“Before undertaking large expensive studies to examine the benefits of treatment of these blockages, several important questions must be answered: Do these blockages occur in patients that do not have MS? Do they occur in all patients with MS? Can we detect brain iron pooling in patients with blocked veins? We hope to answer these questions.”
“Results of this study will definitively confirm whether venous obstructions are clearly associated with MS or are a normal phenomenon. In addition, it will indicate whether excess iron deposition in the brain correlates with the presence of associated venous obstruction. Only with such results could a treatment trial aimed at relieving obstructions be considered.”
Timing of this study: 7/1/10-6/30/12

So far we'll get research that's positive toward CCSVI and research that's negative, it's messy that way, and no one study is at this time definitive. I don't feel too threatened. There are enough CCSVI investigators in action that I think we will get answers and they won't be from the study that Dr. Freedman is involved in. This is a relatively easy thing to prove or disprove, all things considered.

Today I took a 10 hour long intensive training class, another tomorrow, and for the next two weekends, my first in years, to further my education and skill set in my trade, my mind felt as sharp and body as vibrant at the end of the day as the beginning. Ready to hit it again tomorrow. Nice to have the brain back, the energy level, not just to survive any more, but to thrive.
