Description

About 60% to 80% of newborn Infants in the United States are jaundiced, that is they look yellow.

Kernicterus is a form of brain damage caused by excessive jaundice.

The substance which causes jaundice, bilirubin, is so high that it can move out of the blood into brain tissue.

Join Dr. Shapiro as he speaks with Transformational Pediatrics about the diagnosis, treatment and research supporting the pediatric population with kernicterus and other bilirubin-induced neurological disorders.
