Abstract

The mechanisms of inflammation and cancer are intertwined by complex networks of signaling pathways. Dysregulations in the Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK/STAT) pathway underlie several pathogenic conditions related to chronic inflammatory states, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Historically, the potential application of JAK inhibition has been thoroughly explored, thus triggering an escalation of favorable results in this field. So far, five JAK inhibitors have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of different diseases. Considering the complexity of JAK-depending processes and their involvement in multiple disorders, JAK inhibitors are the perfect candidates for drug repurposing and for the assessment of multitarget strategies. Herein we reviewed the recent progress concerning JAK inhibition, including the innovations provided by the release of JAKs crystal structures and the improvement of synthetic strategies aimed to simplify of the industrial scale-up.
