Because the tests and works done by Haacke et al are currently not accepted by the majority of neurologists, so this title will always look more impressive when refered to. Its like five yearolds claiming who is the best or maybe trying to get published in medical journals is heading in the same directions as "News" stries (Headline, Headline, Headline!)cheerleader wrote:Why are they calling this new?
CCSVI should take it like a Hollywood Starlet, 'There's no such thing as bad publicity' Hopefully others will start to question how the iron got there if its not "in the blood". Seems obvious what brought it there, and then there is a need to explain why it stayed / got deposited... the world turns, but slowly.cheerleader wrote:Why does Alberta feel the need to have their neuroimmunology department come out with this study and specifically state "This has nothing to do with CCSVI?" They are protesting and affirming beyond normal research measures.
It is curious, and quite odd.
Oct. 22, 2003 -- Iron deposits deep in the brain may cause multiple sclerosis, new imaging studies suggest.
The findings come from studies of computer-assisted brain scans using a specialized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device. University at Buffalo, N.Y., researchers Rohit Bakshi, MD, and colleagues are the first to use this technique to study multiple sclerosis. Bakshi reported the findings at this week's annual meeting of the American Neurological Association in San Francisco.
Multiple sclerosis has been considered a disease of the white matter in the brain and spinal cord -- the neural pathways that allow areas of gray matter to communicate with one another. But the new findings link iron deposits in the gray matter to movement and thinking impairments in multiple sclerosis.
"If we're going to treat this disease, we have to know where the damage is," Bakshi says in a news release. "Traditionally, we thought MS was strictly a white-matter disease. ... We were able to visualize gray matter structures deep in the brain of MS patients and found some to be atrophied."
