Many industrial emissions and the exhaust of vehicles contain heavy metals . Cadmium, (Cd) is one of these heavy metals and is emitted in the gas and dust remnants of some factories like copper smelters. Cadmium has a half-life of greater than ten years in human and thus accumulates in the body over the time. It is a potentially neurotoxic pollutant and approximately 50% of the body burden of cadmium can be found in the kidney. Cadmium produces proximal tubule dysfunction and tissue injury…

EVALUATION OF EFFECTIVENESS OF MYRRH GUM EXTRACT ON SOME BIOCHEMICAL AND HISTOLOGICAL PARAMETERS IN MALE RATS INDUCED CHRONIC RENAL FAILURE (CRF)
The objective of the study was to test water extract of Commiphora molmol by trying to treat chronic renal failure that induced by Cadmium chloride CdCl2. at a concentration of 5 mg /kg body. wt/day
The protective effect of arabic gum extract against lead acetate toxicity albino rats
Background: Arabic gum is a complex polysaccharide, a mixture of sugars and hemicelluloses composed of Arabic acid nucleus, it is found in nature as slightly acidic calcium, magnesium, potassium or

TLDR
It seems highly unlikely that gum Arabic has a palliative effect on renal failure through an anti‐oxidant mechanism.
The bioinorganic chemistry of cadmium in the context of its toxicity.
Cadmium is known for its toxicity in animals and man as it is not used in these species. Its only role in biology is as a zinc replacement at the catalytic site of a particular class of carbonic
Effect of cadmium on antioxidant status in alloxane-induced diabetic rats
TLDR
Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), plasma and erythrocyte selenium (SE), plasma ceruloplasmin (Cp), and vitamin E (vit E) were determined in four groups of rats and the ery Throcyte Se was lower in the experimental groups than in the controls.
Oxidative stress as a mechanism of chronic cadmium-induced hepatotoxicity and renal toxicity and protection by antioxidants.
The role of oxidative stress in chronic cadmium (Cd) toxicity and its prevention by cotreatment with antioxidants was investigated. Adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were injected sc with 5 micromol
Age dependency of selenium and cadmium content in human liver, kidney, and thyroid.
TLDR
Investigating autopsy tissue samples obtained from fetal life up to adulthood in Styria revealed very low tissue selenium concentrations and low cadmium burdens for the Styrian population that was not exposed occupationally.
Early Markers of Cadmium Nephrotoxicity - Biological Significance and Predictive Value
One of the earliest manifestations of cadmium (Cd) nephrotoxicity is an increased urinary excretion (UE) of low or high molecular weight (Mr) proteins. The increased UE of low Mr proteins (e.g.
Isoflurane impairs antioxidant defence system in guinea pig kidney
TLDR
Isoflurane impairs the antioxidant defence system and this oxidant stress may play a part in the isoflurane-induced renal toxicity.
Cadmium-induced apoptosis and changes in expression of p53, c-jun and MT-I genes in testes and ventral prostate of rats.
TLDR
It is shown that apoptosis is an early mechanism of acute tissue damage by cadmium in the testes and ventral prostate, and that the enhanced expression of MT-I in the liver could protect this organ from Cadmium-induced cytotoxicity (apoptosis) and carcinogenicity.
A comparison of hepatocyte cytotoxic mechanisms for Cu2+ and Cd2+.
TLDR
It is concluded that Cu2+-induced cytotoxicity occurs as a result of a mitochondrial 'ROS' formation independently of cytosolic 'Ros' formation due to redox cycling.
Cadmium contamination of vegetable crops, farmlands, and irrigation waters.
TLDR
The main sources of Cd contamination of vegetable crops via farm soils and irrigation waters are reviewed, as are the influence of residual sludges used as fertilizers and the indiscriminate use of pesticides.
