“A new study from Germany has found that multiple sclerosis (MS) patients showed no evidence of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) — striking another blow against the theory that obstructed blood flow in veins exiting the brain may be a cause of MS.
The findings directly contradict results reported last year and in 2007 by Paolo Zamboni, MD, of the University of Ferrara in Italy, and colleagues from a 300-participant ultrasound study, in which nearly all the MS patients but few controls had CCSVI.”
Earlier this week, the New York Times reported, “From M.S. Patients, Outcry for Unproved Treatment.”
And we recently reviewed a Philadelphia Inquirer story, ” ‘Liberation procedure’ for multiple sclerosis sparks debate.”
