Biliary Atresia Research Consortium (PROBE)

Official Title: A Prospective Database of Infants with Cholestasis

Biliary atresia and idiopathic neonatal hepatitis are the most common causes of jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia that continue beyond the newborn period. The long term goal of the Biliary Atresia Research Consortium (BARC) is to establish a database of clinical information and serum and tissue samples from children with biliary atresia (BA) and idiopathic neonatal hepatitis (INH) to facilitate research and to perform clinical, epidemiological and therapeutic trials in these two important pediatric liver diseases.
