A chronologic review and explanation of the mechanism of chelation and of some of its possible therapeutic applications have been presented. The removal of metastatic calcium from the body can be effectively accomplished with intravenous infusions of EDTA in proper doses. This results in many instances in an improvement of function to organs and systems previously damaged by occlusive vascular disease. The mode of administration adopted in my clinic after trial and error and review of the reports available in the literature is described in detail. The extensive diagnostic and laboratory studies carried on am described. Their detailed discussion will be the subject of a subsequent report. Of 15 diabetic patients suffering from severe vascular complications, all were relieved of their various degrees of peripheral vascular insufficiency; 8 were restored to normal after suffering from strokes or advanced brain syndrome; 4 were improved of their cardiac failure and 3 patients with different degrees of diabetic retinopathy obtained dramatic subjective and objective benefits, the latter illustrated by periodically taken retinal microphotographs. Seven of these 15 diabetics have shown persistent improvement with reductions of their insulin needs after EDTA. It is hoped that this report, adding to the growing body of publications on chelation therapy already appearing in the literature, will stimulate added interest, so that these observations may be tested more extensively and if their validity is confirmed, that the possible and probable benefits of chelation therapy may reach the vast and constantly increasing numbers of victims of degenerative occlusive vascular disease which up to now suffers from a dearth of effective therapeutic procedures.
