Title Methods of measuring exposure to anticholinesterase insecticides.
Bibliographic information 1973, Vol.24, No.4, p.357-365. Illus. 27 ref.
Abstract Communication to the Swedish-Yugoslav symposium on pesticides (Milocer, Yugoslavia, 4-8 Dec. 1972). Many methods for cholinesterase activity determination have been suggested and compared, but only a few have been found suitable for the routine monitoring of occupational exposure to anticholinesterase compounds. The factors determining the choice and applicability of a method are discussed, with particular reference to the differences between organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides. Results of studies on volunteers and workers exposed to anticholinesterases are also presented.
Descriptors (primary) cholinesterase monitoring; exposure tests; insecticides
Descriptors (secondary) organophosphorus compounds; comparative study; human experiments; carbamates
