XELJANZ® (tofacitinib citrate) Receives Marketing Authorisation in the European Union for the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Active Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) | Business Wire

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) announced today that the European Commission (EC)

has approved XELJANZ® (tofacitinib citrate) 5 mg twice daily

(BID) oral tablets in combination with methotrexate (MTX) for the

treatment of moderate to severe active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in

adult patients who have responded inadequately to, or who are intolerant

to one or more disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). XELJANZ

can be given as monotherapy in case of intolerance to MTX or when

treatment with MTX is inappropriate. XELJANZ belongs to a new class of

therapies called Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors.

“With the approval of tofacitinib, rheumatologists and patients in the

EU now have an additional treatment option for the management of

rheumatoid arthritis that can be taken with or without methotrexate,”

said Ronald van Vollenhoven, Professor of Rheumatology and Director of

the Amsterdam Rheumatology and Immunology Center ARC. “This is an

important advancement for the rheumatology community as up to one-third

of people with rheumatoid arthritis may not achieve a response with

current treatments and a number of patients may not sustain a response.”

The EC approval is based on a submission package that included results

from the Phase 3 Oral Rheumatoid Arthritis triaLs

(ORAL) global development program and real world data. Results from this

clinical trial program conducted in a diverse RA patient population

demonstrated the efficacy and safety profile of XELJANZ both with and

without MTX for the treatment of moderate to severe RA. The XELJANZ

development program includes more than eight years of safety data from

the long-term extension studies representing over 21,100 patient-years

of drug exposure to date.

“With a heritage of more than 60 years of providing rheumatoid arthritis

treatment options, Pfizer has been a leader in helping to improve the

lives of people with inflammatory conditions,” said Angela Lukin,

Regional President, Inflammation & Immunology, Pfizer Innovative Health.

“The approval of XELJANZ in Europe demonstrates Pfizer’s ongoing

commitment to developing medicines that address unmet needs for people

living with chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.”

Pfizer is working with the appropriate authorities in European Union

(EU) countries to support reimbursement and availability of XELJANZ with

the goal of helping to ensure people who may benefit from XELJANZ have

access to it. With the approval in the EU, XELJANZ is now approved for

use in more than 80 countries worldwide.

About Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

RA is a chronic, inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes a range of

symptoms, including pain and swelling in the joints, particularly those

in the hands, feet and knees. Although the exact cause of RA is unknown,

it is considered to be an autoimmune disease, because the immune system

in people with RA mistakes the body’s healthy tissues for a threat and

attacks them. Some people are at increased risk for developing RA,

including people with a family history of RA, smokers and women. Three

times as many women are affected by RA compared to men. RA affects

approximately 17.6 million people worldwide and more than 2.9 million

people in Europe. It can develop at any time during adulthood, but it

usually occurs between 40 and 70 years of age.

About XELJANZ (tofacitinib citrate)

XELJANZ is a JAK inhibitor, a new class of drugs for the treatment of RA

in the EU. JAK inhibitors act on the JAK pathway by working inside the

cell to disrupt a signaling pathway believed to play a role in the

inflammation associated with moderate to severe active RA.

Tofacitinib is included in a number of RA treatment recommendations,

including those published by the European League Against Rheumatism

(EULAR), the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) as well as Asia

Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology (APLAR).

Pfizer is committed to advancing the science of JAK inhibition and

enhancing understanding of XELJANZ through robust clinical development

programs in the treatment of immune-mediated inflammatory conditions.

XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR U.S. Label Information

XELJANZ (tofacitinib citrate)/XELJANZ XR (tofacitinib citrate)

extended-release is a prescription medicine called a Janus kinase (JAK)

inhibitor. XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR is used to treat adults with moderately to

severely active rheumatoid arthritis in which methotrexate did not work

well. XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR may be used as a single agent or in combination

with methotrexate (MTX) or other non-biologic disease-modifying

antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Use of XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR in combination

with biologic DMARDs or potent immunosuppressants, such as azathioprine

and cyclosporine, is not recommended.

  • It is not known if XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR is safe and effective in people

    with hepatitis B or C.

  • XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR is not for people with severe liver problems.

  • It is not known if XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR is safe and effective in

    children.

Important Safety Information

  • XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR can lower the ability of the immune system to

    fight infections. Some people can have serious infections while taking

    XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR, including tuberculosis (TB), and infections caused

    by bacteria, fungi, or viruses that can spread throughout the body.

    Some people have died from these infections. Healthcare providers

    should test patients for TB before starting XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR, and

    monitor them closely for signs and symptoms of TB and other infections

    during treatment. People should not start taking XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR if

    they have any kind of infection unless their healthcare provider tells

    them it is okay.

  • People may be at a higher risk of developing shingles.

  • XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR may increase the risk of certain cancers by

    changing the way the immune system works. Lymphoma and other cancers,

    including skin cancers, can happen in patients taking XELJANZ/XELJANZ

    XR.

  • The risks and benefits of treatment should be considered prior to

    initiating XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR in patients with chronic or recurrent

    infection; who have been exposed to tuberculosis; with a history of a

    serious or an opportunistic infection; who have resided or traveled in

    areas of endemic tuberculosis or endemic mycoses; or with underlying

    conditions that may predispose them to infection.

  • Viral reactivation, including cases of herpes virus reactivation

    (e.g., herpes zoster), was observed in clinical studies with XELJANZ.

  • Use of live vaccines should be avoided concurrently with

    XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR. Update immunizations in agreement with current

    immunization guidelines prior to initiating XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR therapy.

  • Some people who have taken XELJANZ with certain other medicines to

    prevent kidney transplant rejection have had a problem with certain

    white blood cells growing out of control (Epstein Barr

    virus-associated post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder).

  • Some people taking XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR can get tears in their stomach

    or intestines. This happens most often in people who also take

    nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, or

    methotrexate.

  • XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR should be used with caution in patients who may be

    at increased risk for gastrointestinal perforation (e.g., patients

    with a history of diverticulitis), or who have a narrowing within

    their digestive tract. Patients should tell their healthcare provider

    right away if they have fever and stomach-area pain that does not go

    away or a change in bowel habits.

  • XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR can cause changes in certain lab test results

    including low blood cell counts, increases in certain liver tests, and

    increases in cholesterol levels. Healthcare providers should do blood

    tests before starting patients on XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR and while they

    are taking XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR, to check for these side effects. Normal

    cholesterol levels are important to good heart health. Healthcare

    providers may stop XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR treatment because of changes in

    blood cell counts or liver test results.

  • Use of XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR in patients with severe hepatic impairment

    is not recommended.

  • Patients should tell their healthcare providers if they plan to become

    pregnant or are pregnant.

It is not known if XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR will harm an unborn baby. To

monitor the outcomes of pregnant women exposed to XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR, a

registry has been established. Physicians are encouraged to register

patients and pregnant women are encouraged to register themselves by

calling 1-877-311-8972.

  • Patients should tell their healthcare providers if they plan to

    breastfeed or are breastfeeding. Patients and their healthcare

    provider should decide if they will take XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR or

    breastfeed. They should not do both.

  • In carriers of the hepatitis B or C virus (viruses that affect the

    liver), the virus may become active while using XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR.

    Healthcare providers may do blood tests before and during treatment

    with XELJANZ/XELJANZ XR.

intolerance to methotrexate (MTX). It may be used in combination with

MTX or other non-biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).

XELJANZ® is the first JAK inhibitor approved for RA patients.

JAK inhibitors act on the JAK pathway by working inside the cell to

disrupt a signaling pathway believed to play a role in the inflammation

associated with moderately to severely active RA.

“The introduction of the first oral JAK inhibitor for RA in China,

XELJANZ®, builds upon Pfizer’s legacy as an innovator in

inflammation and immunology and provides a new option for physicians and

adult patients with moderately to severely active RA who may prefer an

oral treatment for this chronic condition,” said Mr. Guohong Shan, China

Country Lead, Pfizer Innovative Health.

Penis Operate May possibly Be Impacted by Rheumatoid Arthritis

Lots of youthful guys imagine arthritis is a difficulty only for older women of all ages – and that fantasy may perhaps be perilous to their penis perform. When it is true that rheumatoid arthritis is three instances as probable to take place in women of all ages, a major amount of guys make up the one.five million Us residents that go through from it – and not all of people guys are older. Men who want to work out correct penis care need to have to know that even guys in their 20s can be in the early phases of rheumatoid arthritis. They also need to have to know just how this condition could impact their a great deal-prized penis perform.

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic illness of the joints induced by an autoimmune reaction. For some explanation, a person’s body starts to interpret the linings of the joints as “overseas” – that is, not a natural section of the body and as a result a menace – and it develops means to attack people linings in a misguided try to defend the body.

This success in at times major ache and stiffness in the joints, primarily people in the arms and feet.

Penis perform

Having arthritis is lousy plenty of, but it can also negatively impact a man’s penis perform. A single 2012 medical review identified that virtually two-thirds of guys with rheumatoid arthritis documented getting some diploma of erectile dysfunction.

So why does arthritis have an effects on penis perform? The reasonable assumption would be that the immune method is attacking the penis by itself, but that’s not particularly the situation. The penis is not a joint and so the immune method doesn’t have it on its misguided radar method.

Rheumatoid arthritis triggers inflammation, and it is thought that this inflammation may perhaps lengthen to penile blood vessels. The inflammation prevents the blood vessels from operating in the correct method, so that when a gentleman results in being aroused and blood is supposed to hurry into the penis, it is not in a position to do so appropriately.

To make matters even worse, some drugs used to take care of arthritis are thought to probably effects penis perform (and not in a positive way).

Other concerns

But the inflammation is not the only problem that guys with arthritis may perhaps experience. Scientific studies also indicate that guys with rheumatoid arthritis commonly also have reduced amounts of testosterone, which in transform can lead to a frustrated libido.

In addition, numerous people today with arthritis obtain it affects them mentally and emotionally as effectively. Sufferers are a lot more probable to experience increased amounts of depression, and this is also a variable both equally in reducing sex drive and in influencing erectile perform.

Finally, the major ache linked with arthritis can participate in a job. It may perhaps be tough to get and/or preserve a workable sexual place because of to the pains in other areas of the body, decreasing the pleasure of or even the bodily operating of a sexual experience.

Cure

Adult men who suspect they have rheumatoid arthritis really should immediately stop by a health practitioner in order to get a prognosis. Early prognosis indicates that therapy can be initiated before, which will increase the possibility of a positive outcome.

Adult men also need to have to support preserve penile perform, irrespective of whether they have arthritis or not, by paying out correct focus to the over-all wellness of the penis. Every day application of a top drawer penis wellness crème (wellness industry experts suggest Man1 Gentleman Oil, which is clinically demonstrated moderate and risk-free for skin) is proposed to support preserve a healthier piece of gear. Adult men like to feel that their penis has a specific diploma of firmness, and a crème with vitamin C can be handy in that regard. Vitamin C is an critical element of collagen generation, which is handy in retaining penile firmness. The most effective cremes also include L-arginine, an amino acid that will help penile blood vessels dilate and be a lot more receptive to a more substantial inflow of blood.
