Real-World Comparative Effectiveness and Safety of Tofacitinib and Baricitinib in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Arthritis Res Ther. 2021;23(1):197

In a real-world setting, tofacitinib and baricitinib have comparable continuing efficacies and safety profiles in patients with RA.It is important to determine the differences and similarities of JAK inhibitors in a real-world setting so that the optimal agent can be administered. However, until now, no published data of a direct comparison among these agents in RA have been available. With this in mind, Iwamoto, et al. compared the efficacy and safety of tofacitinib with those of baricitinib by...

Efficacy and Safety of Peficitinib (ASP015K) in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and an Inadequate Response to Methotrexate: Results of a Phase III Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial (RAJ4) in Japan

Ann Rheum Dis 2019 DOI: 10.1136/annrheumdis-2019-215164

Peficitinib (PEF) 100 and 150 mg demonstrated robust clinical and structural efficacy in patients with RA who have an inadequate response to MTX. In Japan, two JAK inhibitors, TOF and BARI are currently available for RA patients with an inadequate response to conventional therapies. This randomized phase 3 study (RAJ4), assessed the efficacy and safety of two PEF doses in combination with MTX compared to PBO, in Japanese MTX-IR. Patients were randomized 1:1:1 to PBO, PEF 100 mg and 150 mg with M...
