SRP: The scientific literature for the use of contact lenses in industry is conflicting. The benefit or detrimental effects of wearing contact lenses depend not only upon the substance, but also on factors including the form of the substance, characteristics and duration of the exposure, the uses of other eye protection equipment, and the hygiene of the lenses. However, there may be individual substances whose irritating or corrosive properties are such that the wearing of contact lenses would be harmful to the eye. In those specific cases, contact lenses should not be worn. In any event, the usual eye protection equipment should be worn even when contact lenses are in place.
The worker should immediately wash the skin when it becomes contaminated.
Work clothing that becomes wet or significantly contaminated should be removed and replaced.
Workers whose clothing may have become contaminated should change into uncontaminated clothing before leaving the work premises.
SRP: Contaminated protective clothing should be segregated in such a manner so that there is no direct personal contact by personnel who handle, dispose, or clean the clothing. Quality assurance to ascertain the completeness of the cleaning procedures should be implemented before the decontaminated protective clothing is returned for reuse by the workers. Contaminated clothing should not be taken home at end of shift, but should remain at employee's place of work for cleaning.

【Disposal Methods】
SRP: The most favorable course of action is to use an alternative chemical product with less inherent propensity for occupational exposure or environmental contamination. Recycle any unused portion of the material for its approved use or return it to the manufacturer or supplier. Ultimate disposal of the chemical must consider: the material's impact on air quality; potential migration in soil or water; effects on animal, aquatic, and plant life; and conformance with environmental and public health regulations.
Group III Containers (both combustible and non-combustible) that previously held organic mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, or inorganic pesticides should be triple rinsed, punctured and disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Non-rinsed containers should be encapsulated and buried at a specially designated landfill site. /Organic mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, or inorganic pesticides/
A suggested disposal method converts the soluble fluoride ions to insoluble calcium fluoride ... a naturally occurring mineral (fluorspar) which can safely be added to a landfill. The method is as follows: add slowly to a large container of water. Stir in slight excess of Na2CO3 /sodium carbonate/. If fluoride is present add Ca(OH)2 /calcium hydroxide/ also. Let stand 24 hr. Decant or siphon into another container and neutralize with 6 m HCl /hydrochloric acid/ before washing down with large cxcess of water. The sludge may be added to landfill. Recommendable methods: Precipitation & landfill.
Precipitation & landfill: Industry wastes with a high fluoride concn are treated in two phases. By adding CaO /calcium oxide/, the soluble fluorides are precipitated as CaF2 /calcium fluoride/ until the concn has been reduced to 10 mg/l. The compact sludge is disposed of on special waste dumps.

Biomedical Effects and Toxicity

【Pharmacological Action】
- Substances that inhibit or arrest DENTAL CARIES formation. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed)
【Therapeutic Uses】
Fluorides, Topical
Sodium fluoride is indicated as a dietary supplement for prevention of dental caries in children in those areas where the level of naturally occurring fluoride in the drinking water is inadequate. In optimally fluoridated communities, sodium fluoride supplementation may be necessary in infants that are totally breast-fed or receive ready-to-use formulas or in children consuming nonfluoridated bottled water rather than tap water. Sodium fluoride supplementation may also be indicated in those situations where home water filtration systems remove fluoride. This usually occurs with reverse osmosis or distillation units, but not with carbon charcoal filters. Evidence that oral systemic fluoride supplements reduce dental caries in adults is lacking. /Included in US product labeling/
Sodium fluoride has been used to treat osteoporosis and otospongiosis in adults; however, its use is controversial and further studies are needed. The doses used in osteoporosis and otospongiosis have potential for toxicity, including skeletal fluorosis, osteomalacia, widening of unmineralized osteoid seams, and upper gastrointestinal ulceration.
Sodium fluoride is commercially available in multivitamin or multivitamin/iron preparations for use as oral fluoride supplements in infants and children.
MEDICATION (VET): ... USE ... as an anthelmintic against round worms (Ascaris) and stomach worms (Hyostrongylus) in pig. FOr this purpose ... usually mixed with dry food in concentration not exceeding 1%.
MEDICATION (VET): Anthelmintic, pediculicide, acaricide
In areas where there is a deficiency of fluoride in the drinking water, the incidence of dental caries can be reduced by admin sodium fluoride at a rate of 2.2 mg/day. However, to be of value the drug must be taken consistently during the years when the permanent teeth are being formed ... It is ... efficient to treat municipal water supplies so that the concn of fluoride ion is in the range 0.7 to 1.2 ppm. This may be done by adding sodium fluoride at a rate of 1.5 to 3.0 ppm.
The American Dental Association (ADA) and some clinicians recommend that, in patients without dental caries and with no apparent increased risk for dental caries, adequate water fluoridation or oral fluoride supplementation, combined with daily use of fluoridated dentrifice and semiannual topical applications of fluoride by dental professionals, may be appropriate. Individuals with, or at increased risk for, dental caries may require additional exposure to fluorides. Those with low rates of dental caries, or with a slightly increased risk, may require the addition of sodium fluoride 0.05% mouth rinse or 0.4% stannous fluoride gel. Those with moderate to high rates of dental caries, or with a moderately to greatly increased risk, also may require daily use of a neutral sodium fluoride 1.1% gel or an acidulated phosphate fluoride gel containing sodium fluoride 1.1%.
【Biomedical Effects and Toxicity】
During the growth phase of the skeleton, a relatively high portion of an ingested fluoride dose will be deposited in the skeleton. In infants and children with skeletal growth or individuals not consuming fluoridated drinking-water, up to 75% of the daily amount of fluoride that is absorbed may be incorporated into skeletal tissue. When a fluoride dose (e.g., a fluoride tablet or an infant formula diluted with fluoridated drinking-water) is given to infants, the retention will be strongly correlated with the absorbed fluoride dose per kilogram body weight: the higher the fluoride dose, the higher the fluoride retention. Retention of fluoride following intake of a fluoride supplement of 0.25 mg given to infants was shown to be as high as 80-90%. In a study with adults (aged 23-27 years) in which fluoride was given as a single intravenous injection, about 60% of the injected dose (3 mg fluoride as sodium fluoride) was retained.
Experimental studies performed in vivo with rats and in vitro with isolated segments of dog jejunum have indicated that fluoride (as sodium fluoride) is rapidly absorbed from the stomach and intestinal tract in animals. The rate at which fluoride is absorbed from the stomach is inversely related to the pH of the stomach contents
Although most of the fluoride ingested by laboratory animals is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, small amounts may also be absorbed from the oral cavity. In female Fischer F-344 rats intubated endotracheally (with oesophageal ligation) with 200 ul of a solution of sodium fluoride (Na18F), approximately 7% of the administered material was absorbed from the oral cavity within 2.5 hr. The absorption of fluoride (as sodium fluoride in solution) from the oral cavity of Syrian hamsters increased with decreasing pH of the solution.
The ingestion of fluoride with food retards its absorption and reduces its bioavailability. When fluoride was ingested as sodium fluoride tablets on a fasting stomach, the bioavailability of fluoride was almost 100%. When the same dose was taken together with a glass of milk, the bioavailability decreased to 70%; when it was taken together with a calcium-rich breakfast, the bioavailability was further reduced to 60%). The decrease in absorption associated with the ingestion of milk or food is probably due to binding of fluoride with certain food constituents, including calcium and other divalent and trivalent cations. When this occurs, the faecal excretion of fluoride will increase. The timing of fluoride ingestion in relation to a meal is critical with respect to fluoride bioavailability. When a few grams of a fluoride dentifrice are swallowed on a fasting stomach, the plasma peak is recorded within 30 min; however, when the dentifrice is swallowed 15 min after a meal, the peak does not occur until after 1 hr. The fluoride from most dental products intended for oral application is almost completely absorbed when swallowed.
After intake of sodium fluoride as tablets or a solution, fluoride is rapidly absorbed. Only a few minutes after intake, there is a rise in the plasma fluoride concentration, and the plasma peak usually occurs within 30 min. The height of the plasma peak is proportional to the fluoride dose ingested.
/Studies in man revealed/ peak serum levels are reached within a half hour, and levels fall promptly, with 20% of a given dose being excreted in the urine within 4 hr.
Fluoride crosses the placenta and is distributed into milk. Fluoride concentrations in milk are reported to range from less than 0.05 ppm (mg/L) to 0.13 ppm (mg/L) and generally remain constant regardless of the fluoride concentration in the woman's serum or drinking water. In one study, the concentration of fluoride in milk ranged from 2-8 ng/mL prior to and up to 2 hours after oral administration of a single 1.5-mg dose of sodium fluoride.
/Renal Clearance/ 1. Virtually all fluoride in plasma ... is ultrafilterable. 2. Renal excretion of radiofluoride depends on glomerular filtration & variable tubular reabsorption. 3. Probably, reabsorption is largely passive ... 4. Fluoride excretion incr when plasma concn is increased. 5. Procedures that increase urinary flow rate (eg, admin of osmotic diuretics, hypertonic saline, or diuretic drugs) increase the clearance of fluoride. /Fluoride/
In female rats, poisoned by oral admin of sodium fluoride, the skeletons of younger rats apparently are more efficient at removing fluoride from circulation than are those of older rats. [DE LOPEZ OH ET AL; TOXICOL APPL PHARMACOL 37 (1): 75-83 (1976)] PubMed Abstract
Rats given 18-fluoride ion as a radiotracer by continuous iv infusion of sodium fluoride for 3 hr showed at sublethal dose rates, blood fluoride concn nears steady state proportional to fluoride infusion rate. Blood, kidney, & lung had highest concn @ doses up to 3 mg fluoride/kg/hr, but @ 6 mg/kg/hr the fluoride of the liver, spleen & hollow organs incr sharply. Amt above this was not well processed by excretory mechanism. Rats infused 3 hr with 6 mg fluoride/kg/hr: during infusion fluoride concn of bone & other tissues was high, bone the highest. Of soft tissues, lung had the highest, brain, testes, & fat pads the least concn. During depletion phase, tissue fluoride concn decr, bone fluoride remained constant, & substantial amount remained in the lung.
Following oral admin of sodium fluoride to rabbits, the fluoride concn of plasma rose rapidly from a range of 0.01 to 0.07 ppm to a maximal level usually within 1 hr and then usually declined with a half-life of 4 or 5 hr. Doses of 100 to 140 mg/kg gave 1 hr concn of 12 to 14 ppm.
Following ingestion, soluble fluorides are rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract at least to the extent of 97%. Absorbed fluoride is distributed throughout the tissues of the body by the blood. Fluoride concentrations in soft tissues fall to pre-exposure levels within a few hours of exposure. Fluoride exchange with hydroxyl radicals of hydroxyapatite (the inorganic constituent of bone) to form fluorohydroxyapatite. Fluoride that is not retained is excreted rapidly in urine. In adults under steady state intake conditions, the urinary concentration of fluoride tends to approximate the concentration of fluoride in the drinking water. This reflects the decreasing retention of fluoride (primarily in bone) with increasing age. Under certain conditions perspiration may be an important route of fluoride excretion. The concentration of fluoride retained in bones and teeth is a function of both the concentration of fluoride intake and the duration of exposure. Periods of excessive fluoride exposure will result in increased retention in the bone. However, when the excessive exposure is eliminated, the bone fluoride concentration will decrease to a concentration that is again reflective of intake. /Fluoride/
Sodium fluoride and other soluble fluoride salts are readily and almost completely absorbed from the GI tract. The absorption of fluoride from ingested toothpaste containing sodium fluoride or sodium monofluorophosphate (MFP) also appears to be almost complete. A substantial portion of an oral dose of soluble fluoride may be absorbed in the stomach, and the rate of absorption may depend on gastric pH.
