Fox found none of this just a bunch of intraluminal and truncular defects in the ms patients.All the MS patients. So 2012 is the year that we wait to see if Fox's numbers will hold up in a larger study, but right now there is a clarity: Much of the conflict in the medical community has been over definitions, but the message is clear:If you have MS you have problems in your veins.These may not show up on a regular ultrasound or mri because they are problems inside the vein. We're just waiting for more replication now but it's looking like fact.
That's a big story.
A variety of vein abnormalities were identified. The incidence of vein wall stenoses was similar in MS and controls: eight stenoses in 4 of 7 MS patients and five in 3 of 6 controls. Marked valvular and other intraluminal abnormalities with potential hemodynamic consequences were identified in 5 of 7 MS patients (7 abnormalities) and in 1 of 6 controls (1 abnormality).
