Moreover, if I understand correctly only doppler results are included not MRV (contrary to Zamboni study which was based on Doppler and MRV). So maybe percentage will go up with CCSVI cases detected only with MRV not doppler.
Cheerleader or others, could you confirm last point?
These preliminary results are based on the first 500 participants in the Combined Transcranial and Extracranial Venous Doppler Evaluation (CTEVD) study, which began at UB in April 2009. Investigators are planning to examine 500 additional subjects, who will be assessed in the second phase of the study with more advanced diagnostic tools.
"The data encourage us to continue on the same course," he says. "They show that narrowing of the extracranial veins, at the very least, is an important association in multiple sclerosis. We will know more when the MRI and other data collected in the CTEVD study are available."
