Enbrel: and its use in the presence of a neurologic disease as Parkinson or in an elderly patient? A question of risk/benefit ratio, some biologicals need to be used with caution above age 65, enbrel is one of them, also in patients with demyelinating disease, Parkinson isn't, so this delicate and complex question need to be answered in a clinical context, the best to do so is the treating doctor/team,
