Lack of protective effects of dietary silicon on aluminium-induced maternal and developmental toxicity in mice.

Abstract

In recent years, it has been demonstrated that oral aluminium (Al) exposure can produce growth retardation, delayed ossification and an increased incidence of foetal abnormalities in rats and mice. On the other hand, it has been also suggested that silicon may have a protective effect in limiting oral Al absorption. The aim of the present study was to… (More)
