U.S. Food And Drug Administration Approval Of XELJANZ® (tofacitinib Citrate) And Invitation To Media Briefing From Pfizer

Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for XELJANZ ® (tofacitinib citrate) 5 mg twice daily for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who have had an inadequate response or intolerance to methotrexate. XELJANZ may be used as monotherapy or in combination with methotrexate or other non-biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). XELJANZ should not be used in combination with biologic DMARDs or with potent immunosuppressives, such as azathioprine and cyclosporine.

XELJANZ (ZEL'jans') is the first approved RA treatment in a new class of medicines known as Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors and the first new oral DMARD approved for RA in more than 10 years.
