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.
The association of fluoride in drinking water with serum calcium, vitamin D and parathyroid hormone in pregnant women and newborn infants.
Background: Chronic exposure to fluoride in drinking water causes an increase in plasma fluoride levels that is related to a reduction in calcium transport across the renal tubule endoplasmic reticulum and plasma membrane. In the present study, it was hypothesised that varying levels of fluoride present in drinking
The effect of hemodialysis upon serum levels of fluoride
Serum and dialysate ionic fluoride (F-) were determined in 29 patients under hemodialysis (HD) treatment. Serum creatinine (Cr), blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and phosphorus (P) were also examined before and after HD in 92 patients including the above 29 patients under the same treatment. Results reveal that serum F- levels
Hemodialyzability of ionizable fluoride in hemodialysis session
The fluoride ion content in serum and in dialysate medium was determined by means of a fluoride ion-selective electrode in 29 patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment. Abnormally high serum fluoride of 65.9 +/- 28.3 microg l(-1) at the beginning and 46.5 +/- 26.7 microg l(-1) at the completion of the hemodialysis
Effect of altitude on urinary, plasma and nail fluoride levels in children and adults in Nepal.
Highlights Several aspects of fluoride metabolism were examined in child-parent dyads living at a lower- and higher-altitudes in Nepal. Fluoride concentration of finger- and toe-nail was not related to either fluoride intake or altitude. In children, higher altitude leads to decreased urinary fluoride excretion when given the same fluoride dose.
Acute lethal effects and kinetics of fluoride in blood and BALF after inhalation exposure of rats to aerosolized hydrofluoric acid.
The purpose of this study was to reveal the mechanism of acute lethal accident after the exposure of human on face to a diluted solution of hydrofluoric acid (HFA). Particles of HFA solution and saline (50 µL) were intratracheally (i.t.) sprayed to rats using an aerosol generator as examples of
