What has happened to Dom/Twisted Helix?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

hey Dom...
I'm copying and moving your post down to CCSVI-ville, so folks won't miss it and they can discuss your research on hypoxia and iron deposition...very interesting, given these two things are seen in MS brains with the new SWI and BOLD mri technology. And it appears they are connected! The neuroprotective affect of iron chelators is also very interesting.

Dr. Zamboni has tested the levels of hemosiderin (a protein that contains iron) in urine- a recognized sign of venous disease- and found it was very high in MSers during relapse.

You were the first to post Dr. Zamboni's research (dignan still blames you!)-and my family and I owe you a debt of gratitude. Just want to give you props, my dear.

Here's the thread from 2007, folks....twisted helix introduced us to Zamboni-

Husband dx RRMS 3/07

I can't let too much time go by without selfishly stalking Dom. I sent him an email last week, and he kindly replied. He is still creating music and has been enjoying the snowfall this winter. He sends his love to all who know him.
