MS News and MS CCSVI What Next?

At this point, there is still much talk about the MS news or MS CCSVI connection.

The initial study of Dr. Paolo Zamboni, released the results of a 2 year study in 2009, which suggested that there may be a link between MS and CCSVI, a condition where there are blockages in the veins of the neck or the upper chest, which prevent the blood draining away from the brain in people, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr. Zamboni's initial study, in combination with the results from the Buffalo, NY study of 2010 of MS patients revealed that people, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, have a much higher incident rate for the presence of CCSVI, than people who weren't diagnosed with MS.

How does any of this apply to you, who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis?

Does this idea about the potential MS CCSVI link apply to the majority of people, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis?

According to the MS CCSVI study performed in Buffalo, NY in 2010, there appears 50% of the people with MS in the study appeared to have the condition of CCSVI.

But further studies need to be done to confirm these preliminary findings, in the exploration into the theory of the possible link between MS and CCSVI.
