What Jakafi is?
Jakafi is a kinase inhibitor indicated for treatment of:
- intermediate or high-risk myelofibrosis, including primary myelofibrosis, post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis and post-essential thrombocythemia myelofibrosis in adults.
- polycythemia vera in adults who have had an inadequate response to or are intolerant of hydroxyurea.
- steroid-refractory acute graft-versus-host disease in adult and pediatric patients 12 years and older.
What Ruxolitinib is?
Ruxolitinib (trade names Jakafi and Jakavi) is a drug for the treatment of intermediate or high-risk myelofibrosis, a type of myeloproliferative disorder that affects the bone marrow, and for polycythemia vera (PCV) when there has been an inadequate response to or intolerance of hydroxyurea. Ruxolitinib has also been shown to improve cases of chronic graft versus host disease in patients following a bone marrow transplant.
Ruxolitinib is a janus kinase inhibitor (JAK inhibitor) with selectivity for subtypes JAK1 and JAK2. Ruxolitinib inhibits dysregulated JAK signaling associated with myelofibrosis. JAK1 and JAK2 recruit signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) to cytokine receptors leading to modulation of gene expression.
