Organophosphorus compounds (OPs) are being used as insecticides and warfare agents. OP insecticides represent an important problem of public health, causing around 200,000 deaths annually. The World Health Organization has pointed to the necessity to introduce new medical practices that improve the results of classical treatments. Many studies have shown that the administration of phosphotriesterases (enzymes that detoxify OPs through hydrolysis) is a promising treatment of persons poisoned… CONTINUE READING
