Journal Article
CAMACHO-MUÑOZ, D., WAACK, J., TURNER, A.D., LEWIS, A.M., LAWTON, L.A. and EDWARDS, C. 2021. Rapid uptake and slow depuration: health risks following cyanotoxin accumulation in mussels? Environmental pollution [online], 271, article ID 116400. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2020.116400

Freshwater cyanobacteria produce highly toxic secondary metabolites, which can be transported downstream by rivers and waterways into the sea. Estuarine and coastal aquaculture sites exposed to toxic cyanobacteria raise concerns that shellfish may ac...

Degradation of okadaic acid in seawater by UV/TiO2 photocatalysis: proof of concept. (2020)
Journal Article
CAMACHO-MUÑOZ, D., LAWTON, L.A. and EDWARDS, C. 2020. Degradation of okadaic acid in seawater by UV/TiO2 photocatalysis: proof of concept. Science of the total environment [online], 733, article ID 139346. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.139346

The consumption of contaminated shellfish with marine toxins causes adverse socioeconomical, environmental and health impacts. The marine toxin okadaic acid (OA) provokes diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) syndrome characterized by severe gastroint...
