You should read more carefully. The article says "baldness (alopecia areata)", not "male pattern baldness". JAK inhibitors aren't exactly news, their efficacy has been shown for other forms of baldness (alopecia areata), but not for Androgenetic Alopecia/male pattern baldness so far. Doesn't mean that they won't work at all, but as of now we simply don't know if (and don't think that) JAK inhibitors are going to help with male pattern baldness.

Unless she is trying to hope up her story. The dr stated that actives hairs to grow as soon as 3 days. This ends to be the same for Androgenetic Alopecia stuck in this mode. Not an exact quote but hey I think it might work.

My hair loss has been like an allergic reaction and I have Androgenetic Alopecia. Many of us have itching, red bump etc. why can't it be an auto-immune related at least for some of not all

Looks like you should read more carefully.

Lol we All know some folks on the payroll by either pharma or hair transplant industry. They will never admit it will even when it will get approved eventually. Nothing according to them besides propecia and a good old stripscar works LMAO

It takes someone who has never experienced baldness in his late teens (or at all) to post bull**** like that. Pay them no mind Fred, their opinions hold no weight.

Ive been on a JAK inhibitor, for health reasons, for a year now. It has done nothing for my male pattern baldness. Ive been on the big 3 for almost a decade and it has done much more. Coincidentally for the last 4-5 months Ive been shedding/losing hair more then ever.

Yes, because the billions and billions of dollars going into cancer are NOT ENOUGH and the piddly amount of funds that go into alopecia is way too much it deserves... which is almost NOTHING.

That right there, is one hell of an example of entitlement!

@Renee1: Indeed, I did not read carefully. Sorry. We had a flood of JAK inhibitor threads one year ago when the status still was that they don't help, but some people didn't understand the difference between AA and Androgenetic Alopecia. Seems to have changed, so you're right.

"All that glitters is not gold."

seeing excessive use of hair perms makes me cautious. Besides, Dr. Christiano has always said she started his research on hair because she had problems himself
I wish her the best of luck

Theres this guy whos putting on a cream version he made from crushed pills himself. So far no results. I was really hoping this was the cure for that perifollicular inflammation which I think is a key role in male pattern baldness
