The oestrone loading test was carried out on fifteen patients suffering from fluorine liver damage. Three pattern curves of the oestrogen fraction (oestrone, 17?-oestradiol and oestriol) excretion in the urine were established. Our data show that there were disturbances in oestrogen metabolism in patients with fluorine liver damage.
Evaluation of multi-endpoint assay to detect genotoxicity and oxidative stress in mice exposed to sodium fluoride
Fluoride compounds are naturally present in soil, water and food. The objective of this study was to investigate the genotoxic and oxidative damage induced by chronic fluoride exposure on mammalian cells in vivo. For this purpose, the genotoxic potential was investigated in bone marrow cells by the micronucleus test, chromosome
The tissue distribution of fluoride in a fatal case of self-poisoning.
The purpose of this paper is to report a case of fluoride poisoning along with a discussion of poisoning characteristics, analytical procedures, and a review of previous reports of fatal intoxications with analytical data. A case of suicidal ingestion of 40 mL of a rust removal agent containing hydrofluoric acid
Effects on DNA damage and apoptosis and p53 protein expression induced by fluoride in human embryo hepatocytes.
OBJECTIVE: To study the effects of DNA damage and apoptosis and p53 expression, and to explore the relationship between apoptosis and p53 expression in human embryo hepatocytes induced by fluoride. METHODS: The rate of DNA damage, apoptosis and the level of p53 expression were investigated after the cells were incubated with
Pre-and postnatal exposition to fluorides induce changes in rats liver morphology by impairment of antioxidant defense mechanisms and COX induction.
INTRODUCTION: Fluorides are common in the environment and are absorbed mostly in the stomach and gut, it can easily move through cell membranes and its accumulation can cause harmful effects in skeletal and soft tissues. One of the most important F- accumulation sites is the liver. The aim of this
Influence of vitamin E on liver morphology and activity of carbohydrate enzymes of rats exposed to sodium fluoride
The aim of this study was to examine the influence of vitamin E on the liver morphology and carbohydrate enzyme activities of rats intoxicated with sodium fluoride (NaF). Eighteen adult male Wistar rats on a standard rat diet were divided into three equal groups for a five-week experiment: a control
