I would think, given this, at least some of the control subjects should have venous stenoses. Maybe in a larger sample size, such as the Buffalo study, this will be true.
patientx... There was one TIMS member with MS who took her daughter with her when she went to Stanford for the procedure with Dr Dake. He decided to scan the daughter too, and lo and behold the daughter had stenosis and lesions too !!!!
There was also some scuttlebutt posted on this board from someone who participated in the Buffalo study that two of the "controls" had lesions and stenosis.
I don't think we get MS when we are diagnosed, but we HAVE MS and then are diagnosed. So I think people with MS-like lesions on autopsy really did have MS ?? I guess it's unclear since they don't fit the Mc Donald criteria.
