Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


The blood content of microelements (copper, zinc, cobalt and iron) was studied in rabbits with experimental cirrhosis of the liver; the content of these microelements was also studied in some of the organs of the animals which had perished.

With the development of cirrhosis of the liver there was a rise in copper and a reduction of iron in the blood. Zinc and cobalt content normalized after the periods of the rise. Cirrhosis of the liver caused a definite nature of microelements redistribution in the rabbit organs.
