Another study will be starting soon at UBC in Vancouver, Canada.

They're going to take 100 MSer's, test them all for CCSVI, and give 50% of them the angioplast and 50% a fake procedure. Then in 1 year they'll really do the procedure on the faked 50%, and do a phoney one on the others.

The participants will not know whether or not they had been treated for CCSVI the first time around.

Maybe someone with more computer savy can post a link from the UBC MS clinic site.
