For saving little and new life

Biliary atresia is one of the intractable pediatric diseases occurring at the incidence of 1/10,000, for which early detection is very important.

Biliary atresia is one of intractable pediatric diseases said to occur in 1 out of 10,000 neonates. Early detection and surgical treatment within 2 months after birth are necessary, and some methods for early detection have been tried; however, it continues to be detected occasionally after a duration of 2 months. Currently, attention has been paid to the hepatic function test with widdle as a method for early detection of biliary atresia, and enlightenment activities have been made actively.

What is biliary atresia?

Biliary atresia is a disease that occurs in neonates at the incidence of 1/10,000. Early detection and surgical treatment within 2 months after birth are important, and if it passes over this period, liver cirrhosis occurs at a very high probability even after surgical treatment.

Hepatic function test with widdle

Although, generally, a hepatic function test is carried out by collection of a blood sample, the test method with “widdle” has been developed. It has become possible to perform hepatic function test simply with this method even in neonates, blood collection from which is generally difficult because of their narrow blood vessels.

Enlightenment activities

We are promoting actively the enlightenment activities about the importance of early detection/early diagnosis through holding of forums, etc. by the initiative of the patients' family group, "Association for Saving Children with Biliary Atresia."
