Abstract

The results obtained in this study, and in an earlier study, indicate that it is unlikely that citric acid derivatives will be of any value in reducing internal plutonium contamination. Improvements in therapeutic countermeasures against plutonium contamination will be dependent upon the development of lipophilic derivatives of diethylene triaminepentaacetic acid, or the development of lipophilic tetrameric catechoyl amides (Du80).
