Keywords: homeostasis, chronic viral hepatitis C, metal ions


In modern conditions, the attention of clinicians is attracted by the problems of disturbances in the system of homeostasis in patients with chronic viral hepatitis C, which is explained by the progress of knowledge in this area and new opportunities for detection and treatment of various types of this pathology. The aim of the research was to study the dynamics of intracellular homeostasis parameters in patients with chronic viral hepatitis C. Results of the study. The results of the conducted studies revealed profound disturbances in the metabolism of metal ions in patients with chronic viral hepatitis C. In serum, there was a significant (p ≤ 0.05) increase in iron, copper, zinc, potassium, sodium, calcium and a decrease in magnesium ions; in erythrocytes – there was an increase in calcium, magnesium, sodium, copper and a decrease in potassium, zinc and iron. The established disturbances in patients with chronic hepatitis C indicate the poly-system structural and metabolic changes, intracellular homeostasis disorders and, as a consequence, the development of membrane pathology in chronic viral hepatitis C.
