Normal values for serum bilirubin
in adults, using traditional laboratory techniques, are measured in micromoles per litre ([micro]mol/L):
The ones with total bilirubin
less than or equal to 2mg/dl comprised group A, while the ones whose total bilirubin
was more than 2mg/dl was named group B.
The team developed an app called BiliScreen and with a smartphone's camera, it uses computer vision algorithms to detect levels of the chemical bilirubin
in the whites of a person's eyes.
The association between elevated serum bilirubin
levels and infectious diseases has been noted in certain studies.
Neonatal physiologic jaundice can be a result of increased bilirubin
production secondary to accelerated destruction of erythrocytes or decreased excretory capacity secondary to low levels of ligandin which is a binding protein for bilirubin
in hepatocytes and low activity of bilirubin
-conjugating enzyme uridine diphosphoglucuronyltransferase (UDPGT).
BiliScreen uses a smartphone camera, computer vision algorithms and machine learning tools to detect increased bilirubin
levels in a person's sclera, or the white part of the eye.
Research variables were AST/ALT ratio, prothrombin time, platelet conunt, serum albumin and serum bilirubin
5) In some oxidative stress-mediated diseases, serum bilirubin
concentrations are inversely correlated with cardiovascular diseases.
Patients and Methods: All neonates of both gender, having serum indirect bilirubin
>13 mg/dl and born to mothers having O positive blood group who came to the hospital during the study period were enrolled.
Some studies have demonstrated no change in aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT), but a rise in bilirubin
Objective: To compare the mean decrease in serum bilirubin
after intermittent versus continuous phototherapy in the treatment of jaundice neonatorum.
