BNAC Study - even more interesting

A Canadian Press story ( indicates that in the BNAC study, people with more advanced MS symptoms had CCSVI rates of 80%, and that it was people with CIS (only one MS attack in their lives) at only 38% that brought that average down.  I have a feeling that there is more interesting information coming out of that study, as people get a chance to dig in to the detailed results.

Later note: Some people are looking for the source of this Canadian Press story, since these statistics (CIS - 38% and CDMS - 80%) were apparently not mentioned in any BNAC press release. Overall, in TiMS, there is a LOT of discussion regarding what the study results mean and a growing consensus that we need to see the published results (not just press releases) to understand what was done and what the results might mean.

  1. Great news! The first CCSVI story in the U.S. aired tonight in San Francisco on ABC. This is history in the making!
