According to the data more of urologists 9–35% men suffers from a c chronic prostatitis. Near 80% work out men for 20 to 50 years old. Lately events of chronic prostatitis increase because also increases different forms of uretritis, epydidimoorchitis, lowering of the resistance of organism and the influence of outside environment.

The objective: of our study was to conduct a comparative analysis of the normal contents and bacterial prostatitis (BP) macro– and  traceelement composition of blood to optimize the regeneration of the processes.

Materials and methods. The study involved 65 patients with bacterial prostatitis aged from 18 to 48 years, who were divided into groups: Group І patients with BP, group ІІ – control group, consisted of 25 healthy persons with patients of similar age. Determination of serum microelements was carried out by atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Statistical analysis of the results of research was carried out by  using a standard computer program Microsoft Excel.

Results. Thus, the determination of Zinc in blood showed that in general patients with BP observed a significant reduction of trace elements such as Zinc content was (0,48±0,02) mg% and differed significantly from that seen in healthy persons (P<0,001). This result is quite significant, since it is known that Zinc deficiency is associated with reduced antioxidant enzyme systems and formation of adequate response of the body to the action of bacterial agents in BP.

Conclusions. The presence of an imbalance in the system ofbioele ments is one of the pathogenetic mechanisms of development and progress ofinflammation in patients with bacterial prostatitis. Clinical implementation of metabolic disorders occurs at the level of the element with the violation of immunological resistance of the organism.
