Soman and tabun, cannot be treated sufficiently with atropine and oximes. htm). This concept aims to carbamylate synaptic AChE partially, thus preventing Treatment of Nerve Agent Poisoning 11 phosphylation by a nerve agent. After clearance of unbound nerve agent from the body, decarbamylation of AChE is expected to result in a small fraction of active AChE in the synaptic cleft, resulting in improved survival. It was estimated that carbamylation of 20–40% of AChE should be sufficient for a relevant protective effect.

22 Meanwhile, it was shown experimentally that after pyridostigmine prophylaxis, soman may not lead to a complete inhibition of AChE. It appears that a very small portion of AChE remains active under such conditions,37 which might be decisive for survival. It is notable that the pretreatment approach only has relevance for military personnel and a few selected first responders. 6 D  ifferences Between Nerve Agent and OP Compound Pesticide Poisoning The acute toxicity of nerve agents and OP pesticides is induced by inhibition of AChE.

Generally, obidoxime, HI-6 and pralidoxime appear to be good reactivators for VX, while pralidoxime appears less efficient in VR poisoning. Slow and progressive inhibition of AChE was shown in percutaneous VX poisoning, which opens a therapeutic window for oxime administration prior to the onset of signs of poisoning. 99 These data emphasize the need to start oxime therapy as early as possible and to continue oxime administration, either by repetitive bolus injections or by continuous infusion, for as long as free agent is circulating in the body.
