Título Blood cholinesterase activity in workers exposed to the organophosphorus insecticide Ekatin
Título original Aktivnost kolinesteraza u krvi radnika izloženih organskom fosfornom insekticidu Ekatinu [en serbocroata]
Información bibliográfica 1973, Vol.24, No.2, p.107-116. 15 ref.
Resumen To evaluate the exposure level in a pesticide formulating plant, 16 workers engaged in the production of Ekatin, a 20% solution of thiometon (S-[2-(ethylthio)ethyl]0,0-dimethyl ester), were medically supervised for 6 weeks. The acute toxicity of thiometon had been determined in preliminary animal experiments and its inhibitory action on human blood cholinesterase examined in vitro. The results, which are tabulated, were used to evaluate the hazard to which pesticide workers are exposed and to select appropriate methods for measuring blood cholinesterase activity.
