Systemic effects of nickel-containing dental alloys: analysis of nickel levels in serum, liver, kidney, and oral mucosa of guinea pigs


Pages: 961-966
PMID: 1813913

In this study, absorption of nickel in the serum, liver, kidney and oral mucosa of guinea pigs was examined.

Levels of nickel in experimental and control animals were found to increase over time.
