CCSVI treatment unethical, even in trials - commentary

Invasive treatment of CCSVI is unethical, even in clinical trials, because of “egregious” methodological problems with the single study that supports it, experts argue.

Recent independent studies “not only cast doubt on whether CCSVI is the cause of MS, they call into question whether CCSVI exists at all”, according to a critical analysis published in the Archives of Neurology.

The greatest problem with the results of the controversial study by Pablo Zamboni and colleagues was the apparent confounding of CCSVI treatment with the initiation of disease-modifying therapy, the authors said.... Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... ageid/2944

Hi!

I think the discovery that the Italian (cant spell his name) gentleman made of the narrowing of blood passage through the neck is fantastic, but needs further investigation into why this happens and conclusive proof has to be established.

My money is on the Atlas theory, but hey! praps thats just me.

But the critical analysis showed there was very good reason to think most of these patients (67%) began disease modifying treatment at the start of the treatment trial.

In addition, there was no control group and therefore no blinding of the neurologists or accounting for the placebo effect


So now the story is, any results are due to DMDs. Please.

DMDs and variants and placebos, oh my! DMDs and variants and placebos, oh, my!

Dr. Paulo Zamboni has endured many attempted crucifixions. He will smile through this one too.

There is lots of other evidence. Why do they always circle back to Dr. Zamboni? He is not some crackpot. Millions have seen and heard him and read his work and a large fraction agree on its plausibility, coherence, and analogy. There are so many examples of them it is not even funny.

They pretend to demand just blindness. There are none so blind as those who blindly deny sight.
