S016 - JAK Inhibitors: A New Frontier in Dermatology

Friday, March 1; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify and describe a new class of medications that will be useful in dermatology
  • Utilize JAK inhibitors for the treatment of alopecia areata, vitiligo, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, sarcoidosis and granuloma annulare, and dermatomyositis and lupus.
  • Summarize the potential adverse effects of JAK inhibitors


The recent development of Janus kinase inhibitors has led to new therapeutic options in dermatology. The application of Janus kinase inhibitors to common dermatologic diseases, with significant unmet medical need, will be presented, including the results of clinical trials and case series. Safety will be discussed. The audience for this session will be dermatologists whose practice involves the care of patients with alopecia areata, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, sarcoidosis, dermatomyositis and lupus.
