Serum selenium, copper, and zinc levels were studied in 47 patients with Crohn's disease, 117 patients with ulcerative colitis, and 123 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. Serum selenium levels were lower and serum copper levels were higher in men and women with Crohn's disease than in controls (p < 0.001 and p < 0.01, respectively). Trace element levels were not significantly influenced by extent or localization of Crohn's disease. Men and women with ulcerative colitis had higher levels of… CONTINUE READING
