CCSVI, it would appear that CCSVI is not the primary cause of MS.
The MSRC website only quotes:
AE> The second study at Georgetown University looked at the nature and origin of the venous malformations responsible for CCSVI. The vascular researchers found that the venous malformations are of congenital origin and are not the product of post-birth, environmental insults or the MS disease process itself. This in utero formation of the venous malformations means CCSVI occurs BEFORE the MS disease process begins, an important constraint for understanding the cause/effect relationship between MS and CCSVI.................
It is a question of words out of context, which will mislead people who just read the MSRC website.
To me, the simplest model for MS, which fits all the data, is that MS is an
autoimmune disease which is greatly exacerbated by the chance (and
common) presence of CCSVI. Thus, almost all those with high levels of
disability are likely to have CCSVI whereas most of those with benign MS are
likely not to.

What is the guarantee that they will not develop MS eventually. Where is the study that shows that their immune system must be less sensitive.
