• jaundice
  • This may occasionally lead to yellowing of the eyes (scleral icterus) or jaundice, but in the general population bilirubin elevations have been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that could be associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular or other disease events.

  • Although elevations of bilirubin may occasionally lead to scleral icterus or jaundice, cohort studies of individuals with Gilbert syndrome indicate bilirubin elevations may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and are associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular events.

  • In neonatal jaundice, failure of the liver to process the bilirubin leads to its accumulation in tissues. (sciencephoto.com)
  • levels
  • Elevated levels of unconjugated bilirubin are best characterized among individuals with Gilbert syndrome, which is the most common inherited cause of unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia, present in 3-10% of the general population. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • It results from brain damage by existing high levels of unconjugated-indirect bilirubin. (fpnotebook.com)
