If there is anyone that people should be upset with it should be Zamboni himself who made CCSVI sound like a slam dunk but yet has been unable to convince the medical community that CCSVI even exists but of course that would put into question his hypothesis and that is a no no.
Doctors Dake, Sclafani, Hubbard, et al. are part of the medical community are they not?
NHE ... don't forget;
Doctors Zivadinov, Haskal, Sinan (Kuwait), Siskin, Englander, (my wife's doctor who will remain unnamed at this point but is at a prestigious US university hospital - several other board members can confirm that claim - but will not name him), Saeed, Simka (Poland), Vogl (Germany), MacDonald (Canada), Bonn ... Mehta
Doctors in Rhode Island, Indiana, Chicago, Minnesota, Florida, California, Texas, Delaware, New Jersey, Virginia, Arizona (who I'm not going to name because their names aren't out there - though I have seen some of them)
Doctors in Taiwan (see Algis' posts) ... China, Scotland, Australia, Jordan
... doesn't seem like such "a very small fraction" after all. Especially considering all the specialties out there - and the relative few who study the vasculature. It actually seems like a high amount of people who understand the vascular system are VERY interested in CCSVI ...
And aside from Simka who is also doing research ... none of those include "medical tourism" ...
and now they're going to subject mice to it ...
