Trientine Hydrochloride: A Copper Chelator
Created 6 months ago by marykudro

Trientine HCL is the hydrochloride salt form of a metal chelating agent with potential anti-angiogenic activity. Trientine chelates excess copper ions in the body; the excess copper is removed from the body through the kidneys. The trientine cost usually may vary on behalf of the wholesaler/pharmacy and of course the type of brand you choose to buy. Trientine hydrochloride is administered orally, but is not well absorbed and should not be administered with food. Swallow the trientine capsules whole through the water. Do not open/chew the capsules. The dosage depends on the medical condition and also the response to treatment.
