Abstract:Our study is the first in the United States to describe the epidemiologic characteristics of biliary atresia using a population-based approach. The demonstration of significant seasonal clustering provides support for theories that biliary atresia may be caused by environmental exposure (consistent with a viral cause) during the perinatal period.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
