Lesions and SWI

Many disease modifying treatments use the reduction of lesions as shown on MRI as proof a treatment is "working" in MS. This has baffled me, since we know that the number of lesions does not correlate to level of disease progression. Someone like Jeff or Mel can have 20 brain lesions and function quite well. Someone else can have one or two lesions and be wheelchair-bound. Also, at a certain point, lesion progression stops when ...

What do you think about Diosmin and CCSVI? Can it have any positive effects? In US it is sold as a supplement and in Europe on prescription (Detralex).

Not MSer, but wondering...

Hi, there,

My brother has RR MS. I have many symptoms (the usual: tingling, numbness, loss of strength and balance, cognitive issues) but I don't show any lesions. He has been diagnosed with celiac disease (as has 1/2 of our family) and I surely have it but stopped eating gluten so long ago and am so sensitive to it I can't get the blood test to confirm if I have the antibodies.

Since the neuro ...

Spreading the news

I belong to the group of people who believed that prof. Zamboni's original idea of the correlation between CCSVI and MS was right, and my belief has grown even stronger reading his subsequent publications and after the congress in Bologna.

How many reasons can you say, that CCSVI leads to MS? I have some idea about the CCSVI to MS process, but some ...
