Metal-specific lymphocyte reactivity is downregulated after dental metal replacement.

Yaqob A, Danersund A, Stejskal VD, Lindvall A, Hudecek R, Lindh U. Neuro Endocrinol Lett. 2006 Feb-Apr;27(1-2):189-97.
This study was done to evaluate the results and clinical relevance of an optimized lymphocyte proliferation test, MELISA, for metal-induced inflammation in patients with CFS-like symptoms. The treatment of patients consisted of the replacement of incompatible dental materials (RID) together with supportive anti-oxidant therapy.
513 patients were tested by MELISA at the beginning of the study. Out of this group, 248 patients were available for follow-up MELISA after RID. Replacement of incompatible dental materials resulted in down-regulation of metal-induced lymphocyte sensitivity in vitro, as well as in the improvement of health status of majority of patients with unspecific CFS-like symptoms.
