I have to give Brad Wall credit in this case. He’s right to start looking more closely at a possible treatment for MS that is better than the current drugs. Angioplasty is a well known treatment for blockages, and should be offered if patients and doctors are willing to undergo studies on its new implementation.
One case the CBC followed, has so far been a success story. That it apparently works, even for a short time, is sign for hope. The drugs used for treating MS are not a cure, and could be the entirely wrong way to go about treating the disease. Ulcers were treated incorrectly for a long time too, until a smart doctor realized the actual cause of most stomach ulcers. Pharmaceutical companies don’t exactly have an incentive to find a cure, when they can stay rich by treating symptoms instead.
If only Wall would recognize the importance of minimizing pain and debilitation in the rest of the population too!
