An Italian researcher has uncovered a new clue in the search for the cause of MS. It is the discovery of a narrowing of the primary veins outside of the skull. It restricts normal blood flow to the brain resulting in a vascular condition found in MS patients. Now UB is ready to dig into this research. Dr. Robert Zivadinov is an associate professor of Neurology.
A study is already underway in Buffalo. Dr. Murali Ramanathan, associate professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at UB, says they want to replicate the findings from Italy.
