Patient who seven years hadn’t a single body hair due to alopecia, his hair grew within eight months.
For all who don’t have hair, baldness drug is only unattainable dream. All previous attempts to find such a drug, generally ended thus prevent further hair loss, but none has been so successful to start growing new hair.
But at Yale University was made a new pioneering treatment to all who have problems with baldness or alopecia, it gives them new hope, published Huffington Post.
Scientists from Yale, successfully, with the help of a cure for arthritis, made in a 25-year-old man, who was bald and hairless on the body to re-grow his hair, eyelashes and other fibers.
Scientists gave the patient the cure “tofacitinib citrate” who suffered from the disease alopecia uneverzalis and because of that disease he was completely bald and has hairless body. Within just eight months all of his hair and beard has grown, which he hadn’t have for seven years.
“The result is what we hoped it would be, and represents a major step forward in the treatment of those suffering from these diseases,” said Dr. Brett A. King, professor of dermatology at Yale and author of a study published in the latest edition of the magazine Journal of Investigative Dermatology.
This patient, whose name is not known, though it suffered from alopecia, he also suffered from psoriasis, and the drug tofacitinib was approved by the US Agency for medicines and food. The same drug had previously been used on mice.
In any case, the result is fascinating. From full baldness at the beginning of treatment, after 8 months there was a overgrowth of thick hair, beard and eyelashes, that the patient did not have for years.
The patient took 10 mg of tofacitinib daily for 2 months, then another 15 mg of the drug in the next three months. Most importantly, during the treatment the patient did not have any side effects.
