Emerging Therapies from the NMSS


  1. So Prof G was on the right track about hydration and CCSVI. He has mentioned it a few times

  2. The problem is that people who reject CCSVI are ignorant of most aspects of it, excluding Diaconu. He seems a competent researcher, suffocating though under neurological paternalism. He had a great study in last year ECTRIMS, but it was CCSVI supportive. No wonder it passed unnoticed.

  3. Is that Diaconu CI, Diaconu D, Diaconu CC, Diaconu MM I guess a c who works with Robert Fox who is not exactly a CCSVI supporter.

    He had 'a' great...So 334 was great but P1104 was pants is that what you are saying?

    People who reject... are ignorant..Is there concensus between the Zamboni and the Schelling schools?

    When asked for a concise vision of the problem in your own words, you sent a hundred page plus monologue of Schelling. That was not concise and not your own words unless you are Schelling. If you are Schelling be a mensch.

    If CCSVI turns out to be the bees knees, great, but I have seen this modus operandi of new cure for MS numerous times in the past. The antics of some CCSVI supporters do little to persuade me otherwise.

  4. "The problem is that people"...but most people are not in the VV world and do not know what you are saying as you constantly twist your words.

  5. MD, just tell me which veins are implicated in CCSVI and how, and you 'll persuade me that when you talk about CCSVI you know what you are talking about.

  6. P1104 gave evidence of the obvious, that vein capacity is reduced in dehydration, since cells get the water they lack from blood. To think that vein width is essential in CCSVI means that you don't have a clue what CCSVI is all about. Things have changed since it was first described, but some keep on boasting of being unable to detect it via ultrasound.

  7. I try not to talk about CCSVI:-)

    We just posts the details of papers, you can make your own mind. For some it does not matter what is said as there is a fixed view point. You may argue in both pro and anti camps.

    Things move on since description via ultrasound. So now that people have trouble detecting it with ultrasound, we move the goal posts rather address the anomalies

  8. Zivadinov’s team at Buffalo hydrate their subjects / patients with 16 oz. of water within 2 hours prior to scanning.

    Amongst other things, this presentation by Karen Marr (who is the Doppler Ultrasound Unit Director at Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Centre) mentions briefly the issue of hydration of the patient (@6min).
