  • “MELISA is a fundamental cornerstone of my practice."

    Dr Mary Ellen Chalmers, DMD

    Functional Medicine Based Dentistry, Santa Rosa, CA, USA

  • “I have many patients that are interested in this type of testing associated with implants. Thank you for the great work you have done.”

    Dr Scott Schroeder, Podiatric Physician and Surgeon

    Foot & Ankle Center, Wenatchee, WA, USA

  • “A type IV metal allergy is often overlooked as a culprit in many of today's chronic illnesses. MELISA testing gives targeted information on what needs to be avoided. Many patients get their life back with this information instead of remaining chronically ill for the rest of their days.”

    Dr Toril Jelter MD, General Practitioner & Pediatrician

    Mount Diablo Integrated Wellness Center, Walnut Creek, CA, USA

  • “Working in holistic dentistry I use an integrated approach and treat the patient as a whole, focusing on the dental need in the larger context of the person’s overall well-being. MELISA provides me with invaluable information for the most suitable materials to be used.”

Melisa Diagnostics

When MELISA attended the FDA Medical Devices meeting last year, we highlighted the lack of awareness - amongst medical professionals and manufacturers alike - about the risk of hypersensitivity to metal implants in a minority of patients. Those who raise concerns about their metal allergy are often told by their surgeons that it won’t be a problem. We are therefore delighted that the FDA has issued a recommendation regarding labelling of Nitinol, commonly used in medical devices; "Warning: This device contains nitinol, an alloy of nickel and titanium. Persons with allergic reactions to these metals may suffer an allergic reaction to this implant. Prior to implantation, patients should be counselled on the materials contained in the device, as well as potential for allergy/hypersensitivity to these materials."
