blind mice...wait a second, serious question here...

I was just joking about the whole blind mice thing, then it occurred to me.... One of the first symptoms of MS is sometimes foot drop, as in our mouse. (I wonder if this was or will be objectively verified. Even the researcher says it is barely perceptible). But frequently another beginning symptom ...

Being paid by drug companies or making any kind of financial gain related to how you practice medicine allows you to be controlled by someone other than your patient, who is also paying you, and may be unaware of your behavior. This conflict will damage patients, financially and/or physically. Doct...

Clearly, the mouse and the researchers are deluding themselves with a reverse-placebo effect. The mouse knows its veins have been altered, and it wants to please the researchers, who know exactly what they are hoping to see, and so the mouse limps a little. The only way this test will ever prove any...

CCSVI and the flu....

Maybe its just me, but I think I have noticed a trend among the liberated, that shortly after the liberation they get a nasty flu, bug, cold, or infection of some sort. Here's a interesting theory....the reflux of the blood does not allow infections to clear out from the brain. These infections neve...

I think Dr. Dake is just trying to be very cautious about what he claims about treating CCSVI when talking to the press. We THINK some MS damage may be permanent, but this is the first time, ever, where there was at least some hope of stopping what (maybe) is causing MS. This is a LOT of unexplored ...

Re: so what really IS an auto-immune disease?

You could make the same argument about cancer treatment I guess. What argument? I just asked a question. I am not sure why you think autoimmune diseases do not exist? Never said that either. The only autoimmune disease I know anything about is MS. But it sounds like, from what Lyon posted, what act...

so what really IS an auto-immune disease?

One of the arguments against the auto-immune theory of MS is that it has never been proven, after 50 years and billions of dollars in research, what we have is: 1) Take this drug. It might help. 2) If it works, we don't know why. 3) If it doesn't work, we don't know why. 4) If it works, but only a l...

Procarin

My wife tried it for awhile before she is as bad off as she is now and she got some very limited benefit...improvements would show up briefly, then disappear and never come back. At close to $250 a month not covered by insurance, we mutually decided the benefit was not worth the cost with our limite...

mods - another good topic, but off topic for ccsvi - so label it off-topic. I, for one, am glad to hear about it and would not have if it had not been in this forum. Although I am also skeptical. The rat model is so flawed. Curing rats means nothing at all -- except the researchers know how to cure...

Re: Defining a syndrome

Mark once again you are putting the horse before the cart when you say CCSVI should be treated before understanding the causes of CCSVI.

We do not know what causes MS. Therefore, MS should not be treated?
