Part 1 – Mold 101 – MycoTOX Profile & OAT: Using Them to ID Mold Patients


James Neuenschwander, MD


Watch James Neuenschwander, MD (Dr. Neu) in a one-hour presentation on how to diagnose a mold-toxic patient starting with when to suspect that mycotoxins might be a part of your patient’s symptom survey or routine lab results.

He also looks at the Organic Acid Test (OAT) as a tool to recognize a patient who has biochemical evidence of mold colonization and toxicity.

Finally, he reviews the importance of the MycoTOX Profile and identifies other evaluations that will help you firmly diagnose the mold-toxic patient.


At the end of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify signs, symptoms, and findings on routine labs that should alert them to the possibility of a mold-toxic patient.
  2. Recognize the markers on an organic acid test (OAT) that would suggest toxicity.
  3. Use a mycotoxin screen to identify patients that have an exposure to mycotoxins.
  4. Differentiate between a patient that has mold colonization and one that does not.
  5. Identify the tools that can be used to determine if a patient with mycotoxins in their urine is symptomatic from those mycotoxins.
