    Mark Hyman, MD: Is There a Cure for Autoimmune Disease?

  • In addition to a diagnostic blood level concentration determined prior to therapy initiation, patients should be monitored for rebound in blood lead concentrations after therapy, because, as with all chelating agents, elevated blood lead concentrations and associated symptoms may return rapidly after discontinuation of succimer due to redistribution of lead from bone stores to soft tissues.

    Succimer

  • Succimer is a heavy metal chelating agent that, in vitro, forms stable water soluble complexes with lead4 and consequently increases the urinary excretion of lead. 2-9 Succimer has also been found to chelate other toxic heavy metals such as arsenic10 and mercury. 11

    Succimer

  • The selectivity, efficacy and safety characteristics of succimer offer many advantages over currently available agents. 1 As an oral agent, it offers ease of administration and offers physicians the option of treating children as outpatients. 2,3 The specificity of succimer substantially reduces the risk of essential mineral depletion associated with conventional chelating agents.

    Succimer
