Carcinogenicity in Animals

Rats fed a diet supplemented with maize contaminated with the F. moniliforme that had caused an outbreak of LEM in horses all developed hepatic nodules, cholantiofibrosis, or cholangiocarcinomas within 6 months.

The carci-nogenicity of FB1 has been directly assessed in a study in which a semipurified diet containing 50mg/kg of pure (>90%) FB1 was fed to rats.
