MELISA is an optimised, clinically validated blood test which measures hypersensitivity to multiple metals from a single sample. MELISA can also to help in the diagnosis of active Lyme disease.
Exposure to metals in dental fillings and implants, joint prostheses, pacemakers, environmental pollutants and jewellery can lead to health problems in susceptible individuals.
MELISA improves laboratory diagnosis by confirming active disease in patients with clinical symptoms of Lyme.
The FDA has issued a statement addressing the concerns about the bio-compatibility and function of medical devices. Our conference in November 2018 mirrored these concerns
“In daily practice, I see how dental metal fillings (eg amalgam), as well as dental or orthopedic implants, can have an adverse effects on arrhythmias (eg atrial fibrillation). For many patients, establishing a timeline between a dental or orthopaedic procedure and their symptoms developing will aid diagnosis."
