- 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.
Investigation on the effect of Hibiscus Sabdariffa calyxethanolic extract on sodium fluoride induced fluorosis in rats
Flu o rosis was induced by the oral administration of Sodium Fluoride (10mg/kg) for 30 days. On 30th day the Flurosis was confirmed by studying the level of fluorine in serum and urine. Treatment was started from 30th day to 60th day by ingesting Hibiscus Sabdariffa calyxethanolic extract 200 mg/kg and
Fluoride-induced hyperkalemia: the role of Ca2+-dependent K+ channels.
Acute fluoride poisoning is associated with sudden cardiac death by an unknown mechanism. Because F- binds to Ca2+ to cause marked hypocalcemia, lowered serum Ca2+ concentrations have been thought to be a major underlying factor in the ventricular irritability of F(-)-toxic patients. However, correction of the hypocalcemia does not prevent
Epidemiologic health study of workers in an aluminum smelter in Kitimat, B.C. II. Effects on musculoskeletal and other systems
A health study was carried out on 2066 workers in an aluminum smelter in Kitimat, British Columbia to study the effects of exposure to fluoride and other air contaminants encountered on the potlines on the musculoskeletal system, hemopoietic tissue, liver, and renal function. Three hundred seventy-two railway repair workers from
Fluorosis by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, National Health, India.
Introduction Fluorosis is a crippling disease resulted from deposition of fluorides in the hard and soft tissues of body. It is a public health problem caused by excess intake of fluoride through drinking water/food products/industrial pollutants over a long period. Ingestion of excess fluoride, most commonly in drinking-water affects the teeth
Influence of fluoride compounds upon connective tissue metabolism in growing rats: 1. Effect of hydrofluoride on collagen metabolism.
Female rats were exposed to hydroxyfluoride (2.7 mg/m3 or 5.0 mg/m3) seven weeks before pregnancy during pregnancy and lactation as well as subsequently with the offsprings up to 1, 2, 4 and 6 months after birth. The offspring was taken for investigations. It was found that serum hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine
