More Than Half of MS Patients in Study show CCSVI-type Blockages!

Using Doppler Ultrasound, doctors at the University of Buffalo detected narrowing of the veins in the extracranial area (outside the skull) of MS patients that they tested. This study is unpublished but was brought to the public because of the high prevalence of the results. Dr. Robert Zivadinov, the principal investigator, claimed that people should have "cautious optimism" that these significant findings will aid in the ongoing research in linking multiple sclerosis with CCSVI. I am ecstatic to hear that this research is being done and patiently waiting for when the medical community can go forward with making the link official and developing useful and common procedures for us all.
