The fluoride sensitivity of cells released from rat livers and kidneys by collagenase perfusion was investigated by measuring effect on protein synthesis rate in vitro. Both cell types were sensitive to fluoride with clear concentration/effect relationships. Significant difference in sensitivity for fluoride between the cell types was found, with the kidney cells being the most sensitive type.
Effect of fluoridated water on plasma insulin levels and glucose homeostasis in rats with renal deficiency.
Glucose intolerance in fluorosis areas and when fluoride is administered for the treatment of osteoporosis has been reported. Controlled fluoridation of drinking water is regarded as a safe and effective measure to control dental caries. However, the effect on glucose homeostasis was not studied so far. The aim of this
Ionic plasma fluoride concentrations related to some diseases in patients from a fluoridated community
Little data is available concerning the relationship between variations in ionic plasma fluoride (IPF) concentrations and some diseases, and that which exists is inconclusive. The effect of renal insufficiency is known best, but the relationship between IPF levels and some oedematous diseases and diabetes has hardly been studied at all
Tamarind seed coat extract restores fluoride-induced hematological and biochemical alterations in rats.
Fluoride (F-) is becoming an ineluctable environmental pollutant causing deleterious effects in humans. In the present study, we examined whether tamarind seed coat extract (TSCE) is beneficial against the F--induced systemic toxicity and hematological changes. Wistar rats were randomly grouped as follows: group I served as control; group II intoxicated
Histopathological changes of renal tissue following sodium fluoride administration in two consecutive generations of mice. Correlation with the urinary elimination of fluoride
The present study was designed to investigate the toxic effects (evaluated as histopathological changes) of sodium fluoride on the kidney in two consecutive generations of NMRI mice. An attempt to correlate the toxicity with the urinary elimination of fluoride has been made, as urinary fluoride excretion has been widely used
Relationship between prevention of renal calcification by fluoride and fluoride-induced diuresis and reduction of urinary phosphorus excretion in magnesium-deficient KK mice
Mineral balance studies were performed to clarify the mechanism of the development of renal calcification and its prevention by dietary fluoride (0.1% as NaF) in KK mice fed a low magnesium (0.04% ) diet. Upon feeding the diet, the product of urinary calcium and phosphorus concentrations showed a 10-fold increase
