    The evidence regarding the association between schizophrenia and the fractions of bilirubin is mixed. In a retrospective case-control design we examined the association between total bilirubin, conjugated bilirubin, unconjugated bilirubin and schizophrenia. The relevance of our findings and that of the association of unconjugated bilirubin to schizophrenia is discussed. Read More

    Idiopathic unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (Gilbert's syndrome, GS) is a relatively common congenital hyperbilirubinemia occurring in 3-7% of the world's population. It has been recognized as a benign familial condition in which hyperbilirubinemia occurs in the absence of structural liver disease or hemolysis, and the plasma concentration of conjugated bilirubin is normal. Recently, it was reported that unconjugated bilirubin exhibited neurotoxicity in the developing nervous system. Read More

    Background: Bilirubin is a yellow breakdown product of heme catabolism. Increased serum levels of unconjugated bilirubin are conditions commonly seen in premature neonates and adults with acute hemolysis including thrombotic microangiopathy. Previous studies have shown that unconjugated bilirubin lowers plasma ADAMTS13 activity, but the mechanism is not fully understood. Read More
