MELISA Diagnostics provides a blood test to diagnose metal hypersensitivity. The MELISA® test is used by healthcare professionals worldwide to determine if metals present in dental restorations and surgical and orthopaedic implants are suitable for patients. Metal-induced inflammation might not only cause skin conditions but may also lead to systemic health effects such as muscle pain, fatigue and cognitive problems, among others.

 

If a health problem begins after you have received an implant, you might benefit from taking a MELISA® test and should consult your doctor or dentist to refer you for testing. MELISA® testing is available through clinics or licensed laboratories.
