Cytotoxic potency of mycotoxins in cultures of V79 lung fibroblast cells.


In addition to dietary mycotoxin intake, exposure by inhalation is possible and may result in local effects in the lung. As a first approach to assess the potential local impact of inhaled mycotoxins, the cytotoxicity of 14 different mycotoxins was determined in V79 cell cultures, which served as an in vitro surrogate for lung cells. Cell viability was… (More)
