Comparison Between the Effect of Diazinon and Malathion on the Amount of Cholinesterase Enzyme Activity in Spraying Labors at the Agricultural Section in the North of Iran, 2000

ABSTRACT

In order to study the effects of Diazinon and Malathion on human blood cholinesterase activity, 43 worker `s who spared them were examined. Malathion inhibited cholinesterase up to 37.5, 25 and 12.5% in 5, 40 and 20% of subjects, respectively. Diazinon reduced enzyme activity up to 37.5, 25, 12.5% in 20, 25 and 30% of mentioned individuals, respectively. According to achieved data, malathion inhibits human blood cholinesterase activity less than diazinon in the same conditions.
