Clinical Trial Description

This project aims to test the effectiveness of ITACITINIB in sporadic Hemophagocytosis Lymphohistiocytosis (HLHs). The existence of an IFN-γ signature, in HLHs, is a strong rational for testing the use of a JAK1 inhibitor in the treatment of HLHs. We hypothesize that ITACITINIB, an inhibitor of JAK-1, may be a therapeutic of interest in the treatment of non-severe HLHs in replacement of corticosteroids by inhibiting the production and effects of IFN-γ but also those of other pro-inflammatory cytokines. The use JAK-1 inhibitor instead of corticosteroids in patients with HLHs without any sign of severity is justified by its probable lesser toxicity and higher efficiency. In this proof of concept study, because of the vital risk associated with severe HLH and the efficacy of Etoposide in this setting, we will first include only patients with moderate HLHs ;
