Conclusions
Among patients with a prior MI, a regimen of 40 infusions of disodium EDTA-based infusions safely reduced cardiovascular events in a post-MI population, suggesting that xenobiotic metal pollutants are cardiovascular risk factors. The effect of the chelation infusions was enhanced with high doses of oral multivitamins and multiminerals. The therapeutic benefit was particularly striking in diabetic patients. These results were observed against a background of modern evidence-based post-MI therapy.
