It is a good, balanced article. Of course the neurologists are cautious. They are right about continued research. But patients who are activists have been the torchbearers. We haven't been cautious... rather we have been bold.

The article is good, it mixes reality, science and hope. It tampers down the irrational exuberence.

Thanks, Marie

Good reality check -- we all know this is going to take time, research, and money. It has really been a short time period that Zamboni's research has been public --- it is quite remarkable that the MS societies are stating they are accepting proposals for funding in this early phase.

I agree with all of this....... We are lucky. If I remember right the big thread was started by Joan last Dec sbout the 16th.

In under one year LOOK at where this is. I am delighted that this is going to be well reviewed.

I wake up every day feeling a sense of trust and hope about where this is going...I do not know the outcome but am glad it is being looked at and smart people are considering how to go forward well.

Dr Haacke calls this a worldwide emergency. That is EXACTLY how I feel, all anyone can ask is a FAIR and SINCERE investigation of this new work and how stenosis relates to MS done immediately because of the fact this type of treatment would be so different vs the old treatment. Lives are in the balance but fortunately this is going forward . Yay!

Now they are cautions, but when everything was first presented in the 80's they just ignored the investigation. I wouldn't call that to be cautious, but to be irresponsible instead.

In the 80's most of them didn't even bothered to critizise the theory. No trial ever appeared to confirm or discard the hypothesis. Probably the difference now is only internet and the patient-activists.

frodo,

I so agree with you and Marie, if it wasn't for Joan looking for answers for Jeff, I don't think CCSVI and Dr Z's research would be where it is today. It is like a Tidal wave now, and I don't believe the forces that would like to stop it can! This isn’t the 80’s and your statement “Probably the difference now is only internet and the patient-activists.” is spot on!! WE will not let it be swept under the carpet, it’s too compelling and offers too much hope! Dr Haacke calls this a worldwide emergency, and I agree!
