Serum zinc and copper levels in aplastic anemia.
Mean serum zinc and copper levels were measured in pediatric patients with idiopathic aplastic anemia. Zinc levels were significantly lower in patients compared to controls and correlated with severity of disease. Serum copper levels were significantly higher in patients. There was no correlation with severity of disease. Cu/Zn ratio also correlated with severity of disease.
