1. Johnson NM, et al. (2010). Findings suggest that the incidence and level of aflatoxins and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon exposure was less than that observed in a high-risk population; however, participants consuming higher amounts of foods prone to aflatoxin contamination may be more vulnerable to exposure and interactions with other environmental/biological factors (i.e., hepatitis C virus). diet 1-hydroxypyrene | Aflatoxin M1 Study subjects United States urine 1-hydroxypyrene | Aflatoxin M1 Details
2. Groopman JD, et al. (2014). In this study we have found that aflatoxin exposure is ubiquitous among at least some of the rural populations of Nepal and Bangladesh, as assessed by a robust mass spectrometry-based albumin adduct biomarker.

3. Lai H, et al. (2014). The findings of this study indicate that occupational aflatoxin B1 airway exposure might be associated with the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma among factory workers.

4. Chen C, et al. (2018). Malnutrition and Enteric Disease Study (MAL-ED) Relatively low aflatoxin exposure at 24 months was not linked with growth impairment, while fumonisin exposure at 24-36 months based on the UFB1 biomarkers may contribute to the high growth impairment rate among children of Haydom, Tanzania; which may be associated with their breast feeding and weaning practices. aflatoxin B1-lysine adduct | Aflatoxins | fumonisin B1 | Fumonisins Children Tanzania, United Republic of plasma | urine aflatoxin B1-lysine adduct | fumonisin B1 Details developmental growth
5. Mitchell NJ, et al. (2017). Malnutrition and Enteric Disease Study (MAL-ED) Exposure to aflatoxin (a mycotoxin common in maize and groundnuts) has been associated with childhood stunting in sub-Saharan Africa; in an effort to further our understanding of growth impairment in relation to mycotoxins, biospecimens from a cohort of children in Bhaktapur (Nepal) were assessed for aflatoxin exposure at 15, 24, and 36 months of age. age Aflatoxins Children Nepal serum aflatoxin B1-lysine adduct Details
6. Jager AV, et al. (2014). We performed a longitudinal assessment to evaluate the short-term exposure to aflatoxins in Sao Paulo (Brazil) by determination of urine levels: aflatoxin M1 was found (but there was no significant difference among the mean levels in four sampling periods), and the levels indicate a low short-term exposure to aflatoxins through the diet. diet Aflatoxins Study subjects Brazil urine Aflatoxin M1 Details

8. Yard EE, et al. (2013). Kenya AIDS Indicator Survey (KAIS) Our findings suggest that aflatoxin exposure is a public health problem throughout Kenya, and it could be substantially impacting human health. Aflatoxins Pregnant females | Study subjects Kenya serum aflatoxin B1-lysine adduct Details
9. Mizrak D, et al. (2009). We have documented that in viral hepatitis patients, aflatoxin exposure is significantly higher than in healthy subjects in Turkey and it may play an important role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. diet | disease Aflatoxins Controls for disease:Hepatitis, Viral, Human | Subjects with disease:Hepatitis, Viral, Human Turkey serum Aflatoxin B1 | aflatoxin B2 | aflatoxin G1 | aflatoxin G2 Details
