The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has received encouraging results of UK testing on the silicone gel breast implants manufactured by the French company Poly Implant Prosthese (PIP).

The tests found no evidence of genotoxicity (potential for cancer) or chemical toxicity of the filler material in the implants.

The tests are not as extensive as those being carried out in France, but they have provided initial information as to whether there is a safety issue with the filler material.

MHRA Director of Devices Clinical, Dr Susanne Ludgate said, “It’s reassuring that our test results have shown no evidence of any associated risks with the filler material.

“We are however waiting for the results of the French tests which are more extensive and include mechanical testing of the implant shell because there maybe a suggestion of an increased rupture rate compared with other breast implants. We will update clinicians and women once these test results are available and provide further advice on patient management as necessary.

“If women have any concerns, they should speak to their implanting surgeon.

“Implanting surgeons should report any clinical and radiological problems associated with these implants to the MHRA Adverse Incident Centre.

“Further advice and information can be obtained from the Association of Breast Surgery and the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).”

Thanks so much Cookie for posting the up date. It's so good to hear that those flippin things are not toxic! Have been so scared cause I had mine for 6 years and I was worried that they may have damaged my long term health. Finally feel like I can enjoy my new boobies now! :cheer:Xx
