Mycotoxin contamination of food and feed represents a serious threat to public welfare, posing a health concern regarding consumption. This global food safety issue requires appropriate and objective scientific evidence for decision-making regarding food contaminants, emphasizing the need for proper health risk assessments, including accurate occurrence data and reliable overall food toxicology investigations, in order to protect both public health and global economic trade.
The toxicology of a large number of mycotoxins is still unknown, and understanding the mechanisms of action of mycotoxins at a comprehensive level from a holistic perspective is crucial. The impact of food processing, the discovery of modified and emerging mycotoxins, and mycotoxin co-occurrence represent research challenges in the food toxicology field.
Accordingly, the aim of this Special Issue is to gather both original research papers and review articles addressing the health effects induced by individual and combined mycotoxins, exploring the underlying mechanisms and modes of action, providing new analytical solutions for multiple mycotoxins’ determination, proposing innovative methodological works, and revealing new insights in the research area. We invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
