What is Mycotoxin-induced liver damage -- Rubratoxin?

  • Mycotoxin-induced liver damage -- Rubratoxin: Damage or injury to the liver caused by exposure to a Mycotoxin called Rubratoxin. Rubratoxin is a toxin produced by a particular fungus (Penicillium rubrum and purpurogenum) which is most commonly found on cereal grains. Symptoms vary depending on the degree of exposure and hence extent of the liver damage or injury. Mild liver damage may cause few if any symptoms whereas severe damage can ultimately result in liver failure. Symptoms may be acute, subacute or chronic depending on the severity of the exposure. Factors such as age, race, gender, overall health and underlying liver problems may also influence a person's risk of developing liver problems and the severity of the symptoms. The toxin is also know to increase the risk of developing liver cancer.
