ABSTRACT

Aim:

Serum Copper (Cu) and Zinc (Zn) levels can be associated with novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, the correlation of serum Cu and Zn levels with biochemistry, hormones, and coagulation parameters has not been fully revealed. This study aims to determine serum Cu and Zn levels and their relationships with other laboratory parameters in the acute phase of COVID-19. Material(s) and Method(s) This retrospective observational study was conducted with patients who were diagnosed with COVID-19 in a tertiary hospital. The study was continued with the remaining 116 people 53 healthy and 63 SARS-CoV-2-positives seriously ill. All laboratory data were retrospectively scanned from patient files at the hospital information system. Result(s) It was found that serum Cu, G6PD and TAS levels decreased, Zn TOS and OSI levels increased when COVID-19 patients were compared with healthy individuals. There is a positive correlation between serum Cu level and AST in COVID-19 patients, and a negative correlation between total bilirubin and LDH. There is a negative correlation between serum Zn levels and direct bilirubin, CRP, and procalcitonin. Discussion(s) Many studies have been reported showing that both Cu and Zn have antiviral effects against COVID-19. Although our data support these studies, it has been revealed that serum Cu and Zn levels were correlated with AST, direct/total bilirubin, LDH, CRP, and prolactin.Copyright © 2022, Derman Medical Publishing.
