Yin-Hui Leong, Aishah A Latiff, Nurul Izzah Ahmad and Ahmad Rosma (2012). Exposure measurement of aflatoxins and aflatoxin metabolites in human body fluids. A short review. Mycotoxin Research 28(2): 79-87

Abstract :

Aflatoxins are highly toxic secondary fungal metabolites mainly produced by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus. Human exposure to aflatoxins may result directly from ingestion of contaminated foods, or indirectly from consumption of foods from animals previously exposed to aflatoxins infeeds. This paper focuses on exposure measurement of aflatoxins and aflatoxin metabolites in various human body fluids. Research on different metabolites present in blood, urine, breast milk, and other human fluids or tissues including their detection techniques is reviewed. The association between dietary intake of aflatoxins and biomarker measurement is also highlighted. Finally, aspects related to the differences between aflatoxin determination in food versus the biomarker approach are discussed.
