Conclusion: Treatment of RA patients with filgotinib led to the decrease of multiple cytokines involved in various aspects of the inflammatory process. Reductions in IL-6 and IL-1β establish the anti-inflammatory activity of filgotinib. Treatment effects on IL-2, IL-6, IL-7, IL-12 and IFN-γ that play a key role in CD4+ T-cell differentiation and expansion further highlight the anti-inflammatory effects of filgotinib, likely by limiting the promotion of TH1, TH2 and TH17 cells. Finally, effects on innate immunity, through MIP-1β and GM-CSF decrease, were also mediated by filgotinib. Taken together, these data further demonstrate the anti-inflammatory activity of filgotinib in line with its efficacy observed in RA patients.
