23 nickel-sensitive patients with hand eczema were treated with Trientine 300 mg daily and a placebo in a double-blind, crossover trial. No significant improvement occurred in the hand eczema. A surprising finding was that there was no detectable increase in urinary nickel excretion, in contrast to animal studies.
