Accidental internal contamination of humans by uranium can induce radiological or chemical toxicity, their relative importance beeing dependant on the isotopic composition. The current approach for reducing the risk of biological effects is to administer chelating agents that will enhance the excretion of uranium. The results obtained with several phosporus bearing compounds including phosphonic acids, diphosphonates and phosphoalkylphosphates and with 3,4,3-LIHOPO, an effective agent for other actinides, are presented here. The development of new approaches designed to optimise the decorporation of uranium carried out under the Europen Union 4th Framework Program is described.
