Research – Effect of mycotoxins on gut development

Mycotoxins are defined as secondary fungal metabolites, toxic to humans and animals. Worldwide, mycotoxins have a significant impact on human and animal health, economies and international trade, making feed contamination by mycotoxins an area of great concern. However, how do mycotoxins relate to the immune system? In literature, there are several reports of mycotoxins negatively effecting it.

Animal immune systems are modulated during early life due to stimulus given through diet, microbiota colonisation and gastrointestinal mucosa. To what degree, and how, can mycotoxin exposure during early life modulate the immune system of young animals?
