A story broadcast throughout Canada on CTV describes a new therapy to treat multiple sclerosis and reports that researchers from Italy have been working with a UB team led by Robert Zivadinov, professor of neurology, to recruit 1,700 adults and children to do detailed analysis of blood flow in and out of the brain. The research also is the subject of an article in the Toronto Globe and Mail, which quotes Bianca Weinstock-Guttman, UB associate professor of neurology, who says if the new treatment is proven correct; it will completely change how MS is thought about and treated. Articles also appear in the Toronto Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Nova Scotia News, Canoe.ca.
