Crigler-Najjar syndrome is characterized by a deficiency UGT1A1, an enzyme specialized in bilirubin conjugation, which becomes a yellow toxic pigment if it accumulates above a certain threshold in body tissues such as the brain. Its only current treatment is blue light which makes it possible to degrade the unconjugated bilirubin, but forces the patients to stay 10 to 12 hours every day under phototherapy lamps and becomes increasingly less eff
