Hi Seeva--
This was a blog post I wrote this week about a meeting I attended five years ago in Bologna, where Dr. Zivadinov stood before a room full of reseaqrchers and stated that his work at BNAC had confirmed Dr. Zamboni's results 100%. He has since backed away from that statement.
In my blog post, I present my notes from that meeting, and ask why this research has been abandoned by neurologists and MS specialists.

Something my Dad told me when I was a young man: he learned it in the Army "Get it in writing." People say all kinds of stuff. If they will sign their name to it, it's more likely to mean something.

In 1973 most of the Army's written records from World Wars 1 and 2, Korea, and Vietnam were moved to storage in St. Louis. The building they were housed in burnt to the ground.

Agreed, 1eye. Which is why I later included the link to Dr. Zivadinov's published research after his quote, which showed the 100% corroboration.

He stated that the Journal of Vascular Surgery will soon be publishing the open label EVT intervention results of Zamboni, and that the current study at Jacobs, which will be completed in October ‘09 with the original 8 patients from America- has confirmed Dr. Zamboni’s results 100%. Dr. Zivadinov said that Jacobs is now recruiting and training new centers to test, diagnose and treat CCSVI in America.

Sixteen patients with MS, who had been the subjects in the chronic venous insufficiency in MS study (CVIMS),7, 9, 10, 18 were asked to participate. The CVIMS was a pilot collaborative study between the University of Buffalo and the Universities of Ferrara and Bologna, Italy that involved patients with relapsing–remitting MS19 and age- and sex-matched healthy controls. All the patients with MS fulfilled the duplex ultrasound CCSVI venous haemodynamic (VH) criteria. The duplex prevalence of CCSVI in MS was 100%, whereas, in eight normal subjects used as controls in the CVIMS studies, the prevalence was 0%.7, 9 Of the 16 patients, 15 met the inclusion/exclusion criteria and agreed to participate (eight from Italy and seven from Buffalo).

Results:
No adverse events occurred. At 1 year, there was a restenosis rate of 27%. Overall, PTA was followed by a significant improvement in functional score compared with baseline (p<0.02). The annualised relapse rate was 0.12% in the ITG compared with 0.66% in the DTG (p = NS). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) blindly demonstrates a trend for fewer T2 lesions in the ITG (p = 0.081), corresponding to a 10% decrease in the ITG compared with a 23% increase in the DTG over the first 6 months of the study.

Conclusions:
This study further confirms the safety of PTA treatment in patients with CCSVI associated with MS. The results, despite the significant rate of restenosis, are encouraging and warrant a larger multicentre double-blinded, randomised study.

Difficult as it is for most people to believe that such cynical ruthless grasping for dollars can supersede the needs of sick people, their loved ones and caregivers alike, I think we will see not less but more of this in the future. What we have seen in the last five years is not an effort to find out truth at all. What we have seen is deliberate obfuscation, foot-dragging, politicizing, and polarization for one purpose only: to delay the day when CCSVI treatments start reducing the drug vendors' share of the proceeds of illness. As far as drug manufacturers are concerned, the fight is not over until no-one believes they have anything to sell. As P.T. Barnum put it, there's one born every minute.

The multinational public doesn't even yet know it is at war. They are getting older and sicker all the time. They had best figure it out soon.
