Sperm count depression in pesticide applicators exposed to dibromochloropropane.
The results suggest that the testicular toxicity of DBCP for men may occur in a shorter period than was previously reported, that the effect may be reversible in men with mild sperm count depression, and that public health measures might be directed at controlling specific application techniques.

Protecting agricultural applicators from over-exposure to cholinesterase-inhibiting pesticides: perspectives from the California programme.
California's requirement for medical supervision of applicators regularly handling Toxicity Category I and II organophosphate and carbamate cholinesterase-inhibiting pesticides is examined from aExpand
Cholinesterase activity depression among California agricultural pesticide applicators.
Pesticides most frequently associated with cholinesterase depressions exceeding California threshold values included mevinphos (Phosdrin), oxydemeton methyl (Metasystox-R), methomyl (Lannate), and acephate (Orthene); these pesticides included organophosphates in toxicity categories I and II and one carbamate in toxicity category I.

Occupational illnesses from cholinesterase-inhibiting pesticides among agricultural applicators in California, 1982-1985.
Overall, the analysis identified a need for improving occupational health surveillance and the regulations governing worker health and safety. Expand
Inhibition and Recovery of Brain Cholinesterase Activity in House Flies Poisoned with Organophosphate and Carbamate Compounds
It was found that at the stage of hyperactivity and early paralysis in poisoning a shift occurred in the optimum substrate concentration and this might be due to a transitory competitive stage in the cholinesterase inhibition with certain organophosphates prior to phosphorylation of the enzyme and the dephosphorylation involved in recovery.
