Quercitin and Cernitin are not in themselves toxic to rats. When administered at the time of intoxication of the animals with ammonium fluoride, they reduced the noxious effects of the toxic agent in the liver and lungs. It is suggested that Quercitin and Cernitin might play a protective role during prolonged exposure to ammonium fluoride. Neither ammonium fluoride nor Quercitin or Cernitin seem to exert any effect on the stomach.
