Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase (JAK) asset for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Tofacitinib inhibits JAK-dependent cytokine signaling.

JAKs phosphorylate and spark Signal Transducers and Activators of Recap (STATs) which modulate intracellular exertion including gene expression. Tofacitinib prevents the phosphorylation and activation of STATs, therefore, downregulating the product of cytokines by inhibiting JAK.
