A description of the experience

J Pediatr. 2013 Aug;163(2):598-600. doi: 10.1016/j.jpeds.2013.03.009. Epub 2013 Apr 16.  The impact of succimer chelation on blood cadmium in children with background exposures: a randomized trial.  Cao Y1, Chen A, Bottai M, Caldwell KL, Rogan WJ.  1Unit of Biostatistics, Division of Epidemiology, Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

Succimer lowers blood lead concentrations in children, and the structure of succimer chelates of lead and cadmium are similar.

Using blood samples from a randomized trial of succimer for lead poisoning, however, we found that succimer did not lower blood cadmium in children with background exposure.
