edetate

 [ed´ĕtāt]
USAN contraction for ethylenediaminetetraacetate, a salt of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA); the salts include edetate disodium calcium, used in the diagnosis and treatment of lead poisoning, and edetate disodium, used in the treatment hypercalcemia because of its affinity for calcium.

ed·e·tate

(ed'ĕ-tāt),
USAN-approved contraction for ethylenediaminetetraacetate, the anion of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid; various edetates are used as chelating agents to carry cations in (for example, ferric sodium edetate as an iron ion carrier) or out (for example, sodium edetate for calcium or heavy metal ion removal).
