We are doing a news story tonight about the fact that University of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health plan to start a study on CCSVI..
Their study will be a collaboration between neurology, radiology, interventional vascular specialists and physics experts
It looks like the study will have two parts:
1) to see if the treatment works...
2. to develop an MRI protocol that gives an imaging biomarker of the existence of CCSVI in patients with MS, and (ideally) unequivocally identifies the location of the stenosis."
It is a much more aggressive study than we thought ..i.e. if they see stenosis they will treat it...
