How to Treat Trichothecenes in Animals
To find out the recommended treatments for cats, small animals or domestic animals when inhaling mycotoxins and binders.
Tricothecenes are a
group of mycotoxins
which can lead to apoptosis or oxidative stress.
can be used against tricothecenes. Some studies have shown effects with vitamins E and C in protecting against acute toxicosis.
also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. In rabbits, quercetin was shown to diminish the apoptosis caused by T-2 toxin.
has been shown to prevent erythocyte membrane damage caused by T-2 toxin.
Other antioxidants mentioned in this
are glucomannan, amino acids, nucleotides, antimicrobial peptides, plant extracts, bacteria, polyunsaturated fatty acids and oligosaccharides.
There are also
methods available for mycotoxin poisoning. "These approaches include bacterial and yeast biotransformation and degradation, as well as mycotoxin-binding agents."
According to another
, "steroidal antishock and anti-inflammatory agents, such as methylprednisolone, prednisolone, and dexamethasone, have been used successfully in experimental trials".
If it was suspected that the mycotoxins were consumed via feed, then there has been some success with
reducing the bioavailability
of mycotoxins by adding mycotoxin detoxifying agents into the feed (mycotoxin binders or mycotoxin biotransforming agents). This
also mentions selenium and vitamin E.
