Unexpected major role for venous stenting in deep reflux

This research is not about CCSVI in the CNS, but I thought it was interesting for some of the conclusions which were reached and especially because there has been discussion on the forum about the patency of stents and because of the results shown - quality of life improved significantly.

Their study will be a collaboration between neurology, radiology, interventional vascular specialists and physics experts

It looks like the study will have two parts:
1) to see if the treatment works...
2. to develop an MRI protocol that gives an imaging biomarker of the existence of CCSVI in patients ...

UBC announces major CCSVI study!

Hi everyone,

I just watched a news broadcast where UBC MS clinic announced a $500,000, 100 patient study beginning in 2 months to test and treat CCSVI. They are not accepting patients yet pending ethics approval. Looks like a multidisciplinary study involving vascular and radiology experts.

The news clip may be available online shortly -- I will re-post.

That's my doc! (Traboulsee)

Excellent news from UBC

It has just been announced that UBC will be testing 100 MS patients with Doppler ultrasound. If Dr. Zamboni’s theory is correct, they are going to be treating patients right here in Vancouver, BC. The studies are going to start in as soon as two months.

Zamboni papers

Does anyone know if Zamboni's paper about angioplasty treatment from earlier in the year at the Charing Cross Symposium and the paper just released are referring to the same study group? I was under the impression that the paper from Charing Cross was a prelude to the one in the Journal of Vascular Surgery. But, going back and reading both papers again, I've noticed some inconsistencies.

Please sign this petition for CCSVI in the USA!!

This is to get more coverage of Dr. Zamboni's findings and more studies than just the one in Buffalo. I have seen no media coverage of this in the USA other than a small local story out of New York.

They talked about the study they were going to be doing and not one mention of Dr. Zamboni.
