Enzymatic antagonism of mivacurium-induced neuromuscular blockade by human plasma cholinesterase.


BACKGROUND Mivacurium chloride is a bis-benzylisoquinolinium nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, hydrolyzed by butyrylcholinesterase (PCHE). The dose-response relationships for PCHE after mivacurium have not been studied. Therefore, this study was designed to establish dose-response relationships for PCHE as an antagonist of mivacurium-induced… (More)
