Fluoride levels of 600 samples of iliac crest bone in ash weight were correlated with age. They showed a near linearship with age. The yearly rate of accumulation of fluoride in bone was found to be 25.589 ug/g bone ash weight. This accumulation rate could be met by the ingestion of 0.867 mg/day of fluoride. The derivation of this figure is indicated and considered in relation to known ranges of dietary and other levels of fluoride ingestion.
Associations of fluoride intake with children's bone measures at age 11.
BACKGROUND: Relationships between fluoride intake and bone health continue to be of interest, as previous studies show conflicting results. OBJECTIVES: The purpose is to report associations of fluoride intake with bone measures at age 11. METHODS: Subjects have been participating in the ongoing Iowa Fluoride Study/Iowa Bone Development Study. Mothers were recruited
Fluoride exposure changed the structure and the expressions of HSP related genes in testes of pubertal rats.
Previous studies have indicated that fluoride exposure damaged the male reproductive function; however, the cellular mechanism of fluoride-induced testicular toxicity is still unclear. In this study, twenty-two female pregnant Wistar rats were allotted randomly to two groups: control (deionized water) and sodium fluoride (NaF, contain F-: 67.86 mg/L) groups. After delivery,
Fluoride concentrations in human and rat bone
The most recent report on fluoride concentrations ([F]) in human bone was published over a decade ago. Such data are of interest in the context of changing patterns in systemic fluoride exposure. In the study reported here, bone samples were collected from 24 human subjects who underwent orthopedic surgery. Medical
Bone fluoride in patients with uremia maintained by chronic hemodialysis
Bone specimens from 42 patients with end-stage renal disease and from 9 patients without renal or bone disease have been analyzed for the content of fluoride, calcium, and phosphorus. Thirty-one patients were treated with chronic hemodialysis for periods ranging up to 56 months by employing dialysate made up with tap
Industrial fluorosis [Franke et al.]
This is a review of findings on workers in an aluminum plant with industrial fluorosis. Early signs of the disease are nocturnal back pains and restriction of the rotation of the trunk. Stage I of the disease usually occurs after 10 years, stage II after 15 years and stage III
