2 letters to editor re: Zamboni's article in JNNP

One is from Steven Brenner, neurologist in St. Louis MO and the other is from Marian Simka, specialist in angiology in Poland. Isn't someone on this site seeing her?

At any rate, Brenner I can understand but I can't make heads or tails as to what Simka is saying here. Easy to understand medical lingo, anyone??! Maybe these letters are already posted on the sticky above?--I didn't see ...

Rationale and preliminary results ...... Doc to text

The preliminary results paper by Zamboni is a scanned document, and therefore cannot be searched through or easily quoted, so I recently ran the pages into an on-line OCR site, and got the following. I thought others might find it of some use.

NB: I have not proof read the pages, they are literally full of mistakes.

Skepticism or ignorance?

Skepticism is certainly useful, especially in the clinical field, because it avoids unjustified enthusiasm for unproven theories.
Skeptics about the endovascular treatment of MS should probably bother to read the papers published by prof. Zamboni and his team. It seems to me an unlikely coincidence that they found a defective venous drainage from the brain, due to congenital anomalies of the jugular and/or the azygos veins, in 100% of the patients with proven MS. No ...

More Questions on Palo Alto/San Jose

I completely stink at searching for anything on this site. So I need some help.

It has been discussed about ways to get from the San Jose airport to Palo Alto and vice-versa

This I found out:

1)Rental Car $$ can't afford this - husband wants to eat....
2)Taxi is about $50 each way -again this could be food money
3)Sheraton does NOT have a shuttle to and from the Airport

Are there other shuttles ...

Lisinopril blood pressure treatment

I was wondering what you people think about the recent study that was all over news using Lisinopril (a standard blood pressure medication with few side effects) to very effectively treat MS-like disease in rodents, in the context of this thread?

(see e.g. ... 4420090817)

In particular I wonder if the blood-pressure lowering property would be an additional benefit to the shift Lisinopril apparently induces in the T ...

Near 2 month update, follow up, spreading the word.

So we're nearly two months out.

In the last week Mel's slipped back a bit.

Nothing major and no MS type symptoms but the initial super energy has gone.

This has coincided with a weird feeling in her neck/jaw on the left side.

Again, she is still doing great but just a general feeling of tiredness is coming back a bit. However this has coincided with 12 hour work days, lots of stress and she's ...

Stent Questions

A couple of stent question to quell my curiosity.
1. What did Zamboni mean by the following.
However, no attempt at a stenting procedure was made in the absence of a dedicated device capable of preventing migration. This device would fit the particular morphology of the intemal jugular vein, similar to a upside down milk bottle, and, finally avoid protrusion into the brachiocephalic trunk.

2. Where in relation to the stents Dr Dake is inserting, ...
