Biological context of Diethion


Anatomical context of Diethion

  • Cholinesterase activities were measured in plasma and in red blood cells from 6 goats after iv injection of the organophosphorus insecticide ethion at 3 different dose levels--2 mg/kg, 5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg [3].
  • Reactivation of cholinesterase activity in blood cells and plasma by means of pralidoxime was very efficient during the first 24 hr after administration of ethion, but was insignificant after 72 hours [3].
