Thromboembolic Concerns Raised After Evidence Points to High Risk of Adverse Events Caused by Popular Drugs
According to AJMC.com, one popular drug frequently prescribed to people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and another that treats myelofibrosis and polycythemia vera has been linked to life-threatening thromboembolic medical events. The research shows that tofacitinib, widely known by the brand name Xeljanz and ruxolitinib, known by the brand name Jakafi, account for hundreds of cases of Thromboembolic adverse effects as noted in the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations’ Adverse Effect Reporting System (FAERS). The research indicates that Janus kinase inhibitors such as Xeljanz and Jakafi should be further investigated for a causal link between thromboembolic events.

Patients who took Janus kinase inhibitors and developed these thromboembolic adverse effects suffered through numerous hospitalizations, near-death experiences, and some people died as a result of the thromboembolic event.
Despite the mounting evidence, the FDA has done virtually nothing to warn physicians and patients about the potentially life-threatening problems they could encounter while taking a Janus kinase inhibitor. Strangely, the FDA has written an opinion about another medicine in the Janus kinase inhibitor class called baricitinib in which the FDA acknowledges that there is a possible link between this class of medications and thromboembolic medical emergencies. Additionally, food and drug regulators in Japan and in the European Union where baricitinib is on the market require the drug to contain stern warnings about the potential side effects of the drug. Notwithstanding, the FDA has not required manufacturers to attach stern warnings to their products about the possibility of suffering from a thromboembolic event which taking the medication.
