UBC plans to test potentially groundbreaking MS treatment (the Liberation Treatment)

Posted By: Stuart Schlossman -RRMS

New Theory proposes that multiple sclerosis is a vascular disease that can be addressed with surgery

By: Jane Armstrong

Vancouver From Wednesday's Globe and Mail

The University of British Columbia has announced plans to begin patient trials to test a potentially groundbreaking method of diagnosing and treating multiple sclerosis, a disease that afflicts up to 75,000 Canadians.

Researchers have proposed launching a study involving 100 patients to test a theory that MS is a vascular disease that can be treated with surgery. It's the first research proposal in Canada to suggest evaluating the findings of an Italian doctor whose early studies indicate that multiple sclerosis might be caused by vein blockages that lead to a buildup of iron in the brain.

Unlike Dr. Zamboni's earlier studies, the UBC research plan will include a control group – which gives more heft to a study's findings – and will take place over a longer period.

While it's wonderful to see that Stu is now on Tysabri. And that another reputable MS blogger Trevis Gleason will be on Tysabri soon!

It's sad that many privileged or special people taking Tysabri for their MS would deny being on this drug. Like a former Gov's wife, etc. Or Hollywood stars.

Neither Stu or Trevis are privileged or special with their MS. As they are open and forthright about what treatments they take & what concerns them.

Stu & Trevis....will we hear about how Tysabri promotes your STEM CELLS...if you do well on the therapy?
