Vascular Injury in MS

Bumped again--I don't think this article was posted before but then I haven't been through this thread in while. I think it is a must read (full article is available) if you're interested in CCSVI. Immunohistochemical study of vascular injury in acute multiple sclerosis . AIMS: To examine the vascul...

Ischemia

Hi--I haven't read all of this thread...but this caught my eye. colros To repeat, there is no way that blockages in neck veins could selectively cause ischemia of white matter. They could only potentially cause reduction in TOTAL cerebral blood flow which would result in unconsciousness before ever ...

Thanks for the info Cheer As you might suspect, I'm not surprised by this news. Since this lawsuit originated in 2005 I am really surprised though that Dr. Bowling and June Halper continue to hold important positions in the professional MS community. I can only guess that one reason may be that this...

CCSVI Debate--CMSC June 1-4 Montreal

Hi all Just discovered that this year's Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) will be held in Montreal June 1-4. At quick glance a highlight appears to be a debate between Dr. Freedman and Dr. Zivadinov about CCSVI. Hopefully some of our Canadian friends (others too of course) will be able...

Estriol

Hi Brazill and Cabbage Welcome to TIMS...I would just add that I think it's smart to have your hormone levels tested and to be "in balance". I don't know if putting a device in your womb for the progesterone will be sufficient or not. Personally my testing indicated I had zero progesterone and capsu...

NMSS and CCSVI ???

While I applaud and support everyone who volunteers to raise funds to advance MS research and support, I am personally convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that the NMSS in the US does not support advancing CCSVI research. I've been leary about the NMSS support for CCSVI from the gitgo, but a recent...

Gray Matter Atrophy in CIS

Hi The main problem with the hypoperfusion hypothesis is that reduction in cerebral blood flow will affect the high oxygen consumption neurones of the grey matter long before it affects the low oxygen consumption glial cells of the white matter, the cells involved in producing myelin disease of whic...

Bladder Issues

Hi WW Indeed, hopefully you did sleep better last night. I can't comment directly on bladder issues as thus far I've managed not to have any (knock on wood). However, I did see this on Pub Med today, and since its research in the UK I thought I'd throw it out here. Long-Term Effect on Quality of Lif...

Interferons and NABS

Sheldon You asked about interferon dependency and going off it. but I've heard a number of stories that suggest that it can be a serious issue, such as severe relapses after going off medication or missing doses. I know nothing about interferon dependency, but I think all should be aware of the pote...

I for one appreciated having ...

Progesterone and MS

L Indeed I have tried estrogen and progesterone for MS. I'm on 8mg estriol/500mg progesterone and have been for about 6 years (diagnosed 7+ years ago at age 57). Progesterone dose recommended after testing. Do they work? That's a million dollar question. Let me say first given the nature of the dise...
