“Monika Was such a nice person, she treated me in the kindest way possible. What I liked about Monika is she was honest with me and she told the truth without hiding anything. She clearly explained what the reason for my hair loss was and made everything clear, also after meeting her I felt more confident that my hair will grow back. I am looking forward to meeting her again in three months for my check up!

Farzana was very informative and kind. She told me that I look nervous (Which was 100% true) and told me not to worry about anything which made me feel a lot better. She was really informative about the treatment course and gave me all the information I need. Such a great person!

The receptionists were awesome! They had a big smile on their face and greeted me in the nice and professional way possible. I don’t know what else to say but they are doing a great job. A big thumbs up from me! The clinic was really well maintained and looked presentable. It also had the facilities that most people will require when the visit the clinic on the other hand the environment of the clinic was calm and quiet. Just the way I like it! Overall you guys are providing a great service and once again a big thumbs up from me!”

Reception and Pharmacy

“Julia was articulate and concise with her consultation. Attentively, she listened to my story and appeared to advise honestly and sincerely rather than tell me that I wanted to hear. Pam was very helpful; also sincere, honest and pragmatic. A short meeting but a good conversation. Reception staff were indeed prompt and polite and the clinic appearance/atmosphere was fine, no issues.”

“I can confirm that I was very happy with my first visit to the Belgravia Centre yesterday. I found Daiva to be very professional and the advice and information she provided me with was both helpful and reassuring. She was also very sensitive to my initial anxieties and concerns. Your treatment advisor, Cherie was equally helpful and pleasant and clearly explained the costs involved with the proposed treatment plan. The reception staff were polite and welcoming.”

Name: Jack

Question: Hello, I’m 21 years of age… 22 end of the month and my hair line is receding rapidly and the confidence is slowly going

Answer: Hi Jack, whilst we understand how devastating hair loss can be on a man’s self-confidence, please do try not to let this get to you.

There are clinically-proven hair loss treatments that can help to stabilise this type of shedding, and promote regrowth . It is also well worth remembering that you are not defined by your hair, or any hair loss you may be experiencing, so perhaps try working on getting your confidence back in addition to dealing with your receding hairline.

At Belgravia we often recommend high strength minoxidil formulations from the range carried at our clinic pharmacies. This treatment is applied directly to the areas affected by Male Pattern Baldness and has been seen to produce significant regrowth results for stubborn areas of hairloss, such as a receding hairline. When used in combination with the clinically-proven once-a-day tablet, finasteride 1mg, this can generally enhance minoxidil-only results in our experience.

You mention that your hairline seems to be receding quickly. Whilst a receding hairline is caused by the hereditary condition Male Pattern Baldness – which is down to genetics – there are a number of lifestyle factors which are believed to influence the rate at which the hair sheds. Commonly, issues including stress, smoking, and deficiencies or imbalances in the diet can accelerate shedding from male pattern hair loss so try to ensure you are eating properly, getting enough sleep and are taking steps to manage any anxieties.

We recommend that, in order to receive personalised treatment and hair growth booster recommendations for a course tailored to your specific requirements, you undergo a tricho-check. This can take place in person, one-on-one at either of our Central London hair loss clinics, or if the locations are inconvenient you can complete our Online Consultation form instead. This way a hair loss specialist can provide you with dedicated advice and support, as well as answering any questions you may have about regrowing your hair. Hopefully knowing that there is help and a solution available will, at the very least, put your mind at rest.

Madelyn Donohoe Alopecia Totalis SwimmingA young American Olympic hopeful has revealed how her love of swimming has helped her to deal with hair loss that has been caused by the autoimmune disorder Alopecia Totalis.

Madelyn Donohoe, 15, who is one of the leading lights in the Knights swim team at Bishop O’Connell College in Arlington, Virginia, first started losing hair when she was 11. Her condition – Alopecia Totalis – is a rare form of Alopecia Areata. However, whilst a diagnosis of Alopecia Areata typically follows evidence of sudden patchy hair loss anywhere on the scalp; a diagnosis of Alopecia Totalis follows total baldness of the entire head, including losing eyebrows and eyelashes.

Madelyn, who has been a keen swimmer since she was six, tells the Washington Post that she has been taking the sport seriously since she was 10, when she started competing in bigger events in places as far afield as New York and Florida.

Caps hide hair loss

As well as being a natural at swimming, regularly winning the competitions she is entered into, what the teen especially loves is the fact that swimming caps are the ultimate leveller. When she wears one in the water, no one could guess that she doesn’t have any hair.

Like others with Alopecia Areata or Totalis, Madelyn’s hair does sometimes grow back. As with all autoimmune hair loss conditions, this ebbing-and-flowing of the disease can be especially frustrating. A typical scenario involves responding with horror at the sight of first losing hair, shock at a diagnosis, relief when hair starts to grow back and then despondency when it starts to fall out again.

Madelyn Donohoe Alopecia TotalisIf hair does grow back, as it does in many cases of Alopecia Areata though this is less common in cases of Alopecia Totalis or Alopecia Universalis, it is also possible that it will never fall out again. The difficult part is that you just don’t know.

Senior Belgravia hair loss specialist, trichologist Leonora Doclis explains: “In cases of alopecia totalis and or universalis hair can spontaneously grow back and it can stay for good. There are cases where it took more than a decade but the hair did eventually grow back without intervention. The likelihood of this permanent regrowth occurring is very low however, although there are currently no available statistics to put a precise figure on the chances.

For Madelyn, the Post article says that when distress over her condition becomes too much, she knows where to turn. “Swimming has always been my safe space,” she says.

In an interview with ABC News the rising star displays a sunny smile and a positive outlook. “There’s a lot worse things in the world,” the inspirations teen explains. “You can’t worry about yourself, you can’t feel bad, you just have to keep going – keep going for your dreams.

Tougher for under 16s

Children often have an especially tough time when it comes to forms of Alopecia Areata, due to bullying and having fewer treatment options than those aged 16 and over. For those affected by the patchy form of Alopecia Areata, which is confined to the scalp only, alopecia areata treatment at Belgravia is possible from 16 years of age upwards. This is because 16 is the lower age requirement for the formulations of high strength minoxidil our specialists recommend applying to the scalp as part of the course.

In the case of Alopecia Totalis, however, this condition currently cannot be treated effectively in either children or adults.

For this reason, and following some recent breakthroughs in the US in particular, a new type of drug is currently being trialled as a possible treatment option, particularly for the more severe types of alopecia. The focus is on a suite of drugs named JAK inhibitors, and initial trials suggest that if the doctors behind these studies can prove long-term safety, efficacy and tolerability – including finding ways to minimise potentially harmful side-effects, new treatments may be forthcoming in the next few years.

Hair Loss in Women - FFA Receding HairlineName: Meryl

Question: I am post-menopausal and because I have an autoimmune disease, I suffer from Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia. I find this very distressing as I have already lost 3 – 4 inches of hair from my hairline. Is there a possibility that eventually this condition can be successfully treated with JAK Inhibitors?

Answer: Hi Meryl, at this stage it is impossible to say for certain whether JAK inhibitors could be developed to treat FFA in the future. They have not yet been cleared for use on Alopecia Areata/Totalis/Universalis – the area of hair loss they are being actively explored for – and are still in the early stages of small scale clinical trials. Also, the stated goal after gaining clearance for treating these conditions is for the drug to be developed further in order to treat androgenetic alopecia (Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss).

There are, however, studies that point to various teams trying to develop cures or treatments for FFA. One study recently investigated corticosteriods for this use, whilst another potential hair loss treatment being explored involves lab-grown skin that contains active hair follicles and could help people with various forms of scarring alopecia – also known as cicatricial alopecia – including FFA.

We will keep the Belgravia blog updated on developments in this area and believe there is a stronger possibility now than ever before of a future treatment being developed for this permanent hair loss condition. Though please do be aware that this is a long process which can take a number of years to pass all necessary safety and efficacy tests. In the meantime, as this is causing you so much distress, you may want to investigate hair replacement systems – modern types of wigs and hair pieces which can be used with your own hair to create the effect of fuller hair. Or even discuss cut options with your hairdresser, who may be able to recommend cuts or styling techniques that can help to make the receding less obvious.

US pharmaceutical company Aclaris is fast establishing itself as one of the leading lights in the race to bring new treatments to market for people with the autoimmune disorder Alopecia Areata, which causes sudden, patchy hair loss.

The Pennsylvania-based company hit the headlines last year when it entered into a deal to acquire Vixen therapeutics, a company set up by Dr Angela Christiano and colleagues at Columbia University in New York, where some of the most ground-breaking work in new Alopecia Areata treatments has been taking place.

Pills Tablets Medication - Hair LossShown promise

The buzzword is “JAK inhibitor” – a suite of existing drugs originally designed to treat certain cancers, rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions, but which have shown promise at regrowing hair in people with severe Alopecia Areata and its related conditions, too.

At the time of the Vixen acquisition, Aclaris surprised the hair loss community by stating that they hoped that JAK inhibitors may also one day be used as a new treatment option for the genetic conditions Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss, too. Up until then, JAK inhibitors had only been mentioned in connection with Alopecia Areata-related hair loss.

Aclaris’ most recent announcement is that its Investigational New Drug application for ATI-50001, an oral JAK inhibitor tablet designed for the potential treatment of Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis, two extreme forms of Alopecia that both lead to total hair loss of the head, has cleared its 30-day review period by the US Food and Drug Administration.

This now paves the way for a Phase 1 clinical trial, which will take place over the coming months and for which 12 volunteer test subjects have been recruited.

We are excited to have achieved this important milestone,” said Christopher Powala, Chief Operating Officer, via a company press release.  “We look forward to developing ATI-50001 as a potential oral treatment for these severe phenotypes of Alopecia Areata.”

Christopher Powala - Aclaris

Christopher Powala, COO of Aclaris

To say that Aclaris seems keen on bringing JAK inhibitor-based products for Alopecia Areata and its related conditions to market would be something of an understatement. As well as licensing a patent portfolio from Columbia University, Aclaris has licensed several other patents and patent applications involving novel selective JAK 1/3 inhibitors, including a patent portfolio from Rigel Pharmaceuticals that covers ATI-50001 as well as ATI-50002, a topical formulation also being developed as a potential treatment for Alopecia Areata.

Japanese patent

Additionally, they have licensed a patent portfolio from JAKPharm and Key Organics which is directed to novel covalently binding, highly-selective JAK 3 inhibitors. Interestingly, Aclaris states that the Columbia portfolio includes “a recently issued patent in Japan directed to pharmaceutical compositions comprising ruxolitinib, baricitinib or other JAK inhibitors for use in treating Alopecia Areata, androgenetic alopecia and other hair loss disorders.”

It should be noted that, whilst there are effective alopecia areata treatment options already available for adults and over 16’s, there are no such reliable Alopecia Universalis and Totalis treatments. For this reason, the hair loss community is watching all new developments – including the JAK inhibitor research – with interest, although it is expected to be several years before any new drugs, either topical or oral, make it to market.

An American youngster stunned an old friend whose hair loss was caused by the autoimmune disorder Alopecia Areata by telling her that he was growing his hair to give to her.

Boy Grows Hair to Help Friend With AlopeciaAccording to the Tech Times, the thoughtful boy, 10-year-old Tyler Boone, had been wondering why his friend Gabby Ruiz, 12, always kept her head covered up. When he was told that she had a condition that caused patchy hair loss, Tyler said, “Well it’s just hair. I can grow hair.

So he did.

Real hair wigs

After two years of growing, Tyler – from Georgia – had amassed 12 inches of hair which he tied back in a pony tail. In a touching moment, this was cut off by Gabby and sent off to a US-based charity named Children With Hair Loss. Like the UK’s popular Little Princess Trust, they make real-hair wigs for children who have lost theirs to Alopecia Areata and also during chemotherapy.

The Tech Times article notes that Alopecia Areata affects almost 7 million people in the US, and that around 2.1 per cent of the population will be affected in their lifetime. UK levels are thought to be broadly comparable, meaning that around a million people in the UK have Alopecia Areata or one of its more severe sister conditions Alopecia Totalis, which causes all the hair on the head to fall out, or Alopecia Universalis, which adds the loss of all body hair.

For those aged 16 years of age and over Alopecia Areata treatment can often provide successful regrowth, particularly when an early diagnosis is made. The patchy hair loss that typifies this condition is not as severe as is associated with the other versions of this. Treatment for Alopecia Totalis and Universalis, however, has low success rates and viable options are few and far between.

For this reason, medical teams around the world are currently working on a number of potential new treatments for people with these extreme types of Alopecia Areata, with some extremely promising results already seen by teams who have used JAK inhibitor drugs (originally developed to treat certain cancers, rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases) to regrow hair.

Children with alopecia

Unfortunately, children have an especially raw deal when it comes to Alopecia Areata and its related conditions. They are frequently subjected to teasing and bullying at school, something which many children and former victims have sought to highlight with the hope of initiating change and educating people about the conditions to help increase tolerance. Furthermore, there are fewer treatment options available to children with alopecia than there are for adults.

At Belgravia we use high strength minoxidil preparations as part of comprehensive alopecia areata treatment courses for clients aged 16 and over. However, this approach is unsuitable for anyone under 16 years of age.

This is when charitable organisations such as the Little Princess Trust in the UK and Children With Hair Loss in the USA can prove invaluable in the support and real hair wigs they offer. Additionally, charities such as Alopecia UK also have terrific support networks available to those affected by autoimmune hair loss – either directly or indirectly – regardless of age.

Name: Ramandeep

Question: Hi I am 21 years older and I have always felt my hair falling out for years. The doctors did blood tests and there wasn’t anything significant but my hair has thinned immensely over the years e.g my pony tail is half as thick as it used to be. I have been noticing hair loss from the front of my head over about 1-2 years and now it actively falls out whilst doing anything and has thinned a lot. Since a year ago my eyebrows and eyelashes also randomly fall out throughout the day. I want to know if there is anything I can do to protect my remaining hair. Very rarely use heat products (once every 2-3 months) and have been using a shampoo recommended by my doctor plantur 39, but my hair is still thinning?

Thinning Hair - Thin Ponytail - Women's Hair LossAnswer: Hi, Ramandeep. The symptoms you describe here sound like classic signs of Female Pattern Hair Loss. This is a permanent, genetic hair loss condition which displays outwardly as thinning hair in those affected.

Although it only affects the top of the scalp, it tends to be most noticeable at the parting – which may start to look increasingly wider, with more scalp visible – and at the hairline. Thinning temples are particularly common, as is a general drop in hair density, or thickness. Many women tend to find that their ponytail gets thinner as a result, and is a common sign of this type of hair loss.

The reason for this is that people with pattern hair loss have a predisposed sensitivity to a hormone byproduct in the body called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This gathers around the top of their scalp and binds to hair follicles, gradually weakening and destroying them. The outwardly visible signs of this bio activity are increased hair thinning and, for men affected by the male equivalent, baldness may occur eventually although this is far less common in women.

Technically genetic hair loss can start to appear any time following puberty, though it has traditionally started to occur later in life, particularly for women. However, in recent years this hair loss condition has been seen to affect increasingly younger women from their 20’s upwards. This is believed to be a result of modern living as, although the cause is genetic, factors such as stress and diet are believed to accelerate the process.

There are effective hair loss treatment options for this condition that can help to prevent further shedding and regrow hair. Whilst it is important to wash the hair regularly in order to maintain good scalp hygiene, shampoo will not treat thinning hair so it is unsurprising that you mention this has had no effect. Shampoo is not absorbed into the skin for long enough and also does not contain the only clinically-proven women’s hair loss treatment – minoxidil.

At Belgravia we tailor treatment programmes to each individual client, with women’s courses being focused around appropriate high strength minoxidil formulations. Where suitable, various hair growth boosters can also be added in to provide a fully rounded approach to helping maximise the hair’s potential.

Whilst this can explain the issues you are having with hair thinning, we would advise you to speak with your doctor if your eyebrows and lashes are falling out. Whilst this is associated with the autoimmune conditions Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis, these also cause total baldness of the scalp so are unlikely to be the cause.

Following on from several encouraging trials into the use of JAK inhibitors as possible future treatments for severe Alopecia Areata-related hair loss last year, an American company is moving its own study into a modified version of one such drug up a notch.

Concert Pharmaceuticals, headquartered in Lexington, Massachusetts, were encouraged enough by results from a Phase 1 single and ascending dose study into the use of a drug named CTP-543, which is a deuterium-modified anolog of the JAK inhibitor ruxolitinib, to announce a Phase 2a study. They are specifically looking at how it works as a treatment option for people with hair loss caused by the autoimmune disorder Alopecia Areata.

Ruxolitinib (Brand Name: Jakafi)

The new drug being tested, CTP-543 is based on Ruxolitinib (brand name: Jakafi)

Bone marrow cancer drug

Ruxolitinib is a bone marrow cancer drug that has been approved to treat cancer patients since at least 2011, but as with all JAK inhibitors there have been some concerns about side-effects. The Janus Kinase (JAK) inhibitor suite of dugs have nonetheless sparked huge interest among the medical community not least because they have proven to show promise at treating some conditions they weren’t designed for. Indeed, their use on people with the more sereve types of Alopecia Areata were discovered almost by accident.

Concert Pharma believe that their modified version of ruxolitinib is potentially a first-in-class new drug candidate, thanks in no small part to some of the attributes of deuterated drugs, one of which is an increased half-life – the time the drug stays in the bloodstream- which the company states can prolong a compound’s pharmacokinetic profile, which is an increase in the half-life of the compound in the body.

“This may decrease the number of doses that a patient is required to take per day or provide more consistent exposure of the compound in comparison to a similar non-deuterated compound,” the company states in a recent press release, adding that in certain cases, improved consistency of exposure can lead to enhanced efficacy and/or tolerability.

Well-tolerated so far

The Phase 2a trial is to last 28 weeks and will assess the efficacy of four doses on people with Alopecia Areata: 4, 8, 12 and 16mg of CTP-543 twice daily. Concert say that their last trial showed the drug to be ‘well-tolerated’ across all dose groups with no serious adverse events reported. Details as to how the drug will be administered – orally or topically – are not provided in the press release circulated by the company.

The reason this and other tests into JAK inhibitors as possible treatments for Alopecia Areata is that extreme forms of the condition, specifically Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis, which lead to total baldness of the scalp, as well as additional hair loss to the face and entire body respectively, are currently impossible to treat. This is in contrast to the scalp-only, patchy hair loss caused by Alopecia Areata which has a number of treatment options already available.

At Belgravia we have found topical applications of high strength minoxidil, from the range available from our in-clinic pharmacies, paired with appropriate boosters and individually tailored to each client’s needs, to be widely effective. This simple, easy-to-use treatment routine has produced significant regrowth for many clients, a selection of whom can be seen in our Alopecia Areata Treatment Success Stories gallery.

It is encouraging to see so many new potential treatments for Alopecia Totalis and Universalis being developed in order to give sufferers the same regrowth opportunities as those affected by Alopecia Areata. However, it is worth bearing in mind that these new drugs are all still in the early stages of testing – a process which can take many, many years to complete. As such it will most likely be a number of years – assuming they do actually meet all safety, efficacy and tolerability requirements – until these drugs get to the point where widespread release could be considered.
