You have your MoM's ions

nd infant cobalt and chromium levels in the Implant Group, while the Control Group showed no correlation.
  • Offspring of women with MoM implants had about half the levels of cobalt in their bloodstream as their mothers and approximately 15 percent of their mother's chromium levels, while there was no significant difference among ion levels between mothers and infants in the Control Group.
  • There was no statistically significant differences in levels of titanium or nickel among any of the cohorts.

    Dr. Jacobs noted that because the cobalt and chromium levels of the infants did not increase to those of their mothers, the data suggests the placenta does modulate the transfer of metal ions to the fetus.

    "The next step is to find out what, if any affect metal ions have on fetal or infant development," he said. "The best way to do that would be through the establishment of a national joint registry by which clinicians could input and access long-term data."

    He added that, in the meantime, medical device companies are feverishly working to develop new technologies that will reduce the release of ions through improvements in wear and corrosion properties of metal implants. "Any advancements in this area will directly benefit patients," he said.
