We’re excited to announce a new publication in Frontiers in Public Health (Environmental Health and Exposome). This article uses toenail samples to assess arsenic speciation and metallomics to assess prostate cancer cases in the Atlantic PATH population. This research was supported with funding from the Canadian Cancer Society/Prostate Cancer Canada, New Brunswick Health Research Foundation, Nova Scotia Health Authority, and Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute. Our findings indicate that toenails are a biomarker for altered arsenic speciation in prostate cancer cases and may have greater utility than urine in this context.
