INTRODUCTIONMycotoxins are structurally diverse compounds produced by filamentous fungi. Contamination of foods and feeds with mycotoxins is a significant problem worldwide (Hussein and Brasel, 2001). The major Fusarium mycotoxins occurring in cereal grains, animal feeds, and forages are the trichothecenes, zearalenone (ZEN), and fumonisins. Other important Fusarium mycotoxins include moniliformin ...

I think this is a very helpful contribution to our understanding of mycotoxicoses in pigs. Despite the limitations of this type of meta-analysis, it is very interesting to see the quantitative differences in feed intake and weight gain of pigs comparing individual and multiple co-contaminant challenges. This certainly helps us understand the increased severity of response when pigs are fed natural ...

Introduction Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by molds (fungi) that can infest crops pre-harvest and can continue to flourish under sub-optimal storage conditions. Grains with a high moisture content are particularly unstable and prone to mold proliferation and possible mycotoxin production. Excess rainfall at harvest and at key periods during the growing season can be a major promoter of myco ...

INTRODUCTIONThe biogenic amines are biologically active compounds synthesized from amino acids. Feed-borne biogenic amines are most commonly synthesized by spoilage microorganisms and are usually considered to be potential toxins (Eggum et al. 1989). By-products that have undergone some degree of spoilage are generally considered to be the richest sources of biogenic amines. These would include me ...

Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by molds (fungi) which are toxic when consumed in significant amounts by livestock. The resulting pathological syndromes are referred to as mycotoxicoses.Mold growth on grains and subsequent mycotoxin synthesis is regulated by numerous factors of which moisture content is usually the most important. Toxigenic fungi generally grow best under humid, warm, aerobic ...
