This afternoon, Health Minister Susan Sullivan announced that there were no measurable positive results from a controversial treatment for multiple sclerosis.
The results are from an observational study done by the province into the Zamboni "liberation" treatment which an Italian researcher believed could alleviate MS symptoms.
Other medical experts have been skeptical about the treatment.
The province refused to fund the treatment, but in September 2010 the government put up $400,000 to do an observational study on the results of the disorder.
Sullivan said the study resulted in "no measurable, objective benefit."
However people enrolled in the study reported "physical and psychological well-being" as a result of the treatment.
