Transplacental passage of fluorides was studied in 25 randomly selected neonates. Blood samples collected simultaneously from the mother and the umbilical cord showed that average fluoride concentration in the cord blood was 60% of that in mother’s blood. When concentration in the mother’s blood exceeded 0.4 ppm, the placenta acted as a selective barrier.
Long-term follow up of ionic plasma fluoride level in patients receiving hemodialysis treatment
The elimination half-life of fluoride is significantly increased in patients with chronic renal failure. This led us to conduct a study of variations of its plasma levels in 35 patients receiving dialysis treatment. In this population, there is a gaussian distribution of the values before and after the hemodialysis session,
Fluoride effects on glutathione peroxidase and lipid peroxidation in rats.
SUMMARY: Eight-week old male Wistar rats weighing 180 g were given sodium fluoride in drinking water at a concentration of 5 and 25 mg F–/L for 12 weeks. Control animals received tap water containing 0.3 mg F–/L. The activity of glutathione peroxidase and the concentration of malondialdehye (MDA) were determined
Fluoride exposure and kidney and liver function among adolescents in the United States: NHANES, 2013–2016.
Highlights Plasma fluoride concentrations are associated with kidney and liver parameters among United States (U.S.) adolescents Higher water fluoride concentrations are associated with lower blood urea nitrogen among U.S. adolescents Fluoride exposure may contribute to complex changes in kidney and liver related parameters among U.S. adolescents Altered kidney and/or liver
Fluoride exposure altered metabolomic profile in rat serum
Highlights 58 NEG and 73 POS metabolites were altered in F-treated 3 weeks rat serum. 126 NEG and 70 POS metabolites were altered in F-treated 11 weeks rat serum. Four significantly different metabolites, nicotinamide, adenosine, 1-Oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine, and 1-Stearoyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphocholine were shared by two models. Urea, N2-Acetyl-l-ornithine, and betaine were
Serum fluoride concentrations in renal insufficiency
In an area with non-fluoridated water (F content, 0.061 ppm), serum fluoride concentrations as measured with an ion specific electrode were as follows: controls (N = 13), 0.0127 ppm + 0.0057 (mean + SD); renal insufficiency (N = 10), 0.0452 ppm + 0.0151; chronic hemodialysis (N = 11), 0.0424 +
