Should transcutaneous bilirubin be measured in preterm infants receiving phototherapy? The relationship between transcutaneous and total serum bilirubin in preterm infants with and without phototherapy.

Our objective was to analyze the relationship between transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) measured on an unexposed area of skin and total serum bilirubin (TSB) in preterm infants before, during, and after ...

Usefulness of transcutaneous bilirubin assessment measured in non-photo-exposed skin to guide the length of phototherapy: an observational study.

Background Transcutaneous bilirubinometers are a non-invasive tool to estimate serum bilirubin. However, once on phototherapy (PHT) and after PHT, its usefulness is precluded. The objective of this st...

How skin anatomy influences transcutaneous bilirubin determinations: an in vitro evaluation.

Transcutaneous bilirubinometry is an effective screening method for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Current transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) meters are designed for the "standard" situation of TcB determin...

Changes in total serum bilirubin during phototherapy in late preterm and term infants with non-haemolytic hyperbilirubinemia.

There is no standardized method for total serum bilirubin (TSB) monitoring during phototherapy for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and national guidelines give heterogeneous indications.

The Lowering of Bilirubin Levels in Full-Term Newborns by the Effect of Combined Massage Therapy and Phototherapy Practice.

 Various therapeutic treatments have been prescribed for decreasing the bilirubin level. Massage therapy is one of the neonate treatments for jaundice. The aim of this study is to investigate the ef...

Validity of Transcutaneous Bilirubin Monitoring in Preterm Infants

The most common and widely accepted method of monitoring bilirubin levels in neonates is the use of the laboratory analyzation of serum blood levels. Unfortunately this method is invasive,...

Transcutaneous Screening for Risk of Severe Hyperbilirubinemia in South African Newborns

In South Africa, healthy term newborns are usually discharged early (

A Genome-Wide Scan For Quantitative Trait Loci of Serum Bilirubin - A Framingham Study

Studies have shown that there is a significant association between serum bilirubin concentrations and risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). So far, no linkage analysis in humans between ...

Serum Bilirubin Levels in Normal-tension Glaucoma

Purpose: To analyze the relationship between normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) and serum bilirubin levels. Materials and Methods: This research included 38 patients with NTG and 38 healthy co...

Point-of-Care System for Determination of Bilirubin Capacity in Neonates

The aims of this project are to validate the performance of the miniaturized and modernized hematofluorometer that measures bilirubin capacity into a product and is suitable for operation ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inborn errors of bilirubin metabolism resulting in excessive amounts of bilirubin in the circulating blood, either because of increased bilirubin production or because of delayed clearance of bilirubin from the blood.

Accumulation of BILIRUBIN, a breakdown product of HEME PROTEINS, in the BLOOD during the first weeks of life. This may lead to NEONATAL JAUNDICE. The excess bilirubin may exist in the unconjugated (indirect) or the conjugated (direct) form. The condition may be self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) or pathological with toxic levels of bilirubin.

A condition characterized by an abnormal increase of BILIRUBIN in the blood, which may result in JAUNDICE. Bilirubin, a breakdown product of HEME, is normally excreted in the BILE or further catabolized before excretion in the urine.

A colorless compound formed in the intestines by the reduction of bilirubin. Some is excreted in the feces where it is oxidized to urobilin. Some is reabsorbed and re-excreted in the bile as bilirubin. At times, it is re-excreted in the urine, where it may be later oxidized to urobilin.

A process that changes the nucleotide sequence of mRNA from that of the DNA template encoding it. Some major classes of RNA editing are as follows: 1, the conversion of cytosine to uracil in mRNA; 2, the addition of variable number of guanines at pre-determined sites; and 3, the addition and deletion of uracils, templated by guide-RNAs (RNA, GUIDE).
