Title: The Evidence Basis for Chelation Therapy: Indications, Dose, Duration, and Outcomes

Learning Objectives: Improve clinical practice with respect to use of chelation therapy 2. Knowledge of when and when not to use chelation therapy 3. Knowledge of outcome differentials of various therapies for intoxications.

Gap: “On November 4, 2012, the TACT (Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy) investigators reported publicly the first large, randomized, placebo-controlled trial evidence that edetate disodium (disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) chelation therapy significantly reduced cardiac events in stable post–myocardial infarction (MI) patients. These results were so unexpected that many in the cardiology community greeted the report initially with either skepticism (it is probably wrong) or outright disbelief (it is definitely wrong) (1). The TACT trial had been controversial since the announcement of its funding in 2002. The primary justification used by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for the study was that it was being conducted to prove that chelation did not work, so that the many patients who sought out this therapy every year would be armed against the unjustified assertions of those in the alternative medicine community who promoted its use.”
