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. 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.

3. 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.

5. 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
6. 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
7. Shirima CP, et al. (2015). We investigated the association between child growth and aflatoxin and fumonisin exposure in Tanzania. Aflatoxins | fumonisin B1 Children Tanzania, United Republic of plasma | urine aflatoxin-albumin adduct | fumonisin B1 Details Growth Disorders
8. Liu L, et al. (2017). In an experimental situation, ambient coarse particulate matter (and its biological constituents of endotoxin and beta-1,3-D-glucan) may influence neural biomarker levels that reflect perturbations of blood-brain barrier integrity and systemic stress response in volunteers. beta-1,3-D-glucan | Endotoxins | Particulate Matter Study subjects Canada blood | urine Hydrocortisone | S100B | UCHL1 | Vanilmandelic Acid Details
9. Azziz-Baumgartner E, et al. (2012). Annual incidence of possible ciguatera fish poisoning was 4 per 1,000 person-years, and that of probable ciguatera fish poisoning was 7.5 per 1,000 person-years. Ciguatoxins Study subjects Puerto Rico Details Ciguatera Poisoning
10. Wang Z, et al. (2012). We examined the difference in airborne bioaerosol levels in residential indoor environments measured using a robotic personal sampling surrogate (PIPER Mk IV) and a stationary sampler equipped with identical sampling equipment. PIPER, which is designed to simulate resuspension of the dust from flooring by young children, measured significantly higher endotoxin concentrations compared to the stationary sampler.

11. Solomon GM, et al. (2006). We assessed potential human exposure to mold spores and endotoxin in New Orleans after the flooding of the city; unlike mold spores, the airborne endotoxin concentrations did not vary with flooded status or between indoor and outdoor environments. Endotoxins Study subjects United States air, indoor | air, outdoor Endotoxins Details
12. Semple S, et al. (2010). Airborne endotoxin concentrations in homes burning biomass fuels are orders of magnitude higher than those found in homes in developed countries where endotoxin exposure has been linked to respiratory illness in children.

13. Lai PS, et al. (2016). Shanghai Textile Worker Study In this workplace-based cohort of occupational organic dust and smoking exposure, we find that occupational endotoxin exposure is associated with persistent increases in lung density, lung mass, and airway thickening even after exposure cessation.
