I don't think that they will. I think that neurologists will be much more inclined to think of this as an indicator of a predisposition to MS as opposed to a causative factor of our illness. You are quite right regarding the iron deposit data. What will cause a stir is if iron deposits in our brains are shown to correspond with various venous abnormalities. That will be as striking as a 100% correlation, MS incidence with evidence of CCSVI.
55% of MS patients and 22% of healthy controls.. It's not as striking a differernce as the newsletter last week led me to believe it would be. The wording of that newsletter led me to believe that the most exciting MS research in 200 years was about to be unveiled.
