Chelation therapy, an alternative-medicine technique dismissed as fringe medicine by many conventional heart doctors, is getting a shot in the arm from federal officials who are providing a $37 million grant to study its benefits as a mainstream cardiovascular treatment.

The National Institutes of Health grant, announced this week, will allow the Mount Sinai Medical Center of Florida to conduct a follow-up study of promising preliminary research that suggests chelation therapy may be as beneficial as the use of conventional medication and treatments — or more so — in preventing heart attacks.
