Factors affecting the toxicity of the dinoflagellate, Gambierdiscus toxicus, and the development of ciguatera outbreaks

This project confirmed that the benthic dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxicus is an origin of putative ciguatoxin precursors called gambiertoxins. It was recently found in French Polynesia that gambiertoxins could be extracted from biodetritus containing wild G. toxicus and that gambiertoxins were...

Production of antibodies against toxins involved in ciguatera fish poisoning

Sufficient pure ciguatoxin (0.5 mg of CTX-1) has been isolated from moray eel viscera to allow the immunisation of mice and screening of antibodies to ciguatoxin. It is determined that in vivo immunisation techniques were most likely to yield antibodies using related toxins as models of ciguatoxin....
