q: is it *certain* that the iron accumulation in MS brains occurs because of reflux causing iron to cross the BBB and be deposited there or is it at this stage an *interpretation*
i am not saying i disagree with the idea of an iron deposition - reflux correlation, i am just wondering about the level of certainty in the sentence..

that is that for the moment, my keyboard seems to be stuck on french at this site but not elsewhere, it is making me a bit nuts and i should be doing other things anyway
thanks for bringing the page here for review, squiff, i am sure more informed heads than mine will be able to comment further..

The german MS society has published two articles on CCSVI so far, one in october telling that this is an old idea that was abandoned decades ago because there was more evidence found that it's an autoimmune desease (!), and their crappy official statement on CCSVI in december (which I posted here but won't link, it's good if it's forgotten.). And you can't even find those articles unless you type CCSVI in their search tool.
Nothing else about CCSVI, nothing about this paper saying that MS isn't autoimmune. But much about what prizes they won and what Federal Crosses of Merit they got. It's a tragedy. No, they aren't even reporting sceptically or doubtful, they simply ignore it or try to hush up CCSVI in the german-speaking countries (up to 150.000 PwMS).
Together with a few other patients and caregivers I translate as much as my limited time as an entrepreneur allows and put it on their and our forum and elsewhere. But, for god's sake, it should be their job!
