    Toxins (Basel) 6:1109-38. 2014
    ..First steps towards estimation of human BMAA exposure are to develop and use selective, inter-laboratory validated methods and to correctly report the analytical work. ..

    Elisabeth J Faassen
    Department of Environmental Sciences, Wageningen University, Wageningen, The Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 8:e65260. 2013
    ..Furthermore, the ELISA gave a positive signal for nearly each tested sample while no BMAA could be detected by LC-MS/MS. We therefore conclude that in its current state, the kit is not suitable for screening surface waters for BMAA...
  4. pmc Occurrence of the microcystins MC-LW and MC-LF in Dutch surface waters and their contribution to total microcystin toxicity
    Elisabeth J Faassen
    Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management Group, Wageningen University, PO Box 47, Wageningen 6700 AA, The Netherlands
    Mar Drugs 11:2643-54. 2013
    ..Given the frequent occurrence and possible high toxicity of MC-LW and MC-LF, it seems better to base health risk assessments on the toxicity contributions of different MC variants than on MC-LR concentrations alone. ..
  5. pmc A comparative study on three analytical methods for the determination of the neurotoxin BMAA in cyanobacteria
    Elisabeth J Faassen
    Department of Environmental Sciences, Wageningen University, Wageningen, The Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 7:e36667. 2012
    ..Recent evidence on BMAA accumulation in aquatic food chains suggests human exposure through consumption of fish and shellfish which expectedly exceeds exposure through cyanobacteria...

    Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management Group, Wageningen University, P O Box 47, 6700 DD Wageningen, The Netherlands
    Toxicon 60:378-84. 2012
    ..Dutch recreational waters are at this moment only screened for pelagic cyanobacterial species, the current bathing water protocol therefore does not protect humans and animals from negative effects of blooms of benthic cyanobacteria...
  7. pmc Dog poisonings associated with a Microcystis aeruginosa bloom in the Netherlands
    Miquel Lürling
    Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management Group, Wageningen University, Wageningen, The Netherlands
    Toxins (Basel) 5:556-67. 2013
    ..In both cases, microcystin-LR was the most abundant variant. This is the first report of dog deaths associated with a Microcystis bloom and microcystin poisoning in The Netherlands...

    Nature 481:357-9. 2012
    ..Although stochasticity prohibits prediction of the timing of critical transitions, our results suggest that indicators of slowing down may be used to rank complex systems on a broad scale from resilient to fragile...
