Contents of trace elements in the hair of aplastic anemia patients and the treatment based on an overall analysis of symptoms and signs

T
he content of 12 trace elements in the hair of 20 aplastic anemia patients was determined and compared with that of normal subjects as controls. The results showed that patients with deficiency of yin had a significant decrease in lithium, calcium, strontium and chromium; those with deficiency of yang had a distinct decrease in zinc, magnesium, barium, strontium, calcium, and lithium, and those with deficiency of both yin and yang had a general decrease in all the 12 trace elements. Changes in trace element content in hair may serve as a guide to opening new vistas in the treatment of aplastic anemia on the basis of an overall analysis of symptoms and signs.
