I've received an email from ms-mri where I reg last week.
Body of the email is:
Many sites are in the process of getting the approval from the institutional review board (IRB) also known as an independent ethics committee (IEC) or ethical review board (ERB) is a committee that has been formally designated to approve, monitor, and review biomedical and behavioral research involving humans with the aim to protect the rights and welfare of the research subjects. The approval to study MS patients for the CCSVI and SWI connection has not been completed yet. Please check into the website at www.ms-mri.com after Christmas and we will post the status of our proposal. We cannot solicit patients for research until such approvals are obtained. Please do not send us any data at this time. It takes a special set of MR sequences to investigate the vessels in the head and neck. It is important to realize that there is a lot work to be done to test Zamboni’s hypothesis and that if we do it carefully it will benefit everyone far more than rushing into it unprepared. Finally, please be patient as the scientific approach must take its course for the benefit and protection of all concerned.
Therefore I think that suspension or ban or whatever else is just hearsay. All entities are just jammed with requests.
Hope this help, cheers,
