Forty-five male patients suffering from chronic fluorine poisoning and fifteen normal men were investigated. The urinary excretion of oestrone, oestradiol-17?, oestriol and 16-epioestriol was studied. The results revealed a high content of oestrogens in urine. This is explained by a metabolic disorder in the liver.
The role of calcium in ameliorating the oxidative stress of fluoride in rats
The present study was carried out to investigate the effects of fluoride toxicity on some biochemical, hormonal, and histological parameters of female rats and the protective role of calcium against such effects. Adult female albino rats were divided into five groups; control group received distilled water for 60 days, calcium
Alterations in drug metabolising enzymes and lipid peroxidation in different rat tissues by fluoride.
Sodium fluoride at a dose level of 5.0 mg/kg enhanced aminopyrine N-demethylase and NADPH cytochrome c reductase activities and cytochrome P450 and cytochrome b5 levels in rat liver, kidney, lung, intestine and testis, whereas acetanilide hydroxylase activity remained unchanged in kidney and lung and was increased in liver, intestine and
Influence of methionine upon the concentration of malondialdehyde in the tissues and blood of rats exposed to sodium fluoride
The aim of the study has been to determine the influence upon the kidney, liver, and the blood prooxidative system, exercised by administration of methionine (Met), under conditions of oxidative stress induced by sodium fluoride (NaF).The experiment was carried out on Wistar FL rats (adult females) that, for 35 days,
Relationship between fluoride deposition and metastatic calcification in soft tissues of rat and guinea pig
Two studies have been conducted to investigate whether there is a relationship between the disposition of fluoride in various soft tissues of rats and guinea pigs and the levels of calcium and phosphorous in the tissues. The results suggest that when rats receive a stock corn diet there is a
Ionic plasma fluoride concentrations related to some diseases in patients from a fluoridated community
Little data is available concerning the relationship between variations in ionic plasma fluoride (IPF) concentrations and some diseases, and that which exists is inconclusive. The effect of renal insufficiency is known best, but the relationship between IPF levels and some oedematous diseases and diabetes has hardly been studied at all
