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.
DNA damage, apoptosis and cell cycle changes induced by fluoride in rat oral mucosal cells and hepatocytes
AIM: To study the effect of fluoride on oxidative stress, DNA damage and apoptosis as well as cell cycle of rat oral mucosal cells and hepatocytes. METHODS: Ten male SD rats weighing 80-120 g were randomly divided into control group and fluoride group, 5 animals each group. The animals in
Effects of fluoridated water on tissues of CSE female mice
Evidence suggests that certain tissues of the body are affected by inorganic fluoride in the diet. Groups of CSE female mice received different concentrations of fluoride in their drinking water for approximately 26 weeks. Slight variation in water and food intake was observed among the groups. Histological observation revealed pathological
Liver proteome of mice with different genetic susceptibilities to the effects of fluoride
OBJECTIVE: In this study, we investigated the differential pattern of protein expression in the liver of these mice to provide insights on why they have different responses to F. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Weanling male A/J and 129P3/J mice (n=10 from each strain) were pared and housed in metabolic cages with ad
[Renal and hepatic changes in albino rats treated with NaF microdose]
The authors, in order to study histologically the effect on the liver and kidneys of salt-fluor, have administred NaF orally to eighty rats, at the dosage of 0.02 mg % per kg of weight. The animals were decapitated on the 180th day of the experiment. The histological test of the kidneys
Fluoride exposure induces mitochondrial damage and mitophagy via activation of the IL-17A pathway in hepatocytes.
Highlights NaF induced damage of liver structure and function through the IL-17A pathway. NaF induced hepatocyte mitochondrial damage and mitophagy disorder. IL-17A addition aggravated NaF-induced hepatocyte mitochondrial damage and mitophagy. IL-17A knockout mitigated NaF-induced hepatocyte mitochondrial damage and mitophagy. As an environmental toxicant, the damage of fluoride to the body
