Xiaflex Approved by FDA For Treatment of Claw Hand – Trial Ongoing for Off Label Use to Combat Penile Curvature

No I am not making this up as you can see the links below with full documentation from BNET. Off label use for Xiaflex requires 2 injections so if one can make it through the injections it could stand to merit off label use as well as giving relief to those who suffer from claw hand.
There is also additional regenerative research going on with a total replacement, called “the rabbit report” here. So far one happy rabbit has enjoyed success with his organ that was grown and they are hoping to move this capability up to a human level in time.
The company plans to market the product to physicians who are familiar with giving injections in the hand area and are familiar with the treatment of claw hand. Side effects include allergies and potential permanent damage to tendons if the shot is not administered to the correct target area and could result in surgery to help repair any damages. Now this really would make one want to be absolutely sure on the other off label use in clinical trials. BD
