2.  (U)  ABSTRACT 28 - IRAQI SCIENTISTS WERE SCHEDULED TO PRESENT
A PAPER ENTITLED "A CHRONIC DERMATITIS - A MYCOTOXICOSIS CAUSED BY
STACHYBOTRYS ATRA, FIRST REPORTED INSTANCE IN HUMAN".  AUTHORS TO
THIS PAPER INCLUDE AYAD A. ((AL-HEETI)), W.M. ((HASSAN)) AND N.M.
((SALEH)), ALL FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF PLANT PROTECTION, COLLEGE OF
AGRICULTURE ABU-GHRAIB, BAGHDAD, IRAQ.  THIS PAPER IDENTIFIED
RERIDINA (STACHYBOTRYS ATRA) AS BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MOLD
CAUSING CHRONIC DERMATITIS IN BABY DIAPERS.  THEY STATE THAT THIS
FINDING COULD BE THE FIRST TO INDICATE THE POSSIBILITY OF A HIDDEN
MYCOTOXICOSIS IN HUMANS.  STACHYBOTRYOTOXICOSIS CAUSED BY
STACHYBOTRYS IS ONE OF THE EARLIEST RECOGNIZED MYCOTOXICOSIS IN
ANIMALS; THE MOLD WAS PROVEN TO BE A TRICHOTHECENES PRODUCER.
THEY FURTHER INDICATE THAT CASES OF HUMANS BECOMING SICK AFTER
EXPOSURE TO STACHYBOTRYS CONTAMINATED STRAW EXIST.  THEY FOUND
RERIDIN A TO BE CYTOTOXIC AT 0.0001 NANOGRAMS (SEE FIELD
COMMENT).  ABSTRACT AT ENCLOSURE.
X-
COMMENTS:          ((FIELD COMMENT) - IDENTIFYING A NEW
TRICHOTHECENE PRODUCER COULD WELL BE RELATED TO CBW RESEARCH.  THE
AGENT SUSPECTED OF BEING EMPLOYED IN SOUTHEAST ASIA IS T-2, A
TRICHOTHECENE WHICH IS A POTENT "BLISTER AGENT LIKE" TOXIN.  ALSO
OF INTEREST IS THAT THESE SCIENTISTS MENTIONED SICKNESS RESULTING
FROM HUMAN EXPOSURE.  THIS MAY WELL BE LEGITIMATE WORK IN
IDENTIFYING DIAPER DERMATITIS; HOWEVER, GIVEN THE ADMITTED STANCE
THAT IRAQ WAS WORKING ON BW AGENTS, THIS RESEARCH SHOULD BE NOTED
FOR FUTURE CBW TARGETING).
