The average serum mucoprotein levels in controls were 10.13 ± 1.97 mg%, in pulmonary tuberculosis - 24.56 ± 4.45 mg% and in carcinoma lung 25.80 ± 4.47 mg%. Comparatively low values were obtained in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, 16.07 ± 2.74 mg%. The raised level of serum mucoprotein was more marked in patients having sputum smear positive for mycobacterium with cavitation. Serum mucoprotein had a direct relationship with the radiological extent of disease. The serum mucoprotein level returns towards normal in both tubercular and non-tubercular groups after treatment, while an increasing trend in the serum mucoprotein was observed in cases of carcinoma lung. Thus, serum mucoprotein estimation may be used as a prognostic parameter in tubercular and non-tubercular lung diseases.
