I invite all to have a look at the abstract of this thesis: http://www.mshackathon.nl/wp-content/up ... ressed.pdf
CCSVI is mentioned on the first page, causing hypoperfusion, low immunity, viral spread and eventually MS.
MS is a complicated multifactorial disease.
More info on the cascade of events can be found in the thesis or on general-discussion-f1/topic15188-750.html
On the question whether CCSVI causes MS, I can be affirmative.
I think it does.
To those who argue the reverse, i.e. that MS causes CCSVI, I would say the following:
I am convinced that CCSVI is an important contributing factor for the development of MS. But it is possibly not the only factor and there are loops where CCSVI results from ... the underlying mechanisms that cause MS. I think in particular of the Varicella Zoster virus.
In fact, I think for myself that has been the case. The right internal jugular vein was truncated in the lower neck (a picture as in text books), most likely a birth defect, genetically passed from my father's side. The left internal jugular vein developed as the dominant system because the right was almost closed from birth onwards. You have to understand how veins grow. Later on then, behind the left ear a stenosis developed which may have been caused by the virus. Its replication got a chance in the nasopharynx because the right side was insufficient or because of an otherwise weakened immunity.
