History of the Etanercept Spinal Injection

February 2011:
Three patients were tested (off-label) with a single dose of etanercept, administered by injection into the spine.  This is known as  an entanercept perispinal injection.
These stroke patients had this single dose injection at varying time frames after the onset of the stroke  – 13, 25, 36 months since stroke.
Within 10 minutes of the single entanercept dose – All three had a rapid improvement with…

  • Cognition
  • Chronic Neurological dysfunction
  • Reduction in intractable post stroke pain

Each patient received an additional entanercept perispinal injection 22-26 days after the first one. Additional improvements were again evident.

December 2012
An observational study was published in relation to 629 patients that were treated off-label with the perispinal etanercept  This study included…

  •  617 stroke patients – around 42 months after the stroke
  • 12 patients of traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Again significant and rapid improvements were seen in the stroke patients.
