The metabolism of the central nervous system in experimental poliomyelitis.
Excerpts In an attempt to find the reason why the anaerobic breakdown of glucose in brain is less in poliomyelitis, experiments were performed using sodium fluoride as an inhibitor (Table II). The percentage inhibition resulting from fluoride was consistently higher in the normal than in the infected brain, particularly with lower concentrations of fluoride. The […]
Some epithelial changes in fluorosis.
Extract Like the skin and its appendages, the teeth, nails and hair, so also other tissues of ectodermal origin are here shown to be affected by fluorine. The action of fluorine consists in lowering the level of the calcium in the blood and tissues. The epithelia of the mouth and the salivary glands, of the […]

Correspondence FLUORINE AND FLUOROSIS Sir, With regard to your remark ‘This has led to the suggestion that non-toxic amounts of sodium fluoride. may be added to drinking water for the prevention of dental decay’ in the editorial of June number 1944, I wish to draw your attention to the fact that the use of fluorine […]
Therapeutics and Pharmacy. CALCIUM FLUORIDE The therapeutic uses of the fluorides have received comparatively little attention, notwithstanding the fact that it is now generally recognised that a certain amount of fluorine in the form of calcium fluoride is a necessity for the proper strengthening and consistence of the bones and for the normal hardness and […]
The Use of “Salufer” (Silico-Fluoride of Soda) as an Antiseptic
Excerpt BY A. W. MAYO ROBSON, F.R.C.S., Honorary Surgeon, Leeds General Infirmary; and Lecturer on Practical Surgery at the Yorkshire College. A PERFECT antiseptic for surgical purposes has yet to be found. It must be at the same time a strong germicide, non-poisonous, unirritating to the skin or to the tissues, inodorous, non-volatile, not destroyed […]
Dental Fluorosis and Dental Caries.
FOR some 8 or 9 years past the presence of fluorine in water supplies has been attracting much attention, chiefly as a danger and as the cause of endemic dental fluorosis, or mottled enamel, which has been reported in some 300 communities in 23 states of the Union. According to Dean,1 this condition was first […]
Endemic Fluorosis in the Nellore District of South India.
About the month of April 1936 the district health officer, Nellore, Dr. Lakshminarayana, had his attention drawn by the health inspectors of Podili and Darsi ranges of the Nellore district to a disease characterized by a definite train of symptoms and which was very prevalent in the district. The most obvious symptoms of this […]
Some Epidemiological Aspects of Chronic Endemic Dental Fluorosis.
Excerpt THE endemic hypoplasia of the permanent teeth known in this country as mottled enamel was first reported by Eager in 1901. The first investigation in the United States was the extensive one of Black,2 and McKay,3 published in 1916. At present in this country alone there are more than 200 areas where endemic mottled […]
