The reversible AChE-inhibitors pyridostigmine, metoclopramide, tiapride, ranitidine, physostigmine, tacrine, amiloride, methylene blue, 7-methoxytacrine and K-27 were tested as prophylactic agents before exposure to the irreversible AChE-inhibitor paraoxon. Their efficacy in reducing organophosphorus compound-induced mortality was assessed by Cox survival analysis. Best in vivo protection from paraoxon-induced mortality was achieved by physostigmine or the oxime K-27, the most efficacious pretreatment agent not passing the blood brain barrier.
