Two unpleasant outcomes?? Two people losing their lives are not just unpleasant outcomes doctor. Cheer what I do not understand is ANYONE, including Montel, who has some type of investment(especially financial) in any other treatment or research besides CCSVI is automatically self-serving. What about people invested in CCSVI research? They are all only in it for the common good,right? Sorry for the unfortunate hurdles doctor.

It's a strong chemotherapy drug and depletes the lymphocytes and white blood cells of the immune system. I could die from contracting a 'bug' that normal people can fight off. Why is ccsvi getting more negative press about it's possibly related one death and one unfortunate stent that migrated? How many times has this procedure (ccsvi) been performed around the world? How many times has death been the outcome? I don't equivocate ccsvi with death. I could die getting hit by a car crossing the street. Oh wait a second...MS keeps me from walking I guess I should keep MS so I won't get hit by a car.
