In recent years there has been a notable concern on the genetically modified (GM) food safety. It was probably triggered by introduction of these transgenic products to the food market, resulted in them becoming a controversial topic. The aim of this systematic review was to present available data in the published articles concerning the effects of GM food on human health. We referenced over 60 studies of GM food published in scientific journals. In spite of this clear assessment, it is worth… Expand

According to the information reported by the WHO, the genetically modified (GM) products that are currently on the international market have all passed risk assessments conducted by nationalExpand
A literature review on the safety assessment of genetically modified plants.
An equilibrium in the number research groups suggesting, on the basis of their studies, that a number of varieties of GM products are as safe and nutritious as the respective conventional non-GM plant was currently observed. Expand
The impact of genetic modification of human foods in the 21st century: a review.
The benefits of genetically modified foods apparently far outweigh the risks, regulatory agencies and industries involved in GM food business should increase public awareness in this technology to enhance worldwide acceptability of GM foods. Expand
Adequacy of methods for testing the safety of genetically modified foods
Comments by Lachmann, Sykes, and Gosden are disappointing because they reflect a failure to understand the new, and apparently unwelcome, dialogue of accountability that needs to be forged between scientists and the public. Expand
Assessment of the health impact of GM plant diets in long-term and multigenerational animal feeding trials: a literature review.

  • 2012
Evidence is presented to show that GM plants are nutritionally equivalent to their non-GM counterparts and can be safely used in food and feed and that a 90-day feeding study performed in rodents is generally considered sufficient to evaluate the health effects of GM feed. Expand
New Analysis of a Rat Feeding Study with a Genetically Modified Maize Reveals Signs of Hepatorenal Toxicity
It is observed that after the consumption of MON863, rats showed slight but dose-related significant variations in growth for both sexes, and Chemistry measurements reveal signs of hepatorenal toxicity, marked also by differential sensitivities in males and females. Expand
The effect of multigenerational diet containing genetically modified triticale on immune system in mice.
The obtained results indicate that multigenerational use of feeds for rodents containing the GM-triticale leads to expansion of the B cell compartment in the secondary lymphoid organs, but it is not caused by malignant processes or the allergic response. Expand
Safety of plant-made pharmaceuticals: Product development and regulatory considerations based on case studies of two autologous human cancer vaccines
Guidelines issued by regulatory agencies for the development of plant-made pharmaceutical (PMP) products provide criteria for product manufacturing and characterization, safety determination,Expand

In this article, protein- and DNA-based methods employing western blots, enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay, lateral flow strips, SouthernBlots, qualitative-, quantitative-, real-time- and limiting dilution-PCR methods, are discussed. Expand
In vivo antimutagenic properties of transgenic and conventional soybeans.
The results suggest that TS and CS have antimutagenic properties and are not toxic under the tested conditions, suggesting cytotoxic effects related to the treatment. Expand
