Abstract

Court-ordered monitoring of blood cholinesterases (ChEs) from orchard workers in Washington State is underway. In 2008, the mean red blood cell acetylcholinesterase (AChE, EC 3.1.1.7) activity was 9.65 ± 1.11 μmoles/min/ml (n = 1,793) and the mean serum (BChE, 3.1.1.6) activity was 5.19 ± 0.90 μmoles/min/ml (n = 1,811). Determinations were made using the Ellman assay and automated equipment of Pathology Associates Medical Laboratories (PAML), Spokane, Washington.
