Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is a rate-limiting enzyme in bilirubin metabolism, and its genetic variant may modulate hyperbilirubinemia risk in neonates. The aim of the present study was to assess the association between heme oxygenase-1 gene variants and hyperbilirubinemia risk in Indian newborns. In a prospective case–control study, we analyzed (GT)n repeats… CONTINUE READING
