  • nerve
  • Because of its essential function, chemicals that interfere with the action of cholinesterase are potent neurotoxins, causing excessive salivation and eye-watering in low doses, followed by muscle spasms and ultimately death (examples are some snake venoms, and the nerve gases sarin and VX). (wikipedia.org)
  • True cholinesterase is present at nerve endings and in erythrocytes (red blood cells) but is not present in plasma. (medicregister.com)
  • BCHE
  • In 2008, an experimental new drug was discovered for the potential treatment of cocaine abuse and overdose based on the pseudocholinesterase structure (it was a human BChE mutant with improved catalytic efficiency). (wikipedia.org)
  • neuromuscular
  • The latter means that, should attempts at endotracheal intubation fail and the person cannot be ventilated, there is a prospect for neuromuscular recovery and the onset of spontaneous breathing before low blood oxygen levels occurs. (wikipedia.org)
  • degrade
  • Saliva and cariogenic bacteria showed esteraselike activities (ie, cholesterol esterase [CE]-like and/or pseudocholinesterase [PCE]-like) that degrade methacrylate-based resin materials and/or the restoration-tooth interface, increasing microbial interfacial proliferation. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • activity
  • Cholinesterase (ChE) specific activity is the ratio of ChE activity to ChE mass and, as a biomarker of exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors, has a potential advantage over simple ChE activity. (mdpi.com)
  • To examine the association of several potential correlates (serum arylesterase/paraoxonase activity, serum albumin, sex, age, month of blood collection, and smoking) with plasma ChE specific activity. (mdpi.com)
  • Serum albumin was positively associated with ChE specific activity. (mdpi.com)
  • Most studies on ChE and exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors have been conducted using ChE activity alone and thus our knowledge of the factors (e.g., sex, age, and season) that may influence ChE specific activity and ChE mass is limited. (mdpi.com)
  • concentration
  • In most cases, data about overdoses are not reliable, and plasma levels of acetaminophen concentration are routinely measured and compared with standard nomograms to decide whether a patient will need antidotal therapy with N-acetylcysteine. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • test
  • A digoxin test system is a device intended to measure digoxin, a cardiovascular drug, in serum and plasma. (medicregister.com)
  • Independent variableempowerment of women was calculated by giving score to education, occupation and autonomy at micro level.Dependent variables (fertility and use of contraception) were assessed for significance by applying chi square test.Results: 41.9% high empowered women were in the opinion that birth of a male child did not provide security (p (oalib.com)
