DMSA (meso-2,-3-dimercaptosuccinic acid) is a sulfhydryl-containing, water-soluble, non-toxic, orally administered metal chelator that has been in use as an antidote to heavy metal toxicity since the 1950s.
Studies in 2009 were carried out in autistic children and it was concluded that it is "reasonably safe" and effective.
