    Abstract

    The alterations in serum pseudo-cholinesterase, transaminases, and aldolase observed in 12 agricultural workers exposed to the organo-phosphorus insecticide, malathion, over a period of six months are recorded. A comparison with a series of unselected controls and a series of manual workers is made. Evidence is produced that the majority of the agricultural workers have been suffering from minor effects of poisoning.
