Interventional Radiology Treatment for CCSVI in MS Patients
Advancing MS Research: A Look at a Vein-opening Treatment
About 500,000 people in the United States have MS generally thought of as an incurable, disabling autoimmune disease in which a person's body attacks its own cells. A new study explores an endovascular treatment used by interventional radiologists to widen the veins in the neck and chest to improve blood flow. Will it encourage additional studies for its use as a treatment option for chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency or CCSVI in individuals with multiple sclerosis? Such treatments could be transformative for patients. (Embargoed for release until Monday, March 28, 2011, at 8 a.m. Eastern) B-roll will be available.
