Determination of exposure of humans to selected mycotoxins with particular reference to aflatoxins.
Mycotoxins are poisonous secondary metabolites commonly produced by fungi and are involved in human disease conditions known as mycotoxicoses. There is evidence to show that food eaten by the rural Black population of ...
A cytotoxic evaluation of aflatoxin B1, zearalenone and their epoxide derivatives using human cell lines.
Since the discovery of mycotoxins in food, the thrust of biochemical and toxicological research has been carried out on animals which has proven to be uncoordinated and not easily extrapolated to humans. Over the last ...
Evaluation of the anthropometric parameters and fitness levels of prepubertal Indian soccer players.
Due to the lack of morphological data on prepubertal Indian male soccer players in South Africa, this study was undertaken on ninety male prepubertal subjects. The subjects were divided into three groups of thirty subjects ...
Studies on the isolation of the polymerase genes from the H1N1 influenza A virus.
Vaccines directed against the influenza virus become ineffective due to continuous mutation. An alternative approach might be to control replication at the genomic level by enzymatic methylation of the polymerase genes. ...
The cytotoxic effects of T-2 toxin on normal human lymphocytes.
T -2 toxin is an immunosuppressive mycotoxin that has been conjoined with several symptoms and diseases as early as the turn of the century, but whose mechanisms of action are still being investigated. Accordingly, this ...
Heart rate response and ECG monitoring in veteran squash players.
The incidence of sudden death during or after squash play has become a source of concern. In order to screen for coronary artery disease, exercise stress testing has been advocated, by the American College of Sports Medicine ...
The occurrence and detection of aflatoxin-macromolecular conjugates in humans.
Aflatoxin Bi (AFBi), a highly toxic fungal metabolite (mycotoxin) of certain strains of Aspergillus, has long been known to be carcinogenic in animal species. Accumulation of epidemiological evidence led to its classification, ...

Quantitative determination of fumonisin B1 in biological material.
The mycotoxin, fumonisin B1 is produced by the mould Fusarium moniliforme, a common contaminant of maize and maize products. Small doses (mg/kg) of ingested fumonisin B1 have been shown to cause diseases and even death in ...
