The aim of this study was to evaluate placental transfer of fluoride (F) in 30 pregnant women at the time of giving birth, who were living in Poznan, Poland, where the F concentration in the drinking water ranges from 0.4 to 0.8 mg/L. F concentrations of maternal and umbilical venous cord blood plasma were determined in samples drawn at delivery. The mean concentration of F in maternal plasma was significantly higher than in venous cord plasma (3.54 vs. 2.89 μmol/L, respectively), and both… Expand

Transplacental Transport of Fluoride, Calcium and Magnesium -
Background: In fluorosis endemic area, the amount of fluoride transferred to the fetus is significant in determining the early onset of fluorosis. The role played by placenta in transporting fluorideExpand
Role Of Placenta To Combat Fluorosis (In Fetus) In Endemic Fluorosis Area
TLDR
The role of placenta in the transport of F from the maternal blood to the fetus in fluorosis endemic area is determined and F concentrations of the newborn were well within the normal reference range. Expand
Community Water Fluoridation and Urinary Fluoride Concentrations in a National Sample of Pregnant Women in Canada
TLDR
Community water fluoridation is a major source of fluoride exposure for pregnant women living in Canada andUrinary dilution correction with creatinine and SG were shown to be interchangeable for the authors' sample of pregnant women. Expand
Fluoride exposure altered metabolomic profile in rat serum.
TLDR
The metabolites of urea cycle, such as urea and N2-Acetyl-l-ornithine, betaine as a methyl donor, were regarded to reflect the fluorosis degree, and could be the potential markers of fluorosis, contributing to the prevention and treatment of fluorideosis. Expand
Combination of fluoride and endosulfan induced teratogenicity and developmental toxicity in Swiss albino mice exposed during organogenesis
TLDR
The occurrence of visceral and skeletal malformations was more severe in the combination group, suggesting additive interaction of fluoride and endosulfan in inducing developmental toxicity in Swiss albino mice. Expand
Changes in Liver Antioxidant Status of Offspring Mice Induced by Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Gestation and Lactation
TLDR
Findings suggested that CAT was more susceptible to low-fluoride exposure in early life, while its relative mRNA abundance was enhanced which could result from the encouragement of the lowered CAT protein expression. Expand

Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico
TLDR
Higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 6–12 y. Expand
Developmental fluoride neurotoxicity: an updated review
TLDR
The recent epidemiological results support the notion that elevated fluoride intake during early development can result in IQ deficits that may be considerable, and recognition of neurotoxic risks is necessary when determining the safety of fluoride-contaminated drinking water and fluoride uses for preventive dentistry purposes. Expand
Effect of arsenic and/or fluoride gestational exposure on renal autophagy in offspring mice.
TLDR
It was observed that renal tissue of mice was highly sensitive to F than As, and the toxicity of the combined (As + F) exposure was significantly lower than that of the individual exposure, which could be attributed to the antagonism between As and F. Expand

Placental transfer of fluoride in pregnant women consuming optimum fluoride in drinking water.
TLDR
It was deduced that the placenta allows passive diffusion of fluoride from mother to foetus and does not act as a barrier in the placental transfer of fluoride. Expand
[The passage of fluoride across the placenta. An intra-uterine study].
TLDR
Fetal blood levels of fluorides in mothers who had taken sodium fluoride was statistically higher than in the controlled group; this demonstrates in a statistically significant way that fluoride passes across the placenta in the fifth and sixth months of pregnancy which is the time when the milk teeth start to develop in the uterus.

Oral administration of fluoride in pregnant women, and the relation between concentration in maternal plasma and in amniotic fluid.
TLDR
The results showed that F- concentration in amniotic fluid and, presumably, in fetal circulation, was not significantly different in groups taking 0.25, 0.75, 1.00 or 1.25 mg of F-, while the F- concentrations of the 1. Expand
URINARY FLUORIDE LEVELS FOR ASSESSMENT OF FLUORIDE EXPOSURE OF PREGNANT WOMEN IN POZNAN , POLAND
TLDR
The results indicate that prenatal systemic administration of fluorides, still recommended by some authors, should not be implemented in this population of pregnant women living in Poznan, Poland. Expand
Maternal-fetal transfer of fluoride in pregnant women.
TLDR
It is indicated that fluoride supplementation during the final trimester of pregnancy will significantly elevate cord plasma fluoride concentrations and that maternal and fetal plasma inorganic fluoride values at term will be higher than normal. Expand
Fluoride concentrations in the human placenta and maternal and cord blood.
TLDR
Results are consistent with the hypothesis that fluoride diffuses passively across the placenta, and the acid-stable organic fluoride averaged only 4 μM, which is similar to the valves found in human sera. Expand
Fluoride concentration in amniotic fluid and fetal cord and maternal plasma.
TLDR
Amniotic fluid fluoride levels were significantly higher at term than in midtrimester pregnancy, which may imply higher fetal urinary excretion of fluoride at term due to the lower sequestration of fluoride as the process of bone calcification is more complete. Expand

Umbilical cord fluoride serum levels may not reflect fetal fluoride status
TLDR
It is suggested that cord serum fluoride levels to not reflect fetal fluoride status, and low mixed cord serum levels of fluoride as compared with neonatal and maternal serum levels may be explained by placental sequestration of fluoride. Expand
