This open, randomized clinical trial recruited 100 male patients suffering from this form of hair loss. They were divided into 4 groups corresponding to the drug(s) given to them.

Group I – 1 mg per day of oral finasteride (30 patients)
Group II – 1 mg/day oral finasteride + 2% topical minoxidil solution (36 patients)
Group III – 2% topical minoxidil solution (24 patients)
Group IV – 1 mg/day oral finasteride + 2% ketoconazole shampoo
The patients were placed on the drug combinations throughout the one-year duration of the study.

The results of this study showed all 4 groups of patients experienced significant hair growth. However, the best results were observed in patients in Group II followed by Group IV, I and III.
