Someone Please Make Radiation Drugs, U.S. FDA Asks
Fri September 12, 2003 01:52 PM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday it was trying to entice someone, somewhere, into making drugs to treat people for internal radiation poisoning.
It said it had identified two compounds that could be made into safe drugs and called on companies to come up with plans for making them.

The compounds, pentetate calcium trisodium (Ca-DTPA) and pentetate zinctrisodium (Zn-DTPA), can be safe and effective for the treatment of internal contamination with plutonium, americium, or curium, the FDA said.
