Cool. That should end the hysteria.“We now know the cause of MS. It’s no longer a mystery,” said Dr. Hafler, who was involved with the new study.

Orion I was not trying to single Marie out or did I imply she chose the name of the book. In fact I had no clue how the name of the book was chosen until reading what you posted above and honestly I have no problem with someone presenting the hypotheses that MS is caused by CCSVI. I was simply pointing out that the comment Zinamaria made was inaccurate.orion98665 wrote:Scorp, Using Marie Rhodes book as an example in this thread is justscorpion wrote:zinamaria wrote:And where did they get their information that Zamboni or anyone says that blocked veins are the 'cause' of MS....he has never said it, other scientists have never said it, WE here on Tims, those of us who are open to exploring the idea that CCSVI MAY BE associated with MS, have never said it!

plain wrong. Here is a statement Marie made on another thread.
Second the title of my book "CCSVI as the cause of Multiple sclerosis the science behind the controversial theory" is descriptive of what genre of material is evaluated in the book, it is not a scientific conclusion of course because my book isn't "research" but reference. THIS IS IMPORTANT: THE TITLE IS CHOSEN BY THE PUBLISHER.
This only solidifies the case that the immune system plays a role in MS. In CCSVI theory, the immune system has a role to play.MSBOB wrote:The study being refered to was an international genetics study on over 9,000 MSers and over 17,000 controls. The evidence for MS being automine related has been solidified by the fact that the 29 genetic markers were related to T cell proliferation, lyphocytes, cytokines, and other immune responses.
There is a lot of research underway on endovascular treatment. The science is coming if not already here.Unfortunately for ccsvi, it has very little to go by other than the testamonials presented by patients.
Extended immobility was not a factor in my case and my CCSVI was severe (80% and 99% bilateral jugular stenosis). Dehydration is more of a potential factor if we are looking at narrowing of the veins, not of the valve. Valve malformations in the jugular are the most common presentation of CCSVI according to clinical reports.The science is new for ccsvi, and doctors are still debating if it is a natural variation, if it exists, or if it may be related to dehydration or extended immobility.
No clinical trials on the surgery, because the parameters for it have not been laid proper.
At ISNVD, the data presented showed a consensus that CCSVI treatment alleviated MS fatigue. MS fatigue is the most common MS symptom and it is not well explained nor does it have any treatment that particularly works.I don't know if ccsvi causes any symptoms that can be relieved from the surgeries. So far, it is pretty vague and not leaning in that direction.
