Does anyone see any problems with the following treatment for
1. Uranium sequestration: 3,4,3-LIHOPO or better chelator;
2. Antioxidant stimulation: CMX-1154 (www.ceremedix.com)
and/or Protandim (www.protandim.com); and
3. Oxidation product sequestration enzymes: Eukarion
Since we in the U.S. give our troops $500 Provigil prescriptions
on demand (thank goodness we've cut out the dextroamphetamines),
then we ought to at least have some decent treatments for the
uranium exposure victims.
Several species of mammals and some human volunteers would need
to try the interaction profile first, under D.V.M. and M.D.
supervision and peer review.
Prongs 2 and 3 have wide "dual-use" application to the population
at large. I suspect figuring out how to up-regulate naturally
occurring scavenger compounds may be better than just adding more
scavenger enzymes in prong 3; just as adding vitamin A, C, or E,
or other antioxidant megadoses doesn't help nearly as much as
up-regulating natural antioxidant production, although it does
help a little, but not enough to justify the side effects in the
case of vitamin A.
Until we get nanobots with tiny directional ionophore sensors
(don't hold your breath -- or do, if you are around dangerous
quantities of uranyl oxide gas) I don't see how we could do better.
