Hi Anonymoose! Hope you are well. Rituxan ebv/b cell bombing (intravenous and intrathecal)? Interesting & I hope effective!
Yeah, the iron diapedesis into the brain is but one theory of what the neurological sequellae are of the CCSVI blockages. Dr. Zamboni's paper about the Big Idea was early work and I think more of the picture has been put together since then and there is still much to be done. It's also possible for iron to be both a good and bad guy, so to speak, to be doing harm and benefit at the same time.
I would want to be treated for an iron deficiency, if I acquired one. Iron is necessary for red blood cells and red blood cells are necessary for oxygen and oxygen is necessary for neurons.
