European Commission (EC) has approved XELJANZ® (tofacitinib citrate) 5 mg twice daily (BID) in combination with methotrexate (MTX) for the treatment of active psoriatic arthritis

Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) announced today that the European Commission (EC) has approved XELJANZ® (tofacitinib citrate) 5 mg twice daily (BID) in combination with methotrexate (MTX) for the treatment of active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in adult patients who have had an inadequate response or who have been intolerant to a prior disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) therapy.1 XELJANZ is the first and only oral Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor to be approved in the European Union (EU) for the treatment of adults with active PsA. In 2017, XELJANZ in combination with MTX was approved in the EU for the treatment of moderate to severe active rheumatoid arthritis in adult patients who have responded inadequately to, or who are intolerant to one or more DMARDs.2

“People living with psoriatic arthritis may experience a variety of symptoms, making the condition particularly difficult to diagnose and treat,” said Angela Lukin, Regional President, Inflammation and Immunology, Pfizer. “We are proud that we are now able to offer XELJANZ as an option to adult patients living with active psoriatic arthritis in the European Union.”
