We compared measurements of urinary alkylphosphate metabolites and oxime-induced reactivation of plasma cholinesterase (P-ChE) and erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase (RBC-AChE) with measurements of foliar residues, skin and clothing contamination, and P-ChE and RBC-AChE activities among 20 Northern California peach orchard workers exposed to the(More)
Acetaldehyde, ethanol and non-protein bound amino acids were determined in broccoli florets (Brassica oleracea L. var. Italica cv. Marathon) stored for 7 days at 10°C in air or controlled atmospheres (0.125, 0.25, or 0.5% O2 alone or in combination with 20% CO2, or 20% CO2 in N2) followed by 2 days aeration. Floret yellowing was visible at days 7 and 9 in(More)
A low-variability method to reactivate blood cholinesterases (ChEs) after prior exposure of mammals, including humans, to ChE-inhibiting organophosphate esters (OPs) is presented. A concentration of 10 mM pyridine 2-aldoxime methochloride (2-PAM Cl) was incubated with intact red blood cells (RBCs) and assayed virtually free of interfering oxime and(More)
