Transplacental carcinogenic mechanisms of black carbon exposure (T-CAB) Hasselt University
Ambient air pollution, including black carbon (BC), entails a serious public health risk because of its carcinogenic potential. Despite the respiratory system being the predominant entry route of particulate air pollution, various studies have indisputably demonstrated associations with a wide range of non-pulmonary health effects. A plausible explanation comprises particles translocation from the lungs into the circulation from which they ...

Impact of multi-mycotoxin exposure on kidney cancer risk: uniting a large-scale epidemiological design & next-generation sequencing coupled with public cancer genomic data mining Ghent University
Mycotoxins are fungal toxins that frequently contaminate food & feed, and can contribute to a
diversity of adverse health effects in humans such as carcinogenicity and nephrotoxicity. The kidney
is a major target of mycotoxins. In addition, multiple mycotoxins can co-occur on one crop due to
multi-fungal contamination. Interactions between co-occurring mycotoxins can be additive or
synergistic. To date, there is no ...
