Newly Published Research Confirms The Efficacy Of The Drug Combination Minocycline And N-acetylcysteine As A Traumatic Brain Inj
Posted Aug 07 2013 11:00am
The completion of preclinical studies demonstrating the neuro-protective and neuro-regenerative properties of minocycline together with NAC bolsters support for human clinical trials. Neurological Wellness Center physicians have been treating traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke with minocycline and NAC since 2010.
Anecdotal evidence obtained by Neurological Wellness Center physicians appears to confirm this drug combination facilitates improvements in motor impairment, spasticity, sensory impairment and psychological/behavioral function. These drugs are well tolerated, with many patients requesting a continuation of oral minocycline and NAC after completion of their active treatment, according to Rolando Hernandez M.D., neurosurgeon for Neurological Wellness Center
“TBI and stroke result in a self-perpetuating cycle of inflammation in the brain. This excess inflammation persists for years or even decades after the injury. This inflammation contributes to a portion of the many impairments our patients experience. Minocycline and NAC reduce inflammation in the brain. Dr. Hernandez believes this drug combination works synergistically with perispinally administered Enbrel. Perispinally administered Enbrel also reduces this inflammation in the brain, facilitating a recovery of function,” stated Rolando Hernandez M.D.
“Perispinal Enbrel as a TBI and stroke treatment has many attributes. (1) The therapeutic window is wide. A person who’s injury occurred a decade ago or even longer may still benefit. (2) The treatment is short term, involving just two to eight injections over a period of eight to forty days, yet the benefits are long lasting. (3) The dosage of Enbrel needed to achieve these results is quite low compared to the FDA recommendations for moderate plaque psoriasis. The FDA protocol for moderate plaque psoriasis calls for 24 injections totaling 1200 mg of Enbrel over a three month period, followed by weekly injections for life. Whereas a person with moderate to severe TBI would need a maximum of 8 injections totaling 200 mg of Enbrel in this period and would be unlikely to need even a single booster injection. (4) The recovery, improvements can begin to occur in minutes and can build with subsequent injections over a four to eight week period,” stated Dr. Hernandez.
In order for injections of Enbrel to be effective they must be administered to the soft fatty tissue in the back of the neck between cervical vertebrae C-5 and C-6. This simple subcutaneous injection, performed with a fine gauge ½ inch needle, is referred to as a perispinal injection. Neurological Wellness Center offers a complete two-hour course on Alzheimer’s treatment, stroke treatment and traumatic brain injury treatment 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 http://www.neurological-recovery-guide.com.
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, stroke treatment 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.
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. This 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.
