    Here's a comment I saw on CNN's article about the news:



    Just goes to show that baldness really is disrespected.

    This is huge!

    Couple questions...

    Why hasn't anyone tried this before? I can't believe they just waited until a patient with both alopecia AND psoriasis showed up. If it worked on mice why wasn't it tried on humans sooner?

    Have the guys in Pennsylvania who are slicing genomes and replicating cells heard of this drug? Seems like they look pretty foolish going as deep as they are when this was sitting on the market since 2012.

    This isn't for MPB. Not a huge deal for us.

    I don't think you read this thread thoroughly.... First off the drug in question has gone through clinical trials, which means thousands of patients have tried it. If were any good for AGA (male pattern baldness) then it would have been published much sooner. Second, like many have stated already, this drug may be useful for those with AA (alopecia areata) and AT (alopecia totalis) which are a lot rarer diseases and affect a much smaller proportion (0.1-0.2% of people) compared to AGA which is very common. So the reason why it wasn't shown before was because the number of people with AA and AT were so limited it's likely no one in the trials were affected.

    One thing you should know about mice... They cannot be compared to humans in terms of drug effectiveness and efficacy in like 90% of the cases. Scientists can cure all sorts of diseases ranging from cancer to hair loss in mice but that doesn't mean those results translate to cures in humans. Growing hair on mice is not difficult and has been done many times already.

    Finally to answer your last point, researchers involved in hair loss treatments are in the loop to a greater degree than we are, and are aware of a lot of the research that is going on with other teams around the world, as well as new studies that are being published. I highly doubt those researchers would find out about a new "miracle treatment" at the same time as the rest of us.
