Patients with hepatitis infection can also have hyperlipidemia. Sera of both hepatitis (40) and hyperlipidemia (40) were collected from the central lab of Sulaimaniyah-Kurdistan region/ Iraq. Age, sex, duration of infection, medication used and lipid profile using computerized database program, as characteristics information of patients were done.  The levels of Cr, Cu, Zn, Mn, V and Se were determined in sera of both patients and compared with healthy controlled (n=30), using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES). Hepatitis samples yielded concentration in ppb of (7.34±0.01) Cr, (171.7±2.51) Cu, (138±3.41) Zn, (1.309±0.99) Mn, (184.7±6.12) V and (218.9±3.14) Se respectively, while hyperlipidemia samples yielded concentration (ppb) of (5.22±0.45) Cr, (197.01±2.34) Cu, (160.3±4.01) Zn, (0.068±1.91) Mn, (247.01±0.65) V and (185.5±3.11) Se respectively. Controlled samples reflects the following concentrations (ppm),  (5.324±1.34) Cr, (131.2±4.34) Cu, (216.6±0.83) Zn, (0.024±1.75) Mn, (235.3±0.18) V and (223.2±3.15) Se  respectively.The aim of the study focused on evaluating metal ions physiological role in the body, and as liver was responsible for synthesizing lipid , thus lipid profiles where suggested to be investigated along the study.

Key words: hepatitis, hyperlipidemia, trace elements, ICP-OES technique
