Physiological and toxicological responses in rats fed aflatoxin-contaminated diet with or without sorbent materials
Abstract Hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate (HSCAS), a sorbent compound obtained from natural zeolite, has demonstrated an ability to sorb aflatoxins (AFs) with a high affinity. Addition of thisExpand

Determinants of aflatoxin M1 in breast milk in a selected group of Egyptian mothers
In Egypt, there is a paucity of biomarker data on aflatoxin (AF) exposure. The study assessed the level and frequency of breast milk AFM1 as a biomarker of maternal exposure. Breast milk samples wereExpand

Urinary biomarkers of aflatoxin exposure in young children from Egypt and Guinea.
Aflatoxins are a major risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and thus understanding the pattern of aflatoxin exposure in different regions is important in order to develop targetedExpand

Raphanus sativus extract protects against Zearalenone induced reproductive toxicity, oxidative stress and mutagenic alterations in male Balb/c mice.
Zearalenone (ZEN) is a non-steroidal estrogenic mycotoxin produced by several species of Fusarium in cereals and agricultural products. It has been implicated in several mycotoxicosis in farm animalsExpand

Potential protective effect of HSCAS and bentonite against dietary aflatoxicosis in rat: with special reference to chromosomal aberrations.
Bentonite and hydrated sodium calcium aluminsilicate (HSCAS) were added at a level of 0.5% (w/w) to the diets containing 2.5 mg aflatoxins (AF) per kg diet and fed to male mature rats for 15Expand

Effect of aluminosilicates and bentonite on aflatoxin‐induced developmental toxicity in rat
Numerous studies have established that aflatoxin is a potent developmental toxin in animals. Previous research has demonstrated that a phyllosilicate clay, hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicateExpand

Protective role of Panax ginseng extract standardized with ginsenoside Rg3 against acrylamide‐induced neurotoxicity in rats
Acrylamide (ACR) is an industrial neurotoxic chemical that has been recently found in carbohydrate‐rich foods cooked at high temperatures. ACR was designated as a probable human carcinogen by IARCExpand
