Plasma levels of Zn and Cu in controls and patients. Bars represent mean (+/-SEM) Zn (A) and Cu (B) plasma levels, and plasma Cu/Zn ratios (C) of urban (U) and endemic (E) controls; and patients with mucosal leishmaniasis (ML), localized cutaneous leishmaniasis before (LCL0) and after 3 months of treatment (LCL3), and visceral leishmaniasis (VL). *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < .001 for LCL0 and ML vs. E and for VL vs. U (Mann-Whitney test).
