Re: Dr. Dake sued

The article is clearly written or copied from the plaintiffs' attorney information, so the 'facts' are as they wish to present them. What the real facts are will come out in court if it goes that far. I don't expect Stanford and Dr. Dake to also present their case through press releases, interviews ...

Re: BNAC - Risk factors for CCSVI in volunteers

Ooops - Thanks Cheer ... missed seeing the existing thread. It is very interesting results and really shows the value of having a large pool of both PwMS and disease free people to gather the health, demographic, gender data.

BNAC's research publication process

BNAC shows that it is following a rigorous process in publishing its research into CCSVI and MS. Wonder if some of the quickie articles critical of CCSVI have had similar thoroughness before publication?

I was disappointed that the reporter somehow took something Dr. Zivadinov said and got it twisted around to "not only is the procedure unsafe and costly to many patients, it is impeding necessary research." The NPR report could have been much better done. I believe Dr. Zivadinov was talking about th...

It is fine to be skeptical and want confirmation about CCSVI but that is not what he is after. I am sorry to see him being broug...
