Spur of the moment, I asked her if she'd be interested in being in the study and she said she would, so I just emailed Dr Guttman to see if there is anything worthwhile for the study my wife can do in this next week. I'm sure it's all too short of notice, but we'll see.
CCSVI seems to be present 100% of the time in MS and 0% of the time in healthy controls
I got an email from Dr Weinstock-Guttman this morning, which I thought was impressive for a Sunday morning, and she hinted that we might be able to work something out on short notice and that we'll (probably my wife) will be hearing from Cheryle soon.
Despite the fact that CCSVI isn't the "cause" of MS

Are you going to give him reasons he can't be Christ, then when he gives you a 100 papers showing direct correlations between Christ and this person you see before you, you will still tell him there is still no reason to believe it is him?
Bob there are times when I don't get you. The level of hope you quell under your thumb drives me nuts. Does your wife find inspiration and hope in your "matter of fact, this is how it is" views?
Just because the Tovaxin bubble burst please don't wreck peoples hope over here Bob. It's a breath of fresh air in this topic to hear such good things. Notice, some people stopped posting in the Revimmune forum because the naysayers were making them feel bad. Needles to say they are doing much better now but they don't want to report anything because it will just be thrown back at them why it can't be permanent. I really don't want that to happen here because I care a great deal about how these folks are doing.

One possibility is that there could be a phase III style study where there are 300 MS patients treated for cerebrospinal stenoses and 300 MS patients also with stenoses but not treated and then follow their disease course over a period of years. However, even then if it turns out that the MS patients treated for cerebrospinal stenoses are significantly better off then those that were untreated, we will still not know if cerebrospinal stenosis is THE cause of MS. All we would likely know is that alleviating CCSVI that occurs concurrently with MS is beneficial
