University, examined the interaction of levothyroxine with two relatively new drugs--colesevelam (Welchol), the newest bile acid sequestrant approved for hyperlipidemia and diabetes; and lanthanum carbonate (Fosrenol), a new phosphate binder used in end-stage renal disease.
Overview [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] Lanthanum is a rare-earth trace metal that naturally occurs in monazite sand and coal (Drueke, 2007).
CPFilms' parent company, Solutia, has patents on IR-absorbing layers of lanthanum hexaboride, antimony-tin oxide, and indium-tin oxide.
Mineral products covered by these unlimited quotas, which can be filled by any non-EU exporter include certain rare-earth concentrates; alloys of rare-earths and cerium (containing 47% or more cerium); alloys of rare-earths and lanthanum (containing 43% or more lanthanum; zirconium (IV) basic carbonate); calcined bauxite (refractory grade); quartz plate (or glass plate) covered with chromium film and a photosensitive or electro-sensitive resin; calcium sodium phosphate for animal feed additives; povidone (INN)-iodine; antimony ingots; lithium hypochlorite; lithium tantalate wafers; water suspended colloidal graphite; manganese (II,III) oxide containing 70% plus of manganese; and many more.
