Description And Band Names

Tofacitinib is a medication classified as a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor. It works by targeting intracellular enzymes called JAKs, which play a role in transmitting signals involved in immune cell function and other cellular processes. By inhibiting these enzymes, tofacitinib helps regulate the immune system’s response, particularly in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polyarticular course juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and ulcerative colitis.
