  1. Fulltext. Pesticide exposures, cholinesterase depression, and symptoms among North Carolina migrant farmworkers.

    Article - En anglais



    We conducted a clinic-based study of erythrocyte cholinesterase levels, pesticide exposures, and health effects among farmworkers and nonfarmworkers to determine risks for exposure and associated morbidity.


    Two hundred two farmworkers and 42 nonfarmworkers were recruited sequentially at two community health centers.

    Erythrocyte cholinesterase levels were measured colorimetrically.

    Questionnaires obtained data on demographics, occupational history, exposures, and symptoms.


    Cholinesterase levels were significantly lower among farmworkers (30.28 U/g hemoglobin) than among nonfarmworkers (32.3 U/g hemoglobin).
