Total serum proteins by micro-Kjeldahl method and its various fractions by electrophoresis were studied in 11 normal and 45 tuberculous patients who were divided into tuberculous, treated and resistant group of 15 each. A fall in albumin and a rise in the globulin fractions leading to an increase in the total serum proteins has been observed in tuberculous patients. AIpha-1, alpha-2 and gamma globulins were raised maximally while beta globulin did not show any variations in these patients. Anti-tubercular therapy tried to restore these values towards normalcy but resistant cases failed to do so. These results have been discussed in the light of the available literature.
