1. The root cause: A Permeable blood-brain barrier (BBB) and transmission of provocative
substances, antibodies and leucocytes into the brain. This may be caused by chronic cerebrospinal vascular insufficiency (CCSVI, and associated microclotting due to stagnant cerebrovenous blood flow), latent infections that cause a Th1-dominated immune response and release
of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) which can alter the BBB, or a general pro-inflammatory state created due to dietary factors.
They list CCSVI as among the possible root causes of MS.
If we have microclotting, that could explain the reduction in microvessels in the parenchyma of the brain, as seen in Dr. Zivadinov's research. http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2377/11/128
If everything listed is a possible root cause of MS, it might be especially not good to have all of the listed conditions: CCSVI, microclotting, latent infections such as EBV, and proinflammatory state due to dietary (or perhaps genetic, but this is not listed) factors.
Venoplasty could help the CCSVI
Could a daily baby aspirin help prevent the microclotting?
EBV vaccine in development could help eradicate EBV even in already-infected individuals if it draws EBV out of latency to kill it
Pro-inflammatory state could be improved by disease-modifying drugs and/or dietary changes
Thanks for the link, I'd seen this one discussed on Facebook yesterday but hadn't had a chance to read it.
