Date:8/31/2010

territories, to monitor and analyze preliminary and final results from these studies, as well as from related studies from around the world. The first meeting of this expert working group should take place in this calendar year.

  • Based on the outcomes of these studies, the scientific expert working group should reach conclusions regarding (1) the association (or lack thereof) between impaired cerebral venous drainage and MS; and (2) a common standard for reliably diagnosing the condition using imaging or other techniques.

  • Depending on these conclusions, the scientific expert working group should make recommendations on further studies including, if appropriate, a pan-Canadian interventional clinical trial.

    Thursday's meeting consisted of a review of evidence, current international efforts and knowledge gaps, with an emphasis on the potential links between CCSVI and MS; a thorough review of past, current and proposed clinical trials; and the identification of clinical research priorities for Canada. Participants represented a range of disciplines including neuro- and cardioimaging, immunology, neurosurgery, vascular surgery, pathology, neurology and intervention radiology.

    "CIHR will continue to work with the MS Society of Canada and Health Canada to advance safe, evidence-based research and innovation on this devastating disease, which affects so many Canadians," Dr. Beaudet concluded.
