- NaF enhances intracellular generation of ROS and RNS in human RBC.
- It increases oxidation of proteins, thiols and lipids.
- NaF inhibits antioxidant enzymes and lowers antioxidant power of RBC.
- Antioxidant 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde mitigates NaF-induced oxidative damage in RBC.
Fluoride is an essential micronutrient that is needed for mineralization of bones and formation of dental enamel. It is a widely dispersed environmental pollutant and chronic exposure to it is toxic, resulting in malignancies and hematological damage in humans. Blood is a major and early target of environmental pollutants and toxicants like fluoride. Fluoride generates reactive oxygen species and free radicals which induce oxidative stress in target cells and mediate its toxic effects. The aim of this study was to determine the mitigating effect of plant antioxidant 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde (DHB) on sodium fluoride (NaF) induced oxidative damage and cytotoxicity in isolated human red blood cells (RBC)
Isolated human RBC were treated with 0.5 mM NaF, in absence or presence of different concentrations of DHB (0.1–2.5 mM). Several biochemical parameters were analyzed in cell lysates and whole cells.
Treatment of RBC with NaF increased the formation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. It oxidized thiols, proteins and lipids and generated their peroxidative products. Methemoglobin level, heme degradation and lipid peroxidation were increased but cellular antioxidant status declined significantly in NaF alone treated RBC, compared to the control. NaF inhibited antioxidant, membrane bound and glycolytic enzymes in RBC. However, prior incubation of RBC with DHB significantly attenuated the NaF-induced alterations in all these parameters in a DHB concentration-dependent manner.
These results show that DHB mitigates NaF-induced oxidative damage in human RBC, probably because of its antioxidant character.

Antioxidant defense systems in red blood cell lysates of men with dental fluorosis living in Tamil Nadu, India
The status of lipid peroxidation (LPO) and antioxidants was studied in red cell blood lysates of male subjects, aged 41-50, living in an endemic fluorosis area, Vellore district, Tamil Nadu, India. The men were divided into four groups: 1) normal healthy individuals (n=10); 2) individuals with mild dental fluorosis (n=13);
Oxidative stress in children with endemic skeletal fluorosis
In the village of Kheru Nayak Thanda in the Gulbarga district of Karnataka, India, 18 children aged 3 to 10 years with endemic skeletal fluorosis were shown to have oxidative stress as evidenced by elevated levels of malondialdehyde in their red blood cells, indicating increased lipid peroxidation. Significant alterations of
Effect of sodium fluoride on neuroimmunological parameters, oxidative stress and antioxidative defenses
Aims: This study was designed to evaluate the effect of sodium fluoride (NaF) in inducing neuroimmunological, oxidative and antioxidative damage. Methods: Twenty-four male Wistar rats broadly grouped into four groups containing six rats in each were fed with drinking water containing 20 ppm, 60 ppm, 100 ppm and 0.8 ppm (control)
Toxic effects of fluoride and chlorpyrifos on antioxidant parameters in rats: protective effects of vitamins C and E
In continuing our studies on the effects of fluoride (F) on the toxicity of pesticides, we investigated the interaction of 1 ppm and 10 ppm F in the drinking water of rats orally administered 1 and 10 mg chlorpyriphos/kg bw/day, alone and in combination for 28 days. Changes in antioxidant
Fluoride induces oxidative stress and ATP depletion in the rat erythrocytes in vitro
The present study was designed to examine an ability of inorganic fluoride (F) to induce oxidative stress and energy depletion in the rat erythrocytes in vitro. Accumulation of ROS and alterations in glutathione (GSH) and ATP contents were estimated in the cells incubated with 0.1-10mM NaF for 1, 5 and

Fluoride & Oxidative Stress
A vast body of research demonstrates that fluoride exposure increases oxidative stress. Based on this research, it is believed that fluoride-induced oxidative stress is a key mechanism underlying the various toxic effects associated with fluoride exposure. It is also well established that fluoride's toxic effects can be ameliorated by exposure
Nutrient Deficiencies Enhance Fluoride Toxicity
It has been known since the 1930s that poor nutrition enhances the toxicity of fluoride. As discussed below, nutrient deficiencies have been specifically linked to increased susceptibility to fluoride-induced tooth damage (dental fluorosis), bone damage (osteomalacia), neurotoxicity (reduced intelligence), and mutagenicity. The nutrients of primary importance appear to be calcium,
