A review of JAK-STAT signalling in the pathogenesis of spondyloarthritis and the role of JAK inhibition
Rheumatology (Oxford). 2021. Epub ahead of print. doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keab740.JAK inhibitors are likely to become an important part of the overall treatment paradigm for spondyloarthritis (SpA).Although not fully understood, the pathogenesis of SpA is complex and thought to involve both environmental and genetic factors that together elicit a chronic inflammatory response involving the innate and adaptive immune systems. Several different cytokines, TNF, IL-17A, IL-12/23 and IL-23, which are directly/indirectly affected by JAK molecules, are involved in the pathogenesis o...
