Trichothecene Mycotoxins Activate Inflammatory Response in Human Macrophages1
Results indicate that human macrophages sense trichothecene mycotoxins as a danger signal, which activates caspase-1, and further enables the secretion of IL-1β and IL-18 from the LPS-primed cells.
WHO guidelines for indoor air quality : dampness and mould
The review concludes that the most important effects are increased prevalences of respiratory symptoms, allergies and asthma as well as perturbation of the immunological system.
Stachybotrys chartarum, trichothecene mycotoxins, and damp building-related illness: new insights into a public health enigma.
Solving the enigma of whether Stachybotrys inhalation indeed contributes to DBRI will require studies of the pathophysiologic effects of low dose chronic exposure to well-characterized, standardized preparations of S. chartarum spores and mycelial fragments, and, coexposures with other environmental cofactors.
Detection of Airborne Stachybotrys chartarum Macrocyclic Trichothecene Mycotoxins in the Indoor Environment
The data indicate that airborne macrocyclic trichothecenes can exist in Stachybotrys-contaminated buildings, and this should be taken into consideration in future indoor air quality investigations.
Effects of trichothecene mycotoxins on eukaryotic cells: A review
The major products of the trichothecene mycotoxin biosynthetic pathway produced in a species– and sometimes isolate–specific manner by cereal–pathogenic Fusarium fungi include T–2 toxin,
