A here-to-for unrealized application of the arthritis drug tofacitinib citrate helped a 25-year-old man grow a full head of hair after Alopecia universalis left him completely hairless. Other types of alopecia have been known to be the cause of hair loss for our clients (see our page here on Alopecia Areata specifically) but the very rare Alopecia universalis can cause sufferers to lose all their body hair. In the case of this one patient treated here though Yale researchers came up with specific-and it was indeed effective-targeted treatment that saw the patient re-grow his hair eyebrows, eyelashes, facial hair and body hair.
Eight months into the treatment Dr. Brett A King, assistant professor of dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine is saying: “There are no good options for long-term treatment of alopecia universalis…the best available science suggested this might work, and it has.”
“The results are exactly what we hoped for,” he added.
