Study suggests CCSVI could be symptom of MS研究指出 中樞神經 靜脈循環異常 "可能"是MS的症狀之一
This "suggests that CCSVI may be a consequence rather than a cause of MS," Dr. Bianca Weinstock Guttman, a co-author of the study, said in a University of Buffalo news release.
水牛城醫學中心表示: 由我們的研究報告看來, CCSVI可能是MS引發的結果.
"An increase prevalence in progressives as compared to relapsing disease leaves open the possibility that CCSVI may be playing a contributory role in or be a consequence of the disease or may be age related," wrote authors Dr. Robert Fox and Dr. Alex Rae Grant in an accompanying editorial.
水牛城醫學中心表示: 由我們的研究報告中也指出在較為嚴重的MS病型態(逐漸退化型)當中, CCSVI扮演了很關鍵的角色, 它CCSVI會加速病程的進展以及身體機能的退化,
"I think there are two key messages of the study," said Dr. Robert Zivadinov, a professor of neurology at the University of Buffalo and the study's lead researcher.
"One is certainly that CCSVI is associated with MS,"
"On the other hand, the fact that almost one in four (subjects) has CCSVI and has no MS, and the fact that almost 45 per cent of our subjects who had other neurologic diseases had CCSVI, clearly puts a question whether CCSVI is the cause of this disease," he said.
