What Does This Study Tell Us?

A recent analysis of hair count data in four multicenter studies evaluating both Minoxidil Topical Solution 2% and 5% (two studies in females and two in males) has substantiated that hair loss can be stabilized with Minoxidil Topical Solution use. The hair count stabilization data, based on a calculation of increased or unchanged number of non-vellus hairs compared to baseline, showed that for males the stabilization (percent of subjects) was 90% and 77% for MTS 2% users, and 96% and 75% for Minoxidil Topical Solution 5% users.

Study Information and Results:

A post-marketing surveillance study in over 11,000 minoxidil topical solution (MTS) 2% users with androgenetic alopecia demonstrated that 4 out of 5 subjects experienced a slowing or stopping of hair loss with Minoxidil Topical Solution (Rogaine/Regaine).

Although subjects opinion of treatment results were considered to be important, further corroboration of these results was conducted and other data have been generated to support stabilization of hair loss.

A recent analysis of hair count data in four multicenter studies evaluating both Minoxidil Topical Solution 2% and 5% (two studies in females and two in males) has substantiated that hair loss can be stabilized with Minoxidil Topical Solution use. The hair count stabilization data, based on a calculation of increased or unchanged number of non-vellus hairs compared to baseline, showed that for males the stabilization (percent of subjects) was 90% and 77% for MTS 2% users, and 96% and 75% for Minoxidil Topical Solution 5% users.

For females, the percentages were 87% and 88% for Minoxidil Topical Solution 2% users, and 85% and 89% for Minoxidil Topical Solution 5% users. In addition, using hair count data in subjects treated with MTS 2% and 3% for up to 5 years (Olsen et al [JAAD 1990;22:643-46), it was estimated that hair loss stabilized in 4 out of 5 (80%) subjects.

An evaluation of global photography, carried out by two blinded dermatology experts for a registration trial of Minoxidil Topical Solution 5% in men, further supports stabilization of hair loss. One expert evaluated hair loss stabilization to be 94% in both Minoxidil Topical Solution 2% and 5% Minoxidil Topical Solution groups.

The second expert reported stabilization in 85% of the subjects using MTS 2%, and 83% using Minoxidil Topical Solution 5%. In conclusion, multiple studies support the ability of Minoxidil Topical Solution to stabilize hair loss in 4 out of 5 users.

Conclusions:

Conclusions: 4 out of 5 Minoxidil 2% and Minoxidil 5% users were shown to maintain HAIR COUNT after 5 years of use. This implies an 80% effectiveness rate at maintaining hair count on Minoxidil Those of you who are familiar with the other well established Minoxidil studies will realize that these results differ greatly.
