Alex on Vacation and Dr. Dake in Italy?

I understand that Alex is on Vacation this week and Dr. Dake is in Italy i believe. I've compiled my medical history. One pager somewhat like a resume.
Also, have a copy of my 2006 one and only MRI on CD.. When I last talked with Alex she said I could just bring it with me. Have been reading here where others are e-mailing their medical historiesto Dr. Dake. Since I was not advised to ...

A hole in the skull (not CCSVI, just interesting)

Again, not strictly CCSVI but somewhat related.

The brain's buffer

As well as delivering oxygen to the brain, cerebral blood flow has another vital role: the circulation and production of cerebrospinal fluid. This clear liquid surrounds the brain, carrying the nutrients that feed it and removing the waste it produces, including the tau and beta-amyloid proteins that have been implicated in the formation of plaques found in the brains of people with Alzheimer's (Cerebrospinal Fluid ...

Thoughts on the spreading of lesions and symptoms in CCSVI

CCSVI is not the only problem in MS, but the immune systems response to exposed CNS matter plays a crucial role in beginning a cascade of inflammation that leads to loss of neurological function.

I have a thought about this. Once the blood brain barrier has been perforated (via reflux, edema, leakage caused by hypoxia) and there's an immune system response against the exposed CNS-matter, this might also affect other areas, and cause new lesions ...

Tysabri "rebound"

Thanks to my brains (Marie Rhodes :lol: ), I have been looking into a rebound effect that is reported in Tysabri. I plan to bring this up to Dr. Dake and right now this is the donkey I'm pinning my non improving tail on. It makes sense and there is a bunch of informatin out there regarding this. This is a quickie article to explain it, but ...

hypoxia | memory & executive function

Correct me if I'm wrong, please, but it sounds like one of the takeaways from the Bologna conference is that the damages of MS may be due to mild-but-sustained Ischemic hypoxia (or "hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy"), caused by screwed up flow dynamics in the brain.

Brain hypoxia is the condition in which there is a decrease in the oxygen supply to the brain even though there is adequate blood flow. If hypoxia lasts for long periods ...

Press Release- A good summary of event in Bologna

This was released to press on the 8th, I received it from the press office and it's up at Fondazione Hilarescere site. Again, I WISH (like all of you) we had copies of the Liberation results that will be published in the Vascular Journal next month...I do not have firm numbers to share, and that is frustrating. It's one thing to make statements, and another to have concrete numbers to back them up. I also ...

Not CCSVI but somewhat related

If you had heart surgery you will probably develop memory and cognitive problems.

Brain scientists and cardiac surgeons at Johns Hopkins have evidence from 227 heart bypass surgery patients that long-term memory losses and cognitive problems they experience are due to the underlying coronary artery disease itself and not ill after-effects from having used a heart-lung machine.

Neurologists on the study team say the results highlight the need for further research into the long-term consequences ...

Treatment in Italy - When?

Besides being Argentinian, I have Italian citizenship (Grazie tante Nonno) so it would be natural for me to go to Italy to get the treatment.

So, does anyone know or imagine or estimate when a treatment will be available there? As far as I know the procedure would be free for Italian citizens (?)


EDIT: Changed the subject to reflect the contents better.
