    There have been numerous studies showing that CCSVI is ineffective, sometimes harmful. Some of them have been mentioned here, I'm sure.

    There are those who are still investigating it as a possible treatment but the general enthusiasm for it has faded very appreciably in the last couple of years.

    The National MS Society has some material about CCSVI in case you didn't check there:
