Scientists have completely reversed hair loss in three people by giving them a drug normally used to treat bone marrow disorders. The patients had alopecia areata - a condition that can cause severe, patchy baldness that is difficult to treat.
But after five months of taking the medication ruxolitinib, all three saw total hair re-growth. The findings from Columbia University Medical Center are published in the journal Nature Medicine.
