Inflammatory and haematotoxic potential of indoor Stachybotrys chartarum (Ehrenb.) Hughes metabolites.

Abstract

Mould Stachybotrys chartarum (Ehrenb.) Hughes is known to pose a health risk in indoor environments. Most of its strains can produce several intra- and extracellular trichothecene mycotoxins. Complex secondary metabolites of stachybotrys isolates from mouldy dwellings/public buildings in Slovakia were intratracheally instilled in Wistar male rats (4 microg… (More)
