We have an e-mail/call in/letter writing campaign going on over on the Facebook page today. Click the blue CCSVI letters on my signature to get there.
Here is the email I sent earlier....trying to play nice to see if I can get any kind of response....
Hi Dr Compston,
First let me say as a caregiver for my wife who at the age of 34 can no longer walk without assistance due to MS I greatly appreciate the work you’ve done in your career to help advance the research and medical treatment of MS. After hearing of your recent dismissal of Dr Zamboni’s theory of CCSVI and am writing you for evidence supporting this dismissal, and to clarify if I have misunderstood your stance based on what I’ve read.
Other than the fact that Dr Zamboni’s study was very small and perhaps had some controls issues in regards to consistency, is there anything regarding the science of CCSVI that you know which would definitely disprove the theory? Do you think more testing needs to be done to look into this new avenue of possibility? Basically, I respect your opinion and am curious to hear directly from you what you think instead of the media which I know can be very twisted in the way they report things.
Thanks for your help and clarification!
