Serum proteins, trace metals and phosphatases in psoriasis
M Bhatnagar, A Bapna, AK Khare
Serum proteins, zinc, copper, acid phosphatase (AcPase) and alkaline phosphatase (AlPase) were studied in both active and remission phases of psoriasis. Data were compared with healthy controls, ?1, ? and ? globulins were high in active phase while ?1 and ? globulins were at par in remission phase. Serum copper was low but zinc and alkaline phosphatase were significantly high in both active and remission phases of the disease. Acid phosphatase level was at par in all the experimental groups. Study suggests a positive correlation of globulin, zinc and Alpase in active and remission phase of psoriasis.
