It must be the study by Fiona Evanne Costello.

Dr. Fiona Costello, Hotchkiss Brain Institute, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta: examining a cross-section of people with MS compared to other neurological diseases and healthy volunteers. The team is seeking linkages between vein abnormalities and different aspects of MS activity and tissue damage to gain insight into the significance of differences in vein drainage and their implications for the future treatment of MS.

To learn more on study recruitment at the Calgary site please call 403 944-2513

This is one of the NMSS-funded studies that is diagnostic only, no treatment?

For a moment there I was excited!

That gang at F.H. is just sadly a group that have ms pharma
controlling them. Just an extension of Dr Detz. No treatment arm
as we requested. That group shutdown the I.R.'s that wanted to
do some real interventions. Absolutely frightful.

Dr. Metz is my neuro-- is this study all big pharma? or is it actually doing some good? I can't quite figure out where Metz stands?

Metz is Big Pharma personified. She personally takes home hundreds of thousands of dollars every year of payolla related to the clinical trials she runs.
Notably she trashed CCSVI in an awful presentation in February in which she indicated that Dr Dake is a killer and Avis Favaro is a liar. She was also the one who led the charge to deny any testing for CCSVI at any clinic in Calgary.
Anyone seeing her might want to find a better doctor.

Your too kind. Dr D is even worse. He is the head of the Medical Advisory Committee for the MS Society, Head of the EndMS campaign and wonder of wonders somehow gives himself the largest grants. Millions and I mean
millions. Just staggering. I hope alot more of this comes to lite.

It is nothing short of a cartel.

To all
