[Enterosorption by nonstarch polysaccharides as a method of treatment of children with mercury poisoning].

[Article in Russian]


Possibility of apple pectin "Classic AU-701" (E-440) usage as the means of detoxication was evaluated in 146 children of 7-14 years old with the increased content of mercury in urine. Under the influence of enterosorption the mercury withdrawal with urine increased, the period of mercury intoxication was shortened by 6 weeks, the hemogram and vegetative regulation indices of the affected children improved. The authors consider pectin to be effective in mercury intoxication treatment. It may be also used to increase intoxication resistance under exposure to chemicals.
