Abstract A marked increase in the serum copper and caeruloplasmin levels in 25 female subjects taking oral contraceptives is noted. The correlation between the copper and caeruloplasmin concentrations, together with the finding of normal urine copper levels in 10 of the subjects, suggests that the increased serum copper is due to increased caeruloplasmin synthesis.
