Fluoride Action Network


The experiment has shown the staging of the development of immune response to the chronic fluoride intoxication. Diagnostic criteria of the initial compensation stage are: leukocytosis against the background of reduced number of lymphocytes and increased one of monocytes; high levels of ceruloplasmin in blood plasma, a progressive increase in TNFalpha and cytokine IL-10. At the decompensation stage there are: leukocytosis with increased number of neutrophils; low levels of ceruloplasmin and the cytokines IL-1beta, IL-4 and the high level of TNFalpha, IL-6, IL-10. At the stage of exhaustion there are: leukopenia against the background of lymphocytosis, a high level of Hp, the low values of the level of IgM, IgG.
