Dear _______:

Thank you for your application to the CTEVD research study being conducted by the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center and the Jacobs Neurological Institute in Buffalo, NY.

At this time, we have completed enrollment of MS patients who are male, aged 40-49, with a disease course of relapsing-remitting.

Thank your for your interest, patience and support for this exciting new research. We hope to conclude the study in Spring 2011.

Sincerely,

Christina Brooks

Spring 2011! So much for a sense of urgency...I mean...yay, more research!

OK.... Here I come to the defense of BNAC and their CTEVD study. I was just at BNAC last week for the self-pay testing program. BNAC is working very hard and doesn't have much funding. Many people are working 7 days a week !!!! I had my scans on Wednesday and people worked through the night to get me my results on Thursday morning.

The BNAC group is a small group of dedicated researchers who want to see the CCSVI science work out. They need our help not criticism. Many people are fundraising for BNAC because they need the $$$. Ashton Embry gave them a $75,000 challenge grant as long as we patients do grass roots fundraising via MStery parties. The Wheelchair Kamikazi was at the first MStery part in New York City !!! Please go to bnac.net for more information. The proof of CCSVI will not happen overnight no matter how much we want it.

I am holding a MStery party. I hope to raise $1000.00 or much more. This is what BNAC needs from us and they will deliver the results.

I read recently Direct-MS has now contributed 125K to BNAC?

They have our full support.

mangio.... I think you are right about the $125,000 !! He recently contributed another $50,000. As for not getting your results from CTEVD study, well I signed up for that but never was called. I would have participated in it even if I didn't get my results. CTEVD is blinded completely. I think that is why participants don't get results. But then you don't have to pay either. You get to contribute to the science either way. It is a personal choice.

part of the delay is due to lack of funding as per dr. Zividinov at the AAN convention. It's not like they have any big backers as Teva and Biogen did to get their therapies to market quickly. This is sloooowww university based research.

Flash - sorry you didn't get into the CTEVD study. I just saw a post on FB
http://www.facebook.com/pages/CCSVI-in- ... 297?v=wall
about an MRV study at OSHU - have you heard any details?

Billmeik - why would I stay away from BNAC if I'm RRMS? Did I miss something? I was just there last week for the same testing as OC... Your truth may not be true for all...

I support BNAC and what they are doing. Otherwise I wouldn't have paid to be part of their testing.
