Since 2009, approximately 30,000 MS patients worldwide have undergone the endovascular procedure that opens blockages in veins that drain blood from the brain. The vast majority of these procedures were done on a fee-for-service basis, and not as part of clinical trials.

The idea for PREMiSe took shape as a collaboration between the UB Department of Neurosurgery and the UB Department of Neurology at the suggestion of L. Nelson Hopkins, MD, SUNY Distinguished Professor and chair of neurosurgery, who is co-principal investigator.

The researchers at the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences were "uniquely situated" to study this important question, Siddiqui said. "Here at UB, some of the world's leaders in stroke intervention, in the Department of Neurosurgery, are located right next door to some of the world leaders in multiple sclerosis in the UB Department of Neurology and in imaging at the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC)," he said.

Researchers at UB's BNAC have published or presented more than 25 studies on CCSVI and its relationship to neurological diseases including MS.

"Our findings over the last three years have indicated that CCSVI is more prevalent in MS patients than in healthy controls but the cause or consequence of these venous abnormalities has not been established," said Robert Zivadinov, MD, PhD, FAAN, UB professor of neurology, director of the BNAC and co-principal investigator on the study.

The endovascular intervention is based on the hypothesis that the narrowing in the large veins in the neck and chest might cause improper drainage of blood from the brain, resulting in eventual injury to brain tissue, Zivadinov explained. It was thought that angioplasty -- treatment commonly used by cardiologists and other endovascular surgeons to treat atherosclerosis -- m
