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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
