New Hope for Relief of Chronic Sciatica
Date:4/30/2009

New hope for hundreds of thousands of people suffering from chronic sciatica was revealed this week in a Phase II randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Researchers from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center reported that localized (epidural) administration of etanercept, a unique therapeutic that neutralizes TNF (tumor necrosis factor), holds promise as a treatment for sciatica. Epidural etanercept for sciatica was invented by a California physician, Edward Tobinick MD, Director of the Institute for Neurological Research in Los Angeles.

This concept was pioneered and patented not by the drug's manufacturer, but rather by Dr. Tobinick at the Institute for Neurological Research in Los Angeles. For the past ten years he has been, and is currently, using locally administered etanercept for treatment of pa
