The rate of percutaneous absorption of paraoxon (E 600, or diethyl 4-nitrophenyl phosphate) has been determined by dose-response comparison following this mode of administration and intravenous infusion in the cat. The rate of inhibition of plasma cholinesterase activity was chosen as the parameter. Under the conditions of the study, the rate of percutaneous absorption was found to be constant in a given skin. By extrapolation from the activity curves, it was possible to determine the time required for paraoxon to diffuse from the topical deposit to the blood stream. This latency period was found to be approximately 12 minutes.
