Safe and Effective
Pellet implantation therapy has been used in the United States, Europe and Australia for more than 75 years. Research has shown pellet implantation therapy to be superior to other methods of medication delivery because it delivers small, physiologic doses of medication in a slow, continuous release over time, avoiding fluctuations (spiking) that can occur with other methods. Also, unlike oral methods, the pellet delivery system bypasses the liver, which is not shown to negatively impact clotting factors, blood pressure, lipid levels, glucose, or liver function in some therapies.
The Federal Drug Administration
Pellet implants are not considered a FDA approved drug. However, this does not mean that they are not considered safe. The process to seek FDA approval for a drug is lengthy and very expensive. Because the compounds used to make the pellets are natural, and therefore not patentable, drug companies are not interested in manufacturing them nor going to the expense of having them approved.
