Ochratoxin A is a mycotoxin frequently found as a contaminant both in food and in animal feed. It can reach humans through the food chain and can then be excreted in biological fluids, one of which is human milk; it can therefore be transmitted from mother to child during breast-feeding. This fact prompted us to carry out the present study, aimed at the(More)
A study was undertaken to evaluate the total aflatoxin content in naturally contaminated eggs. Two pools of eggs from laying hens were collected after 2 and 7 days of treatment with aflatoxin B1 (AFB1). An HPLC method has been developed for the determination of AFB1, aflatoxin M1 (AFM1), aflatoxin B2a (AFB2a) and aflatoxicol (Ro) both in free form and after(More)
BACKGROUND With the development of genetically modified crop plants there has been a growing interest in the approaches available to assess the potential allergenicity of novel gene products. For additional assessment of the potential allergenicity of expressed proteins, informative data can be generated using animal models. Soybean is one of the major(More)
The occurrence and amount of residues of ochratoxin A (OA) in poultry tissues and organs were investigated in a trial aimed at measuring the effects of contamination approaching the patterns more frequently found in natural situations (i.e., small doses of OA in the diet for long periods). Hubbard male broilers and laying hens were treated with an(More)
A study was performed to determine aflatoxin residues in tissues and organs of male broilers and hens that had been fed a diet contaminated with 50 micrograms/kg aflatoxin B1 (AFB1). Residue levels of AFB1, aflatoxicol (Ro), aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) and aflatoxin B2a (AFB2a) were determined by an HPLC method and, with the exception of AFB2a, were detected in the(More)
The effects of combined administration of ochratoxin A (OA) and aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) on the occurrence and the levels of residues of mycotoxins in poultry have been investigated. Male broilers and laying hens were fed from 14 days old with standard diets contaminated with 50 micrograms/kg OA and 50 micrograms/kg AFB1. Two groups of broilers and hens were(More)
Each productive system manager knows that finding the optimal trade‐off between reducing inventory and decreasing the frequency of production/ replenishment orders allows a great cut‐back in operations costs. Several authors have focused their contributions, trying to demonstrate that among the various dynamic lot sizing rules(More)
36 samples representative of the 1981 Italian durum wheat crop were separated by an industrial Italian milling process and the products obtained analyzed by AAS for their Pb, Cd, Cr, Cu, Zn content. The results obtained were: Pb ranging from 0.04 to 0.80 ppm, Cd from 0.02 to 1.39 ppm, Cr from 0.05 to 1.60 ppm, Cu from 1.8 to 39.7 ppm and Zn from 8.8 to(More)
