Enbrel is a drug used for the treatment of Psoriatic arthritis and other auto-immune diseases. Enbrel is a large molecule, so when given as an injection or IV in the arm it cannot pass the blood-brain barrier. However, research has shown that if Enbrel is injected into the vertebral vascular system the drug goes directly into the central nervous system i.e. the spine and brain.
Enbrel when injected this way stops the inflammatory cascade in the central nervous system within hours, and appears to stop it permanently. So that is why it is now being used for spinal stenosis, strokes (of any age), ASD, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, PTSD and any neurological injury or genetic defect that causes an inflammatory response.
This unique use of Enbrel is now becoming the treatment of choice by neurologists in Australia and now we are seeing it used here in the US.
