Subsequent BNAC Trial Results Published: All MSers had CCSVI
Interesting, especially since this is the same group of researchers that only found 55% (or 62%) the first time: http://www.thisisms.com/ftopict-16149.html. However, it should be noted that the MS patients were chosen because of a prior diagnosis of CCSVI (so these were more of a confirmation of the diagnosis) and this was only a small group of people in a study focused on other things, such as the fact that normal MRI (MRV) imaging doesn't do a good job of finding stenoses. They also seem to be finding that proper diagnosis takes quite a bit of finesse and experience.
