Effect of Chelation on Phosphorus Metabolism in Experimental Atherosclerosis
MgNa2EDTA is shown to have an ameliorating effect of fat-induced atherosclerosis in rabbits. The compound was shown to decrease not only the general extent of atheromatosis, but to influence phosphate metabolism in induced atherosclerosis. Some credence is lent to a previously outlined hypothesis suggesting that the parathyroids mediate this effect.
