DMSA Monograph

Meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is a sulfhydryl-containing, water-soluble, non-toxic, orally administered, metal chelator which has been in use as an antidote to heavy metal toxicity since the 1950s. It is also known as succimer and sold as a prescription under the trade name Chemet. DMPS chelation is most commonly used to remove lead in both adults and children, although it may also be used for mercury poisoning and for dangerous levels of other heavy metals. Clinical use and research substantiates this compound’s efficacy and safety.

Heavy Metals & Infertility

Professor Ingrid Gerhard, M.D.

Professor Ingrid Gerhard, M.D. and her colleagues have been seriously investigating the effect of heavy metals as well as pesticides on fertility. Associated with the University of Heidelberg Gynecological Clinic, Professor Gerhard’s group has examined more than 1,000 patients for mercury, fertility problems and symptoms. Patients were also examined for pesticide contamination. Urine mercury levels were measured after administering an oral chelating agent (Dimaval), and blood was examined for various polychlorinated compounds. The high mercury group had more hormonal disturbances, immune disturbances, recurring fungal infections, alopecia and allergies. A number of different hormonal disturbances were found, sex hormones among them. These differences were all statistically significant and some were very marked. Allergies and hair loss were 2-3 times more common in the high-mercury group. The doctors at the clinic have successfully treated fertility problems with a combination of vitamins/minerals and amalgam removal. [Excerpted from an article by Sam Ziff]

Heavy metals and fertility

J Toxicol Environ Health A 1998; 54 (8): 593-611 


ABSTRACT

Heavy metals have been identified as factors affecting human fertility. This study was designed to investigate whether the urinary heavy metal excretion is associated with different factors of infertility. The urinary heavy metal excretion was determined in 501 infertile women after oral administration of the chelating agent 2,3-dimercaptopropane-1-sulfonic acid (DMPS). Furthermore, the influence of trace element and vitamin administration on metal excretion was investigated. Significant correlations were found between different heavy metals and clinical parameters (age, body mass index, nationality) as well as gynecological conditions (uterine fibroids, miscarriages, hormonal disorders). Diagnosis and reduction of an increased heavy metal body load improved the spontaneous conception chances of infertile women. The DMPS test was a useful and complementary diagnostic method. Adequate treatment provides successful alternatives to conventional hormonal therapy.

Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth

We know Mercury Amalgam (Silver) Fillings release poisonous mercury vapor. We know there is no harmless level of mercury! Yet there are still dentists & patients who refuse to accept these facts!

Dr. Tom McGuire’s video Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth provides conclusive quantitative proof that not only do amalgam fillings release toxic mercury vapor – but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling – will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace.

 

Dimaval®: Scientific Product Monograph

The active ingredient of Dimaval®, the sodium salt of (RS)-2,3-bis(sulfanyl)propane-1-sulfonic acid, previously known as (RS)-2,3-Di-mercapto-1- propanesulfonic acid (DMPS), is a complexing agent from the group of vicinal dimercaptans.  Indications: Clinically manifested, chronic and acute poisoning with mercury (metallic mercury, vapor, inorganic and organic compounds); Chronic poisoning with lead.

By virtue of its two vicinal mercaptan groups DMPS can form stable complexes (chelates) with a variety of heavy metals. These chelates are predominantly excreted via the kidneys with the urine. In this way DMPS enhances the excretion of heavy metals, especially of those in the space outside of body cells, i.e. extracelluar space. However, the toxicity of heavy metals is already reduced by complex formation, since heavy metals in the organism are no longer available to block the SH-groups in vital enzymes.

Role of Mercury Toxicity in Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease, and Stroke

Dr. Mark C. Houston is Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Director of the Hypertension Institute at Saint Thomas Hospital in Nashville, TN. He has written an important review article on the cardiovascular consequences of mercury exposure in humans. The article discusses how mercury toxicity in humans is related to hypertension, generalized atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease (CHD), myocardial infarction (MI), cardiac arrhythmias, heart rate variability, sudden death, cerebrovascular accidents (CVA), carotid artery disease, renal dysfunction, and total mortality.

ABSTRACT

Mercury has a high affinity for sulfhydryl groups, inactivating numerous enzymatic reactions, amino acids, and sulfur-containing antioxidants (N-acetyl-L-cysteine, alpha-lipoic acid, L-glutathione), with subsequent decreased oxidant defense and increased oxidative stress. Mercury binds to metallothionein and substitute for zinc, copper, and other trace metals, reducing the effectiveness of metalloenzymes. Mercury induces mitochondrial dysfunction with reduction in adenosine triphosphate, depletion of glutathione, and increased lipid peroxidation. Increased oxidative stress and reduced oxidative defense are common. Selenium and fish containing omega-3 fatty acids antagonize mercury toxicity. The overall vascular effects of mercury include increased oxidative stress and inflammation, reduced oxidative defense, thrombosis, vascular smooth muscle dysfunction, endothelial dysfunction, dyslipidemia, and immune and mitochondrial dysfunction. The clinical consequences of mercury toxicity include hypertension, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, reduced heart rate variability, increased carotid intima-media thickness and carotid artery obstruction, cerebrovascular accident, generalized atherosclerosis, and renal dysfunction, insufficiency, and proteinuria. Pathological, biochemical, and functional medicine correlations are significant and logical. Mercury diminishes the protective effect of fish and omega-3 fatty acids. Mercury inactivates catecholaminei-0-methyl transferase, which increases serum and urinary epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This effect will increase blood pressure and may be a clinical clue to mercury-induced heavy metal toxicity. Mercury toxicity should be evaluated in any patient with hypertension, coronary heart disease, cerebral vascular disease, cerebrovascular accident, or other vascular disease. Specific testing for acute and chronic toxicity and total body burden using hair, toenail, urine, and serum should be performed.

Thimerosal (Ethylmercury), Vaccines and Autism

Charlie Crist, the Governor of Florida alarmed at the growing rate of Autism and its effect on the children and families of the State of Florida as well as the economic impact on healthcare and educational systems, commissioned by Executive Order 08-36 (March 7, 2008) the Autism Task Force, a broad Panel of individuals from both private and public sectors, to examine and evaluate the risks to the children and economy of the State of Florida.

On September 24-25, 2008 Governor Crist’s Task Force on Autism Spectrum Disorders convened at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. These are highlights from the two day conference.

The use of thimerosal (ethylmercury), a preservative used in vaccinations, was the hot topic of the two day conference.

FACT:

Mercury and its compounds are hazardous to humans.

Ethylmercury, mercury’s most dangerous compound, is used extensively in vaccines as a preservative and anti-bacterial agent.

 

 

Immunoexcitotoxicity and Autism Spectrum Disorders (Lecture)

Dr. Russell L. Blaylock (born 1945) is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and lecturer. He is a former clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and is currently a visiting professor in the biology department at Belhaven College.

The autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of related neurodevelopmental disorders that have been increasing in incidence since the 1980s. Despite a considerable amount of data being collected from cases, a central mechanism has not been offered. A careful review of ASD cases discloses a number of events that adhere to an immunoexcitotoxic mechanism. This mechanism explains the link between excessive vaccination, use of aluminium and ethylmercury as vaccine adjuvants, food allergies, gut dysbiosis, and abnormal formation of the developing brain.
