Ablation is destruction of the immune system to allow it to regrow, hopefully without any of it's wrong targeting. This wrong targeting comes about because of CCSVI, among other
Ablation is also used in cancer therapy, and in bone marrow transplants, to prevent rejection. It can include radiation, chemo, and monoclonal antibodies.
My brother had the bone marrow transplant, and is mostly doing well. Once you have a new immune system you are vulnerable to childhood diseases like mumps again. He had a bad case of shingles and may lose some facial nerves.
I don't believe in a simple cause with a simple risk-free "cure", and I don't think Dr. Freedman does either. I think maybe "MS" can be caused by CCSVI, and initially has complete or almost-complete remissions due to new collateral veins, which are harder to come by in some people.
Time will bring worsening vein problems. The immune system is compromised by bad stuff building up, causing BBB permeability to immune system components, too much ET1, yada yada.
Only people who don't believe they have already solved it, or that it has a solution at all, are interested in the "MS' puzzle.
I'd be happy with an approximation. I don't qualify for an 'immune reset' as I am over 50, unless that has changed. I think ablation is still more risky than a PTA on my veins, though I
am sure it is less aggressive now.
Don't believe claims of an exclusive treatment.
Where does CSF drainage come into it? It uses the jugulars.
