Título Effect of exposure to organophosphorus compounds on S-cholinesterase in workers removing poisonous depots
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1982, Vol.8, No.3, p.222-226. 9 ref.
Resumen Biological monitoring and control of safety precautions against parathion, malathion and methylparathion was performed by measurement of serum cholinesterase (SCh) activity of 62 workers. SCh activity was depressed in the majority compared with preexposure values. Levels returned to baseline when exposure ceased; some workers needed about 6 months for this to occur. Values were never pathological, nor were there symptoms of poisoning. Measurement of SCh activity is an adequate and sensitive method of monitoring exposure to organophosphorus compounds.
