NIH branch drops study of chelation as autism treatment

The National Institute of Mental Health called off a study on chelation -- the removal of heavy metals, such as lead, in the body -- to treat autism in children because of safety concerns for the procedure. Scientists had planned to test a chelation drug on 4- to 10-year-old children with autism to investigate whether mercury in childhood vaccines may be tied to the disorder.
