CCSVI Advocacy

In the fall of 2009, the recently published science of CCSVI and its theoretical relation to the MS disease process, combined with the possibility of substantial symptom improvement through CCSVI resolution, resulted in an unprecedented patient-advocacy for proper research into CCSVI and MS. Predictably, financially-compromised neurologists and some MS charities strongly opposed such non-drug research and made many denigrating and misleading statements about CCSVI.

To counter the anti-CCSVI campaign mounted by the neurological community, Direct-MS produced many essays and letters based on the information on CCSVI in the scientific literature. The misleading, and often false information on CCSVI produced by the neurological community and conservative columnists is discussed and countered in the documents linked below.
