Certain pesticides can be harmful, and there is a need for effective antidotes that can reverse accidental over-exposure by farm workers. UC San Diego researchers have recently developed a therapeutic modality that is a combination of compositions that may be effective as an antidote.
UC San Diego researchers have discovered that certain combinations of chemicals may be useful in combatting accidental exposure to farming-related pesticides. The early biological data suggest promising new approaches, and research is ongoing. A patent application has been filed.
