Occupational and Genetic Risk Factors for Inhibition of
Cholinesterase in Agricultural Workers
The overall goal of this research project is to reduce overexposure to cholinesterase (ChE)-inhibiting pesticides among agricultural pesticide handlers. This will be achieved by identifying risk factors associated with inhibited ChE levels among participants in the Washington State ChE monitoring program and incorporating this information into preventive practice and training of workers at risk.
