Special Issue "Occurrence and Risk Assessment of Mycotoxins"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: mycotoxins; mycology; food; feed; human biological samples; cytotoxicity
In this Special Issue on Occurrence and Risk Assessment of Mycotoxins, papers describing the worldwide levels and occurrence of mycotoxins modified mycotoxins, masked mycotoxins) in various commodities are welcome, as are papers on the occurrence and co-occurrence of mycotoxins in human food and animal feed.
The control of mycotoxins in food and feed is a constantly evolving process, and the data we have obtained so far are very important for the realization the dietary exposure assessment and health risk assessment to mycotoxins in human and animal. Multiple mycotoxins in feed and food have been recognized by European regulatory bodies as emerging risks in food safety and security with regard to animal and human health. Beyond the most studied ones, though, the number of other mycotoxins and metabolites of potential but largely unknown risk in animals is formidable, and also, knowledge of combined exposure to mycotoxins in highly needed. Surveys using advanced analytic tools are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions for this Special Issue, in the form of original research, case studies, or review papers, shedding light on perspectives on occurrence and control of mycotoxins of various mycotoxins in different commodities and risk assessment.
