Social Affairs, Science and Technology (November 1, 2012)

Dr. Andreas Laupacis from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Dr. Robert Zivadinov with the the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Centre, and Dr. Paolo Zamboni of the University of Ferrara in Italy present their views on Bill S-204, An Act to establish a national strategy for chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) treatments for multiple sclerosis patients in Canada.
