In Milan, Italy, the CCSVI in MS Society and the advertising group Lowe Pirella Fronzoni have been sued by the Italian MS Society for their advertising campaign on the Brave Dreams study. It seems as though the MS Society took the CCSVI non-profit group to court due to their ad being too successful in fundraising.
Here is the advertising campaign which is being contested by the Italian MS Society.
The court will reconvene on June 19 as the judge has asked the two groups to settle amicably. It seems strange that an MS Society would sue a CCSVI organization for engaging advertising Here is the link to the CCSVI in MS group in Italy, as translated by google.
The Italian MS Society did not choose to fund Brave Dreams, but did donate millions to Dr. Giancarlo Comi, a neurologist, for work on his own studies. He did not make use of Dr. Zamboni’s specific doppler US protocol. Dr. Comi has communicated clearly his dislike for Dr. Zamboni and the CCSVI theory. Yet the Italian press has identified conflicts of interest in Dr. Comi’s studies as he is very heavily involved and well paid in pharmaceutical research which uses the autoimmune model of MS.
Research into the connection between CCSVI and MS needs to be studied in blinded and controlled clinical studies such as Brave Dreams. We would be denying science and research if we do not study this connection.
CCSVI treatment is available at Angeles Health in Mexico from a Stanford trained interventional cardiologist as well as a neurologist. We keep all patients in hospital for up to five days after surgery and are excellent value for money. Fill in the form on the right for more information.
