Cenaculum Studiorum Bologna 8 September 2009

I am just back from Italy and I wish to share with you my experience in partaking in the first international congress on CCSVI and MS. First of all I have to aknowledge that the organization of the meeting was impeccable and that the technological support was first class: I felt proud to be Italian ...

We are all scientists and researchers now!

I apologise, I cannot help but intervene in the discussion. The debate whether MS is an autoimmune disease or due to many other imaginific causes has been going on for decades and where did it lead us? To this: MS is incurable. This discussion is as productive as to choose the weapon to use to kill ...

CCSVI - Bologna

Brainteaser, Thank you for your support. I have met the Director of the MS society of Northern Ireland today and given her the papers published by Zamboni's group together with the brochure of the meeting in Bologna. Would you believe that she never heard of the endovascular treatment of CCSVI? Do y...

venous problems

Sharon, You are correct. I do not have the presuption of being able to discuss the etiology of MS because I lack knowledge and expertise. It is a fact that a great positive correlation between MS and defective venous drainage of the blood from the brain has been demonstrated by Zamboni's group and c...

Venous insufficiency

Hi everybody, From many of your messages posted on this topic it seems to me that there is still some confusion regarding the different mechanisms which are the cause of the venous deficiency in the leg and in the brain. Although the underlying cause is different, the end result is similar, i.e. ulc...

"Beggars" become "Choosers"

It is time for people to start thinking. Let us review the situation of MS sufferers before the Zamboni's revolution. Nobody knew the etiology of MS but everybody knew the inevitable outcome. Being diagnosed with MS meant a sentence to a painful and distressing death. Neurologists and allied profess...

Skepticism or ignorance?

Skepticism is certainly useful, especially in the clinical field, because it avoids unjustified enthusiasm for unproven theories. Skeptics about the endovascular treatment of MS should probably bother to read the papers published by prof. Zamboni and his team. It seems to me an unlikely coincidence ...
