Organophosphate compounds are responsible for a large number of accidental and/or suicidal exposures and have been used also for warfare and terrorism. The mechanism of toxicity is by inhibition of cholinesterase. Oximes are the only enzyme reactivators clinically available but clinical experience with oximes is disappointing. There is a gap between(More)
Metoclopramide (MCP) is a dopamine receptor antagonist and serotonin receptor agonist widely used as an antiemetic and gastric prokinetic drug. In addition MCP is a reversible inhibitor of cholinesterases from human central nervous system and blood. Metoclopramide may have a cholinesterase protective effect against inhibition by organophosphates. The(More)

Intoxications with organophosphorus compounds such as paraoxon (POX) are frequent. Oximes are the only enzyme reactivators clinically available. In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that l-lactate reduces the inhibition of plasma acetylcholine-esteratic activity (AChEA) (in vitro and in vivo) and plasma butyrylcholine-esteratic activity (BChEA) (at least(More)
