Women of childbearing potential should consider the use of appropriate contraception to avoid becoming pregnant during etanercept therapy and for 3 weeks after discontinuation of therapy1
Etanercept crosses the placenta and has been detected in the serum of infants born to female patients treated with etanercept during pregnancy. The clinical impact of this is unknown; however, infants may be at increased risk of infection. Administration of live vaccines to infants for 16 weeks after the mother’s last dose of etanercept is generally not recommended1
