Dermatomyositis is a rare inflammatory disease which can occur in any age. However, it is most common in children age group of 5 to 15 years, and people of late 40's and early 60's. Some of the most common symptoms observed in patients with dermatomyositis are erythema, inflammatory myopathy, myalgia, progressive muscle weakness, eyelid abnormality, and periorbital edema. The cause of the disease is still unknown; however, researchers and scientists have theorized that autoimmune reactions and viral infections can be accountable for the disease. Some of the major companies involved in development of therapeutic agents for the treatment of dermatomyositis include Pfizer Inc., Neovacs S.A., Corbus Pharmaceuticals Holdings Inc., MedImmune LLC, and others. For instance, Pfizer Inc. is in the process of developing tofacitinib, as a Janus kinase inhibitor for the treatment of dermatomyositis.
