United Nations Environment Programme ; Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations ; Russian Federation (1984)

Micotoxicoses are alimentary diseases of a non-infectious character, and no reproduction of micromycetes in the organism has been established. The etiopathogenesis of mycotoxicoses is caused by the toxic products of the fungal cell itself (whether dead or alive) or by secondary fungal metabolites formed on the dead substrate, which is infected by the fungi.
