  • Aims: Several chelating agents are presently used among environmental physicians to diagnose and treat a chronic metal overexposure. We evaluated and compared the binding capacity of the most common chelating agents DMPS (2, 3-dimercapto-1propanesulfonic acid), DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid), also called Succimer) and EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) for the potentially toxic metals Antimony (Sb), Arsenic (As), Cadmium (Cd), Lead (Pb) and Mercury (Hg). Secondly, we evaluated how the… CONTINUE READING
