Our study examined changes in the red blood system of rats under the influence of aluminium chloride administered in a physiological way with drinking water in the following doses : 0.5 g/l, 1 g/l and 2 g/l. The significant decrease of erythrocyte numbers, haemoglobin levels and haematocrit values which accompanied the highly significant statistical elevation in reticulocyte contents were observed in intoxicated animals. Also, the decrease of mean cell volume (MCV), average diameter of… Expand
Impact of Some Heavy Metals Toxicity on Behaviour, Biochemical and Histopathological Alterations in Adult Rats
| Animal welfare is a matter of societal concern and debate, its improvement should consider those aspects actually affecting animal’s health, through determining their impact on some welfareExpand
Ethological Problems and Learning Disability Due to Aluminum Toxicity in Rats
A total of 35 Sprague-Dawley adult rats were used to investigate the effect of aluminum toxicity on behavioral patterns of adult female rats and learning ability of offspring. Rats were allotted intoExpand
Vicia faba-Rhizobium leguminosarum system symbiotic relationship under stress of soil pH and aluminium.
This dissertation aims to provide a history of environmental engineering in Hungary from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year of the Velvet Revolution. Expand

Aluminum toxicity. Hematological effects.
Although microcytic anemia constitutes an evidence of chronic aluminum exposure, prolonged exposure could lead to a recovery of hematocrit and hemoglobin concentration values with an increase in red cell number. Expand
Morphologic and functional alterations of erythroid cells induced by long-term ingestion of aluminium.
The erythropoiesis impairment induced by Al may be a combined effect of direct action on circulating erythrocytes and interference with the cellular iron metabolism in erythroid progenitors. Expand

Aluminum decreased activities of acetylcholinesterase, glutathione reductase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, and lactate dehydrationase in the erythrocytes of the animals tested and an inhibitory effect of aluminum on the phagocytic activity of granulocytes was observed. Expand
Intestinal absorption of aluminium: effect of sodium and calcium
Aluminium (Al) is recognized as a toxin in patients with deficient renal function. Moreover, Al may play a role in some neurodegenerative diseases. It is hypothesized that more than one intestinalExpand
Reduced superoxide dismutase activity in erythrocytes of dialysis patients: a possible factor in the etiology of uremic anemia.
It was found that SOD levels in red cell hemolysate were significantly lower in dialysis patients and inhibition of SOD activity in the erythrocytes of Dialysis patients may contribute to their anemia. Expand
The effect of aluminium upon the activity of selected bone marrow enzymes in rats.
It is revealed that within the first days there will be an increase in enzyme activity in the bone marrow and simultaneously a decline in the activity of bone marrow could be observed which occurred later in the first course of the experiment. Expand
Ecotoxicology of Aluminium
Prophylactic action should be undertaken aimed at limiting the contact of humans with aluminium, and it should be eliminated from food, food additives and medicines. Expand
Mechanisms of aluminum-induced microcytosis: lessons from accidental aluminum intoxication.
The hypothesis that in some cases of aluminum-related microcytosis, a ferropenic mycrocitosis, as expression of erythroid ferropenia, may exist in spite of the presence of normal body iron stores is supported. Expand
Human erythroid cells are affected by aluminium. Alteration of membrane band 3 protein.
The present in vitro results suggest that Al may disturb human erythropoiesis through combined effects on mature erythrocytes and cellular metabolism in late erythroid progenitors. Expand
Action of lead(II) and aluminium (III) ions on iron-stimulated lipid peroxidation in liposomes, erythrocytes and rat liver microsomal fractions.
It is proposed that increased lipid peroxidation may contribute to the toxic actions of Pb2+ in humans. Expand
