Associated Press: MS patients push for new treatment testing

Release Date: March 22, 2010

An article distributed by the Associated Press reports that because of intense pressure from patients, some U.S. doctors are cautiously testing a provocative theory that abnormal blood drainage from the brain may play a role in multiple sclerosis, and that more than 1,000 people applied for 30 slots in a soon-to-start study of an angioplasty procedure to be conducted at UB. The article looks at research that is being conducted at UB and quotes Robert Zvadinov, professor of neurology.

The article received wide distribution in the U.S. and Canada, and appeared in outlets that include USA Today, The New York Times,, CBS News, NPR and Winnipeg Free Press.
