HF exposure might produce adverse effects in industrial workers. A 3 mo. exposure of rats to HF at 10 mg/m3 8 h/day 5 days/wk resulted in increased blood serum concentrations of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine and in enhanced urinary excretion of these amino acids and in changes of collagen fractions in the liver, lungs and skin. In all tissues studied (especially liver), soluble and insoluble collagen decreased. HF affected biosynthesis and maturation of collagen fibers.
Effects of inhaled HF on lipid metabolism in guinea pigs.
The effects of exposure to inhaled hydrogen-fluoride (7664-39-3) (HF) on lipid metabolism were investigated in male albino-guinea-pigs. One group of animals was exposed to 10 milligrams per cubic meter (m3) HF in a cylindrical plexiglass cage with an air turnover rate of 40m3 per hour for 8 hours. A control
Influence of extended exposure to sodium fluoride and caffeine on the activity of carbohydrate metabolism enzymes in rat blood serum and liver.
A 50-day study of the influence of fluoride (F) and caffeine on carbohydrate metabolism enzymes was conducted on 18 male Sprague-Dawley rats, 4.5 months old, housed in separate cages at 22–25°C on a 12-hr light/dark cycle. The rats were divided into three groups with six rats in each group: control,
Oxidative stress parameters in rats exposed to fluoride and caffeine
In our experiment, the 1-month effects of caffeine (Caff) and fluoride (F) administered separately and together on nitric oxide and total antioxidant status in serum, brain, liver and kidney of rats were investigated. Also, the influence of caffeine on fluoride excretion with urine was studied. Thirty adult male Wistar rats
Effect of chronic exposure to sodium fluoride and 7,12- dimethylbenz[a]anthracene on some blood parameters and hepatic, renal, and cardiac histopathology in rats.
This study aimed to investigate the effects of both sodium fluoride (NaF) and 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA), both separately and in combination, on some blood parameters and hepatic, renal, and cardiac histopathology in rats. Forty male Wistar albino rats, weighing 250–300 g, were randomly divided into one control and three experimental groups
Fluoride sensitivity in freshwater snail, Bellamya bengalensis (Lamarck, 1882): An integrative biomarker response assessment of behavioral indices, oxygen consumption, haemocyte and tissue protein levels under environmentally relevant exposure concentrations.
Highlights Responses in NaF-exposed freshwater snail, Bellamya bengalensis was estimated. Mortality increased with elevated fluoride concentrations and increasing exposure period. Altered behavior and lowered oxygen consumption were concentration-dependent. Decreased haemocyte count could impact respiratory capacity. Reduced protein content in hepatopancreas indicate impaired protein synthesis. There is limited information on fluoride
