Italian team studies Chiropractic care for MS CCSVI

Hello Dr. Flanagan:

Hugo Macia (his blog - http://www.secretosdelaesclerosismultip ... pot.com.es.)
has just sent me this PubMed study which implies that Neurologists are finally considering the "mechanical" aspect of CCSVI. The Italians are apparently the most interested because one of their own (Dr. Zamboni) proposed the CCSVI theory for MS. How would you undertake, improve on, such a study?

see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26228993/.

Preliminary results ...

Dr. Haacke: int'l imaging research shows CCSVI in Parkinsons

https://www.facebook.com/CCSVI-Alliance ... 427429118/
Dr Mark Haacke spoke briefly about international imaging research (of which he is a principal investigator) shows CCSVI in Parkinson's. He will be sharing the study in his presentations.

Well that is interesting! More info please! :)

More about pattern III

Pattern III in MS lesions is a specific kind of demyelination that looks hypoxic, and therefore it could be more related than others to CCSVI. Pattern III is known as "distal oligodendrogliopathy" because oligodendrocytes die in that specific way.

A previous text (available at http://www.ajnr.org/content/27/5/954.full) used to say that lesions are similar to the early stages of WM ischemia and may therefore reflect hypoxic WM damage. A pathologic process ...

venous congestion in MRI hypotense black holes

Not sure if this applies to MS, but just in case ...

“Venous congestion” as a cause of subcortical white matter T2 hypointensity on magnetic resonance images

http://www.annalsofian.org/preprintarti ... 978;type=0

Subcortical T2 hypointensity is an uncommon finding seen in very limited conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Sturge-Weber syndrome, and meningitis. Some of the conditions such as moyamoya disease, severe ischemic-anoxic insults, early cortical ischemia, and infarcts are of “arterial ...

Venous anatomy and MS Lesions study abstract

I noticed a link to this study abstract on Dr. Zamboni's twitter page, with the introductory statement:
Advanced MR reveals VEINS even in atypical #MultipleSclerosis plaques

CCSVI: Getting the Word Out

CCSVI – Getting the Word Out

Cheerleader has just posted an excellent article on her site Joan Beal “MS: The Vascular Connection” titled “Turf War”. Yes, of course the Neurology lobby has had the power to undermine (if not outright destroy) work on CCSVI in the USA, the Vascular component in MS, even though Science continues to demonstrate its validity. We aren’t really talking Science here but power, vested interests, social hierarchy, money. The entire ...

BIG THING!!! ANOCTAMIN-2 AND ENDOTHELIAL CELLS !!!

Anoctamin-2 is a protein expressed in muscle cells and venous endotelium. You can read about it here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcium-a ... de_channel (Anoctamin)

And why do I post this? Because of this new article:

http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2016/ ... 3113.short

The authors have screened plasma samples from patients with MS looking for autoimmune cells and they have found some of them, but not against the CNS. They have ...

ABSTRACT

This review summarises current knowledge on the lymphatic system of the brain.

It has long been believed that the central nervous system is characterised by the lack of a lymphatic system and that the role of the lymphatic system is played by cerebrospinal fluid.

Recently, research has shown that not only is the brain equipped with its ...
