Although there are many effective therapeutic agents for treatment of various fungal diseases, specific therapies against the toxins produced by these fungi are, at present, not readily available. Historically, naturally occurring trichothecene mycotoxicoses have affected both humans and livestock as a result of ingestion of fungal contaminated food or grain. These natural disease outbreaks are most effectively controlled by either avoidance or removal of the source of contamination.
