Forty-five male patients suffering from chronic fluorine poisoning and fifteen normal men were investigated. The urinary excretion of oestrone, oestradiol-17?, oestriol and 16-epioestriol was studied. The results revealed a high content of oestrogens in urine. This is explained by a metabolic disorder in the liver.
Intervention of selenium on apoptosis and Fas/FasL expressions in the liver of fluoride-exposed rats
Fluorosis is a major public health problem in numerous areas around the world, including China. To alleviate this problem, selenium has been used. In this study, we aimed to investigate the influence of selenium on apoptosis in fluorosis-affected rat livers and determine the optimal selenium concentration in drinking water to
Effects of selenium and fluoride on apoptosis and lipid peroxidation in human hepatocytes.
OBJECTIVE: To study the influence of selenium and fluoride on apoptosis and lipid peroxidation in human hepatocytes in vitro. METHODS: The apoptosis, cell cycle, GSH content and lipid peroxides (LPO) level in human hepatocytes, LPO level and LDH, AST and ALT activity in cell culture supernatants were investigated after hepatocytes were
The effect of high fluoride intake on tissue trace elements and histology of testicular tubules in the rat
1. Male Wistar rats were exposed to fluoride (F) at concentrations of 100- and 200 ppm in their drinking water for 6- and 16 weeks. 2. The high F intake caused several-fold increase in the F concentrations in the testes and bone as compared with control rats, both after the
Induction of oxidative stress on reproductive and metabolic organs in sodium fluoride-treated male albino rats: protective effect of testosterone and vitamin E coadministration
The present study was undertaken to search out the effect of sodium fluoride, a water pollutant noted throughout the world, including India, on oxidative stress induction in reproductive tissues, sperm pellet, and metabolic tissues like the liver and kidney. The protective effects of testosterone or vitamin-E coadministration were also observed
Effect of inhaled waste anaesthetic gas on blood and liver parameters among hospital staff.
A significant health risk exists within a section of health workers that are exposed to anaesthetic gas and vapours, found in the atmosphere of treatment or operating rooms. These compounds are classified as waste anaesthetic gases (WAG). The present study aimed at identifying alterations in hepatic and haematological parameters occurring
