Society of Interventional Radiology supports research for new MS treatments

About 500,000 people in the United States have M.S., and SIR understands the public's desire to advance treatment for M.S., generally thought of as an autoimmune disease in which a person's body attacks its own cells. Currently, medicines may slow the disease and help control symptoms. The role of CCSVI in M.S. and its endovascular treatment (through a catheter placed in a vein) by an interventional radiologist via balloon angioplasty and/or stents to open up veins "could be transformative for patients and is being actively investigated," said Benenati. "The idea that there may be a venous component to the etiology (or cause) of some symptoms in patients with M.S. is a radical departure from
