Researchers at Yale University in America are recruiting people with Alopecia Areata the autoimmune disorder that leads to patchy hair loss for a further study into the use of a drug which has already shown itself to be very promising.
Having already seen impressive regrowth in one-third of the patients who took a JAK inhibitor drug named tofacitinib orally, the team at Yale now want to see if they have better results with a topical version of tofacitinib, specifically, an ointment to be rubbed into the scalp. Topical application could also potentially mean a decreased risk of serious side-effects.
The study is being led by Dr Brett King, a name frequently associated of late with some of the most pioneering research into new treatments for Alopecia Areata and its related conditions.
