Maybe there's something there of use to you?

Request a summarized explanation of stent procedure please


I see there have been a lot of posts recently about using Stents to open up apparent blockage that may cause the damaging disease known as Multiple Sclerosis. It has been confusing reading these posts. And, I am having a hard time trying to discern personal opinions and actual objective thought.

I am wondering if someone in the "know" to be so kind to give a brief overview of the theory of this procedure ...

relapsing/relapsing & collateral vein formation

I know we think that the cyclical nature of early MS is due to the plasticity of the brain alone - recovering and finding new pathways to work around the lesions -

- but is it possible that an occlusion of the veins causes relapse, and the subsequent formation of collateral veins around the blockage permits a return to a more normal state?

Is an MRV or CT really enough?

It really is a question. The wonderful Dr Dake has been performing MRV's (as well as dopplers and doing some poking about during the operation), however, reading Zamboni's papers, I read things that in my simple mind, may or may not show up on an MRV or a non-specific CT scan (by that I mean with no catheter injecting dye). I do not know.

From the paper presented at the Charing Cross conference:

What is it with the vision. Please tell me something I am not expecting to hear...

Then it gets better. Now, I always need cheater glasses to see the computer screen, much less read anything. I hate this sh!t..... ...

Change in lymphocyte gene expression induced by Campath-1H

Change in lymphocyte gene expression induced by Campath-1H treatment of multiple sclerosis
J.A. Somerfield, J.L. Jones, V.H. Robertson, D.A.S. Compston, A.J. Coles (Cambridge, UK)

Objectives: Campath-1H, a humanised monoclonal antibody to CD52, causes profound lymphopenia. It significantly reduces the relapse rate of multiple sclerosis and, intriguingly, results in reduced EDSS scores at 36months. This study aims to identify changes in peripheral lymphocyte gene expression associated with this improvement in disability after Campath-1H treatment.
Methods: Blood ...
