The National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the MS Society of Canada have just released their report on the progress of the seven CCSVI studies that they funded June 2010. Although the first six months are crucial, we probably won’t see widespread results for a while. Still the fact that rigorous protocols are being set up and they are successfully recruiting patients is a great sign of things to come.
As one epidemiologist that has been involved in the research stated in his blog post: It can be a frustrating time in the early part of a study when we want the research to bear out quickly what we believe it will ultimately show–that CCSVI is a condition that is responsible for the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and that the liberation procedure is a tool that restores health and vitality to those suffering from the disease.
