Abstract : Erythrocyte and plasma cholinesterase were measured frequently in two groups of subjects: in one group (22 subjects) biweekly for a year and in another group (9 subjects) daily for three weeks. For erythrocyte cholinesterase, the average range of activity in men over a year was 8% and over three weeks was 5%. The average ranges of plasma enzyme activity were 25% and 12%. The average ranges of erythrocyte and plasma cholinesterase in women over a year were 12% and 24%. The variation of erythrocyte cholinesterase is less than the variation in hematocrit, hemoglobin, and red blood cell number.
