The current study was done at the Department of Biology, Faculty of Education for Girls, University of Kufa, from May 2019 to April 2020, with the goal of detecting the levels of Total antioxidants in serum of patients before and after hydatid cyst excision. Farmers had the greatest percentages (71.42 %) in the current survey, followed by self-employed people in seven cases (16.67%). This conclusion was supported by additional research. study recorded that the infections was higher among illiterate than literate individuals, and reported that 26 cases (61.90%) were illiterate, 8 cases (19.04%) were primary school, 5 cases (11.90%) were secondary school and 4 cases (9.52%) were of high education which was statistically highly significant (P≤0.05). The results of the concentration of Total antioxidants in serum of patients before hydatid cyst removal using the ELISA technique revealed a significant increase (P 0.05) in the level of Total antioxidants before removing the hydatid cysts, which was 1397.328.35, compared to the level of Total antioxidants after removing the hydatid cysts, which was 1213.413.96, and healthy 1767.913.95. The total antioxidant levels increased significantly (P 0.05) as a function of the ELISA test.
