Abstract

Delayed neuropathic (DN) agents are defined here as organophosphorus (OP) compounds that produce OP compound-induced delayed neurotoxicity (OPIDN). This syndrome involves distal sensorimotor degeneration of long, large-diameter axons in peripheral nerves and spinal cord with associated sensory deficits and paralysis typically occurring within 1-4 weeks after exposure. Mechanistic studies indicate that inhibition and aging of more than 70% of neuropathy target esterase (NTE) in neural tissue correlates with development of OPIDN and that acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is not involved. The neuropathic potential of an OP compound can be assessed by its relative inhibitory potency (RIP) against AChE versus NTE. By the convention used in this chapter, a high RIP value indicates that the compound will produce cholinergic toxicity rather than OPIDN. Lymphocyte and platelet NTE can be used as biomarkers of exposure to DN compounds, and human recombinant NTE esterase domain (NEST) has been incorporated into a biosensor for these agents.
