||Variation in plasma cholinesterase activity among greenhouse workers, fruitgrowers and slaughtermen
||Mar. 1991, Vol.48, No.3, p.164-166. 6 ref. Illus.
||The purpose of the study was to compare the plasma cholinesterase (ChE) activities of 100 greenhouse workers and 43 fruitgrowers engaged in spraying insecticides with those of 113 slaughtermen who served as controls. The ChE activity in the greenhouse workers and fruitgrowers was not significantly lower than in the controls. Nevertheless the ChE activity of greenhouse workers declined with increasing exposure. The wearing of protective gloves appears to be of particular value for the safety of workers.
