Study the Activity of Arginase Enzyme and Biochemical Parameters in Patients of Typhoid Fever

Shnst Ibrahim Mohammed Ali, Sayran Sattar Saleh

Abstract


Typhoid fever causes significant biochemical changes, serum biochemistry was studied to investigate the correlation of these factors to typhoid fever. Total 100 subjects were studied, 35 healthy individuals and 65 typhoid patients . Blood samples were collected in a gel and anticoagulant tubes from Azadi Teaching Hospital, Kirkuk, Iraq. In this study, Widal test was used to test samples. High level of Arginase activity (P≤0.01) were observed in typhoid patients. And a number of biochemical parameters were measured, a Significantly increased at a level of probability (p≤ 0.01) in the ,(Alanin Aminotransferase )ALT , (Aspartate transaminase )AST , Urea ,Creatinine, Uric acid ,Triglyceride, Very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) for patients with Typhoid fever as compared with the control group. And a Significantly decreased at a level of probability (p≤ 0.01) in the Cholesterol , Total protein , Albumin for patients with Typhoid fever as compared with the control group .And the level of Globulin(P≤0.05) was not recorded significant differences.
