MrSuccess highly doubts that the word "quackery" was uttered by the people behind this study.
In fact .... MrSuccess is delighted to discover that such a study was undertaken.
In other words ........ MISSION ACCOMPLISHED !
Now let's go back in time. From the beginning. The MS world was all excited about a small 65 pwMS
study conducted by Professor Zamboni. This study examined the possible link between narrowed or
blocked neck veins , from the brain to the heart.
Dr.Zamboni and his team carefully examined these 65 people. NO STENTS WERE PLACED
Dr. Zamboni and his team noticed many of his patients veins narrowed again. So he tried a second
time. Changes were noted. But no cures , as was published in other places.
Dr. Zamboni reasoned that there MIGHT be a connection between CCSVI and MS.
Dr. Zamboni published his findings , and asked his peers to try to replicate the findings of his CCSVI study. With some precautions . Such as ..... NO STENTS . Stent migration was a serious risk.
Dr.Zamboni also stressed all future CCSVI studies be done in a Clinical setting only.NOT for PROFIT.
All of Dr.Zamboni's cautions were ignored. Terrible things happened. The science was ground to a halt.
Worst of all ..... were the outlandish claims of this being a miracle ms cure. NOT by Zamboni , but
by other well meaning but naive people. Again , the science of CCSVI suffered and slowed.
Now .... to the utter delight of MrSuccess ..... Dr.Zamboni's peers have indeed meet his challenge
and entertained the CCSVI curiosity and conducted a CLINICAL study . No costs to pwMS. No dangerous stents placed. And published their findings . ALL AS Dr.Zamboni wished for , years ago.
Again I say : MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
It would be of extreme interest to MrSuccess to see both the UBC study and Dr.Zamboni's compared side-by-side. They may be exact in nature. Maybe not.
Either way ...... and regardless of published outcomes ...... this is a good thing for CCSVI.
There is not a chance in hell ...... given the time and money spent by the UBC study , that it was considered a "quackery" investigation. These people know in their hearts .... that this thing called CCSVI ...... might be of substance.
Once again ......... MrSuccess stands by Dr.Zamboni , and his great discovery of CCSVI.
