As the doctor should recall, the intestines do NOT absorb all
substances uniformly along their length.
It is not known where in the intestines DMSA is absorbed. Many things
are absorbed only in the early portion, so that time release
formulations are ineffective for them.
While it is unclear if time release DMSA works or not, it is clear
that time release ALA does not.
