one more time .... this BNAC information tells us that they HAVE found CCSVI in pwMS. The numbers change ..... as is reflected in the degree of disability ...... no big surprise there .... hence, the BBQ joke.
This BNAC study only serves to excite the Neurologists at the Big Hawaii Bun Toss.
So what have they been told ?
Answer : The BNAC examined a variety of pwMS and some healthy controls - using Doppler - and found a variance of results .
As we now know ...... this is only the first step in the process of identifying pwMS ..... or some other condition. To simplify .... they have a non-invasive medical procedure [ Doppler radar ] proof .... of unusual looking veins in the neck , that drain the blood from the head back to the heart.
This evidence DOES NOT prove or disprove ..... blood flow.
Blood Flood needs to be measured. That's the next step. And Professor Zamboni has done this . [ See the Neck Collar thread ]
I DO NOT see the 500 person BNAC study reporting blood flow ....this is the logical next important step.
But that's not to criticize the BNAC . They did as they said they would .... test some people for CCSVI ....... using Doppler Radar only.
Call all 500 test subjects back ..... and test for FLOW.
I applaud the fine work of Dr. Zivadov and Bianca- Weinstock ...... and I end this post quoting the headline of their report .....
Higher CCSVI Prevalence Confirmed in MS , but Meaning of Findings Remains Unclear
Enough said . Bob .... do you know what UNCLEAR means ?
