Título Occupational exposure to organophosphate pesticides.
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1975, Vol.30,, No.2, p.98-103. 28 ref.
Resumen 23 subjects chronically exposed to organophosphate pesticides were subjected to a battery of highly sensitive tests to evaluate central nervous function. The exposed subjects, who had no neurological or behavioural complaints, performed as well as controls in each instance. Plasma and red blood cell cholinesterase levels were within the normal range in both groups, but plasma levels were lower in exposed subjects than the controls. The results suggest a relative resistance of higher nervous system function to mild chronic organophosphate exposure.
