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.
Optimal trough concentration of voriconazole with therapeutic drug monitoring in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Objectives This systematic review and meta-analysis was designed to determine the optimal trough concentration of voriconazole for children with invasive fungal infections (IFIs). Methods We searched electronic databases (PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, ClinicalTrials.gov and Japana Centra Revuo Medicina) for clinical studies describing the voriconazole trough concentration. We used stepwise cut-off
Changes in adrenal function as a possible mechanism for elevation of serum glucose by a single large dose of fluoride.
Serum glucose was elevated immediately after ip administration of a single large dose of fluoride (NaF 35 mg/kg) to rats. Moreover, elevation of serum glucose following ip administration of 35 mg/kg of fluoride to rats was suppressed by adrenalectomy, dibenamine, or propranolol, but not by thyroid-parathyroidectomy. The elevation of serum
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
Investigations of soft tissue functions in fluorotic individuals of North Gujurat
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
Changes of DNA repair gene methylation in blood of chronic fluorosis patients and rats.
To investigate the relationship between DNA repair gene methylation and chronic coal-burning fluorosis. The methylation rates of O6-methylguanine-DNA- methyltransferase gene MGMT, a DNA repair gene and mismatch repair gene MutL homolog 1 (MLH1) were analysed by methylation of specific PCR (MSP), and the levels of mRNA in the blood of
