- Sodium fluoride toxicity in Oryctolagus cunniculus and resulting fluctuations in hematological profile.
- Dose pattern for 5 rabbits in each group 1. Control group without dose, Experimental group I with 10 mg/kg, Experimental group II with 30 mg/kg, Experimental group III with 50 mg/kg.
- Leucocytosis and anemia was observed in affected animals.
Blood is promptly affected by environmental pollutants and toxicants that can cause many metabolic disorders. The high level of fluoride acts as a potential pollutant, insecticide and rodenticide with very high toxicity, associated with the hematological damage. This study aimed to determine the toxicity of Sodium Fluoride on hematological parameters in Oryctolagus cunniculus. Twenty rabbits were acclimatized and divided in to control group and three experimental groups.Experimental group-I, II and III were treated with 10, 30 and 50?mg/kg body weight doses of Sodium Fluoride orally. Various blood parameters such as TEC, Hb, HCT, MCV, MCH, MCHC, TLC and PLT count were investigated. Result findings showed that values of blood indices in experimental groups were significantly lower than the control group. Oneway ANOVA was applied for statistical analysis. The outcomes of the current studies indicated the reduction in RBC counts (anemia), leukocyte count (leukocytopenia), monocytosis, eosinopenia, neutrophilia and thrombocytosis on fluoride intoxication. Hematological disruptions like microcytic hypochromic anemia and decreased leukocyte count may be linked to the inflammatory effects of Sodium Fluoride on lymphatic organs.
Excessive fluoride consumption increases haematological alteration in subjects with iron deficiency, thalassaemia, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency
Excessive fluoride consumption leads to accelerated red blood cell death and anaemia. Whether that increases the haematological alteration in subjects with haematological disorders (iron deficiency, thalassaemia, and G-6-PD deficiency) is still unclear. The fluoride in serum and urine and haematological parameters of students at Mae Tuen School (fluoride endemic area)
Fluoride increases lead concentrations in whole blood and in calcified tissues from lead-exposed rats.
Higher blood lead (BPb) levels have been reported in children living in communities that receive fluoride-treated water. Here, we examined whether fluoride co-administered with lead increases BPb and lead concentrations in calcified tissues in Wistar rats exposed to this metal from the beginning of gestation. We exposed female rats and
Fluoride intoxication in a dialysis unit--Maryland.
Case reports are presented of 8 patients with end stage renal disease who while undergoing dialysis received IV, excessive amounts of fluoride due to an unreported spill of hydrofluosilicic acid into the public water supply caused by cross connections in a treatment plant. Water used to mix dialysis solutions in
Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards.
Excerpts: Summary Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to establish exposure standards for contaminants in public drinking-water systems that might cause any adverse effects on human health. These standards include the maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG), the maximum contaminant level (MCL), and the secondary
Occurrence of endemic fluorosis in human population of North Gujarat, India: human health risk.
In the present study, forty villages in Mehsana district and thirteen villages in Banaskantha district were surveyed and the effects of waterborne fluoride were investigated. Parallel studies were also conducted in Ahmedabad city (non-fluoride endemic area) population which was considered as control to compare the changes occurring due to consumption
