Background Aflatoxin is a highly toxic mycotoxin produces by a few Aspergillus species. Ingestion of aflatoxin contaminated food causes hepatic necrosis, cirrhosis and cancer in human and animal. Exposure to high level aflatoxin results in acute hepatic failure manifested by heamorrhage, edema, mental disorder and coma. Aflatoxin B1, the most toxic isoform, is produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxin M1 is the metabolic product of B1. M1 is found in the milk of cows that fed on contaminated feed and also in the fermentation broth of Aspergillus parasiticus. Chronic exposure to the toxin in milk and food impedes the normal growth and development in children.
