This article does not come from the CCSVI world, but from mainstream neurology research. Of course, association does not imply causality, but just association is very interesting.
Hypoperfusion of the thalamus is associated with disability in relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27865557
BACKGROUND: While gray matter (GM) perfusion abnormalities have been evidenced in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients ...
CONCLUSION: In relapsing remitting MS, perfusion abnormalities in thalamic regions contribute to disability. These findings suggest that functional impairments of thalami, representing a major brain hub, may disturb various cerebral functions even before structural damage.
