A cure for baldness could be on the horizon after a new drug was found to restore hair growth in around four months. This breakthrough offers hope to millions, specifically those people diagnosed with alopecia.

The autoimmune disease causes patchy and, in some cases, total hair loss. But scientists believe they could reverse the hair loss thanks to the new treatment just discovered.

The discovery marks the first step towards a cure for pattern baldness, with the next stage of trials investigating the drug’s effect on the most common form of hair loss in men.

The researchers at Columbia University Medical Center found 75 per cent of patients with moderate to severe alopecia showed “significant hair regrowth” after taking the drug ruxolitinib.

By the end of the treatment the average hair regrowth among patients was 92 per cent.

Dr Julian Mackay-Wiggan, associate professor at the university and a dermatologist at New York-Presbyterian said: “Although our study was small, it provides crucial evidence that JAK inhibitors may constitute the first effective treatment for people with alopecia areata.

“This is encouraging news for patients who are coping with the physical and emotional effects of this disfiguring autoimmune disease.”
