The objective from this study was to detected the level of IL-17A and IFN-y in the burn patients that afflicted by different types of bacteria compare with the control group of patients that not afflicted by bacteria. The samples collection was carried out from 15/10/2017 to 22/1/2018 at the burns hospital in Baghdad. Samples were collected from patients sera. collection samples were from (88) burn patients, 58 of them that infected by deferent types of bacteria, 29 patients were males, and 29 patients were females. The other 30 patients that not infected by bacteria, 15 patients were males, and 15 patients were females, this group used as control group. The investigation of the level of the IL-17A and IFN-y were carried out by ELISA assay in the teaching Laboratories in Baghdad. The results showed decrease in the level of IL-17A in the patients were 43.43 pg+5.426 compare to the control group were 55.77pg +5.418. and its showed decrease in IFN-y levels of patients were 36.95pg+5.808 compare to the control group were 46.63pg+5.816. The current study reported highly significant difference of IL-17A and IFN-y levels between the patients and control group at the level (P < 0.01).
