2013-01-21 15:32:23 - New Pharmaceuticals market report from GlobalData: "Xeljanz (tofacitinib) (Rheumatoid Arthritis) Forecast and Market Analysis"

GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, Xeljanz (tofacitinib) (Rheumatoid Arthritis) Forecast and Market Analysis. The RA market is currently very dynamic, with the November 6, 2012 FDA approval of Pfizer's Xeljanz (tofacitinib) and novel oral therapies awaiting approval such as: Eli Lilly's anti-BAFF, tabalumab and JAK1,2 inhibitor, baricitinib, and Rigel/AZ's SYK inhibitor, fostamatinib. These compounds will challenge the current biologics in the attempt to dislodge the stronghold of the TNF inhibitors, if their safety and efficacy profiles are proven once they enter the market.

Pfizer has developed Xeljanz (tofacitinib;formerly known as tasocitinib), an oral, small-molecule inhibitor of JAK3 kinase for the treatment of RA, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, transplant rejection, and dry eye

syndrome. Xeljanz (tofacitinib) is the most advanced kinase inhibitor in development for RA and is a first-in-class product. Xeljanz (tofacitinib) targets the JAK pathway, thus disrupting the intracellular signal pathway through which cytokines regulate immune responses.
