Ref :-   Book : Goodman    Page : 1872   Edition : 12,


  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  The use of reductants such as ascorbate, glutathione, or N-acetylcysteine to reduce CrVI to CrIII after exposure but before absorption to limit bioavailability . These compounds and EDTA also increase urinary excretion of chromium after high-dose exposure. ,

►  Contraindication : lung cancer, Nasal cancer,
Ref :-   Book : Goodman    Page : 1872   Edition : 12,
  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Chromium can be oxidized to multiple valence states, with trivalent (CrIII) and hexavalent chromium (CrVI) being the two forms of biological importance. Chromium exists almost exclusively as the trivalent form in nature, and CrIII is an essential metal involved in the regulation of glucose metabolism. CrVI is thought to be responsible for the toxic effects of chromium exposure. ,
