Re: internet racing ahead of the scientific evidence

Internet is a medium of collecting information. IMHO, it's the largest medium of its kind. Isn't it expected for somebody that keeps going downhill following his/her neurologist's advice to seek more information? Where would somebody look if not the Internet? @1eye: No, interferon has never been pr...

Re: internet racing ahead of the scientific evidence

Internet evidence will not stick without strong scientific evidence to eventually back it up. Although some researchers/people will never back down from their beliefs even in the face of a mountain of evidence refuting their position due to their egos, the majority of people will see it for what it ...

Stem-cell pioneer takes aim at M.S.

It looks like we've been able to do it in a dish. We've grown spinal cord cells in a dish, we've made them become scarred, and we're able to reverse that scar in a dish. Now we move on to rats. One thing that is very interesting: if it's successful, this treatment also could be amenable to treatmen...

Re: Venous drainage in MS - a combined MRI and ultrasound st

scorpion, I assume which one you would choose when you are convinced by RCT that there is benefit to treatment :wink: That may take quite awhile Dr. Scalfani for you see I have had MS long enough that I do not become overly excited about studies showing similar results to that of Zambonis. Generall...

Re: Venous drainage in MS - a combined MRI and ultrasound st

as far as I'm concerned .... any study of CCSVI that DOES NOT include the procedure of vein entry ......... cannot be measured against Dr.Zamboni's results and published papers . The original 65 pwMS ..... CCSVI investigation and treatment ...... performed by the Zamboni TEAM .......... remains unc...

Re: 2 NEUROLOGIST'S POINTS OF VIEW ON CCSVI

Frodo is right--the start of this discussion needs to be on what causes CCSVI. The recent findings of truncular venous malformations in autopsied jugular veins of pwMS by neurologists is causing a stir in the world of neurology--this interview came before the ECTRIMS presentation. Wellllllll, techn...

Re: Little support found for vascular MS theory at ECTRIMS

Italian CoSMo trial http://www.aism.it/index.aspx?codpage=ccsvi_fism_press This study is ongoing, but the prof. Comi (President of the Italian Neurology) has announced that the 700 subjects examined, CCSVI was found in only 10%, for which, according Comi, "and it completely deflated the hypothesis ...

Re: Dr. Zamboni-CCSVI is "difficult to treat"

Just to set the record straight when I was first trying to figure out a user name for the board I was going to pick Scorpio but if my poor memory serves me correctly it was already taken. I believe Scorpio would have been a better choice given that: There is another phase that a Scorpio can take on:...

Re: Dr. Zamboni-"Please wait to be treated"

Wow Jug your coment about being ant-CCSVI sure gave me a case of dejavu! For the sake of avoiding an argument let us assume CCSVI is actually a medical condition. You are saying I am anti a medical condition? I wonder if there are any people who are anti-atherosclerosis? Or maybe anti-hypertension? ...

Re: Dr. Zamboni-"Please wait to be treated"

Cece- I'm just trying to be clear, and not argumentative. Believe me, I understand how much venoplasty can help....but I want pwMS to have all the information before they get treated. We have the luxury of knowing MUCH more than we did when Jeff was first treated. Any where from 25-50% of patients ...

Re: Ever been asked to strip to your underwear for a Neuro E

Happened only once. Very weird. Had the idea in the back of my mind of what the Nazis did to the Jews in order to quell any insubordination during their extermination and felt it was not dissimilar. This was with a testy neurologist whom did not believe CCSVI actually benefited MS patients. Also, n...
