Scholarcy highlights

  • Fusarium is a fungal genus spread worldwide commonly associated to the production of several mycotoxins, where fumonisins are of major importance due to its prevalence
  • Even though many mycotoxins — especially fusariotoxins — are concomitantly found in a single matrix, there is no regulation on co-occurrence levels
  • It is of utmost importance to gather what is currently known about the combination of FBs, considered to be the most ubiquitous mycotoxins, with other frequently reported fusariotoxins, such as zearalenone, deoxynivalenol, nivalenol, T-2 toxin, and other emerging mycotoxins
  • This paper gives an overview about the toxic effects of fusariotoxins individually and combined to FB1, gathering the mechanisms and probable interactions between them
  • This important information may help to develop regulations covering multi-mycotoxins contamination, a growing concern of current days
