Novel Drug Treatment Quickly Reverses Traumatic Brain Injury

(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.

Edward Tobinick, M.D., the study’s lead author, stated “Statistically significant clinical improvements in multiple domains were documented following perispinal administration of etanercept in this patient cohort, even in patients treated years after stroke and TBI. Surprising improvements in motor function, spasticity, cognition, incontinence, vision, taste, hearing (and) smell were observed in the patient cohort, all suggesting the existence of a novel and effective therapeutic response.”

“Perispinal injections of Enbrel offer new hope for the brain injured person” stated Rolando Hernandez, M.D., neurosurgeon with Neurological Wellness Center. “This is real hope with life-changing potential. Although there is a wide range of treatment outcomes, the potential for substantial recovery of function exists even ten years after the TBI” said Dr. Hernandez.

Neurological Wellness Center offers a complete two-hour course on Alzheimer's treatment,
stroke treatment and [TBI treatment __title__ Neurological Recovery Guide] covering all aspects of perispinal injection technique at their Neurological Wellness Center in Managua Nicaragua.

For many, flying to the Neurological Wellness Center in Nicaragua to receive this personalized training is an enormous expense and inconvenience. To overcome this problem, Neurological Wellness Center, under the direction of Augusto Ramirez, M.D., created Perispinal Enbrel Step-By-Step Instructional Video and accompanying e-book. This 24-minute video and 37-page e-book are now available online at

Augusto Ramirez, M.D., Director of Neurological Wellness Center, a private medical group in Managua Nicaragua, authorized this press release.

Neurological Wellness Center’s perispinal Enbrel is profoundly effective as an Alzheimer's treatment with our Alzheimer's clinical trial, stroke treatment with our stroke clinical trial and TBI treatment. The general treatment recommendation: for stroke is one 25mg injection of Enbrel every four days for a total of four doses over 16 days; for TBI is one 25mg injection of Enbrel every four days for a total of eight doses. This compares with Amgen/Pfizer’s FDA-approved dose schedule for moderate plaque psoriasis of 50mg twice weekly for three months followed by 50mg weekly for life.

The drug Enbrel is available now. Enbrel received FDA approval in 1998. Its safety profile is well understood. Enbrel is a highly advertised, commonly prescribed drug manufactured by Immunex for Amgen / Pfizer. Over 400,000 Americans self inject Enbrel each week, mostly as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Enbrel is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Dr. Augusto believes many of the impairments people with TBI or stroke experience are due to a self-perpetuating cascade of inflammation that was initiated by the brain injury. For Enbrel to effectively treat Alzheimer’s, stroke and TBI, it must be administered to the back of the neck. This simple subcutaneous injection referred to as a perispinal injection allows Enbrel to enter the brain by lymph drainage assisted by gravity. “Fortunately for the millions of people now afflicted with Alzheimer’s, stroke and TBI, a video is now available online detailing in step-by-step fashion how to administer a perispinal injection of Enbrel,” said Dr. Rolando Hernandez M.D. neurosurgeon with Neurological Wellness Center.
