SUMMARY: This study was conducted to investigate the effects of fluoride on pancreatic digestive enzyme activities and ultrastructure in young pigs. Three groups of crossbred barrows were exposed to 100, 250, and 400 mg F – /kg (from NaF) in their diets for 50 days. Compared to a control group, the activities of pancreatic lipase and protease (but not amylase) were significantly decreased. Pancreatic acinar cells showed markedly swollen mitochondria and loss of mitochondrial cristae…

TOXIC EFFECTS OF FLUORIDE ON KIDNEY FUNCTION AND HISTOLOGICAL STRUCTURE IN YOUNG PIGS
The effects of chronic fluoride exposure on kidney integrity and histological structure, along with effects on associated enzymes and metabolite changes, were investigated in young pigs. Twenty-four
Effect Of Sodium Fluoride On The Thyroid Follicular Cells And The Amelioration By Calcium Supplementation In Albino Rats: A Light And An Electron Microscopic Study.
Sodium fluoride was the first fluoride compound used in the fluoridation of drinking water and it is still commonly used for that purpose to prevent dental caries. It exerts toxic effects on many
Role of Vitamin E in Combination with Methionine and L- carnosine Against Sodium Fluoride-Induced Hematological, Biochemical, DNA Damage, Histological and Immunohistochemical Changes in Pancreas of Albino Rats.
Excessive fluoride ingestion has been identified as a risk factor for fluorosis and oxidative stress. The present study was aimed to evaluate vitamin E in combination with methionine and L- carnosine
Increased apoptotic lymphocyte population in the spleen of young chickens fed diets high in fluorine.
.SUMMARY: Three hundred one-day-old avian broilers were divided into four equal groups of 75 that were fed for 42 days as follows: a control diet containing 23 mg F/ kg and three high F diets
Effect of maternal exposure of fluoride on oxidative stress markers and amelioration by selected antioxidants in developing central nervous system of rats
TLDR
The administration of antioxidants vitamin E, vitamin C, selenium and zinc produced a promising accost and timely intervention to the aggravated impairment during highly vulnerable early stage of life.
Effect of Silymarin Supplementation on Nickel Oxide Nanoparticle Toxicity to Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Fingerlings: Pancreas Tissue Histopathology and Alkaline Protease Activity
TLDR
NiO-NPs affected pancreatic tissue and its function in a dose-dependent manner, while dietary silymarin helped fish to sustain digestive capacity, while future researches should focus on the ecological outcomes of pollutants induced toxicity.
Ultra Structural Changes in Rat Thyroid Gland Exposed to Fluoride
Thyroid is the largest among vertebrate endocrine glands and is unique in that it stores secretory product (thyroid hormone) extracellularly. The thyroid follicle is the functional histological unit
Cell-cycle blockage associated with increased apoptotic cells in the thymus of chickens fed on diets high in fluorine.
TLDR
Excess dietary F in the range of 400-1200 mg/kg caused histological lesions, G(0)/G(1) arrest and cellular apoptosis in the thymus, which inhibited the development of thymUS and finally led to impaired cellular immune function.

TLDR
F fluoride causes excessive production of NO, LPO and oxygen free radicals, which can damage seriously the structure and function of soft tissues, and the mechanism of fluoride injuring soft tissues is suggested.
