AbstractThe present investigation includes study and determination of some vitamins (C, A and E), trace elements [iron (Fe), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), magnesium (Mg) and selenium (Se)] and electrolytes [sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and chloride Cl-)] in serum of benign and malignant brain tumor patients compared with control group.
Blood samples (93) from brain tumors patients, and (65) blood samples from healthy subjects as control group are collected for the present study.
The results obtained show a significant decrease in the concentration of vitamins (C, A and E) and in the trace elements (Zn, Se). On the other hand a significant increase in the concentration of (Fe, Cu, Na+ and Cl-) were observed in the serum of benign and malignant brain tumor patients compared with the control group.
