Novel Drug Treatment Quickly Reverses Traumatic Brain Injury
Date:5/8/2013

(PRWEB) May 08, 2013

Neurological Recovery Guide and Neurological Wellness Center have been facilitating recovery from traumatic brain injury since 2010. March was Brain Injury Awareness Month. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a serious problem in the United States according to this article in the Huffington Post. 1.7 million Americans will experience a TBI in 2013. 3.1 million Americans live with life long disability as a result of TBI. According to the Brain Injury Association 30.5% of all injury-related deaths in the U.S. have TBI as a contributing factor.

This novel treatment involves a simple subcutaneous injection of the common anti-inflammatory drug Enbrel into the back of the neck between the cervical vertebrae C-5 and C-6. An observational study published in the October 2012 issue of CNS Drugs* followed five persons with TBI who were given a single perispinal injection of Enbrel. Prior to treatment these five individuals took an average of 35.0 seconds to walk 20 meters. Three weeks after this single injection they were able to walk the 20 meters at an average time of 23.7 seconds. All five persons showed improvement. The median pre-treatment time was 26.5 seconds, and the median time three weeks post-treatment was 15.7 seconds. Individuals with the greatest impairment improved the most.

Three weeks after a single injection 100% had improvements in spasticity, 87.5 had cognitive improvements, 80% had psychological improvements and 100% had sensory improvements.
