Abstract: The effects of fumonisin B1 (FB1) on the morphology of chicken peritoneal macrophages were studied. It was found that FB1-exposure caused nuclear disintegrations in peritoneal macrophages. The number of macrophages experiencing nuclear disintegration increased with the rise in the dose of FB1 from 6 to 18 micrograms ml-1. The finding implies that dietary intake of FB1 may damage the macrophages in consumers rendering the latter susceptible to infection.
