Occupational and Environmental Aspects of Organophosphorus Compounds
Besides being a potential risk to humans and other living organisms, organophosphorus (OP) compounds also poses a risk to the environment. Production and placing pesticides on the market are underExpand
A Dried Blood Spot Method to Evaluate Cholinesterase Activity in Young Children
Although the amount of activity in the dried blood was consistently less than in the heparinized blood, the activity was significantly correlated: Spearman r = .6 (p = 0.01). Expand
Blind and naïve classification of toxicity by fish chromatophores
Chromatophore‐based cytosensors can discover toxicity in the absence of prior knowledge of the agent in question, and the categories of responses of the cells can be used to distinguish one toxic agent from another. Expand
Neuroprotective Role of Heat Shock Protein 70 in the Rostral Ventrolateral Medulla during Acute Mevinphos Intoxication in the Rat
Heat shock protein (HSP) is a family of highly conserved proteins that respond to stress and participate actively in cytoprotection. Within the HSP family, HSP70 is the major inducible member thatExpand
Neuroprotective role of heat shock protein 70 in the rostral ventrolateral medulla during acute mevinphos intoxication in the rat.
Results suggest that HSP70 induced in the RVLM during Mev intoxication provides neuroprotection against the organophosphate poison via prevention of cardiovascular depression. Expand
Sources of exposure to and public health implications of organophosphate pesticides.

  • 2003
Organophosphate pesticides continue to pose a risk to human health in the United States and among the public there should be an increased awareness of environmental exposure to organophosphates as well as of the threat of chemical warfare or terrorism. Expand
