    Organophosphate insecticides are highly toxic to insects but are relatively less so to humans and domestic animals. Although specific organophosphates, such as triorthocresyl phosphate, nipafox, and trichlorofon compounds, are obviously neurotoxic, the situation is less clear for other organophosphate . Pope C.

    Organophosphorus poisoning is treated using drugs that block the action of acetylcholine i.e. atropine and drugs that regenerate the cholinesterase enzyme i.e. pralidoxime and obidoxime. Organophosphate poisoning is poisoning due to organophosphates (OPs). Organophosphates are used as insecticides, medications, and nerve agents. Symptoms include increased saliva and tear production, diarrhea, vomiting, small pupils, sweating, muscle tremors, and confusion. While onset of symptoms is often within minutes to hours, some symptoms can take weeks to : Organophosphates.

The successful management of organophosphorus (OP) pesticide poisoning depends on: the clinician possessing an understanding of the mechanisms of OP pesticide toxicity and applying them to the treatment options; accurate diagnosis and assessment of the severity of intoxication; maintenance of vital body functions and adequate clinical monitoring; further absorption of the OP pesticide being.

This text/reference book provides the most comprehensive coverage of anticholinesterase compounds (Organophosphates and Carbamates), which constitute the largest number of chemicals that are primarily used as insecticides in agriculture, industry, and around the home/: Hardcover.

Effects of Long-Term Exposure to Organophosphate Pesticides in Humans - Gulf War and Health - NCBI Bookshelf. This appendix briefly reviews the epidemiological evidence for the long-term health effects of human exposure to organophosphates (OP) used as pesticides“Pesticides” is an umbrella term for any chemicals designed for pest by: 1.

The book not only covers the anticholinesterase actions of organophosphates, but also other, presumably independent, effects, such as teratogenicity, delayed neuropathy, immunotoxicity, and behavioral toxicity. This volume pulls together a wealth of up-to-date information on the toxicology of this diverse and ubiquitous class of insecticides.

This text/reference book provides the most comprehensive coverage of anticholinesterase compounds (Organophosphates and Carbamates), which constitute the largest number of chemicals that are primarily used as insecticides in agriculture, industry, and around the home/garden.

Some OPs (nerve agents) have been used in chemical warfare and terrorist attacks, while some OPs and CMs have been. Organophosphorus pesticide self-poisoning is an important clinical problem in rural regions of the developing world, and kills an estimated people every year.

Toxicology of Organophosphate & Carbamate Compounds. The book is organized into nine sections, with a total of 49 chapters, to provide in-depth knowledge on various aspects of OP and CM.

Organophosphorus pesticide self-poisoning is a major clinical and public-health problem across much of rural Asia.1–3 Of the estimated deaths from self-harm in the region each year,4 about 60% are due to pesticide poisoning.3 Many studies estimate that organophosphorus pesticides are responsible for around two-thirds of these deaths5—a total of Cited by: Acute poisoning by organophosphorus (OP) compounds is a major global clinical problem, with thousands of deaths occurring every year.

Most of these pesticide poisoning and. The most common cause of cholinergic toxicity worldwide is exposure to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides. Exposure to these insecticides may be through inhalation of vapors, ingestion, or direct contact of the chemical with the skin or mucous membrane.

Introduction. Organophosphate (OP) poisoning continues to be a frequent reason for admission to hospitals and Intensive Care Units in developing countries.[1,2,3] The traditional approach to clinical features in acute OP poisoning has centered on receptor specific effects on muscarinic, nicotinic and central nervous system (CNS) receptors that result in diverse symptoms and signs.[4,5] This Cited by:   Sumithion, a synthetic organophosphate, is widely used as an agricultural insecticide and for control of tiger bug (Cicindela spp.) in larval rearing for experiment was conducted to examine the effects of sumithion on embryological and larval development of zebrafish Danio ized egg (n = ) and larvae (n = ) were exposed to six concentrations of sumithion (0, Author: Mohammad Shadiqur Rahman, S M Majharul Islam, Anamul Haque, Md.

Shahjahan. Overview. Organophosphates are a common class of insecticides. But large doses of organophosphates can also harm people and other animals. Organophosphate poisoning can occur when you’re exposed. Because of the large number of these compounds and the range of their toxic effects, the book assesses organophosphorus insecticides as a group, using a review of the world literature to identify the types of evidence available and the main points that should be considered when investigating the toxicity of individual compounds.

The h toxicity of four organophosphates (thiometon, disulfoton, malathion, and demeton-S-methyl, the oxygen analogue of thiometon) in the freshwater bivalve mollusc Dreissena polymorpha was tested using different nominal concentrations ranging between 6 and 50 mg/L.

Malathion is one of the safest organophosphates because of its selective toxicity; it is highly toxic to insects but much less toxic to mammalian species. The oral LD 50 in rats is mg/kg, and the dermal LD 50 in rabbits is 4, mg/kg. Aquatic toxicity of carbamates and organophosphates / Arun K.

Organophosphates represent a large family of pesticides where.Organophosphate Insecticides Organophosphates (OPs) are a class of insecticides, several of which are highly toxic.

Until the 21st century, they were among the most widely used insecticides available. Thirty-six of them are presently registered for use in the United States, and all can potentially cause acute and subacute toxicity.

For many years organophosphate pesticides considered the main option for a lot of people in many countries to manage different pests. It's more than 70 years now and OPs still use with certain purposes in gardens, fields and greenhouses as crop protection agents, or even at houses as public health agents.

Thus, year after year and with the repeating usage of organophosphate agents .
