    Lead Poisoning???

    Advertisements



    okay... so for lead poisoning, there's many chelating agents...

    1. Succimer
    2. CaNa2 EDTA
    3. Dimercaprol
    4. Penicillamine

    - which one is the most important or which do we use?
    - are there specific cases where we use one over the other?
