The front page of online version of The New York Times has a link to “From M.S. Patients, Outcry for Unproved Treatment“. It reports on Multiple Sclerosis and CCSVI (aka Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency) providing information about patients and doctors who are trying the “liberation procedure”.

The most sobering sentence? “These critics warn that multiple sclerosis has unpredictable attacks and remissions that make it devilishly hard to know whether treatments are working — leaving patients vulnerable to purported ‘cures’ that do not work.”

I hang on to hope with the resignation of a skeptic and await solid science.
