JAK Inhibition as a Potential Treatment Target in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

Janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) are a group of molecules responsible for signal transduction of multiple cytokines and growth factors in different cell types, involved in the maintenance of immune tolerance. Thus, the dysregulation of this pathway plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of multiple autoimmune, inflammatory, and allergic diseases and is an attractive treatment target. JAK inhibitors (JAKinibs) have been approved in the treatment of multiple autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and ankylosing spondylitis (SPA). In SLE, there is a plethora of ongoing trials evaluating their efficacy, with tofacitinib, baricitinib and deucravacitinib showing promising results, without major safety concerns. In this review, we will discuss the rationale of targeting JAKinibs in SLE and summarize the clinical data of efficacy and safety of JAKinibs in SLE patients.
