- Uranium and fluoride induce an adaptive response in mice exposed chronically.
- Apoptosis regulation is involved in uranium-induced adaptive response.
- Inflammatory control is involved in fluoride-induced adaptive response.
- Uranium induces UPR and autophagy in the kidney.
- Fluoride induces UPR in the kidney.
Despite their differences in physicochemical properties, both uranium (U) and fluoride (F) are nephrotoxicants at high doses but their adverse effects at low doses are still the subject of debate.
This study aims to improve the knowledge of the biological mechanisms involved through an adaptive response model of C57BL/6 J mice chronically exposed to low priming doses of U (0, 10, 20 and 40 mg/L) or F (0, 15, 30 and 50 mg/L) and then challenged with acute exposure of 5 mg/kg U or 7.5 mg/kg NaF.
We showed that an adaptive response occurred with priming exposures to 20 mg/L U and 50 mg/L F, with decreased levels of the biomarkers KIM-1 and CLU compared to those in animals that received the challenge dose only (positive control). The adaptive mechanisms involved a decrease in caspase 3/7 activities in animals exposed to 20 mg/L U and a decrease in in situ VCAM expression in mice exposed to 50 mg/L F. However, autophagy and the UPR were induced independently of priming exposure to U or F and could not be identified as adaptive mechanisms to U or F.
Taken together, these results allow us to identify renal adaptive responses to U and F at doses of 20 and 50 mg/L, probably through decrease apoptosis and inflammatory cell recruitment.

Complete Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus After Prolonged Sevoflurane Sedation: A Case Report About 3 Cases.
Volatile anesthetic agents, such as sevoflurane, are increasingly used for long-term sedation in intensive care units worldwide, with improved clinical outcomes reported in recent studies due to favorable pharmacological properties. Despite possible renal toxicity related to the production of plasma inorganic fluoride and concerns related to reversible impairment of renal
Fluoride-induced apoptosis and expressions of caspase proteins in the kidney of carp (Cyprinus carpio).
The study was conducted to investigate oxidative stress, apoptosis, and protein expressions of caspase-3, 8, and 9 in kidney of the carp juveniles exposed to 0, 40, 80, 120, and 160 mg L-1 of fluoride (in the form of NaF) for 90 days. The results showed that dose- and time-dependent
Effects of selenium intervention on chronic fluorosis-induced renal cell apoptosis in rats
This study aims to explore the effect of selenium in fluoride-induced renal cell apoptosis in rats and determine the optimal level of selenium in drinking water to prevent fluorosis. Experimental animals were divided into a control group, a sodium fluoride-treated group (NaF, 50 mg/L), three sodium selenite-treated groups (Na2SeO3, 0.375, 0.75,
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
Serum ionic fluoride levels in haemodialysis and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients
High serum fluoride (F-) in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with risk of renal osteodystrophy and other bone changes. This study was done to determine F- in normal healthy controls and patients with ESRD on haemodialysis (HD) or peritoneal dialysis (PD). Seventeen
