Summary of "Tofacitinib for the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis."

Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are inflammatory immune mediated conditions which can cause considerable disability and reduced quality of life. Management can be complex as clinical heterogeneity may lead to different treatment pathways. Tofacitinib is a novel, oral janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor with proven efficacy in rheumatoid arthritis. Areas covered: This review analyses recent studies of tofacitinib in psoriatic disease treatment. The relevant literature was identified using clinicaltrials.gov, PubMed and Google Scholar. Tofacitinib efficacy was demonstrated in PsA by the OPAL Broaden and OPAL Beyond phase III studies, and received FDA and EMA approval. Tofacitinib was superior to placebo for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in the OPT Pivotal 1 and 2, OPT Retreatment studies, but FDA approval was declined for this indication based on issues of clinical efficacy and long-term safety. Expert Commentary: Tofacitinib is an important oral drug for the treatment of PsA. However, the long-term safety data requires further evaluation. Tofacitinib and other JAK inhibitors show potential to broaden the treatment options in PsA and other inflammatory conditions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of inflammatory arthritis associated with PSORIASIS, often involving the axial joints and the peripheral terminal interphalangeal joints. It is characterized by the presence of HLA-B27-associated SPONDYLARTHROPATHY, and the absence of rheumatoid factor.

A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.

A recombinant version of soluble human TNF receptor that binds specifically to TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR and inhibits its binding with endogenous TNF receptors. It prevents the inflammatory effect of TNF and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS.

A polyethylene-glycolated Fab' fragment of TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and neutralises it in a dose-dependent manner. It also inhibits the production of lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF-ALPHA and IL-1 BETA and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS and PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS.
