Comparison of two in vitro activation systems for protoxicant organophosphorous esterase inhibitors. (1/305)

In order to perform in vitro testing of esterase inhibition caused by organophosphorous (OP) protoxicants, simple, reliable methods are needed to convert protoxicants to their esterase-inhibiting forms. Incubation of parathion or chlorpyrifos with 0.05% bromine solution or uninduced rat liver microsomes (RLM) resulted in production of the corresponding oxygen analogs of these OP compounds and markedly increased esterase inhibition in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells. Neither activation system affected cell viability or the activity of AChE or NTE in the absence of OP compounds. Although parathion and chlorpyrifos were activated by RLM, bromine activation required fewer steps and produced more esterase inhibition for a given concentration of chlorpyrifos. However, RLM activation of OP protoxicants produced metabolites other than oxygen analogs and may, therefore, be more relevant as a surrogate for OP biotransformation in vivo. This methodology makes the use of intact cells for in vitro testing of esterase inhibition caused by protoxicant organophosphate compounds a viable alternative to in vivo tests.  (+info)

Developmental cholinotoxicants: nicotine and chlorpyrifos. (2/305)

The stimulation of cholinergic receptors in target cells during a critical developmental period provides signals that influence cell replication and differentiation. Accordingly, environmental agents that promote cholinergic activity evoke neurodevelopmental damage because of the inappropriate timing or intensity of stimulation. Nicotine evokes mitotic arrest in brain cells possessing high concentrations of nicotinic cholinergic receptors. In addition, the cholinergic overstimulation programs the expression of genes that evoke apoptosis and delayed cell loss. Effects of cholinesterase inhibitors exhibit many similarities to those of nicotine. Chlorpyrifos administered to developing rats in doses that do not evoke signs of overt toxicity decreased DNA synthesis and caused shortfalls in cell numbers in brain regions enriched in cholinergic innervation. In embryo cultures, chlorpyrifos also evoked apoptosis during neurulation. However, chlorpyrifos also evokes noncholinergic disruption of cell development by interfering with cell signaling via adenylyl cyclase, leading to widespread disruption that is not limited to cholinergic systems. We have tested this hypothesis in vitro with PC12 cells, which lack the enzymes necessary to produce chlorpyrifos oxon, the metabolite that inhibits cholinesterase. Chlorpyrifos inhibited DNA synthesis in undifferentiated PC12 cells, which have relatively few cholinergic receptors. Furthermore, chlorpyrifos was more effective than nicotine and its effects were not blocked by cholinergic antagonists. When cells were allowed to differentiate in the presence of chlorpyrifos, cell replication was inhibited even more profoundly and cell acquisition was arrested. At higher concentrations, chlorpyrifos also inhibited neuritic outgrowth. Thus, chlorpyrifos elicits damage by both noncholinergic and cholinergic mechanisms extending from early stages of neural cell replication through late stages of axonogenesis and terminal differentiation. Accordingly, the window of developmental vulnerability to chlorpyrifos is likely to extend from the embryonic period into postnatal life.  (+info)

Dermal transfer of chlorpyrifos residues from residential surfaces: comparison of hand press, hand drag, wipe, and polyurethane foam roller measurements after broadcast and aerosol pesticide applications. (3/305)

Indoor residential pesticide applications present the potential for human exposures, particularly for small children. Personal contact with target and nontarget surfaces can result in transfer of pesticides to the skin, but the magnitude of such transfer is uncertain. This research compared surface sampling techniques [wipe and polyurethane foam (PUF) roller] with the removal ability of human skin following broadcast and total aerosol release applications of Dursban (Dow Elanco, Midland, MI), a residential formulation containing the insecticide chlorpyrifos. Hands were washed immediately after surface contact, following a protocol that included a laboratory-generated adjustment factor to account for incomplete removal of chlorpyrifos from skin. Chlorpyrifos transfer was similar for hand press and hand drag techniques, averaging approximately 1-6 ng/cm2 of carpet contacted. These amounts represented < 1% of the amount of chlorpyrifos deposited on the surfaces 3.5 hr earlier. Chlorpyrifos transfer from carpet to skin was 23-24 times lower than for wipe sampling and 33-36 times lower than for PUF roller sampling (p = 0.0007 and p = 0.0006 for broadcast and aerosol applications, respectively). Hand press sampling removed approximately 4.5 times less chlorpyrifos from nontarget furniture surfaces (12 ng/cm2) than did wipe sampling (56 ng/cm2; p = 0.009). Chlorpyrifos residues on carpet were substantially higher after broadcast applications than after aerosol applications, but residues on such nontarget surfaces as furniture were substantially higher for the aerosol application. This study indicates that human skin removes substantially less residue from carpets and furniture than either conventional wipe or PUF roller sampling methods following residential pest control applications of chlorpyrifos. Although this paper focuses on quantifying residue transfer from surface to skin using different surface sampling techniques, no attempt is made to quantify the amount of chlorpyrifos residue that is subsequently absorbed.  (+info)

Oral and dermal absorption of chlorpyrifos: a human volunteer study. (4/305)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the kinetics of elimination of urinary dialkylphosphate metabolites after oral and dermally applied doses of the organophosphate pesticide chlorpyrifos to human volunteers and to determine whether these doses affected plasma and erythrocyte cholinesterase activity. METHOD: Five volunteers ingested 1 mg (2852 nmol) of chlorpyrifos. Blood samples were taken over 24 hours and total void volumes of urine were collected over 100 hours. Four weeks later 28.59 mg (81567 nmol) of chlorpyrifos was administered dermally to each volunteer for 8 hours. Unabsorbed chlorpyrifos was washed from the skin and retained for subsequent measurement. The same blood and urine sampling regime was followed as for the oral administration. Plasma and erythrocyte cholinesterase concentrations were determined for each blood sample. The concentration of two urinary metabolites of chlorpyrifos--diethylphosphate and diethyl-thiophosphate--was determined for each urine sample. RESULTS: The apparent elimination half life of urinary dialkylphosphates after the oral dose was 15.5 hours and after the dermal dose it was 30 hours. Most of the oral dose (mean (range) 93% (55-115%)) and 1% of the applied dermal dose was recovered as urinary metabolites. About half (53%) of the dermal dose was recovered from the skin surface. The absorption rate through the skin, as measured by urinary metabolites was 456 ng/cm2/h. Blood plasma and erythrocyte cholinesterase activity did not fall significantly during either dosing regime. CONCLUSION: An oral dose of chlorpyrifos was readily absorbed through the skin and almost all of the dose was recovered as urinary dialkylphosphate metabolites. Excretion was delayed compared with the oral dose. Only a small proportion of the applied dose was recovered during the course of the experiment. The best time to collect urine samples for biological monitoring after dermal exposure is before the shift the next day. The amounts of chlorpyrifos used did not depress acetyl cholinesterase activity but could be readily detected as urinary dialkylphosphate metabolites indicating that the urinary assay is a more sensitive indicator of exposure.  (+info)

Pitfalls when determining tissue distributions of organophosphorus chemicals: sodium fluoride accelerates chemical degradation. (5/305)

This paper describes the tissue distributions of dichlorvos, an organophosphate, and chlorpyrifos-methyl, an organophosphorothioate, in a male individual who died after ingesting an insecticidal preparation containing these chemicals and the results of an in vitro stability study on dichlorvos and chlorpyrifos-methyl in blood and buffers. Tiny amounts of dichlorvos, 0.067 and 0.027 mg/L, were detected in the vitreous humor and cerebrospinal fluid, respectively. Although dichlorvos (0.082-8.99 mg/L or mg/kg) was detected in the thoracic aortic blood, thoracic inferior vena caval blood, pericardial fluid, bile, and spleen, it was strongly suggested that it had diffused postmortem from the stomach, which contained 879 mg, because no dichlorvos was detected in the other blood samples and tissues tested. Substantial amounts (0.615-4.15 mg/L) of chlorpyrifos-methyl were detected in all blood samples, and the order of its concentrations was as follows: pulmonary vessel blood > thoracic inferior vena caval blood > blood in the right cardiac chambers > blood in the left cardiac chambers approximately thoracic aortic blood > right femoral venous blood. The total amount of chlorpyrifos-methyl in the stomach was 612 mg. However, it was strongly suggested that virtually no chlorpyrifos-methyl diffused from the stomach into surrounding fluids and tissues postmortem because no chlorpyrifos-methyl was detected in the bile and little was found in the pericardial fluids. Neither compound was detected in the urine. In vitro experiments showed that dichlorvos (10 mg/L) almost disappeared from fresh (pH 7.4) and acidified (pH 6.2) blood samples within 24 and 72 h, respectively. However, 53 and 77% of the original amount of dichlorvos in 0.05M phosphate buffers at pH 7.4 and 6.2 were detected 72 h later. Chlorpyrifos-methyl (1 mg/L) was very stable in blood samples, regardless of the pH, during the 72-h study period, but in the pH 7.4 and 6.2 phosphate buffers, approximately 80% of the original amount had degraded after 72 h. These results indicate that organophosphates are degraded more rapidly by esterase activities than by chemical mechanisms and that organophosphorothioates are hydrolyzed chemically in aqueous solutions but are very stable in biological specimens and not metabolized by esterases. When sodium fluoride was added to blood samples, dichlorvos degraded completely within 15 min, and chlorpyrifos-methyl became very unstable. Thus, when analyzing samples to detect organophosphorus chemicals, this common preservative should not be added to fluid specimens.  (+info)

Changes in rat brain cholinesterase activity and muscarinic receptor density during and after repeated oral exposure to chlorpyrifos in early postnatal development. (6/305)

The effects of repeated oral exposures to the organophosphorus insecticide chlorpyrifos (CPS) on brain muscarinic receptor densities, together with cholinesterase (ChE) activity, were studied in early postnatal rats. Initially, the effects on esterases from lactational exposure to CPS were investigated in young rats by administering CPS (100, 150, or 200 mg/kg subcutaneously in corn oil) to dams 1 day postpartum, yielding a significant body burden of CPS in the dams for possible excretion in the milk. Brain ChE inhibition in pups was less severe than in dams, whereas liver carboxylesterase (CbxE) inhibition in pups was at the same level as in dams. Because of the limited brain ChE inhibition obtained following lactation, pups were exposed to CPS directly by gavage, using 3 dosing regimens to yield a dose response. The rats were gavaged with CPS in corn oil on alternate days from postnatal day (PND) 1 through PND 21. Rats in the low-dosage group received 11 treatments at 3 mg/kg, those in the medium-dosage group received 3 treatments at 3 mg/kg and 8 at 6 mg/kg, and those in the high dosage group received 3 treatments at 3 mg/kg, 4 at 6 mg/kg, and 4 at 12 mg/kg. ChE activity in brain homogenates were inhibited significantly by 29% and 63% in the low- and high-dosage groups, respectively, on PND 22 and by 17% in the high dosage group on PND 40. Muscarinic receptor densities in brain synaptosomes were reduced using 3H-N-methylscopolamine (NMS) and 3H-quinuclidinyl benzilate (QNB) as ligands, with the effects more prominent from 3H-NMS. Densities of both ligands recovered to the control level several days after terminating treatment. The results indicate that pups are apparently exposed to only limited amounts of chlorpyrifos and/or its oxon through the milk when dams are exposed to extremely high chlorpyrifos levels. In addition, repeated direct oral exposures of early postnatal rats to CPS will result in persistent brain ChE inhibition and will transiently reduce muscarinic receptor density.  (+info)

Gestational exposure to chlorpyrifos: dose response profiles for cholinesterase and carboxylesterase activity. (7/305)

This study investigates the in vivo dose response profiles of the target enzyme cholinesterase (ChE) and the detoxifying enzymes carboxylesterase (CaE) in the fetal and maternal compartments of pregnant rats dosed with chlorpyrifos [(O,O'-diethyl O-3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridyl) phosphorothionate], a commonly used organophosphorus insecticide. Pregnant rats were dosed daily (po) with chlorpyrifos in corn oil (0, 3, 5, 7, or 10 mg/kg) on gestational days (GD) 14-18. Animals were sacrificed 5 h after the last chlorpyrifos dose (time of maximum brain cholinesterase inhibition) for analysis of ChE and CaE activity in maternal blood, liver, brain, placenta, and fetal liver and brain. The in vitro sensitivity (i.e., IC50, 30 min, 26 degrees C) of CaE also was determined by assaying the activity remaining after incubation with a range of chlorpyrifos-oxon concentrations. In vivo exposure to 10 mg/kg chlorpyrifos from GD14-18 caused overt maternal toxicity, with dose-related decreases in ChE activity more notable in maternal brain than fetal brain. Dose-related effects were also seen with chlorpyrifos-induced inhibition of fetal liver ChE and maternal brain CaE activities. Gestational exposure caused no inhibition of placental ChE or CaE, fetal brain CaE, or maternal blood CaE. ChE activities in the maternal blood and liver, as well as fetal and maternal liver CaE, however, were maximally inhibited by even the lowest dosage of chlorpyrifos. The in vitro sensitivity profiles of CaE to chlorpyrifos-oxon inhibition were valuable in predicting and verifying the in vivo CaE response profiles. Both the in vivo and in vitro findings indicated that fetal liver CaE inhibition was an extremely sensitive indicator of fetal chlorpyrifos exposure.  (+info)

Studies of toxicity of dermally-absorbed nurelle D 550 EC preparations. (8/305)

The aim of the study was the evaluation of the toxic effect of a two-component, preparation Nurelle D 550 EC (500 g of chlorpyrifos and 50 g cypermethrin per 1 l), administrated dermally. Toxicity was evaluated from histological and ultrastructural studies of the internal organs and immunotoxic effects (evaluation of phagocytical and bactericidal activity of neutrophils). The preparation for dermal application was applied in 2 concentrations (200 mg/kg/day of chlorpyrifos plus 20 mg/kg/day of cypermethrin or 1000 mg/kg/day of chlorpyrifos, plus 100 mg/kg/day of cypermethrin). The preparation was administrated on the tail skin of female Wistar rats for 4 hours daily for a period of 4 weeks. After 28 days of the experiment, the animals were anaesthetised and blood was taken from the heart to evaluate the granulocyte system. The following organs were taken for histological studies: liver, kidney, lung, heart, spleen, thymus and lymph nodes. Ultrastructural studies were carried out on the lung, liver, kidney and heart. The results of the study showed that dermal application of the pesticide Nurelle D 550 EC resulted in slight morphological and ultrastructural changes in the liver, kidney, lung and heart. The preparation examined slightly elevated the bactericidal activity of neutrophils. The differences, however, were not statistically significant. The phagocytic reaction in animals of both experimental groups did not differ from that observed in control group  (+info)

WASHINGTON - Today in a speech on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator Tom Udall made the case for why Congress must act to ban the pesticide chlorpyrifos, a dangerous neurotoxin linked to brain damage in children. Udall said his Protect Children, Farmers & Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act is urgently needed after Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt rejected EPA scientists determination that all food applications of the pesticide are unsafe and that the chemical risks harm to children, farmers, and farmworkers. ‎Pruitt, saying the science isnt settled, put the decision off until 2022. Pruitts move came just weeks after meeting with Dow Chemical, the manufacturer of chlorpyrifos and a chlorpyrifos alternative..

In this research, the adsorption destructive process of chlorpyrifos (CP,O,O-Diethyl-O-3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinyl phosphorothioate) as a noticeable organophosphate pesticide using in agriculture on the nickel tungstate (NiWO4) nanoparticles catalyst was investigated and monitored via the 31P nuclear magnetic resonance (31PNMR). The effects of various experimental parameters such as catalyst dosage, contact time, initial chlorpyrifos concentration and temperature on the elimination efficiency of chlorpyrifos were surveyed. Nickel tungstate (NiWO4) nanoparticles were synthesized by hydrothermal method using NiCl2 and Na2WO4 as the precursors and source of Ni and W, respectively. The structural, morphological, crystal size and elemental composition of the pre-prepared nanoparticles powder were identified using Scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive micro-analysis (SEM-EDAX), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) techniques. 31PNMR results indicated that chlorpyrifos was
Though extensively documented, autism is still poorly understood. Possible factors include prenatal or neonatal chemical exposure that causes declined synaptic transmission. One chemical, the pesticide known as chlorpyrifos, has been shown to cause anatomical differences in the areas of rats brains that are linked to behavioral symptoms closely related to autism. With the knowledge of the increased susceptibility ofmales to prenatal drug exposure, it was hypothesized that male rats exposed to chlorpyrifos before birth would exhibit such symptoms. Two tests, an elevated plus maze and a Morris water maze, were used to test anxiety and cognition, respectively. Anxiety tests yielded no differences between rats prenatally exposed to the chemical, or between males and females. Similarly, cognition tests showed no such correlations. Though these results suggest no apparent connection between chlorpyrifos and autism-like behavior, it is still unclear whether the rats experienced internal anatomical change due

In 2020, Oregon became the 4th state to phase-out the organophosphate insecticide, chlorpyrifos. This law came about as a result of a 2-year legislative campaign led by Beyond Toxics to ban the use of chlorpyrifos. We fought for a complete ban, and we knew a phase-out was not enough.. Today we celebrate the EPAs August 18th decision to END the use of chlorpyrifos on all food crops, a ban that will also apply to Oregon. The EPA found that there are no safe levels of chlorpyrifos in food or in drinking water, so they are cancelling registered uses on food crops.. Our long-standing conviction that no one should be exposed to a chemical originally used as a warfare nerve gas compelled us to take action here in Oregon. Repurposed as an agricultural chemical by Dow Chemical, people are exposed to chlorpyrifos by inhaling or absorbing pesticide drift, by drinking water containing chlorpyrifos or by eating fruits and vegetables with toxic residues.

Chlorpyrifos is part of the organophosphate (OPs) class of pesticides, which were used in World War II as nerve agents. As potent neurotoxicants, organophosphates are extremely harmful to the nervous system, given that they are cholinesterase inhibitors and bind irreversibly to the active site of an enzyme essential for normal nerve impulse transmission. The scientific evidence of neurotoxic dangers associated with chlorpyrifos exposure is extensive and consistent. Epidemiological data also points to subpopulations that are disproportionately affected by chlorpyrifos exposures. Low-income African-American and Latino families, including farmworker families, continue to suffer the most, and this disproportionate impact creates an environmental justice issue that the agency must not continue to ignore. A 2016 study found lower IQ in children born to mothers who, during their pregnancy, were living in close proximity to chemical-intensive agricultural lands where OPs were used. A 2015 study found ...

EPAs proposed rule came on the day of a court-ordered deadline from the U.S. Court of Appeals Judge for the Ninth Circuit, M. Margaret McKeown. In August of this year, Judge McKeown ordered EPA to respond to a petition filed by Pesticide Action Network North America and the Natural Resources Defense Council nearly nine years ago. The lawsuit called on the agency to ban all uses of the insecticide in light of scientific evidence and public comments ignored by the agency after its cumulative risk assessment for organophosphate insecticides.. In 2012, EPA imposed no-spray buffer zones around public spaces, including recreational areas, schools, and homes to reduce bystander exposure risks. Earlier this year, the agency updated its 2011 preliminary human health risk assessment for chlorpyrifos, a report that was widely criticized by health and environmental groups. The update identified significant risks to children, farmworkers, and drinking water as a result of the chemicals use.. Chlorpyrifos ...
Chronic chlorpyrifos exposure in utero is associated with changes in social behavior, brain development, and developmental delays.[5] A long-term Columbia University study following children born before and after a ban on in-home use of chlorpyrifos took effect found that the children born before the ban had much higher exposure levels, tended to be smaller, have poorer reflexes, and weigh less.[6] Toddlers with higher exposures were behind in both motor and mental development by age three. They were also greater than five times more likely to be on the autism spectrum, greater than six times more likely to have ADHD-type symptoms, and greater than 11 times more likely to have symptoms of other attention disorders.[7] The Columbia study[8] and similar long-term studies conducted at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City[9] found lower IQs for children with prenatal chlorpyrifos exposure ...
Although chlorpyrifos is no longer legal for home use, approximately 6 million pounds are still used annually on corn, in orchards, and on other vegetable row crops. It contaminates our food, drinking water, and drifts into rural school yards and homes. Chlorpyrifos is still responsible for a substantial number of worker poisonings each year. Although government biomonitoring data indicates that the levels of chlorpyrifos in human urine has been reduced to half the amounts pre-cancellation, still its breakdown products have been detected in the bodies of three-quarters of the US population.. Moreover, federal scientific experts report that chlorpyrifos and other OP pesticides still in use on crops are harmful to almost 1,800 critically threatened or endangered species (see Vanity Fair, April 20, 2017) making it a threat to wildlife and ecosystems.. Over 60 scientists and medical professionals wrote in a 2016 letter to EPA, the impacts of chlorpyrifos on children raise serious ...
WASHINGTON - The Trump administration took a major step to weaken the regulation of toxic chemicals on Thursday when the Environmental Protection Agency announced that it would not ban a widely used pesticide that its own experts have linked to serious health problems in children..

The Environmental Protection Agencys recent decision allowing the continued use of chlorpyrifos has emboldened critics of the California Environmental Protection Agencys May proposal to cancel the insecticides registration. EPA expressly rejects a key part of Californias argument for a prohibition -- that chlorpyrifos harms childrens brains. Now, more questions are emerging about how the state agency reached its decision. Undoubtedly, this is new territory for the state agency.

The EPA is requesting comment on a proposal to revoke all tolerances for the insecticide chlorpyrifos in response to a court-ordered deadline. At this time, EPA is unable to make a safety finding as required under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) due to exposure to drinking water in certain watersheds.. In June 2015 EPA indicated its intention to issue a proposed rule revoking tolerances by April 15, 2016, to address previously identified drinking water concerns and in response to a petition from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA). This schedule would have allowed time for EPA to complete its additional analysis, taking into consideration the public comments received on its December 2014 human health risk assessment.. On August 10, 2015, the 9th Circuit rejected EPAs time line, instead ordering EPA by October 31, 2015, to either deny the petition, issue a proposed revocation, or issue a final revocation rule. EPA is ...

Pesticides are known to result in toxic insult. We aimed to evaluate Judo 40, the commercial formulation of chlorpyrifos on the neurological activities, fertility, and hormone levels of male rats. Male Wistar rats were treated orally with 1 mL of 20 or 50 mg/kg Judo 40. The doses were administered four times, twice a day. Sexual and exploratory behavior indices, fertility indices, serum androgen levels, blood acetylcholinesterase (BChE) levels, and neurological and muscular effects were evaluated. Serum testosterone and luteinizing hormone were significantly reduced in the rats receiving 50 mg/kg Judo 40. A reduction in viable implantation sites and live pups born were evident in the female rats mated with the male rats treated with the highest dose. Similarly, in the rats treated with the highest dose of Judo 40, a significant reduction in plasma BChE enzyme was observed. According to the results, prolonged Judo 40 exposure can cause impairment of the neurological alterations and sex hormones ...
A study of 265 New York City minority children has found that those born with higher amounts of the insecticide chlorpyrifos had lower IQ scores at age 7. Those most exposed (top 25%) scored an average 5.3 points lower on the working memory part of the IQ test (WISC-IV), and 2.7 points lower on the full IQ test, compared to those in the lowest quartile.. The children were born prior to the 2001 ban on indoor residential use of the common household pesticide in the US. The babies umbilical cord blood was used to measure exposure to the insecticide.. Previous research had found that, prior to the ban, chlorpyrifos was detected in all personal and indoor air samples in New York, and 70% of umbilical cord blood collected from babies. The amount of chlorpyrifos in babies blood was associated with neurodevelopmental problems at age three. The new findings indicate that these problems persist.. While exposure to the organophosphate has measurably declined, agricultural use is still permitted in the ...

Banned for indoor use since 2001, the effects of the common insecticide known as chlorpyrifos can still be found in the brains of young children now approaching puberty. A new study used magnetic imaging to reveal that those children exposed to chlorpyrifos in the womb had persistent changes in their brains throughout childhood.. The brains of 20 children exposed to higher levels of chlorpyrifos in their mothers blood (as measured by serum from the umbilical cord) looked different compared to those exposed to lower levels of the chemical, says epidemiologist Virginia Rauh of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, who led the research published online by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on April 30. During brain development some type of disturbance took place.. The 6 young boys and 14 little girls, whose mothers were exposed to chlorpyrifos when it was commonly used indoors in bug sprays prior to the ban, ranged in age from seven to nearly 10. All came ...

The following post explores each component of this now viral claim:. Chlorpyrifos Was Invented by the Nazis as a Nerve Agent. Mostly false. Chlorpyrifos is a specific chemical that belongs to a broader class of chemicals called organophosphates. While the Nazis were at the forefront of developing this broader class as both weapons and insecticides, they can not be credited with inventing chlorpyrifos specifically.. In the 1930s, a German researcher named Gerhard Schrader at German chemical producer IG Farben (infamous for producing the gas most commonly employed at Nazi death camps) discovered that organophosphates interact with cholinesterase, an enzyme that aids in the production of an important neurotransmitter in animals.. Originally this effect was explored as a way to produce an insecticide, but one of Schraders formulations, named Preparation 9/91, ended up being extremely toxic to humans. Schrader himself required hospitalization as a result of his own interaction with it. This ...
Organophosphorus pesticides are some of the most widely used insecticides in the US, and spray drift may result in human exposures. We investigate sampling methodologies using the polyurethane foam passive air sampling device to measure cumulative monthly airborne concentrations of OP pesticides chlorpyrifos, azinphos-methyl, and oxygen analogs. Passive sampling rates (m3 d-1) were determined usin

Dennis writes: Under President Barack Obama, the EPA proposed in 2015 to revoke all uses of chlorpyrifos on food - a move taken in response to a petition filed by the Natural Resources Defense Council and Pesticide Action Network North America. A federal judge had given the EPA until Friday to decide whether to finalize its ban of the chemical.
A proposed law would ban a pesticide linked to developmental disorders, after the EPA refused to ban it despite concerns from its own researchers.
Today, Matt and Erin talk about the recent EPA proposal to revoke all tolerances to chlorpyrifos. This insecticide is an option in corn and soybean in Iowa and restricting or removing the use could have potential implications for field crop pest management. Matt shares a paper that shows a decrease of chlorpyrifos in corn but relatively steady use in soybean (doi:10.1088/1748-9326/10/9/094016). He isnt sure if revoking the use would have an immediate impact, but Erin offers a Coke analogy to say otherwise.

If you have black aphid susceptible cultivars like Schley, Sumner, Oconee, or Gloria Grande be on the lookout for black aphids. Even if you have recently sprayed, check in behind them again after a few days. We have seen significant flare ups of this pest over the last two weeks. At this point in the season it would not be a bad option to go with Chlorpyrifos + Imidacloprid as a treatment, particularly if you have had flare ups behind some of the other aphicide materials. Chlorpyrifos will also get shuckworm as well. If you have a history of weevils in your orchard, Bifentrhin would be a suitable choice for all of these pests at this point in the season. However, continue to check for mites behind these sprays.. The SE Georgia Pecan Field Day was held in Appling County earlier this week and drew a large crowd. Hopefully the information we provided was informative. Thanks to Appling County Agent, Shane Curry for putting on a good program for the growers in the SE Georgia area. This was the first ...

In vivo effects of two sublethal doses of chlorpyrifos and carbaryl were studied in Procambarus clarkii after 2 and 7 days of exposure, and after pesticide removal. Chlorpyrifos inhibited carboxylesterase activity in a concentration-dependent manner, but acetylcholinesterase was less sensitive. Compared with chlorpyrifos, carbaryl had a less marked effect on esterase activity. The effects of selected pesticides on biotransformation or oxidative stress biomarkers were contradictory. Chlorpyrifos lowered ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD), catalase and oxidized glutathione (GSSG) levels but raised glutathione-S-transferase activity, while carbaryl raised EROD, catalase and glutathione-S-transferase, but lowered glutathione peroxidase and reduced glutathione (GSH) levels. The effects on protein expression patterns depending on pesticide type and the tissue used for analysis were studied in parallel by 2-DE. In gill and nervous tissue about 2000 spots (pI 4-7) were resolved, with quite different ...

The acute toxicity of carbosulfan and chlorpyrifos in formulated pesticides to glochidia (larvae) of the freshwater mussel (Hyriopsis bialata Simpson, 1900) was evaluated under static conditions in moderately hard dechlorinated tap water. Measured pesticide concentrations were 26 to 34% lower than nominal concentrations; therefore, all results are expressed in terms of measured active ingredient. Carbosulfan was relatively non-toxic to the mussel larvae with median effective concentrations (EC50) of carbosulfan at 24 and 48 h greater than 0.10 mg/L. The EC50s of chlorpyrifos at 24 and 48 h were 0.083 and 0.078 mg/L, respectively (measured concentrations). The 48-h EC50 of a combined exposure to a mixture of chlorpyrifos and carbosulfan at a constant ratio of 2.9:1 was 0.0142:0.049 mg CP:CB/L. In a separate experiment, the effect of water hardness on carbosulfan, chlorpyrifos, or a combined exposure was assessed using glochidia exposed to either soft, moderately hard, or hard reconstituted water. ...

Wheat farmers facing orange blossom midge attacks are being offered a new fully approved and cheaper control alternative to organophosphorus insecticide chlorpyrifos.
Since my lab currently conducts pesticide risk assessments for bees, I sometimes hear feedback along the lines of, Scott, it seems like youre always focusing on the problems instead of finding solutions. While Im certainly sympathetic to this criticism, I would argue we first need to understand if (or when) theres a problem before coming up with a solution.. But sometimes we already know theres a problem and can focus on solutions. Such is the case for bee exposures to some organophosphate insecticides. Bees arent exposed to harmful levels of organophosphate insecticides all the time, but they are sometimes, especially during crop pollination. Indeed, a recent worldwide meta-analysis of in-hive pesticide residue studies found that, under current use patterns, five insecticides pose substantial risk to bees: chlorpyrifos, clothianidin, imidacloprid, phosmet, and thiamethoxam (Sanchez-Bayo & Goka 2014). Two of these insecticides (chlorpyrifos and phosmet) are organophosphates.. So, what if ...

Several of the pesticides authorized this year will be entirely new to Brazil. Some have already been classified by Brazils National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) as extremely toxic. These include: mancozeb, a broad-spectrum fungicide used in agriculture and horticulture; the fungicide fluazinam; and the insecticide chlorpyrifos. In 2018 the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) banned the use of mancozeb in Canada, except for foliar use on potatoes, due to unacceptable risks to human health. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of chlorpyrifos in 2018 after its use had been associated with development disabilities in children.. One particularly controversial newly approved chemical is sulfoxaflor. This pesticide was one of several believed to have caused an outbreak in Brazil of colony collapse disorder - the catastrophic sudden disappearance of worker bees from a bee colony, leading to the death of hives. According to a survey carried out by Agência ...
Phenyl phosphonothioic acid-O-ethyl-O-[4-nitrophenyl] ester (EPN) is one of the 10 most frequently used organophosphorus insecticides and causes delayed neurotoxicity in adult chickens and mallards. Small amounts of organophosphorus insecticides placed on birds eggs are embryotoxic and teratogenic. For this reason, the effects of topical egg application on EPN were examined on mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) embryo development. Mallard eggs were treated topically at 72 hr of incubation with 25 microliter of a nontoxic oil vehicle or with EPN in the vehicle at concentrations of approximately 12, 36, or 108 micrograms/g egg, equivalent to one, three, and nine times the agricultural level of application used to spray crops. Treatment with EPN resulted in 22 to 44% mortality over this dose range by 18 days of development compared with 4 and 5% for untreated and vehicle-treated controls. EPN impaired embryonic growth and was highly teratogenic: 37-42% of the surviving embryos at 18 days...
Organophosphate pesticides are known to induce oxidative stress and cause oxidative tissue damage, as has been reported in studies concerning acute and chronic intoxication with these compounds.Our objective was to investigate the activities of brain antioxidant enzymes and malonyldialdehyde, as well as the level of carbonyl groups, in rats sub-chronically intoxicated with chlorpyrifos at doses of 0.2, 2 and 5 mg per kg of body weight per day. It was found that chlorpyrifos induces change in brain antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidise, but to a different degree in comparison to proper control values; however, the elevated antioxidant enzymes activities failed to check lipid and protein peroxidation in the brains of rats. Thus, in sub-chronic intoxication with chlorpyrifos, as evidenced by increased level of malonyldialdehyde and carbonyl groups, oxidative stress is induced.Measurements of protein carbonyl groups appeared to give more consistent ...
The unborn children of pregnant women, babies and children are at heightened risk since many common pesticides are more harmful at crucial windows of development. A major 2014 study found that women who were exposed to pyrethroid pesticides (the pesticide sprayed in New York City this summer was sumithrin, a pyrethroid) both before conception and in the third trimester of pregnancy had increased odds of their child displaying autistic spectrum disorders and developmental delay. It also found that pregnant women in their second and third trimesters exposed to organophosphate pesticides-like chlorpyrifos, which is often used in mosquito sprayings-had an increased risk of having a baby with autistic spectrum disorder.. In fact, the EPA has banned chlorpyrifos from residential use and is considering banning it in agricultural contexts as well. In Gores laboratory model, she found that exposure to chlorpyrifos resulted in impaired reproductive function and infertility. Its also a known neurotoxin ...
Two environmental groups filed suit against U.S. EPA yesterday in an attempt to force the agency into action on their 2007 petition seeking a ban on the insecticide chlorpyrifos. The court challenge by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) alleges that EPA has unreasonably delayed work on the anti-chlorpyrifos petition, which was opened for public comment soon after its filing but never subject to a final ruling. This failure to act is particularly unreasonable as chlorpyrifos continued agricultural use exposes farmworkers, bystanders, consumers, and children to harm from this highly toxic pesticide, NRDC and PANNA state in the court filing.. readMORE» New York Times. ...

By Lisa M. Campbell, Timothy D. Backstrom, and Lisa R. Burchi. On August 12, 2016, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order denying the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) request for an additional six months to decide whether to ban agricultural uses of chlorpyrifos. The court opted instead to afford EPA a three month extension, stating that this is the final extension, and the court will not grant any further extensions. EPA sought the six month extension on June 29, 2016, to allow time for EPA to complete two scientific analyses that may bear on EPAs conclusions in the final rule, and to request further public comment before taking final action on a prior proposal to revoke all chlorpyrifos tolerances. The two analyses that EPA wanted to complete are: (1) a refined drinking water assessment that may allow EPA to develop more tailored risk mitigation for some regions of the country, and (2) an evaluation of the epidemiological data for ...
In our previous research, the fitness cost of resistance of the diamondback moth (DBM), Plutella xylostella found in insecticide-resistant DBM (Rc-DBM) under heat stress was based on heavier damage to wing veins when compared to insecticide-susceptible DBM (Sm-DBM). To investigate the molecular mechanism of the damage to the veins between Rc- and Sm-DBM, the full-length sequences of two related genes involved in the development of wing veins, fringe (Px-fng) and engrailed (Px-en) of DBM were cloned, and the mRNA expressions of both Px-fng and Px-en were studied. The Px-fng and Px-en cDNA contained 1038 bp and 1152 bp of open reading frames (ORFs), respectively, which encoded a putative protein comprising 345 and 383 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 39.59 kDa and 42.69 kDa. Significantly down regulated expressions of Px-fng and Px-en under heat stress were found in pupae and adults of Rc-DBM compared to Sm-DBM, and a result of higher damage to wing veins in Rc-DBM under heat stress.
