Lipophilic toxins associated with diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) in scallops, Patinopecten yessoensis, collected in Hokkaido, Japan were quantified by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS). Pectenotoxin-6 (PTX6) and yessotoxin (YTX) were the dominant toxins in the scallops, although the percentages of these toxins were di#erent depending on the production area or the sampling period. The quantitative results obtained for the scallops in LC/MS and in mouse bioassay (MBA) were

It is suggested that this discrepancy is due to poor detection of YTX by MBA. These results indicate that LC/MS is a better method than MBA in terms of sensitivity and accuracy to quantify known lipophilic toxins, including YTX.
