The mission of Parents of Infants and Children with Kernicterus (P.I.C.K.) is to prevent kernicterus and trace its causes, provide information and support to families, identify effective therapies and treatment, and seek out and fund promising research. Kernicterus is a rare neurological disorder that affects newborn infants of both sexes in equal numbers. It occurs more often in premature infants, and is characterized by hyperbilirubinemia (excessive levels of bilirubin in the blood) during infancy. Bilirubin is a byproduct of the natural breakdown of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Established in 2001, this voluntary organization provides services to patients and their families, health professionals, and the general public.
