CCSVI Video: Interview with Dr. Paolo Zamboni and Dr. Jack Burks
Posted Feb 20 2011 9:35pm
Sorry that things have been quiet here on Wheelchair Kamikaze for the last week or so, but I've been battling a bit of a bug. I hope you'll enjoy the following tasty tidbit of CCSVI information…
Here's another video sponsored by the CCSVI Alliance ( click here ), and edited by yours truly. It features an interview with the "father of CCSVI", Dr. Paolo Zamboni, and Dr. Jack Burks, an MS Neurologist who is the Medical Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America. The interview was recorded on 01/17/11 in Miami Beach, Florida, at the International Symposium for Endovascular Therapy. Conducted by Sharon Richardson, the President of the CCSVI Alliance, the interview features Dr. Zamboni in person, and Dr. Burks joining via audio teleconference.
One of the biggest hurdles facing CCSVI researchers has been the reluctance of neurologists to get behind CCSVI trials, but this situation now seems to be shifting, and hopefully some much-needed interdisciplinary cooperation will be forthcoming. As is illustrated by the discussion in this video, CCSVI research is in its early infancy, and we've only scratched the surface on what needs to be learned. Momentum is building, though, and the next 6-12 months should bring much revealing data, as a host of trial information is scheduled to become available. Not soon enough for patients suffering from MS, I know, but we are getting there, slowly but surely.
