Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disorder that progressively spreads to various parts of the body. The autoimmune disorder causes the body’s white blood cells to attack its tissues. A patient’s joints, blood vessels, lungs, heart, skin, and eyes are most commonly involved. Rheumatoid arthritis also triggers inflammation in the lining of joints, which can result in damage, pain, and swelling that eventually leads to joint deformities and bone erosion. The disorder causes patients to suffer from frequent aggravated symptoms, which are followed by periods of remission. When rheumatoid arthritis is not diagnosed early or properly treated, it can lead to permanent deformities, severe disabilities, and systemic complications.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, and the treatment options for patients with rheumatoid arthritis can seem overwhelming. Pfizer Inc.’s Xeljanz (tofacitinib) received the United States Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis in 2012. The drug reduces activity in the immune system by blocking the action of enzymes called Janus kinases. These enzymes play a major role in the course of inflammation and damage of joints that occurs when arthritis symptoms flare. By blocking Janus kinases, Xeljanz significantly reduces the inflammation and damage caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Xeljanz is the first drug of its kind and is commonly prescribed to patients who do not respond to other drugs that are normally taken. However, after the clinical trial ended, the Food and Drug Administration issued a vital Drug Safety Communication. The agency found that Xeljanz use significantly increased the risk of blood clots, cancer, serious heart-related problems, and even death.

Doctors have prescribed Xeljanz to over 140,000 patients to relieve their painful rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. Regretfully, many users of the drug got much more than they bargained for. Pfizer must be held accountable for carelessly neglecting to warn doctors and patients about the grave risks associated with its drug.
