Dimercaptosuccinic acid, or DMSA, is the chemical compound with the formula HO2CCH(SH)CH(SH)CO2H. Excretion is the process of eliminating waste products of Metabolism and other non-useful materials The pregnancy category of a pharmaceutical agent is an assessment of the risk of fetal injury due to the pharmaceutical if it is used as directed by the mother during The regulation of therapeutic goods, that is drugs and therapeutic devices, varies by jurisdiction In Pharmacology and Toxicology, a route A chemical compound is a substance consisting of two or more different elements chemically bonded together in a fixed proportion by Mass. A chemical formula is a way of expressing information about the Atoms that constitute a particular Chemical compound, and how the relationship between those atoms changes This colourless solid contains two carboxylic acid and two thiol groups, the latter being responsible for the mildly unpleasant odour of this dicarboxylic acid. Carboxylic acids are Organic acids characterized by the presence of a Carboxyl group, which has the formula -C(=OOH usually written -COOH or -CO2H In Organic chemistry, a thiol is a compound that contains the functional group composed of a Sulfur atom and a Hydrogen atom (-SH Dicarboxylic acids are Organic compounds that are substituted with two Carboxylic acid Functional groups In molecular formulae for dicarboxylic acids these It occurs in two diastereomeric forms, meso and the chiral dl forms. The meso isomer is used as a chelating agent. Chelation is the binding or complexation of a bi- or multidentate Ligand.
DMSA may be prepared by reacting maleic or fumaric acid with sodium thiosulfate followed by hydrolysis. Maleic acid or ( Z)-butenedioic acid or cis -butenedioic acid or malenic acid or maleinic acid or toxilic Fumaric acid is the Chemical compound with the formula HO2CCH=CHCO2H Sodium thiosulfate ( Na 2 S 2 O 3 is a colorless Crystalline compound that is more familiar as the Pentahydrate 
Meso 2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid is used to sequester heavy metals such as mercury and lead for excretion. Mercury (ˈmɜrkjʊri also called quicksilver or hydrargyrum, is a Chemical element with the symbol Hg ( Latinized hydrargyrum Characteristics Lead has a dull luster and is a dense, Ductile, very soft highly DMSA can cross the blood-brain barrier of mice, but not that of humans, limiting its use to extracting heavy metals parts of the body other than the central nervous system. The blood-brain barrier (BBB is a metabolic or cellular structure in the Central nervous system (CNS that restricts the passage of various chemical substances and microscopic 
DMSA is also called succimer and is sold under the brand name Chemet. The dimethyl ester is also known. Esters are a class of Chemical compounds and Functional groups Esters consist of an inorganic or organic Acid in which at least
