Breastfeeding jaundice is a common problem in neonates who were exclusively breastfed, but its pathogenesis is still unclear. The uridine diphosphate glucuronosyl transferase 1A1 (UGT1A1) gene polymorphism was shown to contribute to the development of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. We hypothesize that the variation of UGT1A1 gene may contribute to neonatal breastfeeding jaundice. We prospectively enrolled 688 near-term and term infants who were exclusively breastfed (BF group) or were… CONTINUE READING
