Abstract: A manuscript in the journal recently cited experimental rat data from two manuscripts to support plausibility of a thesis that ochratoxin A might be a cause of human testicular cancer. I believe that there is no experimental evidence that ochratoxin A produces testicular cancer in rats or mice.
Keywords: rat testicular tumor; mouse testicular tumor; ochratoxin A; fumonisin B1; DNA adducts
