A few questions, but I'll go slowly.

The nurses in my office once mentioned that African Americans tend to be more affected by MS than caucasions. How would CCSVI explain why certain groups, such as males or African Americans , tend to be more quickly/negatively affected by MS? Any ideas?

Retinal vein occlusion.

Doesn't this sound like ON?

It seems to fit with the CCSVI.

I was looking to see which vein led up to the eyes and was only mildly surprised to see a diagram of the jugular vein leading you right on up

probably not new news?

I'm sure I may be the last to have seen this, but at least it is new for me on the Opexa site. Judging by the last paragraph they seem determined to get this to phase 3. I'm not sure how that affects us.

lhermitte's sign confusion..?

If one were to experience the lhermitte's sign, when they put their head to their chest does it take a few seconds and then you can start feeling it to set in and just becomes more and more intense while the head is to the chest, or, is it just when the head is put down to the chest (OR what ever else sets off the lhermitte's sign) is it just a quick zap like ...

I was 210 yesterday (Saturday) and 110 today. Yest's neuts were 168. Didn't stay long enough for today's results (I'll get them tomorrow). Today was a "wasted" trip to IPOP in my opinion and the nurse's, too.

Immune system activation in CCSVI

Marie is on the road, and NHE brought up some important points regarding the immune system, autoimmunity in MS, and how this may fit in the model of CCSVI. Here are NHE's thoughts...
http://www.thisisms.com/ftopicp-57620.html#57620

I am of the opinion that the immune activation is secondary to venous insufficiency , that it is a response, and the "autoimmune" reaction of MS will be halted once venous insufficiency is corrected. It ...
