Fluoride has long been known to influence the activity of various enzymes in vitro. Latterly it has been demonstrated that many effects primarily attributed to fluoride are caused by a synergistic action of fluoride plus aluminum. Fluorinated chemicals are of growing importance, with applications in medicine. Fluorine substitution has profound effects on the properties of organic compounds. The very high electronegativity of fluorine can modify electron distribution in the molecule, affecting… Expand

TLDR
Since the discovery of molecular fluorine by Henri Moissan, fluorinated products have found numerous biological applications and are featuring significantly in such diverse areas as the provision of anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory agents, antibiotics and general anesthetics, anti-parasitic and central nervous system agents, and in cardiac therapy.

[Iatrogenic fluorosis. 2 cases].
TLDR
Two new cases of osteofluorosis are presented, attested by the existence of a bone X-ray densification, by histological lesions of hyperosteoidosis and a large increase in the fluorine content, which serve as a reminder of the indispensable precautions to be observed when prescribing fluorine salts in the treatment of post-menopausal osteoporosis.

PHARMACOLOGICAL AND TOXICOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF ALUMINOFLUORIDE COMPLEXES
SUMMARY: Laboratory investigations have often used aluminofluoride complexes for stimulation of various guanine nucleotide binding proteins. These complexes form spontaneously in aqueous solutionsExpand
Fluoridation: The Great Dilemma
MOST OF THE FOLLOWING reversible ill effects caused by fluoride were first recognized among aluminum workers in the 1930s by the Danish health officer Dr. Kaj Roholm. Not all the symptoms areExpand
Clinical toxicological aspects of fluoroquinolones.
TLDR
Overall, quinolones are as well tolerated as most other anti-microbial agents, however, their specific toxic potentials have to be considered when they are chosen for treatment of bacterial infections. Expand

TLDR
The present study suggests that the most important factor in methoxyflurane nephrotoxicity is the high IR-F of long duration established by urine formation, and that sevoflurane may not be safe when it is used for an extremely long period and at high concentrations. Expand
Renal toxicity with sevoflurane: a storm in a teacup?
TLDR
There is substantial data to document the safety of sevoflurane administered for shorter durations or at higher fresh gas flow rates, and if biotransformation by this pathway is responsible for the production of nephrotoxic metabolites of compound A, humans may be less susceptible to compound A renal toxicity than are rats.

This study describes alterations in the nervous system resulting from chronic administration of the fluoroaluminum complex (AlF3) or equivalent levels of fluoride (F) in the form of sodium-fluorideExpand
EFFECTS OF FLUORIDE ON MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FEMOML BONE IN GROWING RATS
TLDR
It is concluded that high fluoride intake decreases bone quality of the Femoral shaft and neck in young growing rats and sodium fluoride administered in lower concentration increases the strength of the femoral neck. Expand
Characterization of Thioether Compounds Formed from Alkaline Degradation Products of Enflurane
TLDR
It is demonstrated that alkaline degradation products of en flurane can be conjugated to thiol compounds, forming S-conjugates that could theoretically contribute to adverse renal effects observed occasionally with enflurane anesthesia. Expand
