Fumonisin B1 and ochratoxin A are mycotoxins of importance to public health and agro-economics. Although much is known about their cellular toxicity and carcinogenesis in animals, there are no reports of adverse effects on immune cells (leukocytes) or on the immune modulation of the molecular messengers (cytokines) in humans. This study was designed, therefore, to determine and compare the morphological effects of fumonisin B1 and ochratoxin A on lymphocytes and neutrophils harvested from the… CONTINUE READING
