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 ...

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 ...

Leukoaraiosis and MS lesions appear in the same places

From the new article: ... ain.awv398

They explain that in the aging patients, damage is produced not only by the MS underlying condition, but also by the normal leukoaraiosis process
"Thus, periventricular white matter damage in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis is not only due to axonal transection in plaques, but also to age-related injury"

They also say that both kind of lesions are similar:

"It is currently ...
