Controversial MS treatment lessens fatigue, research shows

Postby MSUK » Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:50 am


Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients may get some relief from severe fatigue from an experimental procedure to open blocked blood vessels in the chest and neck, suggests preliminary Stanford University research being presented at the 23rd annual International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET).

A year after doctors used either angioplasty or stents to open blocked veins of 30 MS patients, they suffered about half thefatigue, on average, than they had before the treatment, according to data being presented by Michael Dake, M.D., Thelma and Henry Doelger Professor in the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, Calif. Patients with the most common type of MS – relapsing-remitting – benefitted most.... Read More - ... ageid/2944

Dangerous research

PwMS must be warned of this dangerous research which has killed many pwMS (well only one really). Blocked veins are in the imagination of these vascular doctors who are preying on the vunerabilities of pwMS.

This reasearch was not fully double blinded nor placebo controlled so the results must be ignored.

Stanford and the Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute in Miami, plan to begin a trial in 2011 to assess the condition and treatment with angioplasty. “If a person has MS and has a blood vessel obstruction, and if it’s removed, we will look at whether we can we demonstrate objectively that there is improvement in blood flow,” Dr. Dake said.

This seems like an endpoint that is very achievable, I was just talking about this over in Zamboni's new trial thread.

Hurray Dr. Dake!! Always thinking and providing us with valuable data. I think I am one of the 30, how exciting!!
Treated by Dake 10/19/09, McGuckin 4/25/11 and 3/9/12- blockages in both IJVs, azy, L-iliac, L-renal veins. CCSVI changed my life and disease.
