Cadmium, a widespread toxic pollutant of occupational and environmental concern, is a known human carcinogen. The prostate is a potential target for cadmium carcinogenesis, although the underlying mechanisms are still unclear. Furthermore, cadmium may induce cell death by apoptosis in various cell types, and it has been hypothesized that a key factor in(More)
PURPOSE The quest for prognostic molecular markers in prostatic carcinoma is still in progress. Many proteins have already been screened by immunohistochemistry with the aim to find the most reliable indicator of progressive disease. In this study, we evaluated the expression of pRb2/p130, p107, p27(kip1), p53, mdm-2, and Ki-67 (MIB-1) by(More)
Solitary metastases to the small bones and/or to the soft tissue of the hands and feet (acrometastases) are rare. We report a case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with big toe metastasis revealed before the primary tumor became apparent. The best treatment for a single metastasis is always surgical excision, regardless of the lesion being synchronous or(More)
