The oestrone loading test was carried out on fifteen patients suffering from fluorine liver damage. Three pattern curves of the oestrogen fraction (oestrone, 17?-oestradiol and oestriol) excretion in the urine were established. Our data show that there were disturbances in oestrogen metabolism in patients with fluorine liver damage.
Correlations between fluoride concentration and free radical parameters in soft tissues of rats.
In previous studies we investigated the impact of subchronic exposure of rats to sodium fluoride administered in their drinking water as it affected selected biochemical parameters in their soft tissues and organs. The activity of glutathione peroxidase and the concentrations of fluoride, reduced glutathione (GSH), substances reacting with thiobarbituric acid (TBARS), and carbonyl groups were determined in kidney,
Sodium fluoride induced histopathalogical changes in liver and kidney of albino mice.
Fluoride is a well determined non-biodegradable and moderate pollutant, which at high levels causes serious health problems. The present study was designed to investigate the histopathalogical changes in liver and kidney of exposure to sodium fluoride in albino mice. Eighteen adult albino mice were divided into 3 groups (6 mice
Dose–effect relationship between drinking water fluoride levels and damage to liver and kidney functions in children.
Although a dose-effect relationship between water fluoride levels and damage to liver and kidney functions in animals has been reported, it was not demonstrated in humans. To evaluate the effects of drinking water fluoride levels on the liver and kidney functions in children with and without dental fluorosis, we identified
The morphological changes and molecular biomarker responses in the liver of fluoride-exposed Bufo gargarizans larvae
Highlights Fluoride triggered marked histological changes in the liver of Bufo gargarizans [the Asiatic toad or Chusan Island toad] Fluoride caused disruption of lipid metabolism. Fluoride resulted in impairing of antioxidant capacity. Fluoride induced alterations of mRNA expression of genes involved in apoptosis. The goal of the current study was to
Effects of inhaled HF on lipid metabolism in guinea pigs.
The effects of exposure to inhaled hydrogen-fluoride (7664-39-3) (HF) on lipid metabolism were investigated in male albino-guinea-pigs. One group of animals was exposed to 10 milligrams per cubic meter (m3) HF in a cylindrical plexiglass cage with an air turnover rate of 40m3 per hour for 8 hours. A control
