Cadmium (Cd) is a metal found in group 12 (IIB) of the periodic table of elements together with zinc, a metal with which it is often conjugated in nature. Occupational exposure to Cd occurs in many industrial settings, by cigarette smoking, diet and due to environmental pollution. International Agency for Research on Cancer and other epidemiological studies suggested that Cd can lead to prostate cancer and likely to kidney and lung cancers. Although epidemiological studies seem to point towards… Expand
An overview on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cadmium
TLDR
The present review represents an update about the knowledge of the possible role of Cadmium (Cd) in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) initiation and its progression and an unclear correlation between Cd and the onset of the disease can be pointed out. Expand

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small endogenous non-coding RNAs that regulate cancer initiation, development, angiogenesis, and therapeutic resistance. Metal exposure widely occurs through air, water, soil,Expand
A Cross-Sectional Study of the Association between Perfluorinated Chemical Exposure and Cancers related to Deregulation of Estrogen Receptors.
TLDR
PFCs were associated with increased odds of ovarian and breast cancers with a positive dose-response relationship and PFOA was more correlated with breast cancer and PFHS more with ovarian cancer. Expand
Dietary cadmium intake and risk of cutaneous melanoma: An Italian population-based case-control study.
TLDR
A positive non-linear association between dietary cadmium intake and risk of cutaneous melanoma in a Northern Italy population is observed, however, further studies are needed to elucidate this association, due to concerns about exposure misclassification, unmeasured confounding, and the limited and conflicting evidence from epidemiological findings.

Exposure to Toxic Heavy Metals Can Influence Homocysteine Metabolism?
TLDR
The results of this systematic review indicate that exposure to Pb, Cr, Cd, and Hg is connected with nonphysiological homocysteine levels or vitamin B12 and folate serum concentrations, which supports the role of blood metals as potential upstream modifiable risk factors to prevent the development of other established risk factors as hyperhomocysteinemia. Expand
Cadmium causes hepatopathy by changing the status of DNA methylation in the metabolic pathway.
TLDR
Go enrichment analysis showed that the genes were enriched in the biological process of "response to stimulus," and KEGG analysis revealed that metabolic pathways, like MAPK, PI3K-Akt and cAMP, had the largest number of enriched genes. Expand
Cadmium-induced adrenal cortical autophagy in rats: possible modulation by sildenafil.
TLDR
Cadmium might induce adrenal cortical autophagy in rats and Sildenafil might show an ameliorating effect probably through enhancement of antioxidant defense mechanism and modulation of NF-κb. Expand
Activation of the Erk/MAPK signaling pathway is a driver for cadmium induced prostate cancer.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that Erk/MAPK signaling is a major pathway involved in Cd-induced malignant transformation of normal prostate cells, and understanding these dominant oncogenic pathways may help develop optimal therapeutic strategies for PCa. Expand
Observational Study of the Association between Air Cadmium Exposure and Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness at Diagnosis among a Nationwide Retrospective Cohort of 230,540 Patients in the United States
Although studies have investigated cadmium and prostate cancer (PC) incidence and mortality, the role of cadmium in PC progression might be more clinically relevant. In this observational study, weExpand
Hepatoprotective effect of atorvastatin on Cadmium chloride induced hepatotoxicity in rats.
TLDR
Atorvastatin has beneficial effects in improving Cadmium chloride-induced antioxidative enzymes disturbance which may be contribute to improving liver function in male rats. Expand

Cadmium, Lung and Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review of Recent Epidemiological Data
TLDR
Overall, considering the results of the most recent studies does not suggest that the effect of cadmium on lung cancer increases with improvement of the study design but points to a lower relative risk in the groups exposed to Cadmium in the absence of arsenic and nickel. Expand
Cadmium-induced Cancers in Animals and in Humans
TLDR
Most cadmium used in the United States is a byproduct from the smelting of zinc, lead, or copper ores, and is used to manufacture batteries, and the mechanism of carcinogenicity appears to be multifactorial. Expand
Epigenetic alterations and occupational exposure to benzene, fibers, and heavy metals associated with tumor development (Review).
TLDR
The relationship between exposures to benzene, mineral fibers, metals and epigenetic alterations are discussed as the most important cancer risk factors during work activities. Expand

TLDR
Cadmium inhalation in rats results in pulmonary adenocarcinomas, supporting a role in human lung cancer, and various treatments can modify cadmium carcinogenesis including supplemental zinc, which prevents Cadmium-induced injection site and testicular tumors while facilitating prostatic tumors. Expand
Cadmium and Prostate Cancer: A Critical Epidemiologic Analysis
TLDR
In contrast to laboratory studies, epidemiological studies do not convincingly implicate cadmium as a cause of prostate cancer, and future Epidemiological studies that attempt to resolve the discrepancy between laboratory and epidemiological Studies of cadmum carcinogenesis may benefit from incorporating biological measures of cadMium exposure. Expand
Cadmium carcinogenesis.
TLDR
Most studies indicate cadmium is poorly mutagenic and probably acts through indirect or epigenetic mechanisms, potentially including aberrant activation of oncogenes and suppression of apoptosis, which would be relevant to oncogenesis in various cellular model systems. Expand
Case-control study of toenail cadmium and prostate cancer risk in Italy.
TLDR
Findings appear to support the hypothesis that cadmium exposure increases prostate cancer risk. Expand
Dietary cadmium intake and risk of prostate cancer: a Danish prospective cohort study
TLDR
In this study, there was no association between dietary cadmium intake and prostate cancer risk in a cohort of Danish men and educational level, smoking status, BMI, zinc or iron intake did not modify the association. Expand
