatal phototherapy in term and near-term infants. Because further research, specifically safety investigations, are complicated, use of SnMP should be reserved for ...

Bilirubin is formed in the reticuloendothelial system during the degradation of aged erythrocytes. The heme portion from hemoglobin and from other-containing proteins is removed, metabolized to bilirubin, and transported as a complex with serum albumin to the liver. This process accounts for about 80% of bilirubin formed daily.. Other sources of bilirubin include the breakdown of myoglobin and cytochromes and the catabolism of immature red cells in the bone marrow. In the liver, bilirubin is conjugated with glucuronic acid for solubilization to form conjugated or direct bilirubin for subsequent transport through the bile duct into the digestive tract where it is metabolized by bacteria to a group of products collectively known as stercobilinogen.. Total bilirubin is the sum of the conjugated and unconjugated fractions. Pre-hepatic diseases or conditions such as hemolytic disease or liver diseases resulting in impaired entry, transport or conjugation within the liver cause elevation of ...
Hemoglobin released from red blood cells is broken down into heme, and reduced to unconjugated (indirect) bilirubin which is then bound to serum albumin. Unconjugated bilirubin is converted to water-soluble conjugated (direct) bilirubin in the liver and stored in the gallbladder as bile. Bile is released into the intestines to assist in digestion and cholesterol metabolism as well as absorption of lipids and fat-soluble vitamins. Hyperbilirubinemia can be due to an increase in either unconjugated bilirubin or conjugated bilirubin levels. Conditions causing increased red blood cell destruction or decreased conjugation lead to unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Conditions that impair secretion of bile from liver or gallbladder result in conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. ...
The fixed phagocytic cells of the spleen and bone marrow destroy old red blood cells and convert the heme groups of hemoglobin to the pigment bilirubin. The bilirubin is secreted into the blood and carried to the liver where it is bonded to (conjugated with) glucuronic acid, a derivative of glucose. Some of the conjugated bilirubin is secreted into the blood and the rest is excreted in the bile as bile pigment that passes into the small intestine. The blood normally contains a small amount of free and conjugated bilirubin. Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?
Bilirubin is a bile pigment that is a degradation product of heme. In particular, bilirubin is a yellow breakdown product of normal heme catabolism. Its levels are elevated in certain diseases and it is responsible for the yellow color of bruises. Bilirubin is an excretion product, and the body does not control levels. Bilirubin levels reflect the balance between production and excretion. Thus, there is no normal level of bilirubin. Bilirubin consists of an open chain of four pyrroles (tetrapyrrole); by contrast, the heme molecule is a closed ring of four pyrroles, called porphyrin. -- Wikipedia ...

AIM To investigate the effect of anaesthetic agents on transcutaneous bilirubin levels during the first 24 h in neonates delivered by caesarean section. METHODS A total of 168 neonates delivered by caesarean section, during which sevoflurane was used for general anaesthesia (group A), bupivacaine for spinal anaesthesia (group B), levobupivacaine for epidural anaesthesia (group C) and 155 neonates delivered vaginally were included in the study. Transcutaneous bilirubin levels (TBLs) of infants were measured during the first 24 h and compared with each other. RESULTS The TBLs in neonates delivered vaginally were higher than those delivered by caesarean section, but the difference was not significant. TBLs were higher in groups A and C than in group B (p = 0.034, p = 0.011 respectively). TBLs were higher in group C than in group A, but the difference was not significant (p | 0.05). When the groups were compared with vaginal delivery group, TBLs in groups A and C were found higher (p = 0.03, p = 0.022
Bilirubin is the product that is formed from further breakdown of heme. As a waste product, bilirubin is secreted into bile and is also what gives urine its yellow color. Additionally, yellow bruises obtain their color also from bilirubin in a condition called jaundice. Since bilirubin is a breakdown from hemoglobin, it is generated in large quantities as red blood cells undergo turnover. Phagocytes then absorb the dead red blood cells where it is converted into free bilirubin and then released into plasma and eventually absorbed by liver cells. Finally, bacteria in the intestine metabolizes bilirubin where it is eliminated as urine or feces, which is also one of the reasons for its brown color.. ...
1. In all the cases of bilirubinaemia examined, whether the animals suffered from canine piroplasmosis or hepatic disturbances abnormal amounts of bilirubin were excreted in the urines. 2. Haemoglobin was frequently present in the urine of dogs suffering from piroplasmosis. The highest concentration of haemoglobin found was 799 mg. per 100 c.c. urine. No haemoglobin could be detected in the urines of dogs suffering from hepatic disturbances. 3. The plasma bilirubin of the piroplasmosis cases gave an indirect v. d. Bergh reaction whereas that of the hepatic disturbance cases gave the direct reaction with the v. d. Bergh reagent. The highest plasma bilirubin figure obtained was 53 v. d. Bergh units in a case of canine piroplasmosis. 4. In the piroplasmosis cases an increase in bilirubin was accompanied by a decrease in haemoglobin in the blood, whereas in the hepatic disturbance cases there was no decrease of the blood haemoglobin, the bilirubin in the plasma being due to retention and not to ...
Bilirubin is a strong antioxidant. Increased serum levels were associated with respiratory disease and mortality risk. We studied the association of bilirubin with lung function in the SAPALDIA cohort.Associations between natural logarithmized bilirubin and forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), FEV1/FVC, and mean forced expiratory flow between 25%-75% of FVC (FEF25-75) were tested using multiple linear regression in the whole study population (n=4195) and strata of ever smoking and high body mass index (BMI, defined by the highest distribution quartile). Associations were retested with single nucleotide polymorphism rs6742078, a genetic determinant of bilirubin.High bilirubin levels were significantly associated with higher FEV1/FVC and FEF25-75 overall. Upon stratification, significant associations persisted in ever smokers, amounting to 1.1 percent (95%-confidence interval 0.1 to 2.2) increase in FEV1/FVC, and 116.2 mL·sec(-1) (-15.9 to 248.4) in ...
Bilirubin is a degradation product of haem, which is constantly formed in all. mammals. Increased levels of bilirubin in humans lead to jaundice, a condition. that is very common during the first days after birth. This neonatal. jaundice can routinely be treated by phototherapy without any serious side. effects. During this treatment, bilirubin undergoes a photoreaction to isomers. that can be excreted. The most efficient photoreaction is the isomerisation. around a double bond (Z-E-isomerisation), which results in more soluble. photoproducts.. The work presented in this thesis shows results of a femtosecond optical. spectroscopy study, combined with quantum-mechanical investigations, of. the mechanism of isomerisation of bilirubin. The spectroscopic research was. conducted with bilirubin in organic solvents, and in buffer complexed by. human serum albumin. This albumin complex is present in the blood, and. has thus medical importance. Quantum-chemical calculations (CASSCF) on. a bilirubin model ...
The major enzyme in charge of the glucuronidation of bilirubin may be the uridine 5-diphosphoglucose glucuronosyltransferase A1 (UGT1A1) enzyme, and genetic variation within the UGT1A1 gene is reported to influence the bilirubin concentration within the blood. chosen UGT1A1 variations. However, in stepwise multivariate logistic regression evaluation of most hereditary variations with age group collectively, sex, nation of source and fasting period, the repeat variations of UGT1A1 TA6>TA7 and SLCO1B3 rs2117032 T>C had been the only variations XRCC9 significantly connected with higher bilirubin concentrations. Many people with high bilirubin amounts had been homozygous for the TA7-do it again 590-46-5 IC50 (74%) while just 3% had been homozygous for the TA7-do it again in people with regular bilirubin amounts. Among people heterozygous for the TA7-do it again, a low frequent UGT1A1-diplotype harboring the rs7564935 G-variant was associated with higher bilirubin levels. In conclusion, our results ...
Methods A total of 140 full-term normal newborns were enrolled in a prospective study at Siriraj Hospital. For each newborn, the serum bilirubin level was determined at age 24 h. The newborns were followed up for the development of severe hyperbilirubinemia until discharge. The cut-off point of the serum bilirubin level at 24 h was ,7.5 mg/dl. Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values and accuracy of bilirubin levels at age 24 h in the diagnosis of severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia were determined. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Polyacrylate guanidine and polymethacrylate guanidine as novel cationic polymers for effective bilirubin binding. AU - Timin, Alexander S.. AU - Solomonov, Alexey V.. AU - Rumyantsev, Evgeniy V.. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - The effect of polycationic polymers of polyacrylate guanidine (PAG) and polymethacrylate guanidine (PMAG) on bilirubin absorbance were studied in phosphate buffer (pH 7.4). It was shown that the change in absorbance spectra of bilirubin in the presence of PAG/PMAG can be associated with the formation of a bilirubin-polymer complex and dissociation of tetramers on bilirubin monomers. Also, the organicinorganic composite materials based on silica gels and guanidine polymers were synthesized via the sol-gel technique. The incorporated guanidine polymers have a big influence on particle size distribution of silica gel due to their high crosslinking ability. The infrared spectroscopy revealed the presence of guanidine polymers inside solid networks of silica gel. ...
As the heme pathway plays an important role against oxidative stress, uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyl-transferase 1-1 (UGT1A1) gene polymorphisms might be expected to protect against oxidative stress-induced cancer initiation.3 Congenital underexpression of hepatic UGT1A1 causes mild chronic unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia, known as Gilberts syndrome, GS. Individuals with GS have mildly raised total bilirubin concentrations in the blood (,17 µmol/L) with normal serum activities of liver transaminases, biliary damage markers and red blood cell counts.4 The frequency of the Gilberts polymorphism is 30%-45%, however, phenotypic hyperbilirubinaemia is estimated to be 5%-10% in Caucasians.5 6 A remarkable body of evidence from experimental and clinical studies has demonstrated that bilirubin has substantial anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties.4 The hypothesis that genetically raised bilirubin plays a role in lung … ...

AU - Silva, Rui F M. AU - Sasaki, Hiroyuki. AU - Kim, Kwang Sik. AU - Brites, Dora. AU - Brito, Maria A.. PY - 2015. Y1 - 2015. N2 - Ursodeoxycholic acid and its main conjugate glycoursodeoxycholic acid are bile acids with neuroprotective properties. Our previous studies demonstrated their anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in neural cells exposed to elevated levels of unconjugated bilirubin as in severe jaundice. In a simplified model of the blood-brain barrier, formed by confluent monolayers of a cell line of human brain microvascular endothelial cells, unconjugated bilirubin has shown to induce caspase-3 activation and cell death, as well as interleukin-6 release and a loss of blood-brain barrier integrity. Here we tested the preventive and restorative effects of these ...

Little is known regarding myocardial stress resistance in hyperbilirubinaemic conditions or whether life-long exposure modifies cardiac function, which might contribute to protection from cardiovascular disease. Methods: Hyperbilirubinaemic rats and littermate controls underwent echocardiography at 3, 6 and 12 months of age, with hearts subsequently assessed for resistance to 30 min of ischaemia. Heart tissue was then collected for assessment of bilirubin content. Results: No difference in baseline cardiac function was evident until 6 months onwards, where Gunn rats demonstrated aortic ...
In enzymology, a bilirubin oxidase (EC 1.3.3.5) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction 2 bilirubin + O2 ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } 2 biliverdin + 2 H2O Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are bilirubin and O2, whereas its two products are biliverdin and H2O. This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, to be specific those acting on the CH-CH group of donor with oxygen as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is bilirubin:oxygen oxidoreductase. This enzyme is also called bilirubin oxidase M-1. This enzyme participates in porphyrin and chlorophyll metabolism. Two structures of bilirubin oxidase from the ascomycete Myrothecium verrucaria have been deposited in the Protein Data Bank (accession codes 3abg and 2xll). Murao S; Tanaka N (1981).

1. The biliary excretion of total bilirubin and bile acids, and the fate of tracer doses of radioactive sulphated and non-sulphated bile acids, were studied in patients with percutaneous transhepatic bile drainage.. 2. Non-sulphated bile acids were excreted in bile early after biliary decompression, and the serum total 3α-hydroxy bile acid concentrations fell rapidly to normal. Biliary bilirubin excretion was both less than and delayed compared with that of bile acids, and the serum bilirubin concentration fell more slowly.. 3. The serum disappearance of [3H]chenodeoxycholate-3-sulphate was slower than that of [14C]glycocholate in all patients with bile drainage, the difference being more marked in the jaundiced patients.. 4. The radioactive sulphated bile acids were recovered predominantly in the urine of the jaundiced patients. In contrast [14C]glycocholate was excreted almost exclusively in bile. In an anicteric patient, radioactive sulphated bile acid disappeared from the serum more ...
Neonates with jaundice require monitoring of serum bilirubin which should be repeated at frequent intervals. However, taking blood samples from neonates is not always an easy job, plus being an invasive and traumatising procedure with the additional risk of blood loss. In this paper the authors present the theory and design of a new noninvasive device for transcutaneous bilirubinometry, using a differential absorption laser system. The new technique depends upon illuminating the skin of the neonate with radiation from a two wave-length oscillation laser. The choice of the wavelengths follows the principles of optical bilirubinometry. For obtaining more accurate measurements, different pairs of two wave-lengths are incorporated in the design. The presence of hemoglobin is corrected for by appropriate selection of the laser wavelengths. The new design was tested for accuracy and precision using an argon ion laser. Correlation study between serum bilirubin determination by laser transcutaneous ...
About 60% of full-term infants and 80% of preterm infants will develop jaundice as a result of hyperbilirubinemia (elevated bilirubin).
Increased serum levels of unconjugated bilirubin are associated with the development of brain damage in newborns. performance of the UnaG assay was unaffected by phototherapy and the presence of serum hemoglobin and lipid emulsion. These results demonstrate the clinical applicability of the UnaG method for direct measurement of unconjugated bilirubin levels in newborn serum. Kernicterus or bilirubin-induced neurologic dysfunction is a brain disorder caused by bilirubin neurotoxicity during the neonatal period1. Not only does this disease show worldwide prevalence, its incidence is increasing in developed countries due to the higher survival rates of extremely preterm infants2,3. Although assessment of total bilirubin (TB) levels in serum/plasma is the current gold standard for identifying newborns at risk of kernicterus4,5, TB level is not the most accurate indicator, because TB includes both unconjugated bilirubin and conjugated bilirubin. Of these NVP-AUY922 fractions, elevated serum level of ...
Direct bilirubin increases in intra or extrahepatic obstruction of the biliary tree, in hepatocellular damage (hepatitis, cirrhosis and cancer in advanced stages), Dubin-Johnson syndrome, Rotor syndrome and due to the administration of drugs that cause cholestasis. Theoretically bilirubin should increase in hemolytic anemias. When there are no complications, increase in bilirubin is expected only for the non conjugated fraction. However, in hemolytic anemias without proven complications, some increase in direct bilirubin may be detected. ...
Schizophrenia is a debilitating and complex mental disorder whose exact etiology remains unknown. There is growing amount of evidence of a relationship between neuroinflammation, as demonstrated by microglial activation, and schizophrenia. Our previous studies have proposed that hyperbilirubinemia plays a role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Furthermore, we suggested the Gunn rat, an animal model of bilirubin encephalopathy, as a possible animal model of schizophrenia. However, the effects of unconjugated bilirubin on microglia, the resident immune cell of the CNS, in Gunn rats have never been investigated. In the present study, we examined how microglial cells respond to bilirubin toxicity in adult Gunn rats. Using immunohistochemical techniques, we compared the distribution, morphology, and ultrastructural features of microglial cells in Gunn rats with Wistar rats as a normal control. We also determined the ratio of activated and resting microglia and observed microglia-neuron interactions.

Three small studies, enrolling a total of 170 infants, were eligible for inclusion in this review. None blinded intervention or outcome assessment. In all three studies some patients were excluded after randomization. Metalloporphyrin-treated infants appeared to have short-term benefits compared to controls, including a lower maximum plasma bilirubin level in one study, a lower frequency of severe hyperbilirubinemia in one study, a decreased need for phototherapy, fewer plasma bilirubin measurements and a shorter duration of hospitalization. None of the enrolled infants required an exchange transfusion in the two studies that described this outcome. None of the studies reported on neonatal kernicterus, death, long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes or iron deficiency anemia. Though a small number of metalloporphyrin-treated as well as control infants developed a photosensitivity rash, the trials were too small to rule out an increase in the risk of photosensitivity or other adverse effects from ...
NIH Rare Diseases : 50 crigler najjar syndrome, type 2 is caused by mutations in the ugt1a1 gene. the gene mutation causes the body to be unable to make adequate enzyme to convert bilirubin into a form that can easily be removed from the body. without this enzyme, bilirubin can build up in the body and lead to extraordinarily yellow skin and eyes (jaundice). this condition is less severe than the type 1 form, however the severity of type ii can vary greatly. almost all patients with crigler najjar syndrome, type 2 develop normally, but there is a risk for some neurologic damage from kernicterus (bilirubin accumulation in the brain). in general people with type 2 crigler najjar syndrome have serum bilirubin levels ranging from 20 to 45 mg/dl. phenobarbital treatment is the standard therapy for this condition and can often help to drastically reduce the bilirubin levels. last updated: 1/19/2011 ...
Abstract: The effects of the essential oil from Tagetes minuta leaves at 125, 250, 375 and 500 μL kg-1 b.wt. on some biochemical parameters of Wistar rats were studied. There was no significant difference in packed cell volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, monocytes, lymphocytes, eosinophils, basophils, serum alanine transaminase, liver and kidney body weight ratios. However, the 125 μL kg-1 b.wt. resulted in significant decrease in red blood cell and hemoglobin, whereas the same dose produced increase in mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, neutrophils and large unstained cell. Sodium, inorganic phosphorus, conjugated bilirubin, albumin, globulin and total protein at all the doses were not affected while potassium, chloride, urea, creatinine and total bilirubin concentration were increased at certain doses. Whereas the activity of serum gamma glutamyl transferase was significantly increased at all the doses, those of serum aspartate transaminase were increased ...

Hypothyroidism was induced in Marwari adult sheep (9 rams) by thiourea feeding (@ 50 mg/kg body weight). The blood samples were collected and analysed on 0 (control), 3rd, 5th and 7th day of thiourea feeding. The investigation was carried out to study the effects of induced hypothyroidism on plasma cholesterol and billirubin in Marwari sheep. Plasma cholesterol showed a non-significant (P > 0.05) effect of induced hypothyroidism however, it increased gradually with the subsequent phases of induced hypothyroidism. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) indicated a significant (P?0.01) increase in plasma bilirubin concentration during different phases of induced hypothyroidism in our study. Thus, Hypercholesterolemia and Hyperbilirubinemia are the salient clinical and biochemical features of induced hypothyroidism.. Key words: Hypothyroidism, Sheep, Cholesterol, Plasma ...
Kernicterus is a rare but serious complication of untreated jaundice in babies. Its caused by excess bilirubin damaging the brain or central nervous system.. In newborn babies with very high levels of bilirubin in the blood (hyperbilirubinaemia), the bilirubin can cross the thin layer of tissue that separates the brain and blood (the blood-brain barrier). The bilirubin can damage the brain and spinal cord, which can be life threatening. Brain damage caused by high levels of bilirubin is also called bilirubin encephalopathy.. Your baby may be at risk of developing kernicterus if:. ...
Results There were 20 adverse events, including five deaths, five ischaemic strokes and 10 rehospitalisations for unstable angina during follow-up. Patients with adverse events had lower baseline serum bilirubin levels (p,0.001). All patients were stratified into high-bilirubin, normal-bilirubin and low-bilirubin groups. The patients in the high-bilirubin group had the lowest incidence of total adverse events (p=0.008) and non-fatal cardiovascular events (p=0.008). In a multivariate Cox regression analysis, serum bilirubin, in addition to age and basal superoxide generation of circulating mononuclear cells, was also an independent predictor of total adverse events (HR 0.002; 95% CI 0.000 to 0.520; p=0.028). ...

Jaundice refers to the yellow appearance of the skin that occurs with the deposition of bilirubin in the dermal and subcutaneous tissue. Normally in the body, bilirubin is processed through the liver, where it is conjugated to glucuronic acid by the enzyme uridine diphosphate glucuronyl transferase (UGT) 1A1. This conjugated form of bilirubin is then excreted into the bile and removed from the body via the gut. When this excretion process is low following birth, does not work efficiently, or is overwhelmed by the amount of endogenously produced bilirubin, the amount of bilirubin in the body increases, resulting in hyperbilirubinemia and jaundice. The effect of light on jaundice in neonates, and the ability of light to decrease serum bilirubin levels, was first described by Cremer et al in 1958.[3] This observation led to the development of light sources for use in the treatment of infants with hyperbilirubinemia, a treatment now referred to as phototherapy. Wallaby 3 Phototherapy System allows a ...

An inherited disorder of bilirubin metabolism in which bilirubin cannot be changed into its water-soluble form, bilirubin glucuronide. This is caused by an enzyme imbalance in the liver.
The objective of this study is to prepare bilirubin-imprinted polymeric particles for the selective removal of bilirubin from hyperbilirubinemic human plasma. N-methacryloyl-(L)-tyrosine methylester (MAT) was chosen as the complexing monomer. In the first step, functional monomer MAT was synthesized by the reaction of L-tyrosine methylester and methacryloyl chloride and characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Bilirubin then was complexed with MAT and the bilirubin-imprinted poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate-N-methacryloyl-(L)-tyrosine methylester) [MIP] was produced by bulk polymerization. The template molecules (i.e., bilirubin) then were removed using sodium carbonate and sodium hydroxide. MIP particles were characterized by elemental analysis, water uptake tests, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Bilirubin adsorption experiments from human plasma were performed in a batch experimental setup. Cholesterol and testosterone were used ...

Hyperbilirubinemia is an adverse reaction of simeprevir (SMV). The majority of these patients were taking concurrent ribavirin presenting elevated unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia due to hemolysis. However, cases of hepatic failure with elevated bilirubin level have also been reported in patients with decompensated cirrhosis. We describe a 51-year-old female patient with HbS beta 0-thalassemia and recently diagnosed compensated cirrhosis due to chronic hepatitis C infection. Laboratory evaluation revealed total bilirubin: 2.7 mg/dL and serum HCV-RNA 137.204 IU/mL. HCV was genotyped as 4. A FibroScan revealed 35.3 kPa. She was considered as illegible for pegylated-interferon-free treatment with direct acting antivirals and a course with simeprevir and sofosbuvir (SOF) combination for twelve weeks was planned. Hyperbilirubinemia developed from the beginning with peak values during the 3rd month of treatment. However, no findings of liver decompensation were noticed. Hyperbilirubinemia was benign ...
Infants with high bilirubin levels are typically treated with phototherapy, which exposes the infant to a special light source that changes the structure of bilirubin so that it can be easily excreted in urine or stool. In more complex or severe cases, a treatment called exchange transfusion may be used, which removes the infants blood and replaces it with blood that is free of bilirubin.. Without treatment, high levels of bilirubin in newborns can become dangerous. Bilirubin is toxic to brain cells, and can cause permanent brain damage-also called kernicterus. Kernicterus can result in hearing loss, intellectual impairment, permanent upward gaze, and involuntary and uncontrolled movements.. In the case mentioned at the beginning of this article, the baby girl developed jaundice while still in the hospital. She received phototherapy, but no follow-up testing was done until two days later, when her mother demanded it. The bilirubin level at the time was three times the normal level. The baby ...
Results 4439 patients entered the medical ICU without a pre-existing GIB and 58 (1.3%) developed GIB while in the ICU. Risk factors included length of ICU stay (OR per additional day 1. 06; 95% CI 1.04 to 1.09) and elevated creatinine on ICU admission (OR 2.35; 95% CI 1.18 to 4.68, p=0.02). Elevated bilirubin on ICU admission (OR 2.08; 95% CI 0.97 to 4.47, p=0.06), and elevated aspartate transaminase (AST) on ICU admission (OR 2.20; 95% CI 0.96 to 5.03, p=0.06) trended towards increased risk of GIB that did not meet statistical significance. Age, gender, admission coagulation studies and mechanical ventilation were not predictive of GIB. Among those patients with new-onset GIB in the ICU, 47% died during that hospitalisation, as compared with those 30% of those without a GIB, p,0.01. ...

Through this study we systematically estimated the number of infants with severe hyperbilirubinemia in Canada and the underlying causes. An estimate of the incidence of severe hyperbilirubinemia in Canada (assuming about 320 000 live births per year) would be 1 in 2480 live births (258 in 640 000 over the 2-year study period).21 It is anticipated that any infant in Canada with a total bilirubin level of more than 425 μmol/L would be referred to a pediatrician or neonatologist. Therefore, using the Canadian birth cohort as a denominator to estimate incidence would be appropriate. Despite a high response rate (the CPSP survey response rates in 2002, 2003 and 2004 were 83%, 83% and 82%)22 and strict case definitions, the estimate of 1 in 2480 live births is likely conservative given that this is based on voluntary reporting.. Since the shortened length of hospital stay for newborns was introduced in the early 1990s, neonatal readmission to hospital has increased. In both Canada and the United ...

Recently, an efficient liver detoxification process dubbed hepatocyte hopping was proposed based on findings with the endogenous compound, bilirubin glucuronide. According to this model, hepatocytic bilirubin glucuronide can follow a liver-to-blood shuttling loop via Abcc3 transporter-mediated efflux and subsequent Oatp1a/1b-mediated liver uptake. We hypothesized that glucuronide conjugates of xenobiotics, such as the anticancer drug sorafenib, can also undergo hepatocyte hopping. Using transporter-deficient mouse models, we show here that sorafenib-glucuronide can be extruded from hepatocytes into the bile by Abcc2 or back into the systemic circulation by Abcc3, and that it can be taken up efficiently again into neighboring hepatocytes by Oatp1a/1b. We further demonstrate that sorafenib-glucuronide excreted into the gut lumen can be cleaved by microbial enzymes to sorafenib which is then reabsorbed, supporting its persistence in the systemic circulation. Our results suggest a broad relevance ...
Babies with jaundice have a yellow coloring of the skin and eyes. This happens when there is too much bilirubin in the babys blood.. Bilirubin (bill-uh-ROO-bin) is a yellow substance that comes from the normal breakdown of red blood cells. The liver removes bilirubin from the blood and passes it into the bowels so it can leave the body.. A newborn babys liver does not remove bilirubin as well as an adults does. Jaundice (JON-diss) happens when bilirubin builds up faster than the liver can break it down and pass it from the body.. Most types of jaundice go away on their own. Others need treatment to lower bilirubin levels.. ...

The key factors in high direct bilirubin are inflammatory, toxic, autoimmune diseases of liver and obstruction of extrahepatic bile ducts
Organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATPs) are uptake transporters for a broad range of endogenous compounds and xenobiotics. To investigate the physiologic and pharmacologic roles of OATPs of the 1A and 1B subfamilies, we generated mice lacking all established and predicted mouse Oatp 1a/1b transporters (referred to as Slco1a/1b(-/-) mice, as SLCO genes encode OATPs). Slco1a/1b(-/-) mice were viable and fertile but exhibited markedly increased plasma levels of bilirubin conjugated to glucuronide and increased plasma levels of unconjugated bile acids. The unexpected conjugated hyperbilirubinemia indicates that Oatp1a/1b transporters normally mediate extensive hepatic reuptake of glucuronidated bilirubin. We therefore hypothesized that substantial sinusoidal secretion and subsequent Oatp1a/1b-mediated reuptake of glucuronidated compounds can occur in hepatocytes under physiologic conditions. This alters our perspective on normal liver functioning. Slco1a/1b(-/-) mice also showed drastically ...
Even within the normal range, higher bilirubin levels appear to be associated with reduced risks of lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and death, a longitudinal, prospective analysis of a large database showed.. For every 0.1-mg/dL increase in bilirubin level, the rate of lung cancer dropped by 8 percent in men and 11 percent in women, according to Laura Horsfall, MSc, of University College London, and colleagues.. In addition, the same incremental increase in bilirubin was associated with a 6 percent decline in the rate of COPD and a 3 percent decline in mortality for both sexes, the researchers reported in the Feb. 16 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.. Based on our findings, bilirubin levels within the normal range appear to capture information about patients that may reflect a combination of environmental and genetically determined susceptibility to respiratory diseases, they wrote.. Most people are familiar with bilirubin because of its role ...
黃疸(英:jaundice、icterus)又稱黃膽,俗稱黃病,是因為體內膽紅素過高,造成皮膚及鞏膜發黃或是發綠的症狀[3][6],一般會伴隨發癢[2]、糞便蒼白及尿液顏色偏深的情形[4]。新生兒黃疸是出生後前三天內出現的黃疸,大部份會自然痊癒,不會造成問題[3][6]。不過若新生兒的膽紅素非常高,或是黃疸時間太長,可能會出現稱為腦核性黃疸(英語:Kernicterus)的腦部損傷[7]。 黃疸有許多的原因,有些不嚴重,有些則可能會致命[8],正常人體血液中膽紅素的濃度會在 1.0 mg/dL(17 µmol/L),一般黃疸患者的膽紅素濃度會超過2-3 mg/dL(34-51 µmol/L)[9][4]。高膽紅素可分為兩種:非結合性膽紅素(unconjugated bilirubin)過高及結合性膽紅素(conjugated ...
