    N=1 anecdote here but my partners mum, who has quite severe treatment-refractory RA + immunodeficiency, is doing really well on JAK inhibitors after many failed previous attempts.

    I'm a bit jealous she can just pop a pill for her biologics when I still have to stab myself in the leg! :laugh:

    I think this is one of the two jak-inhibitors that's supposed to be tested for M.E., filgotinib the other.

    JAKs are involved in lots of things though. I'd hope we could find a more specific treatment than that.. A girl can dream.
