Abstract:

Biochemical alterations in the enzymes of liver from 115 patients admitting Azadi Hospital in Kerkuk province for checkup and treatment were studied and compared with 44 healthy control. The liver enzymes ALT, AST and ALP collected from blood samples were analyzed using ELISA test kit. The frequency of enzymatic abnormality was almost 13%, 22% and 11% for AST, ALT and ALP, respectively. The frequency of hepatitis-B in male patients was higher (59%) than in female (41%). The difference in the first two enzymes were insignificant while ALP revealed significant (p≤0.05) in comparison with control. However, these differences were significance (p≤0.05-0.01) when compared between both genders and their control counterparts. The general proportion of infection amongst both genders in Iraq may be similar to those detected in Fareast and Mediterranean countries due to decline in health care in Iraq. The Iraqi females appeared to be more susceptible to infection of hepatitis-B than male counterparts which could be attributed to variation in mode of life.
