Abstract

The new cholinesterase reactivator alloxime, 10 mg/kg, shows a marked therapeutical benefits in acute intoxication rats with carbamine pesticides such as carbofuran, pirimor, elocron. The therapy of alloxime in combination with atropine, 10 mg/kg, results to their combined therapeutical effect, the toxicity of carbofuran, elocron, and pirimor (by LD50) decreasing by 8.4, 5.6, and 3.5 times, respectively). The mechanism of alloxime's therapeutical action is due to its capacity to restore cholinesterase activity in the central nervous system, normalizing neuromuscular transmission and hepatic and renal cytochrome P-450 levels.
