Excerpt

Dimercaprol, or British anti-Lewisite (BAL), is a parenterally administered heavy metal chelating agent that is used to treat arsenic, gold, copper and mercury poisoning. Dimercaprol has not been associated with serum enzyme elevations during therapy or with cases of clinically apparent liver injury with jaundice, but its general use has been quite limited.
