Several probiotics are known to bind aflatoxin B(1) (AFB(1)) to their surfaces and to adhere to intestinal mucus. In this study, preincubation of two probiotic preparations with either AFB(1) or mucus reduced the subsequent surface binding of mucus and AFB(1), respectively, in a strain-dependent manner.
