Abstract
The photochemistry of bilirubin (BR) is of considerable interest because of its importance in the treatment of neonatal jaundice with visible light phototherapy. Patients are irradiated with blue, white or green fluorescent lamps to induce conversion of the unexcretable and toxic bilirubin to more polar, water-soluble and easily excreted photoproducts. The molecular mechanisms responsible for the phototherapeutic action of light on jaundiced babies have not jet been completely elucidated.
