  10. Exploiting Natural Products-Based Therapeutics for Aflatoxin Mitigation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD152003

    Aflatoxins are a paradigm among fungal produced mycotoxins that are present in food supplies and are strongly associated with increased risk forthe development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Currently, there are no known countermeasures that can selectively mitigate aflatoxin toxicity andthe available options are only symptomatic treatments. To meet this challenge, we propose to harness the microbio ...
