New reports indicate that the toxic alkaloid cylindrospermopsin occurs in cyanobacteria in Israel, Florida, South America, and Australia in drinking water sources. This toxin is now recognised as a potential threat to human health. Furthermore, we have recently demonstrated the mutagenicity of cylindrospermopsin in vitro in a human lymphoblastoid cell-line. Therefore it is essential to determine whether cylindrospermopsin is also carcinogenic in vivo. In this preliminary study, 53 mice were… CONTINUE READING
