Before and after photos presented at 2019 International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) show the effect of chelation therapy in diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI), highlighting its potential to improve unhealed ulcers and gangrene. Presenter Gervasio A. Lamas, MD has devoted many years to investigating the therapy’s potential, most famously in the TACT trial of post-MI patients.
An e-poster and presentation at the 31st International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) highlighted positive results from a pilot study of edetate disodium-based chelation in diabetic patients with critical limb ischaemia (CLI). The study authors noted that TACT demonstrated a reduction in cardiac events in diabetic patients receiving edetate disodium-based chelation.
Scott Doughty, MD aims to decrease the number heart attacks, strokes, and deaths for individuals through TACT2 and chelation therapy. Dr. Doughty is the startup inspiration behind U.P. Holistic Medicine, one of seven clinical sites in Michigan. Of these seven sites, U.P. Holistic Medicine currently ranks second in number of participants, just behind Henry Ford Hospital.
