Validating the assessment of glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase g6pd
More than three-quarters of the infants in the United States’ kernicterus registry (between 19) had a TSB concentration of 515 µmol/L or greater, and two-thirds had a concentration exceeding 600 µmol/L .Even with concentrations greater than 500 µmol/L, there are still some infants who will escape encephalopathy.
A deficiency of this enzyme can lead to severe hemolytic anemia and favism.Milder degrees of hyperbilirubinemia not leading to a clinical presentation of acute encephalopathy may also be neurotoxic and cause less severe long-term complications.This remains controversial; however, if there are bilirubin concentrations at which subtle cerebral injury can occur, the thresholds are unknown .KJ Barrington, K Sankaran; Canadian Paediatric Society, Fetus and Newborn Committee Abridged version: Paediatr Child Health 2007;12(Suppl B):1B-12BHyperbilirubinemia is very common and usually benign in the term newborn infant and the late preterm infant at 35 to 36 completed weeks’ gestation.Critical hyperbilirubinemia is uncommon but has the potential for causing long-term neurological impairment.The collaborative perinatal project, examining 54,795 live births in the United States, was unable to find any consistent association between peak TSB concentrations below critical levels and IQ or other adverse outcomes .
Therefore, prevention of acute encephalopathy remains the justification for the prevention, detection and treatment of severe hyperbilirubinemia .
G-6-PD of blood erythrocytes is of particular interest because a decrease in its activity can lead to the condition called enzyme that catalyzes the reversible reaction of glutamic acid into 2-oxoglutaric acid and ammonia.
High concentrations occur in the liver of sheep, cattle, horses and dogs.
Key Words: The prevention, detection and management of jaundice in otherwise healthy term and late preterm newborn infants remain a challenge, partly because jaundice is so common and kernicterus is so rare in comparison .
It is estimated that 60% of term newborns develop jaundice and 2% reach a TSB concentration greater than 340 µmol/L .
