Drug Mode of Action ::
Pralidoxime reactivates cholinesterase outside the CNS which has been inactivated by phosphorylation due to organophosphate pesticide exposure-resulting. This leads to the destruction of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction thus relieving muscle paralysis. It also removes the phosphyl group from the active site of inactivated enzyme which is dependent on the nature of the phosphyl group.
