How does RINVOQ work in the body?
With ankylosing spondylitis (AS), your overactive immune system mainly attacks your spine and may cause inflammation that contributes to back pain and stiffness.
RINVOQ is a JAK (Janus kinase) inhibitor that regulates your overactive immune system to help stop the attack. It works inside your cells to block certain signals that are thought to be an underlying cause of AS inflammation.
JAK Inhibitors for ankylosing spondylitis
Because JAK inhibitors, including RINVOQ, affect the immune system, they can lower the ability to fight infections and may cause other serious side effects. It's important to talk to your healthcare provider about the possible side effects of prescription treatments.
If you’re still experiencing AS symptoms after a TNF blocker like HUMIRA® or ENBREL®, RINVOQ, a JAK inhibitor, is different and may help.
