The hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis is target of cadmium toxicity. An update of recent studies and potential therapeutic approaches.

Abstract

This review presents an overview of neuroendocrine disruption induced by cadmium on the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HHG) axis. This review focuses on a number of hypotheses: (1) the HHG axis is a physiological target on cadmium toxicity; (2) cadmium could induce chronotoxicity on this neuroendocrine axis by disrupting the daily pattern of the HHG axis… (More)
