      Has Enbrel ever been studied as a possible treatment option for CIDP?

      I know it’s a biologic immune-modulator… My wife uses it for her Rheumatoid Arthritis (which also is an auto-immune disorder) and has had really superior results.

      When I asked my neuro about it, she said that she wasn’t aware of any research studies having been done in regard to it’s use as a possible treatment for CIDP.

      Does anyone have any solid information about using Enbrel as a possible treatment option?

      I Googled “studies on Enbrel for CIDP” and I got these links:


      Hope that helps you find some info.

      It looks like there hasn’t been a whole lot of research into this area, but what little research has been done shows about a 50% success rate.

      To my mind, that’s pretty darn good!

      It seems to me that kind of success rate begs further investigation!
