    Why does AMGN insist enbrel is safe for dermatology?

    I guess I don't understand why they would push the safety of their product given reports from credible sources that at least those patients with a predisposition to MS can be negatively impacted. I understand doctors can initiate prescription of enbrel for psoriasis and there seems to be a bit of loophole in the situation. But there is a risk here that the effects of enbrel will start showing up after years of use and the incidence of MS like symptoms in such patients will climb appreciably.

    Hopefully doctors will stop prescribing enbrel except for crippling conditions. I am looking into whether there is a hint of this in the declining growth of enbrel in dermatology.

    I think the company and the market should be more cautious here.

    Just my opinion
