The government of British Columbia will spend $700,000 to track MS patients who have had the liberation therapy overseas.
I cut and pasted the above from the CTV website.
After hearing this mentioned on the news this evening I could find no further details on the CTV website. I sent them an email asking for more detail.
Does anyone else have further information on this story??
Please post and share with us if you do.

Apparently the money for some kind of registry will go to the UBC MS Clinic.
Will wait to see what kind of registry is developed and if it involves a retrospective study which many of us have been calling for.
In the mean time some thoughts....
If it is to be just a registry that is one thing. If it is to be a study, then, I would much rather the money and task be assigned to a group of neutral vascular specialists who could monitor vascular changes, perfusion and blood flow. Those vascular specialists could be given access to our neuro. exams and MRIs to include that data in the studies.
Neurologists who have been actively lobbying against persons with MS having access to vascular medical assessments and advising us not to seek treatment are being tasked with monitoring the results of the procedures they warned us not to have. It is an interesting choice. Does any one else sense a conflict of interest??
