- In spite of the high incidence of anemia. especially
of iron deficiency nature. among Koreans.little
has been studied in the field of iron and copper
metabolism in this country. The authors determined
the values of serum iron and copper of the healthy
Koreans, for the purpose of the further study with
their changes in various diseases.
1. Serum iron was measured by means of Klett·Su
mmersons photo-electric colorimeter, employing
510m filter , according to the modified Barkans
method, which was turned out to be most simple
yet precise among the modification methodes, devised
from the original Heilmeyers method.
Serum copper was measured according to the
Gubler-Laheys method , employing 350 mμ filter.
2. The materials were 100 cases of male and cases
of female who were essentially healthy and hematologically
normal. Their ages ranged from 18
to 54 years old.
The mean value of serum iron in male was
114.0土2.48 ((1= 24. 8O) r%·. while that ill female
was 93.3 土1.55 ((1= 15. 46) r%·
In serum iron value there is a marked difference
between male and female.
The mean values of serum copper in male was
126.35土1. 20 ((1= 12. 26) r% .. while that in female
was 126.5土1. 20 ((1= 12. 0) T%.
In serum copper there is no difference between
male and female.
It is noticeable that these values are not much
different from those of the foreign authors.
3. The values in 4 males and females measured
before and after meal did not show the marked
4. Thereexists no definite correlation between the
values of serum irom and R.B.C. and Rb. values.
