Plasma exchange and CCSVI?

Postby Ernst » Sun Dec 27, 2009 7:06 am

Blood structure has been on my mind (especially viscosity) and found this news article:

Research Shows Plasma Exchange Helps Multiple Sclerosis Patients

So changing MS-patients plasma can have very good treatment effects to patients who dont get help from main MS medicine. I don't know if this plasma-thing have been discussed here.. but my question is: do you see any connections to CCSVI? What do you think?

Hi.

Replacing plasma leads to alteration of many properties of the blood, both mechanical and chemical. In addition, it is a temporary removal of all antibodies, inducing a good shock to the immune system, thus reducing any kind of inflammation.

In my opinion (which I can't support with any arguments, though), removing substances from the blood could result in reversal of diffusion, emptying the nervous system from useless and toxic substances.
