Abstract

The concentration of zinc of the Reumatoid Arthritis patients has been determined by ICP-AES, and the analytical results are discussed. It is observed that the zinc concentration is largely affected by the length of scalp hair. The concentrations of zinc in the distal end are much higher than that of the proximal end.
