Enterohepatic circulation of bilirubin had been documented in neonates and is believed to contribute to the severity of hyperbilirubinemia . This concept gave rise to attempts to decrease serum bilirubin levels in neonates by binding bilirubin in the gastrointestinal tract and interrupting its entero-hepatic circulation. Multiple doses of agar were shown to decrease serum bilirubin levels in term newborns [12, 14].
