Yale scientists stumble upon the cure for hair lose?

Scientists at Yale University may have discovered the cure for hair lose in an FDA-approved arthritis drug.

During an eight month trial using the arthritis drug, a 25-year-old man with almost no hair on his body grew a full head of hair, and then some, after being treated with the drug. Best part of all, no noticeable side effects. The amount of hair the man grew back is astounding for an eight month period.

The 25 year old patient suffers from a rare, highly visible disease known as alopecia universalis, which causes the loss of almost all body hair and has no cure or approved long term treatment.

According to scientists at Yale who oversaw the trial, the patient a full head of hair plus eyebrows, eyelashes, and facial, armpit, and other hair.

Brett A. King, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine and senior author of a paper reporting the results online in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology had this to say…

“The results are exactly what we hoped for. This is a huge step forward in the treatment of patients with this condition. While it’s one case, we anticipated the successful treatment of this man based on our current understanding of the disease and the drug. We believe the same results will be duplicated in other patients, and we plan to try.”

The drug, called tofacitinib citrate, has been submitted by King for a clinical trials. If all goes well, this may be the first step to not only curing alopecia universalis in men, but also in treating baldness once and for all.
