From the article:
My husband never responded to immune modulating drugs, does that mean he does not have MS? In fact a lot of people don't respond to those drugs...if they did, we wouldn't be looking for a different solution.Dr Alasdair Coles, an academic neurologist at Cambridge University, says: 'We know MS is an auto-immune disease because if you block the immune response with drugs, people get better.'
At the end of the article, it lumps a few different ideas together, as though they were wrong or wacky...they include Vitamin d playing a role, which is showing to be correct and not wacky at all, it's just we don't bother taking it, until it is too late.

loved the plunger pic....ugh.
I was supposed to get a copy of that to "proof" before it ran, and nada. I think Jeff and I are done with "press." Too much misinformation. We're just going to deal with doctors and researchers behind the scenes.
let's let this thread die a natural death in the morass of CCSVI misinformation.....
dx dual jugular vein stenosis (CCSVI) 4/09
Are neuros born with some gene deficit?Dr Alasdair Coles, an academic neurologist at Cambridge University, says: 'We know MS is an auto-immune disease because if you block the immune response with drugs, people get better.'
How difficult is it to understand that erratic immune response could also be triggered by accumulation toxins in brain which immune system is religiously trying to clean up.
I am not saying that CCSVI is the definite answer but how difficult it is to add vein unblocking as one of the treatment methods.
Can you imagine what it would be like for him, finding out that it was all crap?
I have had campath as well and i surely wouldn't like to do it again.
I must say though that dr Coles is a pretty decent guy, and he is helping however he can. And i am sure that he knows a great deal for ms. Having that said, i hope he is wrong ;)
Before this topic dies its natural death, I wish to renew my sentiments of admiration for the formidable work you put into the support of the cause. You are a true inspiration for all of us.
Somebody said "bad publicity is better than no publicity": the Daily Mail article, even with its bits of misinformation, is publicity for CCSVI.
