  1. Cholinesterase and self-reported pesticide exposure among pregnant women.

    Article - En anglais

    Ascertainment of exposure to cholinesterase-inhibiting pesticides in pregnant subjects is complicated by altered enzyme activity that results from metabolic changes associated with pregnancy.

    Nevertheless, this study found a high correlation (Pearson chi-square=13.67, p=.008) between classification of pesticide exposure using self-reported interview information and plasma cholinesterase activity for 203 pregnant women for whom three trimester cholinesterase values were available.

    All plasma cholinesterase activity values were referenced, by trimester, to a larger sample of 1 050 plasma cholinesterase values from 535 pregnant women.
