Título Morphocytochemical studies of peripheral blood leukocytes in mechanics exposed to pesticides
Título original Morfocitohimičeskie issledovanija lejkocitov periferičeskoj krovi mehanizatorov rabotavših s pesticidami [en ruso]
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1987, No.8, p.8-11. Illus. 7 ref.
Resumen Medical examinations of 206 mechanics aged 20-50 years occupationally exposed during 4 years to various groups of pesticides revealed morphocytochemical changes in neutrophilic leukocytes which were characterised by toxic granularity, decreases in glycogen and lipid content, inhibition of redox enzymes (myeloperoxidase and acid phosphatase), and increase in alkaline phosphatase activity. A decrease in acid phosphatase and increases in lactate and succinate dehydrogenesis were also identified in lymphocytes. These changes in peripheral leukocytes show the high sensivity of the blood to pesticide exposure and can be used as diagnostic criteria.
