  • OBJECTIVES To compare the response to dimercaptopropanol (BAL) and calcium disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) versus orally administered meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) and EDTA in children with lead poisoning. METHODS Retrospective review of medical records of children admitted to MetroHealth Medical Center with a whole blood lead (BPb) concentration of 2.17 mumol/L (45 micrograms/dl) or more (or less than 2.17 mumol/L and not a candidate for outpatient oral chelation… CONTINUE READING
