The effect of Medetopect, a food additive, on the metabolic kinetics of transuranics (239Pu and 241Am) has been studied experimentally in white mongrel rats following chronic intake by ingestion. The Medetopect application has been shown to be advantageous for reduction of the 239Pu and 241Am absorption from and content of the gastrointestinal tract of the animals. Note: Medetopect is produced by Sanofi Pharma and contains low-esterified apple pectins, redoxin (vitamin C) and calcium phosphate.
