Serum concentrations of zinc, retinol binding protein and vitamin A in patients with liver cirrhosis



Serum concentrations of zinc, retinol binding protein and vitamin A in patients with liver cirrhosis



Journal of the Fourth Military Medical University 11(3): 174-175



Concentrations of zinc, retinol binding protein (RBP) and vitamin A were estimated in serum from 17 patients with liver cirrhosis and 8 healthy adults. The results revealed that the Zn (10.26+or-3.17 micro mol/litre), RBP (0.36+or-0.22 micro mol/litre) and vitamin A (0.85+or-0.43 micro mol/litre) in serum of patients were significantly lower than in controls (12.73+or-1.15, 1.61+or-0.43 and 2.13+or-0.37 micro mol/litre respectively).
