  VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jul 06 (MARKET WIRE) --
On September 10, 2011, the National CCSVI Society (NCS) will host a
Canadian CCSVI Forum in Sidney, BC. Dr. Paolo Zamboni first linked
chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), a new venous
condition, to MS; evidence now also links Parkinson's, ALS, Alzheimer's,
and Dementia. Simple angioplasty has shown promising results to treat
symptoms for these neurodegenerative disorders. The Canadian government
recently supported moving forward with CCSVI clinical trials.

    NCS announces New Discoveries, New Beginnings - its premiere CCSVI
conference for CCSVI patients, employers, and healthcare stakeholders.
Leading researchers and physicians, including Dr. Mark Haacke (keynote),
Dr. Bill Code, Dr. David Williams, Dr. Joseph Hewett, Dr. Raj Attariwala,
and Dr. Kirsty Duncan, MP, will detail how CCSVI is emerging as a new
vascular disorder affecting many thousands of Canadians. A banquet dinner
and silent auction follow.
