56% Correlation

Postby tonyfonda » Thu Feb 11, 2010 4:28 am

Alright, the Buffalo results are out.

56% correlation is far from the 100% claimed by Zamboni.

I am trying to stipulate what this could mean:

(i) There is no causality effect between vein narrowing and MS. Narrowing occurs as a symptom of the disease (like itching, blindness and else) for half of the patients.

(ii) OR, CCSVI is a factor leading to MS. The fact that only 50% have it coincides with the statistic that 50% go into Phase 2 (Secondary progressive), while the rest are stabilizing as the veins open after a while. So the one who still have narrowing (say after 10-15 years from disease discovery) are on a bad course.

Any thoughts?
