Título Fieldworkers' response to weathered residues of parathion - Worker poisonings due to paraoxon residues.
Información bibliográfica June 1977, Vol.19, No.6, p.406-414. Illus. 30 ref.
Resumen The first study (p.406-410) investigated the route of exposure of orange harvesters to parathion residues, the important toxic constituents of the foliar residue, and the residue levels that produced a biochemical response. Methods and results are described in detail. Mechanisms of parathion residue poisoning appeared to involve exposure of the whole body to paraoxon residues, which are absorbed through the skin in sufficient quantities to lead to intoxication. On p.411-414 the backgrounds to 3 cases of poisoning are decribed and the events interpreted.
