Testing of antidotes for organophosphorus compounds: experimental procedures and clinical reality.

Abstract

According to current knowledge, inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is a very important toxic action of organphosphorus compounds (OP). Hence, it is obvious to follow the AChE activity in order to quantify the degree of inhibition and to assess possible reactivation. Red blood cell (RBC)-AChE provides an easily accessible source to follow the AChE… (More)
