Reaction of the Swiss Multiple Sclerosis Society

The Swiss Multiple Sclerosis Society published 17. Nov. 2009 a news message concerning venous Multiple Sclerosis / CCSVI.

This message is surprisingly not written in inquisitive style, but contains mistakes and does not reflect latest scientific results.

Multiple Sclerosis was described for the first time 1868 by J. Charcot. Since Charcot scientific research is ongoing. Until now no theory concerning the cause of MS could be proven.
