Human erythrocytes were treated with the toxic pesticide DDVP 0,0 dimethyl -0-2,2-dichlorovinylphosphate. This caused an inhibition of the enzyme, acetylcholinesterase, contained in the erythrocytes of 88.8 on the average. The cells were washed and treated with four widely used acetylcholinesterase reactivators, and the activity of the enzyme was then measured. TMB-4 and Toxogonin proved to be more effective than 2-PAM or 2-PAS as reactivators.
