CCSVI: There is Money in Pseudoscience, and It Sells
Dr Zambo

"The basis for using venous angioplasty as a treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS), is the presumed pathophysiological mechanism of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI).
No evidence has been found for the efficacy of angioplasty as a treatment for MS.
Using venous angioplasty to treat MS (with presumed CCSVI) does not comply with established medical science and medical practice."
- A. Veerman, MD; H.M. Gaasbeek Janzen, PHMD [College voor zorgverzekeringen (CVZ)]

"It is an unfortunate truth that there is money in pseudoscience, particularly medical pseudoscience. Money both attracts charlatans and also funds their activities, which includes marketing pseudoscience and defending their claims from scientific scrutiny. In this way the game is rigged in favor of pseudoscience...
The marketing strategy is three-fold. First, get naive professional athletes to endorse the product. Second, give live demonstrations (deceptive parlor tricks) that convince the unsuspecting that something must be going on. And third, wow the scientifically illiterate with a confusing barrage of medical techno-babble. The combination is sadly effective."
- Steven Novella, MD

"All scientific opinions create complex discussion, and the blend of passion and science that CCSVI and MS bring forth require tempered deliberation that should focus on data and facts. This necessitates a balance between scepticism and openness to new ideas. Although I am absolutely sure that there is no scientific proof for the existence of CCSVI and the pathologic relation in the development of MS, it is hard to believe that some of the people I have always known as honest scientists, with important contributions to the field of IR, have now adopted the habit of spreading false information, for whatever reason."
- Jim Reekers, MD [Amsterdam]
