A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.

MS and vascular problems associated

Of course, to have two conditions associated does not imply causality, but I think the association between MS and vascular problems cannot be discussed anymore.

Maybe it is possible to protect the BBB

This is a recently published article about the BBB breakdown. It is still too early to know whether it is important, but I think it is worthy to have it around here.

Interleukin-34 Restores Blood-Brain Barrier Integrity by Upregulating Tight Junction Proteins in Endothelial Cells.

Abstract
Interleukin-34 (IL-34) is a newly discovered cytokine as an additional ligand for colony stimulating factor-1 receptor (CSF1R), and its functions are expected ...

Looking Dr. Marian Simka's information

I have been diagnosed with MS for 30 years but it wasn't until 10 years ago I started having walking difficulties. After trying what pharmaceuticals have to offer, I am medication free and I strongly believe and can see a connection with Dr. Zamboni and Dr. Marian Simka with my symptoms. Does anyone know how to contact any of them? --Betsy

Propose for TED talk

Folks,

I am sure many of you are aware of TED talk. If some of you have not, I do suggest you listening to some of the topics on Biology, Health, Brain etc. The insight TED provides is just incredible. The other day, I was listening to this speaker who was explaining why sleep is essential (http://www.ted.com/talks/jeff_iliff_one ... ht_s_sleep) and some of the findings were simply an eye opener ...

CCSVI: How RRMS becomes SPMS

The French Neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, practicing at the Parisian la Pitié-Salpetrière hospital, first described Multiple Sclerosis (Sclérose en Plaques) in 1868. Among other things, he defined MS as a “rigidity disorder”. He thus set the tone in the Neurology profession of an unfortunate prejudice towards MS patients by claiming their “rigidity” symptoms were psychological in origin - signs of neurotic (usually female) hysteria. I now believe it is just this rigidity which is at the ...

Sleep restriction impairs blood-brain barrier function

J Neurosci. 2014 Oct 29;34(44):14697-706. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.2111-14.2014.

Sleep restriction impairs blood-brain barrier function.

Abstract
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a large regulatory and exchange interface between the brain and peripheral circulation. We propose that changes of the BBB contribute to many pathophysiological processes in the brain of subjects with chronic sleep restriction (CSR). To achieve CSR that mimics a common pattern of ...

Blood flow is worse in people with MS (Oct 2014 research)

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4216015/
Results

85 RR-MS, 83 PP-MS and 82 healthy controls were included. ΔCVF was negative in 45/85 (52.9%) RR-MS, 63/83 (75.9%) PP-MS (p = 0.01) and 11/82 (13.4%) controls (p<0.001), while MFVs on both MCAs in sitting position were significantly reduced in RR-MS and PP-MS patients than in control, particularly in EDSS≥5 subgroup (respectively, 42/50, 84% vs. 66/131, 50.3%, p<0.01 and 48.3±2 cm/s vs. 54.6±3 cm/s, p = 0.01). ...

CCSVI Treatment for Primary Progressive MS?
