Copper and zinc levels were measured in smooth muscle from 47 uteri. Results were obtained for myocervix, isthmus and corpus in the secretory and proliferative phases and also from post-menopausal subjects. The levels were found to vary both with site sampled and the physiological state of the uterus.
The copper and zinc levels of leiomyomas were determined and compared to the levels in the uninvolved myometrium and myocervix. In general the levels found in leiomyomas were similar to those of the smooth muscle of isthmus and corpus but different to those of the myocervix. There were no significant differences in the levels found in smooth muscle of uteri… (More)
