The present research report has looked into the correlation between male infertility and the fluoride level in water, the occurrence of dental and skeletal fluorosis, [the volume and quality of] semen and the amount of fluoride contained therein. Results have shown that fluoride might be a leading cause of male infertility in regions with endemic fluorosis.
[Effects of chronic fluorosis on neurobehavioral development in offspring of rats and antagonistic effect of Vitamin E]
Objective: To study the effect of chronic fluorosis on neurobehavioral development, the ability of learning and memory in offspring of rats, and the antagonistic effect of antioxidant Vitamin E (Vit E). Methods: According to body weight, forty-five 1-month-old Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats of 30 females and 15 males were divided into three
Fluoride exposure arrests the acrosome formation during spermatogenesis via down-regulated Zpbp1, Spaca1 and Dpy19l2 expression in rat testes.
Highlights Fluoride alters the ultrastructure of acrosome and arrests acrosome formation during spermatogenesis. Fluoride down-regulates the expressions of ZPBP1, SPACA1 and Dpy19L2 during acrosome biogenesis in testis. Fluoride alters the ultrastructure of the nuclear lamina, and reduces LMNB2 expression in testis. The exposure and health effects of fluoride are an ongoing
Impact of 12-week ingestion of sodium fluoride on aggression, sexual behavior, and fertility in adult male rats
Ingestion of sodium fluoride at 100 and 300 ppm in drinking water for 12 weeks by adult male Sprague-Dawley rats was investigated for effects on territorial aggression, sexual behavior, and fertility. Body weight and absolute and relative testes weights were not affected, but the average weights of epididymis, ventral prostate,
Reproductive toxic effects of ingestion of sodium fluoride in female rats
The objective of this study was to investigate the toxic effects of different concentrations of sodium fluoride (200, 400 and 600 ppm NaF), administered in drinking water for 30 days, on the reproductive system of adult female Sprague-Dawley rats. The rats in the two higher-dosed groups showed clinical signs of
Effects of sodium fluoride on reproductive function in female rats
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of sodium fluoride (NaF) on female reproductive function and examine the morphology of the ovaries and uteri of rats exposed to NaF. Eighty female Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were divided randomly into four groups of 20: one control group and three
