Aluminum toxicity in patients with chronic renal failure has been related to renal osteodystrophy and dialysis encephalopathy (DES). The toxicity is associated with renal osteodystrophy in two ways. One association is the iatrogenic effect of excessive use of aluminum hydroxide gels resulting in hypophosphatemia which interferes with bone mineralization. The second association may involve deposition of aluminum in bone owing to aluminum being absorbed during hemodialysis. Evidence for this… Expand
Aluminium exposure in haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients: Experience of a single centre
Introduction: Aluminium exposure and toxicity are uncommon in humans. However it may occur in patients on long term haemodialysis (HD) due to water exposure during treatment. We retrospectivelyExpand
Hyperaluminaemia Associated with Oral Citrate and Aluminium Hydroxide
TLDR
The combination of oral aluminium and citrate should be avoided in patients with poor renal function and the high aluminium concentration was attributed to the concurrent use of an oral citrate solution. Expand
The health effects of aluminum compounds in mammals.
TLDR
Evaluation of information published in the last decade related to the health effects of aluminum compounds in mammals suggests that the toxic effects currently associated with A1(III) compounds are dependent upon the nature of A1 (III) complexes formed from electron donating groups, rather than restricted to the presence of the high charge density matrix of A2(III).

Occurrence, exposure, effects, recommended intake and possible dietary use of selected trace compounds (aluminium, bismuth, cobalt, gold, lithium, nickel, silver)

TLDR
Some inorganic trace compounds might have unexpected effects at extremely low dosages, but scientific demonstrations of beneficial effects of supplementation are mostly not available in the medical literature. Expand
Plasma aluminum is bound to transferrin.
  • G. Trapp
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Life sciences
  • 1983
Aluminum ion is bound to at least one of the two specific iron binding sites of serum transferrin and also to serum albumin, as shown by in vivo competition studies with 67-Ga, gel filtrationExpand
Trace elements in serum, packed cells, and dialysate of CAPD patients.
TLDR
There is an apparent loss of Br from the blood towards the dialysate and on the other hand, a dramatic accumulation of Cr into the blood as a result of the very high Cr content in the Dialysate. Expand
Study of Biochemical Parameters in Sera of Diabetes Mellitus DM (Type 1) Patients with Nephropathy and Myocardial Vascular Disease Complication
TLDR
The study showed elevated in level of lipid profile, urea in patients, auto immune antibody compared with control group, and higher than normal level of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase in patients. Expand
Extracorporeal therapies for acute intoxications.
TLDR
Practical approaches to commonly encountered intoxicants and the use of extracorporeal techniques are critically reviewed and 4-methylpyrazole, an inhibitor of alcohol dehydrogenase, is a new and effective treatment for patients exposed to toxic alcohols. Expand

Determination of desferoxamine and a major metabolite by high-performance liquid chromatography. Application to the treatment of aluminium-related disorders.
TLDR
A high-performance liquid chromatography method is described that permits separation and quantification of desferoxamine, a major metabolite, the iron(III) and the aluminum( III) chelates of Desferoxamines and derivatives designed to study side-effects and metabolite patterns in patients undergoing treatment.

The dialysis encephalopathy syndrome. Possible aluminum intoxication.
TLDR
The fact that brain gray-matter aluminum was higher in all patients with the dialysis-associated encephalopathy syndrome than any of the control subjects or other uremic patients on dialysis suggests that this syndrome may be due to aluminum in intoxication. Expand
The effect of aluminium hydroxide on calcium, phosphorus and aluminium balances, the serum parathyroid hormone concentration and the aluminium content of bone in patients with chronic renal failure.
TLDR
The concentration of parathyroid hormone was decreased by aluminium hydroxide therapy in three patients in whom there was an increase in plasma calcium and in one other patient in whom plasma calcium did not change. Expand
OSTEOMALACIC DIALYSIS OSTEODYSTROPHY: EVIDENCE FOR A WATER-BORNE ÆTIOLOGICAL AGENT, PROBABLY ALUMINIUM
TLDR
The evidence that aluminium absorption from dialysate causes osteomalacia and encephalopathy is strong enough to justify the expense of treating water by deionisation, reverse osmosis, or both in centres where tap-water aluminium is high. Expand
Role of aluminum in dialysis dementia.
TLDR
The temporal relation between periods of high water-aluminum content and the appearance of new cases supports the view that aluminum may play a role in the causation of dialysis dementia. Expand
Osteomalacia due to phosphate depletion from excessive aluminium hydroxide ingestion.
TLDR
The results have shown that the arousal effect of levodopa seen in hepatic coma cannot be attributed to defective brain dopamine synthesis, but whether it is due to the flushing away of false neurotransmitters accumulating in the brain in liver failure requires further study. Expand
Composition of the domestic water supply and the incidence of fractures and encephalopathy in patients on home dialysis.
TLDR
Patients who undergo dialysis in areas where water contains high aluminium concentrations should be supplied with deionisers, and water supplied to patients with fractures or encephalopathy contained significantly less calcium and fluorine and significantly more aluminium than that piped to patients without these complications.

TLDR
A survey of 1293 patients in eighteen dialysis centres in Great Britain showed a highly significant rank correlation of the incidence of both fracturing dialysis osteodystrophy and dialysis encephalopathy with the aluminium content of water used to prepare dialysate. Expand
