JAK Inhibitors in RA: Applying Evidence-Based Strategies in Clinical Decision-making

November 14 from 7:30 pm 9:00 pm EST

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Grand Ballroom, Salon H, 5th Floor

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory arthritis that can cause deformity, loss of function, and decreased quality of life. Since the 1990s, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) have been the foundation for RA treatment, initially with synthetic DMARDs and expanding thereafter to include biologic DMARDs and Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors. JAK inhibitors have established efficacy in RA, but recent safety concerns associated with these drugs, such as an increased potential risk of cancer and cardiovascular events, have healthcare professionals and patients concerned about their use in RA. This program will include a robust discussion of the evidence-based application of recent efficacy and safety data for JAK inhibitors in RA to equip healthcare professionals in helping patients attain low disease activity/remission and improved quality of life.
