Slow-acting poison/drug related to research

Period: Modern Day
Place: US
Places looked: Wikipedia, PubMed, DrugDigest

What I'm looking for:
I need a poison or drug that can be used to slowly kill someone over time - a couple of weeks to a month tops. Something that in low doses isn't going to do much/any damage, but would likely show up in blood tests (murderer is drugging self and others to throw off police). Also something that is either linked to some sort of chemical/biological/medical research and/or normally found in a lab.

Props if it is used in more than one field of research. More background & original ideaCollapse )

Thanks everyone!
