Also, this seems like way more of a no brainer for a pharma to jump on than the PGD2 stuff, the fact that they tested this on DP spheres and it had such a huge impact means that there's no way this doesnt have some positive effect for aga. JAK inhibitors clearly impact the follicle positively either way. Come on drug compaines- get on this!! Makes no sense that pharma wuld fund things like bimatoporst, which has such limited efficacy, and not this. Does anyone know of forum members trialling a JAK inhibitor topically? It didn't seem like christiano was particularly concerned about that, seems the drugs are really pretty safe. If I had the money, I'd do it.
    this is also been my point all along. they have tested it on people with AA, vitilgo, people that cannot grow eyebrows and I believe one other skin condition... All without an official clinical trial!

    why can't they try it on people with AGA without a trial??

    she even said in the interview, it either works or it won't and it won't take a long time to find out. so why not try it on a few people for a month or two, especially when the risk of side effects is solo topically.

    screw this I'm making an appointment with my dermatologist next week to see what she thinks about this

    This.
    I'd say this is a bannable offense.

    are you referring to MY post? I am defending her against name calling... I like Dr. Christiano! she's an incredible woman, super intelligent and I love her laugh. Actually I think I might be in love with her!

    Ask her why she thinks these peeps feel free to test this stuff off-trial all the time for other things but won't test it for AGA.

    I'm going to see her because she actually has let me try things off label before. She's the one that gave me the prescription for Dut and Latisse, so fingers crossed she can somehow get this push through

    Listen to from 5:37 in the interview she says, "That, again random observation, was sort of what led us to take the hold Jak inhibitor program and move it out of alopecia areata and into normal hair cycling.” What do you think normal hair cycling means? They are testing on AGA and other forms of hair loss too. The thing is, even if the testing is positive they still need backing and she made it apparent that the crazy crowd funding schemes won't really move things along. I thought that was a good point. I think the interview helped to take the whole conspiratorial aspect out of the equation and focused on the reality of how things work. Emailing these researchers and starting crowdfunding campaigns won't do shit. People on these forums can debate about cures all they want or bother these researchers, or send people to conferences, but it won't change a thing. I'm just glad that Spencer has such intimate access to these researchers. Believe me, when the cure is here, he'll know first. You can hear how these researchers react to him that he's deeply in the know and even friends with these people.

    I agree with you. She is obviously an extremely intelligent woman and has one hell of a sexy voice and giggle
