When contemplating the possible association
between venous obstruction, blood-brain barrier
leakage, myelin destruction and immune
mechanisms responsible for the initiation of
MS, it is interesting to note that the retinal
nerve fibres are not myelinated in 99% of the
We've discussed this before, but it is worth rereading, rethinking, and knowing. I even bolded it, it's that good. It's a blow to the autoimmune theory, since the retinal nerve fibres are being damaged in MS and they do not have myelin, so it cannot be an autoimmune attack against myelin that isn't there. But it looks exactly like what would be expected in CCSVI theory, as a consequence of venous congestion.
