Authors: Wiese MD, Manning-Bennett AT, Abuhelwa AY Abstract Introduction: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory auto-immune disease that can lead to permanent disability and deformity. Despite current treatment modalities, many patients are still unable to reach remission. Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 4 (IRAK-4) inhibitors are novel agents designed to suppress immune signalling pathways involved in inflammation and joint destruction in RA. Four IRAK-4 inhibitors have entered clinical trials.Areas covered: This review summarizes the current stage of development of IRAK-4 inhibitors in clini...
