It really no, It is extremly important since, it fact, is the first medication ever that was created to be use it to treat acne and Androgenetic Alopecia. None finasteride or minoxidil were created for Androgenetic Alopecia .You guys are seriously arguing about it being the first approved topical aa it's so petty and fills up threads with nonsense
Why is important ? Because it was even done by small lab, which show to big labs, if is a success, that they should actually invert money in new molecules to treat Androgenetic Alopecia .
Besides, there will be , soon, tons of new studies and tons of new studies done every year about this drug on Androgenetic Alopecia . How many studies can you find of, for example, topical spironolactone in Androgenetic Alopecia ? one , may be ?
And ketoconazole topical ( not shampoo ) ? Only 1 ! the Japanese one.
Now, you see what is the BIG difference that this antiandrogen is actually approve to be use it as topical ?!
