Four methods for measuring serum cholinesterase activity have been applied to sera of normal individuals and of patients shown to be sensitive to short-acting muscle relaxants of the succinyldicholine type. They have been assessed according to their ability to differentiate between sensitive and insensitive individuals on the basis of enzyme activity measurements alone. The method described, based upon that of Dietz et al. [Clin. Chem. 19, 1309 (1973)], in which propionylthiocholine is used as… CONTINUE READING
