Abstract
Three oximes currently being evaluated for adoption as replacement nerve agent therapies by various countries were compared for therapeutic efficacy against soman and tabun. These compounds, together with PAM-CI and toxogonin, were also compared against GF poisoning. The order of effectiveness against soman was HI-6 > HLoe-7 > pyrimidoxime. HLoe-7 was very effective against tabun poisoning while HI-6 and pyrimidoxime were of moderate value. Against GF, HI-6 and HLoe-7 were highly effective, toxogonin was moderately effective, and PAM-CI and pyrimidoxime were the least effective.
