||A multiyear study of blood cholinesterase activity in urban pesticide applicators
||May 1993, Vol.39, No.1, p.11-25. Illus. 15 ref.
||A study was made of blood cholinesterase activity in a cohort of urban pesticide applicators ranging from 1,680 to 3,800 workers. During the period 1981-1991, 208,788 blood samples were taken with an average of six samples per year from each worker. A total of 150 workers (0.44% of the cohort) were removed from exposure to cholinesterase-inhibiting insecticides because of decreased cholinesterase activity. No worker required treatment for signs of cholinesterase inhibition. There was no evidence of year-to-year changes in baseline cholinesterase values that were attributable to pesticide exposure.
