Eight 14-week-old male Wistar FL strain rats were administered sodium fluoride in a single intraperitoneal dose (35 mg NaF/kg of bw). After 90 min the rats were fatally anesthetized with ether, and blood samples were taken. Compared to ten control rats, fluoride-treated rats developed hyperglycemia accompanied by a statistically significant increase in the concentration of fluoride, creatinine, and urea and a decrease in the level of protein and calcium in the blood serum. The results indicate disturbances in the filtrating function of kidneys in rats.
Exposure to excessive fluoride during hemodialysis
Discussion These data indicate that a patient maintained by hemodialysis in a community using fluoridated water may be exposed to a fluoride concentration higher than that present in tap water if the deionizer is allowed to become exhausted while the patient is being dialyzed. The concentration reached 520 uM in the
Serum kinetics of ionized fluoride and abnormalities of urinary parameters after single intravenous injection of hydrofluoric acid in rats.
Harmful systemic effects were studied 1 hour after acute sub-lethal exposure to hydrofluoric acid (HFA) in previous study. This study was designed to investigate the early dynamic state of F in blood and urine in rats as a model of accidental occupational exposure to HFA. It was also designed to
Ionic plasma fluoride concentrations related to some diseases in patients from a fluoridated community
Little data is available concerning the relationship between variations in ionic plasma fluoride (IPF) concentrations and some diseases, and that which exists is inconclusive. The effect of renal insufficiency is known best, but the relationship between IPF levels and some oedematous diseases and diabetes has hardly been studied at all
Toxicokinetics and metabolism deteriorated by acute nephrotoxicity after a single intravenous injection of hydrofluoric acid in rats
OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to investigate the early dynamic state of hydrofluoric acid (HFA) in blood and urine as a model of accidental occupational exposure to a subtoxic dose of HFA. It was also aimed at determining the relationship between the kinetics and harmful effects of HFA on the
Serum ionic fluoride concentrations are related to renal function and menopause status but not to age in a Japanese general population
BACKGROUND: There have been no studies in which fasting serum ionic fluoride (SIF) concentrations in a general population were investigated despite the fact that SIF has various activities in humans. METHODS: A total of 332 healthy subjects (167 men and 165 women aged 40 to 69years) were selected from residents of 2 towns
