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.
Evaluation of serum lipoprotein and tissue antioxidant levels in sheep with fluorosis
The aim of this study was to evaluate serum lipoprotein and tissue antioxidant levels of sheep with and without fluorosis living in a volcanic area of Turkey. Fifteen Akkaraman sheep with fluorosis in the A?ri region north of Lake Van and 10 Akkaraman sheep without fluorosis in the Van region
Apoptotic and Oxidative Mechanisms in Liver and Kidney Tissues of Sheep with Fluorosis.
This study was planned to determine the molecular basis and causes of damage to the kidney and the liver, which are the most affected tissues in sheep exposed to chronic fluoride. For this purpose, liver and kidney tissues were obtained from sheep with signs of fluorosis in the age range
Investigations of soft tissue funtions in fluorotic Individuals of north Gujarat
The present study was undertaken to investigate the various health problems caused by water-borne fluoride in endemic villages of Mehsana and Banaskantha districts of Gujarat. The study revealed high levels of fluoride in serum samples of the villagers. Mottling of teeth and skeletal complications were common. Intake of fluoride caused
Fatal cases of acute suicidal sodium and accidental zinc fluorosilicate poisoning. Review of acute intoxications due to fluoride compounds.
Fluoride, of all inorganic substances, is among the least likely to be identified by a routine toxicological analysis. Acute poisonings with salts of hydrofluoric or fluorosilicic acid, however, although relatively uncommon, may occur. Some fluorosilicates, salts of fluorosilicic acid (e.g. Al, Zn, Pb, Mg) are used as stone consolidants, others
Effect of fluorosis on liver cells of VC deficient and wild type mice
For decades, mouse and other rodents have been used for study of oxidative or related studies such as the effect of fluoride. It is known that rodents normally synthesize their own vitamin C (VC) due to the presence of a key enzyme in ascorbic acid synthesis, lgulonolactone-?-oxidase (Gulo), while humans
