SAFETY

Safety considerations1:

Serious Infections: Patients treated with RINVOQ are at increased risk for developing serious infections that may lead to hospitalization or death. These infections include tuberculosis (TB), invasive fungal, bacterial, viral, and other infections due to opportunistic pathogens. Most patients who developed these infections were taking concomitant immunosuppressants, such as methotrexate or corticosteroids.

Mortality: A higher rate of all-cause mortality, including sudden cardiovascular (CV) death, was observed with a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor in a study comparing another JAK inhibitor with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients ≥50 years of age with at least one CV risk factor.

Malignancies: Lymphoma and other malignancies have been observed in RINVOQ-treated patients. A higher rate of malignancies (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer [NMSC]), lymphomas, and lung cancer (in current or past smokers) was observed with another JAK inhibitor when compared with TNF blockers in RA patients. Patients who are current or past smokers are at additional increased risk.

Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events: A higher rate of CV death, myocardial infarction, and stroke was observed with a JAK inhibitor in a study comparing another JAK inhibitor with TNF blockers in RA patients ≥50 years of age with at least one CV risk factor. Current or past smokers are at additional increased risk.

Thrombosis: Thrombosis, including deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and arterial thrombosis have occurred in patients treated with JAK inhibitors used to treat inflammatory conditions. A higher rate of thrombosis was observed with another JAK inhibitor when compared with TNF blockers in RA patients.

Hypersensitivity: RINVOQ is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to upadacitinib or any of its excipients.

Other Serious Adverse Reactions: Hypersensitivity Reactions (anaphylaxis and angioedema), Gastrointestinal Perforations, Laboratory Abnormalities (neutropenia, lymphopenia, anemia, lipid elevations, liver enzyme elevations), and Embryo-Fetal Toxicity.
