By ICIM Chelation Speaker Terry Chappell MD: Protocol controversies for treating cardiovascular disease with EDTA chelation
Townsend Letter
What are we trying to accomplish with chelation treatments? If a patient is substantially "loaded" with toxic metals, treatment goals will be different than those for one with high-grade blockage disease in critical arteries. Patients suffering with crippling inflammatory and/or autoimmune diseases might require a another approach.

By ICIM Chelation Speaker John Parks Trowbridge MD: Cardiovascular chelation
"This can't be happening" is often the first thought. Gripping, gnawing chest pains give way to a heavier, crushing feeling that generates fear. The idea of "indigestion" soon gives way to "impending doom." In this setting, 9-1-1 is sometimes a reluctant last resort, after antacids and resting produce only a pitiful response. The arrival of paramedics brings reassurances from technicians who methodically start oxygen, apply EKG leads, and prepare for transport.

ICIM Chelation Workshop speaker Bruce Dooley MD: An open letter to mainstream cardiologists
My name is Dr. Bruce Dooley and have I practiced in Fort Lauderdale and Naples for 20 years. Having recently arrived in Palm Beach County, I am writing to all the local cardiologists to both personally introduce myself as well as seeking your cooperation and participation in an outcomes study involving EDTA chelation therapy.

You may be aware of the recent significant clinical results of the seven-year Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT). This randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study was funded by the NIH and headed up by Dr. Tony Lamas (chief of cardiology, Miami Mt. Sinai Hospital). At the November 2012 Annual meeting of the AHA, Lamas announced that the study proved that EDTA intravenous therapy was both clinically effective and safe. Regrettably, the response from the cardiologists on the panel was that "more studies were needed."

Wikipedia document by Gervasio Lamas MD: Chelation therapy for cardiovascular disease
Chelation is a process by which a charged molecule captures an ion with an opposite charge, inactivates it, and then permits its excretion, usually by a renal route. Thus, chelation therapy, which involves multiple administrations of the chelating agent, helps detoxify the blood. Ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), a commonly used chelating agent, binds to and permits excretion of metals such as lead, cadmium, nickel, cobalt, iron and aluminum. In addition to its use for the treatment of metal poisoning, chelation therapy has been considered an alternative medicine for the treatment of atherosclerotic disease.

Research by ICIM Chelation Speaker Robert Waters MD: EDTA chelation therapy, without added vitamin C, decreases oxidative DNA damage and lipid peroxidation
Chelation therapy is thought to not only remove contaminating metals but also to decrease free radical production. However, in standard ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) chelation therapy, high doses of vitamin C with potential pro-oxidant effects are often added to the chelation solution. The authors demonstrated previously that the intravenous administration of the standard chelation cocktail, containing high amounts of vitamin C, resulted in an acute transitory pro-oxidant burst that should be avoided in the treatment of pathologies at risk of increased oxidative stress such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
