A spokesperson for the provincial health ministry said there are programs for access to certain drugs on compassionate grounds, but not surgical procedures.
Andrew Morrison said the ball is in the federal government’s court now.
“Health Canada licensing … is required before we can take a better look at this,” he said.
Brown has been involved in exploring the activity around CCSVI and lobbying to make the procedure accessible.
The province, he says, has the power it needs.
“The Ministry of Health of Ontario has full ability to allow this treatment,” he said. “It would be as simple as Premier McGuinty to ask the OTHAC (Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee) to support the MS treatment for CCSVI in light of the 1,600 cases globally and not the smaller sample size in Ontario. He could order this to be available by OHIP. ”
