Occupational high-dose exposure to metallic mercury can cause immune disturbances in sensitive individuals. Whether low-dose exposure to inorganic mercury from dental amalgam has this effect in humans is one of the issues related to the concept of oral galvanism and is supported by results of animal studies. This study explored some cellular immune factors (B- and T-lymphocytes, T4, T8, monocytes, neutrophilic, eosinophilic, and basophilic granulocytes, and large unstained cells) and some… CONTINUE READING
