REMINDER: World's Leading Experts on Neonatal Jaundice Discuss Causes, Treatments, Outcomes and Prevention During Live CME Webcast

Live Webcast: From Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: September 21, 2006 at 8:00 AM EDT (12:00 UTC)

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 21, 2006 -- Join world-renowned authorities on neonatal jaundice, Drs. Jon Watchko and Jeffrey Maisels for a presentation on hyperbilrubinemia on www.OR-Live.com. Jaundice -- one of the most common conditions affecting newborns -- is a yellowing of the skin and eyes that is caused by an elevated bilirubin level in the blood. Bilirubin accumulates when red blood cells break down.

Neonatal jaundice affects 60 percent of full-term infants and 80 percent of preterm infants in the first several days after birth.

Internationally recognized experts in newborn medicine will present the latest information on hyperbilirubinemia, also known as neonatal jaundice. Drs. Watchko and Maisels will discuss causes, care, outcomes and prevention of severe neonatal jaundice. Following their presentation, Dr. Silverman will moderate a discussion -- joined by Dr. LaBella -- on the latest treatments and take questions from both the live audience and the Web audience.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is available for this webcast event.
