Phase I study of 90Y-labeled B72.3 intraperitoneal administration in patients with ovarian cancer: effect of dose and EDTA coadministration on pharmacokinetics and toxicity. (1/159)

The tumor-associated glycoprotein 72 (TAG-72) antigen is present on a high percentage of tumor types including ovarian carcinomas. Antibody B72.3 is a murine monoclonal recognizing the surface domain of the TAG-72 antigen and has been widely used in human clinical trials. After our initial encouraging studies (M. G. Rosenblum et al., J. Natl. Cancer Inst., 83: 1629-1636, 1991) of tissue disposition, metabolism, and pharmacokinetics in 9 patients with ovarian cancer, we designed an escalating dose, multi-arm Phase I study of 90Y-labeled B72.3 i.p. administration. In the first arm of the study, patients (3 pts/dose level) received an i.p. infusion of either 2 or 10 mg of B72.3 labeled with either 1, 10, 15, or 25 mCi of 90Y. Pharmacokinetic studies demonstrated that concentrations of 90Y-labeled B72.3 persist in peritoneal fluid with half-lives >24 h after i.p. administration. In addition, 90Y-labeled B72.3 was absorbed rapidly into the plasma with peak levels achieved within 48 h, and levels declined slowly thereafter. Cumulative urinary excretion of the 90Y label was 10-20% of the administered dose which suggests significant whole-body retention of the radiolabel. Biopsy specimens of bone and marrow obtained at 72 h after administration demonstrated significant content of the label in bone (0.015% of the dose/g) with relatively little in marrow (0.005% of the dose/g). The maximal tolerated dose was determined to be 10 mCi because of hematological toxicity and platelet suppression. This typically occurred on the 29th day after administration and was thought to be a consequence of the irradiation of the marrow from the bony deposition of the radiolabel. In an effort to suppress the bone uptake of 90Y, patients were treated with a continuous i.v. infusion of EDTA (25 mg/kg/12 h x 6) infused immediately before i.p. administration of the radiolabeled antibody. Patients (3 pts/dose level) were treated with doses of 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, or 45 mCi of 90Y-labeled B72.3 for a total of 38 patients. EDTA administration resulted in significant myeloprotection, which allowed escalation to the maximal tolerated dose of 40 mCi. Dose-limiting toxicity was thrombocytopenia and neutropenia. Studies of plasma and peritoneal fluid pharmacokinetics demonstrate no changes compared with patients without EDTA pretreatment. Cumulative urinary excretion of the radiolabel was not increased in patients pretreated with EDTA compared with the untreated group. However, analysis of biopsy specimens of bone and marrow demonstrated that bone and marrow content of the 90Y label was 15-fold lower (<0.001% injected dose/g) than a companion group without EDTA. Four responses were noted in patients who received 15-30 mCi of 90Y-labeled B72.3 with response durations of 1-12 months. These results demonstrate the myeloprotective ability of EDTA, which allows safe i.p. administration of higher doses of 90Y-labeled B72.3 and, therefore, clearly warrant an expanded Phase II trial in patients with minimal residual disease after standard chemotherapy or for the palliation of refractory ascites.  (+info)

The potential of iron chelators of the pyridoxal isonicotinoyl hydrazone class as effective antiproliferative agents III: the effect of the ligands on molecular targets involved in proliferation. (2/159)

We have identified specific iron (Fe) chelators of the pyridoxal isonicotinoyl hydrazone (PIH) class that are far more effective ligands than desferrioxamine (DFO; Richardson et al, Blood 86:4295, 1995; Richardson and Milnes, Blood 89:3025, 1997). In the present study, we have compared the effect of DFO and one of the most active chelators (2-hydroxy-1-naphthylaldehyde isonicotinoyl hydrazone; 311) on molecular targets involved in proliferation. This was performed to further understand the mechanisms involved in the antitumor activity of Fe chelators. Ligand 311 was far more active than DFO at increasing Fe release from SK-N-MC neuroepithelioma and BE-2 neuroblastoma cells and preventing Fe uptake from transferrin. Like DFO, 311 increased the RNA-binding activity of the iron-regulatory proteins (IRPs). However, despite the far greater Fe chelation efficacy of 311 compared with DFO, a similar increase in IRP-RNA binding activity occurred after 2 to 4 hours of incubation with either chelator, and the binding activity was not inhibited by cycloheximide. These results suggest that, irrespective of the Fe chelation efficacy of a ligand, an increase IRP-RNA binding activity occurred via a time-dependent step that did not require protein synthesis. Further studies examined the effect of 311 and DFO on the expression of p53-transactivated genes that are crucial for cell cycle control and DNA repair, namely WAF1, GADD45, and mdm-2. Incubation of 3 different cell lines with DFO or 311 caused a pronounced concentration- and time-dependent increase in the expression of WAF1 and GADD45 mRNA, but not mdm-2 mRNA. In accordance with the distinct differences in Fe chelation efficacy and antiproliferative activity of DFO and 311, much higher concentrations of DFO (150 micromol/L) than 311 (2.5 to 5 micromol/L) were required to markedly increase GADD45 and WAF1 mRNA levels. The increase in GADD45 and WAF1 mRNA expression was seen only after 20 hours of incubation with the chelators and was reversible after removal of the ligands. In contrast to the chelators, the Fe(III) complexes of DFO and 311 had no effect on increasing GADD45 and WAF1 mRNA levels, suggesting that Fe chelation was required. Finally, the increase in GADD45 and WAF1 mRNAs appeared to occur by a p53-independent pathway in SK-N-MC and K562 cells, because these cell lines lack functional p53. Our results suggest that GADD45 and WAF1 may play important roles in the cell cycle arrest observed after exposure to these chelators.  (+info)

The influence of hemochromatosis mutations on iron overload of thalassemia major. (3/159)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Hemochromatosis is a genetic form of iron overload due to a defective HFE gene. Secondary iron overload is the main complication in transfusion-dependent thalassemia patients. In this work we have examined the prevalence of HFE mutations in thalassemia major and evaluated the degree of iron overload of patients with and without HFE mutations. DESIGN AND METHODS: HFE mutations were studied in 71 Italian thalassemic patients and in 189 normal controls, using PCR and restriction enzyme analysis. The degree of iron overload, assessed by serum ferritin and liver iron concentration (LIC), was compared in 17 patients with mutations in the HFE gene, and in 17 subjects with wild type HFE genotype. The two groups of patients had comparable globin gene mutations, were matched for age and were homogeneous for transfusion and chelation history. In all cases the iron balance calculated on the basis of transfusion regimen and iron excreted by chelation was available. RESULTS: The allele frequencies of C282Y and H63D were respectively 1.4% and 12.7% in patients and 1.1% and 11.4% in controls. No case of C282Y homozygosity was recorded among patients. No significant difference was found in terms of serum ferritin, LIC, or the age at chelation start between patients with and without HFE mutations. The single patient with H63D homozygosity was severely iron-loaded. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that the presence of a single mutation in the HFE gene does not influence the severity of iron loading in thalassemia patients following a regular transfusion and chelation program.  (+info)

Beta-thalassemia and pulmonary function. (4/159)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The survival of patients with beta-thalassemia major and intermedia has improved considerably. This has focused attention on the long-term sequelae of the disease itself and its treatment. The effect of hemosiderosis in major organs (heart, liver, etc) are well-recognized, but the pathophysiology of any lung damage is less clearly understood. We studied lung function changes in 32 patients with beta-thalassemia. DESIGN AND METHODS: Respiratory function tests, CO diffusion and arterial blood gas analysis were performed on 19 patients with beta-thalassemia major (9 F, 10 M) and 13 with beta-thalassemia intermedia (6 M, 7 F). All investigations were performed 24 hours before the patients received a blood transfusion or when they were in a stable state hematologic condition. Echocardiography was performed in all patients and the ejection fraction was employed as a measure of cardiac function. RESULTS: No patient had clinical signs of pulmonary dysfunction. Pulmonary function tests, however, showed a reduction of all main parameters (TLC, FVC, FEV1 and RV) in most patients with beta-thalassemia major, indicating a restrictive type of dysfunction. The pulmonary function of patients with beta-thalassemia intermedia seemed to be preserved. Arterial blood gas values were within the normal range, while in some subjects CO diffusion approached the lower limits of normality. There was no evidence that the observed abnormalities in pulmonary function were secondary to congestive heart failure. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Iron deposition due to repeated blood transfusions may play a central role in determining lung alterations although the majority of patients are well chelated, suggesting that more than one causal mechanisms could be involved.  (+info)

Second marrow transplants for graft failure in patients with thalassemia. (5/159)

Thirty-two thalassemic patients with a median age of 7.7 years (range 3.4-26 years) were given a second HLA-identical related marrow transplant (BMT2) for graft failure. Four patients were in class 1 and 28 patients in classes 2 and 3. Twenty-one patients had full thalassemia recurrence (first group) and 11 patients had aplastic marrows (second group) either with or without residual donor marrow cells after the first BMT (BMT1). As conditioning regimen for BMT2 all but five patients received BUCY or CY in association with total lymphoid irradiation (TLI) and/or anti-lymphocyte globulin (ALG), whereas nine patients received a new preparative regimen with hydroxyurea, azathioprine, fludarabine before conditioning with BUCY. Twenty one of 31 evaluable patients (67.7%) had initial, and 16 (51.6%) had sustained engraftment. Ten patients (32.3%) failed to engraft. Overall and event-free survival for the entire group of patients were 49% and 33%, respectively, with a median follow-up of 4 years (range 0.6-14 years) for surviving patients. Event-free survival was higher in the second group of patients compared with the first group (41% vs 29%). The second group of patients appeared to have less graft failure compared with the first group (30% vs 63%; P = 0.1). Transplant-related mortality was 28%. A linear stepwise regression analysis revealed that occurrence of graft failure within 60 days after BMT1 (P = 0.04) and absence of residual donor marrow cells (P = 0.009) predicted for graft failure following BMT2, whereas the occurrence of graft failure after 60 days (P = 0.03) had a positive influence on survival following BMT2. The incidence of grade >/=2 acute GVHD was low (14%). Eight of nine patients who received the new preparative regimen are alive, four without thalassemia. This study shows that BMT2 can be an effective therapy for a proportion of patients with poor survival expectancies despite conventional treatment.  (+info)

Juvenile hemochromatosis associated with B-thalassemia treated by phlebotomy and recombinant human erythropoietin. (6/159)

Juvenile hemochromatosis is a rare genetic disorder that causes iron overload. Clinical complications, which include liver cirrhosis, heart failure, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and diabetes, appear earlier and are more severe than in HFE-related hemochromatosis. This disorder, therefore, requires an aggressive therapeutic approach to achieve iron depletion. We report here the case of a young Italian female with juvenile hemochromatosis who was unable to tolerate frequent phlebotomy because of coexistent ss-thalassemia trait. The patient was successfully iron-depleted by combining phlebotomy with recombinant human erythropoietin.  (+info)

Lightening the lead load in children. (7/159)

More than 4 percent of preschool-aged children in the United States have blood lead levels above 10 microg per dL (0.50 pmol per L), and these levels have been associated with a decline in IQ. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advocates the use of a screening questionnaire to identify lead exposure or toxicity in all children. Primary prevention through the removal of lead from gasoline and paint has led to a reduction of blood lead levels in children. Secondary prevention through paint hazard remediation is effective in homes that have a high lead burden. Children with lead levels of 45 to 69 microg per dL (2.15 to 3.35 pmol per L) should receive chelation therapy using succimer (DMSA) or edetate calcium disodium (CaNa2EDTA). Use of both CaNa2EDTA and dimercaprol (BAL in oil) is indicated in children with blood lead levels higher than 70 microg per dL (3.40 micromol per L). Current treatment recommendations are based on the reduction of blood lead levels, which may not represent a significant overall reduction of the lead burden. Clinical trials of existing agents are needed to determine patient-oriented outcomes, such as the effect on IQ.  (+info)

Desferrioxamine-chelatable iron, a component of serum non-transferrin-bound iron, used for assessing chelation therapy. (8/159)

This study introduces a method for monitoring a component of serum non-transferrin-bound iron (NTBI), termed "desferrioxamine-chelatable iron" (DCI). It is measured with the probe fluorescein-desferrioxamine (Fl-DFO), whose fluorescence is stoichiometrically quenched by iron. DCI was found in the serum of most patients with thalassemia major (21 of 27 tested, range 1.5-8.6 microM), but only in a minority of patients with hereditary hemochromatosis (8 of 95 samples from 39 patients, range 0.4-1.1 microM) and in none of 48 controls. The method was applied to monitoring the appearance of iron in the serum of patients under chelation therapy. Short-term (2 hours) follow-up of patients immediately after oral administration of deferriprone (L1) showed substantial mobilization of DCI into the serum (up to 10 microM within 30-60 minutes). The transfer of DCI from L1 to Fl-DFO was observed in vitro with preformed L1-iron complexes, and occurred even at L1/iron ratios exceeding 3:1. Simultaneous administration of oral L1 and intravenous DFO to patients abrogated the L1-mediated rise in DCI, consistent with the shuttling of iron from L1 to DFO in vivo. A similar iron transfer from L1 to apo-transferrin was observed in vitro, lending experimental support to the notion that L1 can shuttle iron in vivo to other high-affinity ligands. These results provide a rationale for using chelator combinations, with the highly permeant L1 acting as an intracellular chelator-shuttle and the less permeant DFO serving as an extracellular iron sink. Potential applications of the DCI assay may be for studying chelator action and as an index of patient chelation status.  (+info)

Safety Concerns of Chelation Therapy are: Kidney Toxicity, Excessive Removal of Calcium, Inflammation of a vein, Insulin shock and hypoglycemia, and Congestive heart failure. It is generally believed that chelation therapy, administered by an experienced therapist at the proper doses is very safe. A very large study, which had been monitored by the friends and foes of chelation therapy, found that EDTA administered in the proper dosage was no more toxic than a placebo.
Chelation therapy has been used to treat atherosclerotic disease. We reported the results of an NIH-funded trial demonstrating a significant reduction of a combined cardiovascular endpoint in post-myocardial infarction (MI) patients treated with EDTA-based chelation compared with placebo. We report more detailed analyses of the effect of chelation compared to placebo on cardiovascular clinical outcomes among diabetic (DM) patients.. Methods: TACT, a multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2 X 2 factorial trial of EDTA chelation and high-dose vitamins, enrolled 1708 pts aged ≥ 50 years with an MI at least 6 weeks prior and creatinine ≤ 2.0. Protocol prespecified a comparison of chelation with placebo in DM patients. Median duration of follow-up was 55 months. The primary endpoint was death from any cause, MI, stroke, coronary revascularization, or hospitalization for angina. The major secondary clinical endpoint was cardiovascular death, MI, or stroke. The log rank test was used for ...
Adlette C. Inati, MD Head, Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Medical Director Childrens Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases Rafik Hariri University Hospital Beirut, Lebanon. Noncompliance with Iron Chelation Therapy in an Adolescent with Thalassaemia Major. Background Information....
Anemia leading to transfusion dependency (TD) and iron overload (IO) is commonly observed in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). In MDS, TD and IO have been retrospectively associated with inferior survival and worse clinical outcomes, including cardiac, hepatic and endocrine dysfunction, and, in some analyses, with leukemic progression and infectious complications. Although suggested by retrospective analyses, clear prospective documentation of the beneficial effects of iron chelation therapy (ICT) on organ function and survival in MDS patients with TD and IO is currently lacking.
Benefits of Chelation Therapy. Cancer Treatment. Free radicals plays an important role on the onset of cancer. By removing the metallic anions from the blood stream, EDTA helps the cells to remain healthy and to help the damaged cells to heal. Some research has shown a decrease in the incidence of death by cancer after EDTA treatment.
The process of removing heavy metals from the body is known as Chelation Therapy. Learn more about the medical procedure of chelation therapy.
BACKGROUND: Relatively little is known about endocrine function, bone mineral health, and growth during oral iron chelation therapy in β-thalassemia major patients (TM) on treatment with deferasirox. AIMS OF THE STUDY: To study the frequency of endocrine complications, IGF-1 levels and final adult standing height (FA-Ht) in patients with BTM in two groups of adult patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The first group (Group A; 15 patients, 6 females and 9 males) received oral iron chelation therapy (OIC) with deferasirox for 6 years before puberty; the second group (Group B;40 patients) attained the FA-Ht before the use of OIC (iron chelation therapy with deferoxamine (DFO) given subcutaneously, since the age of 2 years ...

EDTA chelation therapy involves repeated administrations of a synthetic amino acid to reduce atherosclerotic plaque and other mineral deposits throughout the cardiovascular system.. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive 40 infusions of either the standard chelation solution or placebo. The primary endpoint of this trial will be a composite of all cause mortality, myocardial infarction, stroke, coronary revascularization, and hospitalization for angina.. The results of TACT will provide either a significant positive result or an informative null result upon which rational clinical decision-making and health policy can be based. ...

Several researchers have developed a modified way to do intravenous chelation therapy. This has come about from a better understanding of how chelation works. The standard method, which has been used since the 1940s on many thousands of patients, is still a good method. The new method uses a calcium EDTA that can be infused faster and works well to remove heavy toxic metals, including mercury, lead, arsenic, nickel, and cadmium. All of these are fairly commonly found in todays toxic environment. So far, studies seem to indicate that it is just as good to clean out arterial plaque as the older method. It does not, however, have the long track record as the older method.. If only the calcium EDTA is used, it is safe to infuse in as little as one minute for most people. However, many feel a major benefit of the chelation process is to include some vitamins and minerals with it as is done in the older method. Thus we include these in a 100 ml bag (rather than 250 or 500) and infuse it in ...
The primary health problem affecting the arteries is arteriosclerosis. An artery is comprised of three basic layers: an inner layer known as the intima, a middle layer called the media, and an outer layer known as the adventitia. In some cases of arteriosclerosis yellowish plaques, called atheromas, develop within the intima and medial layers of the larger arteries. These plaques contain cholesterol, fatty materials, proteins and minerals. Another form of arteriosclerosis occurs when deposits of calcium develop within the media of the larger arteries. Chelation therapy works by attacking the calcium deposits in the arteries. Calcium exists in the body in many forms. Calcium in the bones and teeth is firmly bound to protein and other molecules and is not easily removed by chelation. Calcium in the blood may be bound in part by protein or in a readily available ionic form. This ionic level of calcium is rigidly controlled by the parathyroid gland. Chelation works by removing calcium from the blood ...
The troubles with a study called the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy, or TACT, are emblematic of the difficulties faced by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine as it tries to study alternative treatments in a scientific way.

In chelation therapy, which is used to treat coronary heart disease, a chelating agent EDTA that is infused through a vein clears artery blockages. EDTA also controls inflammation and damage to arteries.
Chelation therapy was discovered in the 1940s as a way of curing a person of heavy metal and chemical toxicity. This was particularly important at the time because many soldiers were coming home from World War two with mustard gas poisoning and other conditions.
Chelation therapy involves the administration of chelating agents to treat toxic metal poisoning. These chelating agents or chelants are used to remove heavy metals from the body in cases of overdose, poisoning or accumulation. The chelants are ligands that bind to metals present in the blood and tissues.
I had mercury poisoning for 3 years before having them drilled out. Then I did chelation therapy for a month and came out of it with the help of the chelated minerals. I know they worked. This was way way back in 1991. The mercury prevented my system from fully digesting proteins and then that caused many complications: stomach problems, muscle fatigue, intolerance to other foods, impotence and general ill feelings. A led to b which led to c which led to c-1, c-2 , c3 etc ...

Chelation treatment can take a long time depending on the method of obtaining the precious metals along with the chelation process picked. Chelation treatment is broadly referred to as a treatment for lead along with other heavy metal poisoning. Chelation has already established itself in the management of metal toxicity and also other metal poisoning, ventricular fibrillation, and hypocalcaemia. Chelation therapy is conducted in the event of copper, iron, aluminum and lead overload and then in some heavy metal toxicities. Chelation is one kind of many successful treatments against poisoning.. Chelation therapy is a impressive treatment for eradicating heavy metals, unwanted calcium supplements, and artery-damaging chemical compounds from your circulatory system. Deplaquing is actually a therapy that gives EDTA to people that, predominantly, have stopped up arterial blood vessels.

The New England Journal of Medicine had a recent article comparing angioplasty with stents to bypass surgery (CABG) for patients with diabetes and vascular disease. The end points were a composite of death from any cause, nonfatal heart attack, and nonfatal stroke. Conventional medical therapy was continued as well. The study showed that CABG had fewer deaths and heart attacks but more strokes. These end points were included in the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT), and those patients who were given EDTA chelation therapy had significantly fewer cardiac events. Diabetic patients with vascular disease did better than the rest of the patients. I believe it would save lives and improve the quality of life for patients at risk if the TACT results were promptly put into the accepted practice of medicine. The experience of our clinic over the last 30 years has shown that all vascular patients, including diabetics, do very well with chelation therapy, even when other therapies have not been ...

Sadly, my story is far from rare. Nearly every single day I hear from other people who also had severe adverse reactions to DMSA and DMPS. I have also heard of some who committed suicide days after a chelation treatment. Of course, the true cause of their death was never revealed. Paraphrasing, Dr. Klinghardt once told me he believed that at least 90% of patients in mental institutions are likely there as a result of being mercury toxic.. The majority of my clients are moderate to severely toxic cases and they are able to fully detoxify and recover as I did - without the further use of these chelators to remove the metals. However, some others began their heavy metal detox program as mildly toxic cases. After repeated chelation treatments with DMPS or DMSA, they suddenly developed severe symptoms, advancing to a dangerously acute and fragile state.. The reason for this is because the chelators DMPS and DMSA are highly toxic drugs and put a huge hardship on the liver and kidneys. They also bind ...

Other research has yielded some information about the possible mechanisms of EDTA in the body. A study published in Free Radical Biology and Medicine (Hininger et al., 2005) investigated whether the large doses of vitamin C (an antioxidant) typically administered with EDTA therapy might actually have a prooxidant effect. The researchers gave two different groups of subjects EDTA with and without 5 g vitamin C and found that indeed the biochemical measurements of free radicals were markedly increased soon after therapy in the vitamin C group compared to the group that did not receive vitamin C. However, over the course of 16 treatments, the researchers found that despite the prooxidant activity directly following each treatment, the long-term effects were antioxidant. They suggested that this therapy might be beneficial to patients with heart disease and diabetes because the long term effects involved protection against lipid peroxidation. They also noted that [t]he effects of multiple sessions ...

In contrast, nutritional balancing science begins at the cellular level and works at this level. The metals can slowly be removed at much deeper levels, as a result, and much more thoroughly. Several patients of mine had previously undergone 40 or more chelation treatments. This is usually considered enough to rid the body of lead, mercury or other metals. However, when these patients went on a nutritional balancing program, they began to eliminate significant amounts of these toxic metals that supposedly had already been removed. The only explanation I can think of is that deeper deposits were now being removed that were not reached by the chelating agents ...
Worse, the comments about how chelation therapy "works" reflect a misunderstanding of the pathophysiology of coronary heart disease: "…..to literally strip calcium out of the artery plaques that cause the clogging of the blood vessels that cause heart attacks and strokes. It can soften the hardening of the arteries caused by atherosclerosis, reversing the disease process." I wont go into a detailed explanation of the mechanisms of coronary atherosclerosis---look it up in any standard text or review---just suffice it to say that "soft" coronary plaques are much more rupture prone than "hard" plaques, and that a treatment to "soften" atherosclerotic plaques would be the wrong treatment. From the promotional comments about chelation therapy it is clear that the investigator(s) there believe that its effectiveness has already been proven ...

Previously I had encountered a similar situation when my sister had her baby. The little girl had a tough time from the very start. She was born prematurely, undersized and under weight. A tiny little thing who conveniently fit into her grandmothers palm. But, she was a fighter! She, Allison, grew quickly and things looked normal for awhile. But things were dramatically wrong. This beautiful little girl had no immune system, and her body did not make red-blood cells. Doctors scrambled to discover the underlying cause. And little Al visited every pediatric specialist in America. She required a blood transfusion almost monthly. But only adults may donate blood. Adult blood has far too much iron for a childs system to cope with. So the one thing keeping her alive, was sure to be the death of her, eventually. Chelation therapy to remove the iron would help some (Chelation therapy is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body). But it would not be enough in the long ...
A Lafayette couple, certain that chelation therapy has helped their autistic son, stepped squarely into the controversy surrounding the causes of autism and its treatment Tuesday as they joined 150 other parents in launching an international support group that will aggressively promote the treatment. The Handleys are now among a small minority of parents -- who, believing that the autism was caused by the mercury in thimerosal, a preservative that was routinely used in vaccines until recently -- are treating their children with chelation therapy, a lotion or pill that strips the body of heavy metals. The medical community differs on the cause of autism, a developmental disorder marked by communication problems and restricted or repetitive behavior. Mielke, who has an autistic son, is a member of a group called Defeat Autism Now and attends an international research conference on autism twice a year. In 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Public Health Service said vaccine

Use a water filter. No home-filter process is infallible and there are benefits and limitations in every type of water you choose to drink. As a general recommendation, for the best-quality water, consider installing a reverse-osmosis filter on your own tap (but be careful since some of these use plastic filters, which can leach chemicals into your drinking water). Reverse-osmosis however is very wasteful of water (a waste that is becoming increasingly hard to justify as this natural resource becomes increasingly scarce). Distilled water is pure, but may be lacking in certain minerals. Jug-type water filters have to do what they claim on the label; this means they filter out a substantial amount of contaminants such as chlorine and heavy metals. Make sure you change the filter regularly to avoid bacterial build-up ...
Indeed. It has never ceased to amaze me that a therapy like chelation therapy for cardiovascular disease, a disease for which there is no evidence that it works and plenty of evidence to suggest that it is no better than placebo, has graduated to a major NIH-funded Phase III study without having passed through the usual hurdles required of new therapies, namely evidence of effectiveness in animal models and then Phase I and/or Phase II studies. Alties frequently complain that "conventional medicine" doesnt give them a chance, doesnt let them prove themselves on a level playing field. Its true that alternative medicine doesnt compete on a level playing field with conventional medicine, but not in the way alties think. In actuality, alternative medicine is held to much lower standards than conventional medicine. In fact, the chelation therapy trial described above is perhaps the best example of giving alties a pass on the usual standards of evidence before funding a major Phase III trial. It ...
For the parents out there that are reading this and considering chelation therapy for their "autistic" child and are trying to decide whether it is worth it, let me just say this. Do not listen to the people that tell you that this is BS and that the parents doing this are stupid. Remember one thing. The vast majority of these people telling you NOT to do it HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH IT! Instead, listen to the thousands of parents that are doing it now. They do not lie. Get several opinions. Listen to the other parents that are not doing it also and compare the results of the two sets of children. That is why I decided to proceed with this treatment.

Chelation is a process of removing heavy metals from the body. The intake of the metals in different forms causes problems which can only be treated by the removal of these heavy metals from the body. During the world war, most of the people suffered due to the ingestion of lead. This ingestion of the foreign particles composed of metals such as lead creates problem at a later stage. Chelation is used to remove these toxic metals from the body. Chelation uses chemicals that can make these toxins amalgamate and settle. The amalgamated metals are then thrown out of the body. There are several Chelation methods that are used for this process. One of the methods, which are known as oral Chelation involves the consumption of chemicals orally that can make the metals settle in the body. One chemical that is commonly used is EDTA. EDTA Chelation is one of the most efficient ways of removing the toxins from the body. Chelation is also used to prevent the contraction of the arteries due the presence of ...

And the National Council for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) doesnt seem to mind. In researching for my posts on the NCCAM chelation study sites (Trial for the Assessment of Chelation Therapy, TACT) Im becoming convinced that the NCCAM is entrusting chelation research to promoters of unscientific health claims who have a vested interest in the results. This is particularly concerning because the blinding of the investigators is faulty. According to the study protocol the chelation solution must be mixed at the individual study sites. Patients randomized to the EDTA arm have ascorbic acid injected into the chelation solution at the local study site. Those assigned to placebo have placebo ascorbic acid injected into the mixture. The problem is, the ascorbic acid solution is yellow, while the placebo ascorbic acid is colorless. The work around for this problem is to wrap the ascorbic acid and placebo syringes in tinted translucent tape. It is claimed that the ascorbic acid does not ...
Patients with diabetes -- but not their nondiabetic counterparts -- had lower event rates following chelation therapy. Also, antidotes for the new oral anticoagulants may be on the way.
Chelation is basic chemistry; it is very effective at binding various metal ions so they can be removed from the bloodstream by the kidneys. That doesnt mean it cures autism, of course. It does treat mercury poisoning, but it cannot reverse the effects; damage due to real mercury poisoning (which has different symptoms than autism) is irreversible. Chelation is rather crude, though. The chemicals do not know which metal ions you want and which metal ions you dont; the best you can do is pick a chelator which a) you can get into the blood and b) wont strip out too many of the metal ions that you require for life. Disodium EDTA is often used in intravenous chelation therapy; this is the drug that killed Abubakar Tariq Nadama, an autistic boy. It is FDA approved only for acute lead poisoning, where the risk of lead poisoning exceeds the risk of harm from the EDTA itself. EDTA is very good at removing metals, but one of its favorites is not mercury or lead. Its calcium. The deaths due to EDTA ...

I will fully admit that I dont really know anything about chelation therapy. But I do know what it is like bucking the established medical practics for certain medical problems. I was told I had breast cancer in late August of 2010. I flat told my doctor that I needed time to decide what "I wanted to do". I took nearly 5 weeks to decide how I wanted to proceed. In the mean time I checked multiple sites on the internet for cancer therepies which included Surgery, Chemo, Radiation and Daily meds. I opted for a Lumpectomy, Radiation and Daily meds. I ended up with TWO surgeries actually. The first surgery was the Lumpectomy and a couple Lymph Nodes were removed. The Lymph Nodes were canerous so they had to go back in a month later and removed the other Nodes on that side. The only ones that were cancerous were the Nodes taken out originally. A couple months later I started Radiation. My Oncologist had a FIT that I refused Chemo. But I flat told him that I would rather die from the cancer than the ...

The Wired piece captures the melding of the internet age with medicine, science with the burden in the modern world to know everything.

And when I read something like this article, I do find certain concepts familiar to me - thoughts I have had regarding why are there so many vaccines now that we didnt get as infants? - and I see how that gets shaped and warped into an full anti-vaccine movement for some fearful, protective, good parents. To recognize my own pattern of thinking, even on other topics… that I know more than experts, that were all being lied to, that I Am On My Own, that I have to do all the research, that mistakes must NOT be made… is humbling.

Our chelation bath system helps lower blood ph back to healthy values. Key vitamin, mineral and enzyme pathways become more efficient, muscles relax, oxygenation improves, and calcium is more easily dissolved from the tissues. Our chelation bath system also helps re-educate the brain to accept slower breathing rates and helps reverse respiratory alkalinity. As breath rate and heart rate slow down, lifespan may be extended. Our bath system also donates hydrogen ions to the body. Hydrogen ions are considered the ultimate antioxidants due to their small size and powerful free radical reducing ability. Since EDTA can only effectively remove calcium in an alkaline environment. do not use this bath on the same day as using EDTA chelation.. The bath is also designed to. ...

That in itself is funny to me because chelation therapy is one of the only things that controls certain diseases such as Wilsons Syndrome ( an inherited disorder that makes it hard for the body to metabolize copper)Without chelation therapy, the copper accumulates in the body causing neuro symptoms just like Kim had ( and I know because I knew her) The symptoms that Kim had were as follows: Problems speaking,(her voice was shaky and sometimes it was hard for her to speak) Mood swings ( often went from very calm to very agitated easily) she had neuromotor skill difficulties. She also had something else that no one paid attention to(even though I tried to call their attention to it). She had copper colored deposits in her eyes that seemed to be indicative of Kayser Fleischer rings which are copper deposits that are found in ...
The term chelation (derived from the Greek chelos or claw) refers to the mineral- or metal-binding properties of certain compounds that can hold a central cation in a pincerlike grip. Developed in Germany in 1935, EDTA was originally used as a means of binding and extracting calcium in the dye industry.. In the 1940s, Martin Rubin, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C., discovered EDTAs effects on calcium in biological systems. This discovery led to the products use as an anticoagulant and is still used in "purple top" blood-collection tubes. Professor Rubins research led him to advance the use of EDTA for treatment of hypercalcemia and, eventually, lead poisoning.. In the 1950s and 1960s, several clinicians began to observe that patients treated for lead poisoning with IV EDTA experienced improvements in their cardiovascular conditions. This observation led to the widespread, but mostly empirical, use of EDTA therapy for heart patients ...

Treatment of the inherited blood disorder thalassemia depends upon the level of severity. For mild forms of the condition, advice and counseling are often all that are necessary. For more severe forms, treatment may consist in blood transfusion; chelation therapy to reverse iron overload, using drugs such as deferoxamine, deferiprone, or deferasirox; medication with the antioxidant indicaxanthin to prevent the breakdown of hemoglobin; or a bone marrow transplant using material from a compatible donor, or from the patients mother. Population screening has had some success as a preventive measure. Mild thalassemia : patients with thalassemia traits do not require medical or follow-up care after the initial diagnosis is made. Patients with β-thalassemia trait should be warned that their condition can be misdiagnosed for the common Iron deficiency anemia. They should eschew empirical use of Iron therapy; yet iron deficiency can develop during pregnancy or from chronic bleeding. Counseling is ...

You can do the blood tests for aluminum for sure. I dont know about chromium but I think it should be possible in a normal laboratory. Anyway Im not taking any chances any longer. Ive quit doing iontophoresis and the reason I started this thread was on account of an optic neuritis that Ive been dealing with. I did some research here in Italy and it seems theres an emergent strong correlation here between toxic metals and nerve degeneration (particularly aluminum and mercury). Now I did quite an amount of iontophoresis treatments with aluminum electrodes and that certainly scares me. So now Im going to do EDTA chelation therapy and see just how much of this stuff I have accumulated in my body ...
EDTA chelation therapy is a nonsurgical treatment for heart disease. It can help you avoid heart and artery disease or could be an alternative to bypass surgery.
Medicardium EDTA chelation suppositories are specially formulated for added health benefits. Magnesium/di-potassium EDTA helps alleviate stress, anxiety and body tension, promoting deep relaxation.
The most recent chelation study, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), was the TACT study. This was a placebo controlled double blind study. This was different from the previous observational studies. Instead of the researchers observing a response to preselected patients who received chelation, this time neither the patients nor the physicians knew who was getting EDTA or a placebo. The complete results of the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy were published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, on March 27, 2013. The trial demonstrated an 18 percent reduction in overall risk of new cardiovascular events in people over age 50 that had already had a heart attack ...
If you have repeated blood transfusions, its possible for your body to get too much iron. This can damage your heart and other organs. Make sure to avoid vitamins that contain iron, and dont take extra vitamin C, which can increase how much iron you absorb from food. If you have too much iron, your doctor may give you chelation therapy. This is a medicine that helps remove iron from your body.. Less common treatments for severe thalassemia include:. ...
CHICAGO, July 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Errant Gene Therapeutics, LLC ("EGT"), a pioneering boutique drug development firm specializing in Rare Diseases, announced the transfer of its clinical grade lentiviral vector, TNS 9.55.3, to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center ("MSKCC").

The trial protocol provides for the "in vitro" treatment of beta-thalassemia patients, offering the prospect for a cure for a chronic condition which would otherwise subject the patient to early death without incurring life-long regular blood transfusions and chelation therapy.. A new definitive agreement between EGT and SKI provides for MSKCC to lead the clinical trials and arrange for drug development partnerships for the treatment of beta-Thalassemia and Sickle Cell Disease, two of the worlds most prevalent and devastating hereditary ...
PBU : Increased urine lead excretion rate indicates significant lead exposure. Measurement of urine lead excretion rate before AND after chelation therapy has been used as an indicator of lead exposure. An increase in lead excretion rate in the post chelation specimen of up to 6 times the rate in the prechelation specimen is normal. Blood lead is the best clinical correlate of toxicity.   For additional information, see PBDB / Lead with Demographics, Blood.
Since the cause of the initial episode is unknown, prevention is not possible and treatment is currently confined to prevention of recurrence. This is most commonly attempted by a chronic transfusion program aiming to maintain HbS levels below 30 per cent and preferably below 20 per cent. This is initiated by exchange transfusion followed by regular top-up transfusions. Prevention of accumulation of iron requires regular chelation therapy with desferrioxamine, and difficulties with venous access may require installation of a permanent port. Despite the use of white cell and platelet-poor blood, minor incompatibilities are common and severe transfusion reactions may occur. The required duration of treatment is unknown, and high recurrence rates after stopping transfusion programs (even after 10 years) have led to the conclusion that treatment may be needed for life. There is a need to understand the risk factors for the initial stroke so that this may be avoided if possible. Investigation and ...

Dr. Nafysa Parpia offers a comprehensive detoxification program at GMA. The detoxification program takes place in two distinct phases:. The first phase includes supporting and cleansing the gastrointestinal tract, as well as addressing oxidative stress at the cellular level. This first phase is addressed through diet and some specific nutrients; it is a preparation for the stronger detoxification which takes place next. Should a patient have dysbiosis or parasites, these may need to be cleared with specific protocols before beginning the first phase of detoxification.. The second phase of detoxification is more intensive, and involves major organs and tissues where toxins and heavy metals are typically stored, or which release stored toxins during therapy. This phase often includes chelation therapy, depending on patients needs as seen in their labs, as well as other forms of detoxification based on patient history of chemical exposure, toxicity labs, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. ...

The vet staff have been carefully caring for Golden Eagle #18-0001 each day. The birds deep wound appears to be starting to heal, with granulation tissue forming and there is no sign of infection. A re-check lead test on January 7 revealed "low" results, indicating that the chelation therapy worked and removed the lead from the eagles blood. Because lead can be stored in the bones and released later, the eagle will receive another lead analysis in a week.. The eagle is not yet eating on his own, so the vet staff hand-feed the bird daily.

Succimer is a chelating (KEE-late-ing) agent that is used to remove a heavy metal (such as lead) from the body. Succimer binds to lead in the blood and allows it to be passed out in the urine. Succimer is used to treat lead poisoning. Succimer may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
The appropriate dose of L-Glutathione depends on age, health and other conditions. Recommended dosage is 50mg taken daily with meals, or as directed by a physician. For adults only. Take with food. A physician should monitor use of LGlutathione to ensure adequate levels are achieved.. L-Glutathione is also recommended to be used in conjunction with heavy metal chelation to facilitate excretion rather than redepositing mobilized toxins. This is due to heavy metal chelation mobilizing toxins and overloading filtration organs (kidney, liver). When chelation occurs too quickly, toxins can be redeposited in different organs resulting in additional damage. ...

BACKGROUND: Thalassaemia major is a genetic disease characterised by a reduced ability to produce haemoglobin. Management of the resulting anaemia is through transfusions of red blood cells. Repeated transfusions result in excessive accumulation of iron in the body (iron overload), removal of which is achieved through iron chelation therapy. A commonly used iron chelator, deferiprone, has been found to be pharmacologically efficacious. However, important questions exist about the efficacy and safety of deferiprone compared to another iron chelator, desferrioxamine. OBJECTIVES: To summarise data from trials on the clinical efficacy and safety of deferiprone and to compare the clinical efficacy and safety of deferiprone for thalassaemia with desferrioxamine. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Groups Haemoglobinopathies Trials Register, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Biological Abstracts, ZETOC, Current Controlled Trials and bibliographies of relevant publications. We contacted the manufacturers of deferiprone and
Patients with β thalassaemia major are dependent upon regular blood transfusions, and consequently are subjected to a large iron load. Accumulation of excess iron leads to heart failure. Iron chelation therapy can delay this process, but compliance is commonly poor. Severe cardiac failure in iron overloaded patients with β thalassaemia major has previously been reported as being invariably fatal.. A 21 year old man with β thalassaemia major was admitted with breathlessness. Examination revealed tachycardia, hypotension, and tachypnoea. He had a third heart sound, ankle oedema, raised venous pressure, smooth hepatomegaly, and dullness at the right base. Chest x ray showed cardiomegaly and a right pleural effusion. Ferritin was notably elevated (, 5000 μg/l). ECG showed sinus tachycardia. An echocardiogram (below left) showed severe left ventricular impairment (ejection fraction , 20%).. Despite diuretics the patient continued to decline. Inotrope and high dose desferroxiamine (70 mg/kg/day) ...
They also suggest that coronary angiography may be helpful if initial stress testing is inconclusive or has conflicting results. In terms of SIHD treatment, the guideline writing group updated the recommendation for chelation therapy from "Class III: No Benefit" to "Class IIb" indicating the usefulness of chelation therapy is uncertain for reducing cardiovascular events in SIHD patients. "Although disodium ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for specific indications, such as iron overload and lead poisoning, it is not approved for use in preventing or treating cardiovascular disease," they said. However, the writing group chose not to update the 2012 recommendation stating enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) may be considered to help relieve refractory angina in SIHD patients. After re-examining the scientific evidence the group noted that, "in general, existing data, largely from uncontrolled studies, suggest a benefit from EECP among ...
α-Thalassemia major is the result of a two α-chain gene deletion. These deletions may be on same gene (-/αα, α0-thalassemia) described as cis-deletion or on different genes (-α/-α, α+-thalassemia) described as trans deletion. The CBC shows mildly reduced Hb level with low MCV and MCH. HbF and HbA2 within reference level. The presence of thalassemic indices in patient with normal HbA2 and HbF is often the basis for diagnosis of α-thalassemia major, particularly if family history is positive. ...

Thalassemia major is a genetic disorder affecting hemoglobin synthesis, rendering individuals dependent upon lifelong blood transfusions. Consequently, iron overload occurs and patients have shortened life expectancy with the most common cause of death being heart failure. This trial tests whether the combination of traditional therapy (deferoxamine) with a newer drug (deferiprone) will prove more effective in removing cardiac iron than deferoxamine alone.

We herein report that DFP chelates the Fe 2+ ion at the active sites of selected iron-dependent histone lysine demethylases (KDMs), resulting in pan inhibition of a subfamily of KDMs. Specifically, DFP inhibits the demethylase activities of six KDMs - 2A, 2B, 5C, 6A, 7A and 7B - with low micromolar IC 50 s while ...
Liver iron concentration and liver impairment in relation to serum IGF-1 levels in thalassaemia major patients: A retrospective study
High-frequency blood donation was associated with reduced serum ferritin and increased brachial artery flow-mediated dilation compared with low-frequency blood donation. High-frequency blood donation did not improve insulin sensitivity after oral glucose loading and did not protect the vascular endothelium from the adverse effects of acute hyperglycemia after oral glucose loading compared with low-frequency blood donation. These findings indicate that increased flow-mediated dilation in high-frequency blood donors is not attributable to improved glucose tolerance.. Severe iron overload in the setting of hereditary hemochromatosis or thalassemia is associated with increased risk of diabetes related to impairment of insulin secretion and/or increased insulin resistance (5,6). In populations with severe iron overload, reduction of body iron stores with either phlebotomy or chelation therapy is associated with improved glucose tolerance (5,6). In subjects without overt iron overload, higher serum ...
An inevitable complication of blood transfusions is iron overload. Assessment of iron overload by serum ferritin is widely used, relatively easy to perform and most acceptable, but ferritin fluctuates with infection and inflammation. Therefore, serial measurements and trend of serum ferritin values should be considered.. Assessment of liver iron concentration (LIC) by liver biopsy is invasive and cannot be performed repeatedly. Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) measures LIC accurately. There are only few SQUID machines available worldwide as it is an expensive equipment to purchase and maintain.. Recently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using T2* and R2* relaxation parameters has been used to quantitatively assess iron overload in liver and heart. Cardiac T2* value ,20 milliseconds and liver T2* value, 6.3 milliseconds indicate iron overload.. ...
Deferiprone (tradenames include Ferriprox) is a drug that chelates iron and is used to treat iron overload in thalassaemia major. It was first approved for use in treating thalassaemia major in 1994 and had been licensed for use in Europe and Asia for many years while awaiting approval in Canada and the United States. On October 14, 2011, it was approved for use in the US under the FDAs accelerated approval program. Deferiprone was at the center of a protracted struggle between Nancy Olivieri, a Canadian haematologist and researcher, and the Hospital for Sick Children and the pharmaceutical company Apotex, that started in 1996 and delayed approval of the drug in North America. Olivieris data suggested deferiprone leads to progressive hepatic fibrosis. Deferoxamine Deferasirox Savulescu, J (2004). "Thalassaemia major: The murky story of deferiprone".

Background Thalassaemia is a hereditary anaemia due to a defect in the production of haemoglobin. Regular red blood cell transfusions are needed, particularly for the severe form of the disease, thalassaemia major. This results in iron overload. Since the human body has no means of actively getting rid of excessive iron, drug treatment (iron-chelating drugs) is needed. Several years ago, a newer oral iron chelator, deferasirox, was introduced.. Review question Does deferasirox offer advantages compared to placebo or to the other iron chelators deferoxamine or deferiprone in people with thalassaemia with regard to effectiveness and safety?. Study characteristics The evidence is current to 12 August 2016. This updated review includes 16 randomised controlled studies (1807 participants) containing 20 comparisons of deferasirox versus another treatment.. In people with transfusion-dependent thalassaemia, two studies compared deferasirox with placebo and nine studies (1251 participants) compared ...
