Title:
Enzyme-based assay for quantification of chlorpyrifos oxon in human plasma. 
Abstract:
Chlorpyrifos oxon (CPO) is the active metabolite of the pesticide chlorpyrifos that inhibits cholinesterases at high reaction rates. Chlorpyrifos is of major concern because it causes some ten thousand fatalities each year, mostly due to suicidal attempts. Notwithstanding, toxicokinetic studies on chlorpyrifos in humans are scarce and CPO has not been detected hitherto in human blood. Knowledge of the concentration and the time course of CPO in poisonings would be helpful to better design antido...    »
