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 fluoride on brain of albino rabbit - An experimental study
BACKGROUND: Fluoride is present in environment in various forms and ingested by man from solid foods, drinks, drinking water and inhaled from the air. Out of these, fluoride is present in large quantities in dissolved state in many sources of drinking water producing toxicity in man. Fluoride, being excreted mainly
Effect of aging on animal response to chronic fluoride exposure
This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that physiological changes which occur during aging increase the biological impact of fluoride and reduce the threshold of safe fluoride exposure. Four groups of rats were fed a low-fluoride diet (< 1.2 ppm) ad libitum and received 0, 5, 15, or 50
Hyperkalemia risks in hemodialysed patients consuming fluoride-rich water
In order to observe the consequences of chronic ingestion of high fluoride-rich water on plasma potassium levels of hemodialysed subjects, we have conducted a retrospective study on 25 patients with chronic renal failure, treated with a substitute method, six of whom (consumers group, group C) were drinkers of a bicarbonate
Influence of supplementary vitamins and minerals on lipid peroxidation and redox state in heart, kidney and liver of rats exposed to fluoride.
The effect of fluoride (F) and supplementary vitamins and minerals on lipid peroxidation (LPO) and redox state (RS) in heart , kidney and liver of 40 (4 groups of 10) male Wistar rats were studied. One group of rats was left untreated as control, group 1 was received 5 mg/l
Inhibition of human renal acid phosphatases by nephrotoxic micromolar concentrations of fluoride
Fluoride is considered to be a nephrotoxic substance, due to the association of 50-180 microM serum concentrations of fluoride with dose-related, subclinical to overt clinical renal impairment. At these concentrations the cellular targets of fluoride in renal tissue remain unknown. Fluoride at micromolar concentrations inhibits some enzymes including phosphatases. Here
