ABSTRACT. In order to assess the microelement status, a blood examination of 209 pregnant women of the indigenous and newcomer population of Priamuriewas carried out by plasma spectrometry. It was revealed that in comparison to newcomer urban women, newcomer pregnant women from rural areas had significantly increased levels of Cu, Zn, Se and Cd, Pb in the serum, accompanied by a decrease in the concentration of Zn, Se and an increase in Cd, Pb in blood cells. Indigenous pregnant women are characterized by a tendency towards a decrease in Cu, Zn, Se, Pb and accumulation of Cd in the serum; a decrease in Cu, Pb and an increase in Zn, Se, Cd in blood cells in comparison to newcomers living in the same rural area. The revealed imbalance happens because of different sources of water, food, and requires additional correction of vitamin and mineral complexes.
