Ceftriaxone effect on bilirubin-albumin binding

, : Ceftriaxone effect on bilirubin-albumin binding. Pediatrics 80(6): 873-875

The effect of ceftriaxone on bilirubin-albumin binding was measured in vitro using the peroxidase method with human serum albumin and a dialysis rate method with adult and newborn serum. Ceftriaxone competes with bilirubin for binding to human serum albumin; the displacement constant is 1.5 X 10(4) L/mol. Therapeutic levels of ceftriaxone decrease the reserve albumin concentration in newborn serum by 39%. These results indicate that ceftriaxone may increase the risk of bilirubin encephalopathy in jaundiced premature infants.
