Re: 4th Annual ISNVD conference announced

This is coming up next month. Hopefully the 4th conference will accelerate the process of diagnosis and treatment for CCSVI. It should be very interesting.

Re: CCSVI or TOS or both? (new research)

Spoke with Dr. Ahn on Sunday...he is very aware of CCSVI and the TOS overlap. Due to his schedule he is unable to attend the ISNVD Conference in Feb, but he is very interested in sending one of his team members to the meeting. I passed along Kelly Denz's (ISNVD) contact info to him. Dr. Ahn is a rea...

Blood Vessel Endothelial Cells Can Repair, Regenerate Organs

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/10/131008152218.htm In studies appearing in recent issues of Stem Cell Journal and Developmental Cell, the researchers show that endothelial cells -- the cells that make up the structure of blood vessels -- are powerful biological machines that drive regener...

Oligodendrocytes and REM sleep

It certainly seems likely that cerebral hypoperfusion due to CCSVI would have a negative impact on the ability to obtain REM stage sleep. The reduction in sufficient oxygen, glucose, various hormones, and CSF flow due to CCSVI could certainly help explain the impairment from a human perspective. htt...

Re: CCSVI or TOS or both? (new research)

I will contact Dr. Ahn's office (mail & email), mention our interest in his study and note the ISNVD Meeting in San Francisco, Feb 7-9, 2014. It may be of some benefit for the ISNVD communiations staff to send Dr. Ahn an information packet, if possible. It seems that joint TOS/CCSVI or CCSVI/TOS stu...

CCSVI or TOS or both? (new research)

We were looking at this abstract and thought it would be a good idea if these researchers attend the ISNVD Meeting in SF in February. They may not even be aware of the ISNVD. We have dedicated a number of recent posts to the discussion of thoracic outlets syndrome (TOS), a condition which causes com...
