daniel severino yes indeed, some mycotoxins can be adsorbed or bio-inactivated inside the gastrointestinal tract of animals. Never less other supportive strategies as immune system support, organ support and antioxidant system support are also needed. You can approach local Adisseo representative for more details.

Jonathan Tarus if we look at in vitro data than my answer is yes. Many clay minerals have good binding ability towards aflatoxins which are very polar molecules. Never less if you apply product in vivo and look at the biomarket aflatoxin M1 in milk you may see that your 98% can easily drop to 50-65%. Finally efficacy of each binder in vivo depends on concentration of mycotoxin and dosage of the pr ...

Monitoring of mycotoxins contamination in maize is very important. In India, analysis of maize samples revealed high level of mycotoxins contamination, particularly aflatoxins.

Dear Dr. Kryukov. The mycotoxins you refer to... DON, T-2 toxin or any other trichothecenes belong to less polar mycotoxins and their successful adsorption in vivo is questionable. As you refer to in vitro adsorption test, please be aware that in vitro adsorption tests do not reflect real efficacy of product in vivo and thus should not be taken as the only efficacy measurement criterion.

The term “mycotoxins” defines secondary fungal metabolites that cause biochemical, physiologic and/or pathologic changes in other species, which include vertebrates, other animal groups, plants, and microbes. Mycotoxins have low molecular weight molecules (Mw <700) and are toxic in low concentrations (Haschek & Voss, 2013). Even though hundreds of compounds have been isolated an ...

ELISA is not validated for finished feed, we do not even recommend ELISA for testing of finished feed. Never less, it is the best method for testing raw materials. You can always validate your ELISA equipment and method against reference methods as LC MS/MS or HPLC.

The presence of mycotoxins in feed and foodstuffs is an important concern for human and animal health. Aspergillus, Fusarium and Claviceps species of fungi are ubiquitous in nature and under ideal conditions, often infect crops and forages in the field, during storage, shipment and processing. Mycotoxins can cause serious health problems in animals and their presence in agricultural commodities ma ...

In the last 30 years it has become clearer that commonly occurring fungi growing in foods and feeds may produce toxins, known as mycotoxins. These toxins have been responsible for major epidemics in man and animals in the past. The most important epidemics have been: ergotism, which killed  thousands of people in Europe in the last millennium (Smith and Moss, 1985); alimentary toxic aleukia ( ...
