Contribution of interleukin 1beta and KM loci to alopecia areata. (1/140)

Alopecia areata is a common skin disease in which proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1beta may play a pathogenic role. In this study, we examined the distribution of genotypes of an IL-1beta single base change polymorphism at position +3953 in patients with alopecia areata. The distribution of immunoglobulin kappa light chain (KM) genotypes was similarly examined. The data obtained showed that the IL-1beta and KM loci act cooperatively to significantly increase susceptibility to alopecia areata.  (+info)

Successful treatment of alopecia areata-like hair loss with the contact sensitizer squaric acid dibutylester (SADBE) in C3H/HeJ mice. (2/140)

A type of hair loss closely resembling human alopecia areata has been described in C3H/HeJ mice. In order to test the assumed analogy with human alopecia areata, we investigated the efficacy of treatment with the contact allergen squaric acid dibutylester. In 12 C3H/HeJ mice with alopecia areata an allergic contact dermatitis was induced and elicited weekly on one side of the back by topical applications of squaric acid dibutylester. Overt hair regrowth was observed only on the treated side of the back in nine of 12 mice. Histopathologic examination revealed a change in the distribution of the inflammatory infiltrate from a dense perifollicular lymphocytic infiltrate around the mid and lower regions of hair follicles in untreated skin to a uniform presence in the upper dermis in treated skin. Immunohistomorphometric studies revealed that treatment with squaric acid dibutylester increased the CD4+/CD8+ ratio from approximately 1:2 in untreated alopecia areata to 1:1 in treated alopecia areata. Additional immunohistochemical investigations showed an aberrant expression of major histocompatibility complex class I, major histocompatibility complex class II and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 on keratinocytes of the mid and lower parts of hair follicles in untreated alopecia areata. In successfully treated skin ectopic major histocompatibility complex class I and II expression was clearly reduced, whereas intercellular adhesion molecule 1 expression showed only minor changes. In conclusion, alopecia areata-like hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice responded to treatment with the contact sensitizer squaric acid dibutylester analogous to human alopecia areata. Moreover, successful treatment changes the aberrant expression of major histocompatibility complex class I and II in a way similar to that observed in human alopecia areata. These observations support the concept that alopecia areata-like hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice can be utilized as an appropriate model for the study of human alopecia areata.  (+info)

Role of cytotoxic T cells in chronic alopecia areata. (3/140)

Cytokines play a role in alopecia areata. We used immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization studies to demonstrate the persistence of pro-inflammatory as well as apoptotic mechanisms in skin biopsies from patients with chronic alopecia areata. In situ hybridization allows the visualization of the distribution of immunocompetent cells in vivo. We studied skin biopsies from 11 untreated alopecia areata patients and two normal controls. In situ hybridization was performed on frozen sections using 35S-radio-labeled riboprobes, specific for IL-1beta, IL-2, IL-6, INFgamma, and granzyme B mRNA. Immunohistochemistry was carried out using an anti-IL-1beta monoclonal antibody, and a monoclonal antibody directed against the human Fas protein. We demonstrated the presence of cells labeled with IL-1beta, IL-6, INFgamma, and granzyme B antisense probes. Similarly, cells labeled with anti-IL-1beta were found in 10 of 11 cases. The labeled cells were located in the mononuclear peri- and intrafollicular infiltrate. Cells expressing granzyme B were found in close contact with the follicle. Fas positivity was demonstrated in four of four cases at the level of the cytoplasmic membrane of the hair follicle keratinocytes. These results, based on visualizing the labeled cells, demonstrate that pro-inflammatory cytokines are produced by the mononuclear cell infiltrate in close contact with follicles in alopecia areata. Furthermore, they demonstrate for the first time that apoptotic mechanisms involving granzyme B and Fas-Fas ligand pathways may play a major role in the persistence of chronic alopecia areata.  (+info)

Practical management of hair loss. (5/140)

OBJECTIVE: To describe an organized diagnostic approach for both nonscarring and scarring alopecias to help family physicians establish an accurate in-office diagnosis. To explain when ancillary laboratory workup is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Current diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for hair loss are based on randomized controlled studies, uncontrolled studies, and case series. MEDLINE was searched from January 1966 to December 1998 with the MeSH words alopecia, hair, and alopecia areata. Articles were selected on the basis of experimental design, with priority given to the most current large multicentre controlled studies. Overall global evidence for therapeutic intervention for hair loss is quite strong. MAIN MESSAGE: The most common forms of nonscarring alopecias are androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium, and alopecia areata. Other disorders include trichotillomania, traction alopecia, tinea capitis, and hair shaft abnormalities. Scarring alopecia is caused by trauma, infections, discoid lupus erythematosus, or lichen planus. Key to establishing an accurate diagnosis is a detailed history, including medication use, systemic illnesses, endocrine dysfunction, hair-care practices, and family history. All hair-bearing sites should be examined. A 4-mm punch biopsy of the scalp is useful, particularly to diagnose scarring alopecias. Once a diagnosis has been established, specific therapy can be initiated. CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis and management of hair loss is an interesting challenge for family physicians. An organized approach to recognizing characteristic differential features of hair loss disorders is key to diagnosis and management.  (+info)

Treatment with an anti-CD44v10-specific antibody inhibits the onset of alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice. (6/140)

A murine CD44v10-neutralizing antibody has been reported to impair delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions. Because alopecia areata is characterized by a delayed-type hypersensitivity-like T cell mediated immune response, we addressed the question whether an anti-CD44v10-antibody influences the onset of alopecia areata. Therefore, we used the C3H/HeJ mouse model with the induction of alopecia areata in unaffected mice by the grafting of lesional alopecia areata mouse skin. Six grafted mice were injected (intraperitoneally) with anti-CD44v10, six grafted mice with anti-CD44standard, and six with phosphate-buffered saline only. After 11 wk phosphate-buffered saline injected animals on average had developed alopecia areata on 36.8% of their body. The onset of hair loss was slightly delayed and its extent reduced to 17.2% of their body in anti-CD44standard-treated mice. By contrast, five of six anti-CD44v10-treated mice did not show any hair loss and one mouse developed alopecia areata on only 1% of the body. Immunohistochemical examination revealed a marked reduction of perifollicular CD8+ lymphocytes and, to a lesser degree, CD4+ cells as well as a decreased expression of major histocompatibility complex class I on hair follicle epithelium in anti-CD44v10-treated mice as compared with phosphate-buffered saline or anti-CD44 standard-treated mice. Our data show that anti-CD44v10 is able to inhibit the onset of alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice. This might be accomplished by an anti-CD44v10-triggered impairment of immune cell homing (e.g., CD8+ T cells), resulting in a decrease of their number in target tissues.  (+info)

Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist allele 2 and familial alopecia areata. (7/140)

Alopecia areata affects 1%-2% of the population and is hypothesized to be an autoimmune, organ specific T-cell mediated reaction directed against the human hair follicle. It is characterized by loss of hair in patches (alopecia areata) with progression in some individuals to total loss of scalp hair (alopecia totalis) or to loss of all scalp and body hair (alopecia universalis). The interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RN) gene was found to be associated with more severe clinical outcome in several chronic inflammatory diseases, including alopecia areata. The IL-1RN*2 allele was found to be associated with alopecia areata severity in a British case-control study. In this paper, we analyzed alopecia areata probands in a family-based sample (n = 131 parent-offspring trios) to study the association between alleles of the IL-1RN and various phenotypes of alopecia areata. In considering all patients with any form of alopecia areata, no association was found with IL-1RN. IL-1RN*2 allele was not associated with alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis. A borderline association was observed between IL-1RN and patchy alopecia areata but it was not statistically significant (p =0.06). We also observed an association between IL1-RN*1 allele and patchy alopecia areata (p =0.045).  (+info)

Melanocyte-associated T cell epitopes can function as autoantigens for transfer of alopecia areata to human scalp explants on Prkdc(scid) mice. (8/140)

Alopecia areata is a tissue restricted autoimmune condition affecting the hair follicle, resulting in hair loss. The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that the autoantigen of alopecia areata is melanocyte associated. Potential autoantigens were tested in the human scalp explant/Prkd(scid) CB-17 mouse transfer system. Scalp T cells from lesional (bald) alopecia areata scalp were cultured with antigen-presenting cells, and antigen, along with interleukin-2. The T cells were then injected into autologous lesional scalp grafts on SCID mice, and hair regrowth was measured. Hair follicle homogenate was used as an autoantigen control. T cells cultured with melanoma homogenate induced statistically significant reduction in hair growth (p <0.01 by ANOVA). HLA-A2-restricted melanocyte peptide epitopes were then tested with lesional scalp T cells from HLA-A2-positive alopecia areata patients. Melanocyte-peptide-activated T cells significantly reduced the number of hairs regrowing in two experiments with six patients (p <0.001 by ANOVA). Injected scalp grafts showed histologic and immunochemical changes of alopecia areata. The most consistent peptide autoantigens were the Gp100-derived G9-209 and G9-280 peptides, as well as MART-1 (27-35). Melanocyte peptide epitopes can function as autoantigens for alopecia areata. Multiple peptides were recognized, suggesting epitope spreading.  (+info)

Alopecia areata is the loss of hair in circular or oval patches from the scalp or elsewhere such as eyebrows, beard, etc. Thebald patches are usually of the size of a five-rupee coin or one-rupee coin. Complete loss of hair may also occur in some individuals although it is not very common. Having bald patches on ones head, beard and eyebrows can be very distressing. Alopecia areata is a fairly common skin disorder and about 1 percent of the population is affected at any given time. Unlike other kinds of hair loss, alopecia areata is a reversible hair loss as the follicles ( a structure that encloses the root of the hair) of hair are not damaged. Alopecia areata does not affect patient health in any other way.

Alopecia areata is a condition in which hair is lost either from part of the scalp, all of the scalp, or the entire body, and it affects 1% to 2% of the population. It is thought to be an autoimmune disease and in some cases the disease is hereditary. The Alopecia Areata Registry will collect information and blood samples from clinically well-characterized patients with these three forms of alopecia areata: alopecia partialis (patchy loss of the scalp hair), alopecia totalis (total loss of all scalp hair), and alopecia universalis (complete loss of all hair everywhere on the body). This will be a collection of patients in multi-generational families, twins, single patients with patchy, persistent transient alopecia areata or long-standing alopecia totalis/universalis and with controls (persons unaffected and not related to alopecia patients). Information from these patients will be used to search the human genome for disease-associated loci and/or genes. Researchers interested in doing ...
Background: Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune disease, where there are many topical and systemic therapies, during which hair growth appears in a uniform pattern. In certain cases, hair regrowth takes a polycyclic pattern simulating a target, so called targetoid phenomena. Objective: To screen all cases of treated alopecia areata for hair targetoid regrowth pattern. Methods: This is an observational study, was conducted in Dermatology Department of Baghdad Teaching Hospital in Iraq, during the period, August 2017 to October 2017. All cases treated for alopecia areata with IM triamcinolone 20 - 40 mg injection every 2 weeks with topical clobetasone ointment and zinc sulfate 2 mg/kg/day for 2 months, were examined for the targetoid concentric hair regrowth pattern. Result: Among all cases of alopecia areata, seven patients were recorded to have the targetoid concentric hair pattern, which seen 2 - 4 weeks after therapy, their ages ranged from 4 to 25 years old with a mean 14.5, all of them were
NEW YORK - A team of investigators led by Columbia University Medical Center has uncovered eight genes that underpin alopecia areata, one of the most common causes of hair loss, as reported in a paper in the July 1, 2010 issue of Nature. Since many of the genes are also implicated in other autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes - and treatments have already been developed that target these genes - this discovery may soon lead to new treatments for the 5.3 million Americans suffering from hair loss caused by alopecia areata.. According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, alopecia areata is a common autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere. It affects approximately two percent of the population overall. While it affects both men and women equally, it is diagnosed more often in women, since they are more likely to seek treatment.. Among the eight genes, one stands out for its potential role in the onset of alopecia ...
A:. This is a great question.. Base on the information in your query it appears that this child has Alopecia Areata (AA) or its more severe form Alopecia Capitis. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease that might progress to involve large areas of the scalp in some cases. This disorder can improve spontaneously and without any treatment. When this does not occur a physician must monitor it and consider various approaches. There is no perfect treatment that can guarantee full recovery in resistant cases of AA.. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has been in the news in recent years. PRP has been suggested for treatment of several types of hair loss conditions. However at this time, there is not sufficient level of solid evidence to prove its effectiveness for hair loss conditions..

Alopecia treatment centre is capable of managing a large number of patients with alopecia areata, which can be a challenging task as various hazard elements have been ensnared in its etiology. No definitive cure has been set up until some time back and alopecia areata treatment in India has concentrated fundamentally on containing malady action. Treatment course can go from 1 to 6 months, however prolonged courses ought to be dodged auxiliary to the various reactions of these medications particularly when kids are dealt with. Systemic steroids are consequently not favored in the treatment of alopecia areata with the exception of a few cases of a short course as it were. Yet, it is exceedingly prescribed that contraindications and symptoms ought to, be that as it may be talked about finally with patients considered for the treatment. ...
Both boys and girls can get alopecia areata, which can begin at any age. It is believed to happen when the bodys immune system, which normally fights infections, attacks the hair follicles (the area of skin hair grows from) as if they were a threat. This disrupts hair growth.. Alopecia areata often starts as one or more round, smooth bald patches on the scalp. While uncommon, it is possible for all the hair on the head to fall out. Often, hair grows back within several months, even without treatment. Hair may grow in fine or white at first, but usually returns to its original texture and color with time.. People with alopecia areata may lose and grow back their hair more than once, either in the same patches as before or in different patches. Almost always the hair grows back; very rarely, the hair loss is permanent.. Alopecia areata also can affect the fingernails and toenails. White spots may appear on the nails; the nails may feel pitted, grooved, or rough; or they may be thin and split ...
Background: Autoimmune mechanisms are involved in the etiology of Alopecia areata. It is also shown that Selenium has some effects on regulation of autoimmune mechanisms. Objective: To compare the plasma level of Selenium between those with and without Alopecia areata. Patients and Methods: In this case-control study, 29 patients with Alopecia areata referred to Razi hospital in Tehran, and 29 persons without this disease were selected consequently. Plasma level of Selenium was determined and compared between the groups. Results: The mean age of cases was 24.9±10.5 and of controls was 29.1±10.5 years. In both groups 15 (51.7%) patients were male and 14 (48.3%) of them were female. The mean plasma Selenium level in cases was significantly lower than what was observed in controls (62.1±13.3 g/l vs. 88.3±13.2 g/l, P|0.0005). Conclusion: This study indicated that mean plasma Selenium level in patients with Alopecia areata was lower than those without this disorder. It is recommended to evaluate the

There is no good trial evidence that any treatments provide long-term benefit to patients with alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis.. Alopecia areata is a condition that causes patchy hair loss. The size and number of patches and progress of the disease can vary between people. It can affect the entire scalp (alopecia totalis) or cause loss of all body hair (alopecia universalis). Sometimes the condition will get better on its own, but in some cases it can get worse. Treatments include a variety of different creams or lotions applied to the scalp such as topical or oral corticosteroids, minoxidil and some light-based therapies. Some of the skin treatments can have unpleasant side effects such as itching or hair growth in areas of the body away from where the cream was applied. Oral steroids may cause serious side effects. Also, there is no guarantee that any hair regrown during treatment will persist once the treatment is finished.. We found 17 randomised controlled trials ...
Published May 11 2015. Many people with Graves Disease and Hashimotos Thyroiditis experience hair loss. In most cases the imbalance of thyroid hormone is responsible for the hair loss. However, other causes of hair loss include sex hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and certain medications. However, another possibility is a condition called alopecia areata, which is commonly found in people with autoimmune thyroid conditions.. So what is alopecia areata? This is an autoimmune condition which involves damage of the hair follicles. This condition usually begins with one or two patches of hair loss on the scalp, although hair loss can also occur in the beard, eyebrows, arms, and legs (1). Some people will experience hair loss of the entire scalp, which is known as alopecia totalis (2). If it involves the whole body then this is known as alopecia universalis (2). For many people the hair will eventually grow back, although this isnt the case with everyone.. What Causes Alopecia Areata? ...
Alopecia areata is characterized by patchy scalp hair loss which occasionally affects every hair follicle on the scalp (alopecia totalis), or body (alopecia universalis).. The disease usually occurs between the the ages of adolescence and 30 years, but can appear at any age, affecting both sexes equally. Alopecia Areata has a rapid onset but tends to spontaneously reverse.. The cause of Alopecia Areata is unclear, however, genetic factors, auto-immune mechanisms, and the occurrence of stressful and/or emotional problems shortly before the hair loss are all thought to influence the condition.. Treatments for the disease include topical sensitizers, steroid shots, squaric acid dibutyl ester, diphencyprone, and hypnotherapy.. ...
Alopecia areata - hair loss which starts with a bald patch. Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease where the body turns against itself. In about a third of cases, the first bald patch clears up quickly and never returns. In those less lucky, the condition develops into alopecia totalis where all scalp hair is lost, sometimes along with the eyebrows and eyelashes. A fifth of all cases become alopecia universalis where all hair on the entire body falls out. Other people are plagued by alopecia areata all their lives, with patches occurring and reoccurring again and again.. ...

Alopecia areata is one of the most common cause of non-scarring alopecia. The pathogenesis is still unclear, however, it is believed to be an autoimmune disease. This disease is not a life-threatening condition but it has a significant psychological impact to patients quality of life.. Many triggers have been proposed such as viral infection, stress and neurologic factors. There are many studies show the correlation between disease activities and neurotransmitters level. Substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide play major role in early stage of disease. These substances cause imbalance of CD4/CD8 lymphocyte in pathologic site and loss of immune privilege of hair follicles.. The conventional treatment of alopecia areata with intralesional corticosteroid injection might treat the end of pathogenesis process.. There is no therapeutic intervention for the origin of disease. Fortunately, botulinum toxin A could be a novel treatment of alopecia areata. The botulinum toxin A demonstrates ...
Most Amgen Scholars only begin to learn about their summer research topic in their college years. For Trévon C. Gordon, his research topic began in high school, when he began to suffer from a condition called alopecia areata, which prevents him from growing hair. Since then, understanding the autoimmune disease has become his mission, and he spent his Amgen Scholars summer researching ways to treat it with a cutting-edge researcher who herself has alopecia areata.. Whenever asked about my alopecia I always try to show distinction between what I have - alopecia areata - and male-pattern baldness - androgenic alopecia - by saying I have an autoimmune disease, Gordon explains. Usually the follow-up question is something along the lines of is that genetic? or will you have this for your entire life?, to which I try to explain how the disease is caused by an immune attack on the hair follicle and that the hair can regrow at any time once the autoimmune response has ended.. Gordon first ...
Ive shared my thoughts as well as previous data on these new so called JAK inhibitors (Ruxolitinib and Tofacitinib) in the treatment of alopecia areata. I was interested to read this morning a study showing benefit of ruxolitinib at a dose of 20 mg twice daily in a 35 year old man with two autoimmune diseases - vitiligo and alopecia areata. Hair growth started after 4 weeks and was quite significant by 3 months. Ruxolitinib is an oral medication that is FDA approved for treatment of bone marrow cancer known as myelofibrosis. The drug inhibits a pathway within cells known as the JANUS KINASE pathway and ruxolitinib specifically inhibits Jak 1 and Jak2.

This is really our first complete human study and the results really have been quite astounding compared to the previously available treatments Alopecia areata is an autoimmune form of hair loss where the body attacks the hair follicles and it begins to fall out We enrolled patients with at least thirty percent hair loss and we felt this was a good threshold because we wanted to capture those patients who really were very significantly affected by their hair loss And we found that 9 out of 12 patients had at least 50% regrowth So the genetic studies that weve been working on in the lab for the past five or so years were really critical in pointing for the first time at a potential pathway to target for alopecia areata So, unexpectedly, the JAK signaling pathway really emerged as a targetable pathway for this disease directly from our genetic studies In alopecia areata the hair follicle is quietened by the inflammatory response right around the hair follicle and so the JAK inhibitors block the ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Vitiligo and alopecia areata are common, disfiguring skin diseases. Treatment options are limited and include nontargeted approaches, such as corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, narrow band ultraviolet B phototherapy, and other immune-modifying agents. The purpose of this article is to review shared, novel mechanisms between vitiligo and alopecia areata, as well as discuss how they inform the development of future targeted treatments. RECENT FINDINGS: Vitiligo and alopecia areata are both autoimmune diseases, and striking similarities in pathogenesis have been identified at the level of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Increased reactive oxygen species and high cellular stress level have been suggested as the initiating trigger of the innate immune system in both diseases, and genome-wide association studies have implicated risk alleles that influence both innate and adaptive immunity. Most importantly, mechanistic studies in mouse models of vitiligo and
Alopecia Areata is caused when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. The condition is not typically permanent and the reasons for this arent actually clear.

Finding Best Homeopathic Medicine For Alopecia Areata: Clinical Update and Review of Repertory Rubrics. Why Homeopathic Treatment is Best For Alopecia Areata? Best Homeopathic Medicine for Treating Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune non-scarring hair loss disorder. AA can be acute, recurrent, or chronic. Current therapeutic options for AA are limited, and there is no effective prevention for recurrent AA. We have previously shown a correlation between the expression of HSP70 (HSPA1A/B), a heat shock protein involved in the inflammatory response, and the onset of AA in the C3H/HeJ mouse model. In this study, we tested the effects of quercetin, a bioflavonoid with anti-inflammatory properties, on AA development and HSP70 expression in the C3H/HeJ model. Mice with spontaneous AA were treated with subcutaneous quercetin or sham injections. Hair regrowth was observed in lesional areas in all the quercetin-treated mice, but in none of the sham-treated mice. In addition, non-alopecic C3H/HeJ mice were heat-treated to induce alopecia, along with quercetin or sham injections. Whereas 24% of the heat-treated mice with sham injections developed alopecia, none of the mice receiving quercetin injections did
M Harms,. Alopecia areata is a frequent cause of hair loss. The origin of disease is not fully understood. However there are indications for a T-cell mediated autoimmune process. Genetic, immunologic and psychologic factors are important for the outbreak of disease. Most patients show localized patches of acute hair loss, where regrowth is observed spontaneously or with simple topical treatment within few months. In up to 15% of patients severe forms of disease can develop with total scalp (alopecia totalis) or scalp and body hair loss (alopecia universalis). There are only few known risk factors for development of a severe form. Although spontaneous remission is possible in these cases, it occurs rarely and treatment is difficult. Multifocal alopecia areata responds to intravenous high-dose corticosteroids. Topical immunotherapy with diphenylcyclopropenone (DPC) or PUVA therapy may be effective in longstanding and widespread disease. The unpredictable course of disease is a major handicap for ...
Alopecia has found its way back into the news again lately. Maybe that should be no surprise given that September is National Alopecia Areata Awareness Month - Certainly anything that can be done to raise awareness of this challenging condition can only be good and is worthy of our support.. So what exactly is Alopecia? The word translates literally into hair loss, so as you might imagine it is a broad church with a range of versions and causes. In fact, Androgenetic Alopecia is the technical name for male pattern hair loss - which means that at some point in their lives the majority of men will endure a personal relationship with Alopecia. But there is no doubt the condition is better known for the aggressive version with a sudden onset, Alopecia Areata. The sufferer will experience patches, usually circular, of scalp randomly appearing on their head - often associated with stress it is easy to imagine how this must exacerbate an already difficult situation, particularly for a child. Not least ...
I have never been fully educated about what I have. My parents dont understand it either. At first when I found out what I was suffering from my mother and I tried everything we could, at one point I was getting 60 shots of steroids in the scalp. Back about three years ago, I gave up going to all the different Doctor appointments. By doing that I was hoping that my Alopecia areata would run its course and my hair would just grow back and stay for good.. Now That I have been doing this research on it and finding out that I am not alone with this. Im going to do something about my disease and hopefully find something that will help. I already know that there is no cure but Im sure there are some kind of pills that may help. Its worth trying anything to get my hair back. The definition of alopecia areata is an inflammatory hair loss disease.. Many of the facts and the on set of the hair loss are unknown. Many doctors and researchers have came up with a great amount of hypothesis and theories ...
In about 50% of cases, hair will grow again within a year without any treatment. The longer the time period of hair loss, the less likelihood that the hair will grow again.. Patients with Alopecia areata are treated with either immune-modulating therapies, such as topical immunotherapy, glucocorticoids, or biologic-response modifiers like minoxidil, or anthralin, ,. Hair growth is triggered by these treatments but hair loss may not be prevented and probably the course of the disease is not influenced. Treatment may take months or years. The choice of therapy is dependent chiefly upon the patients age and the extent of the hair loss. Mild cases of hair loss respond excellently to treatment. However, in individuals with complete loss of hair, no treatment works. Hair follicles are not destroyed in patients with alopecia areata, and the potential for regrowth always remains.. Role of diet in preventing hair loss:. New hiar growth stimulation using natural remedies is only one part of treating and ...

Within six weeks of using onion juice, 84% of the individuals were reported to have hair regrowth.. ...
This is an inherited pattern of hair loss and it is the most common cause of permanent hair loss in both women and men. Androgenetic alopecia in men is what is known as male pattern baldness -hair loss that starts at the front of the scalp and recedes backward over time, and hair in the center of the scalp thins and falls out. In women, this results in uniform hair thinning. Androgenetic alopecia is genetically linked hair thinning. Hair loss typically begins between the ages of 12 and 40. Androgenetic alopecia usually doesnt cause menstrual issues or interfere with pregnancy or endocrine function.. 2. ALOPECIA AREATA:. Alopecia areata is an immune disease that affects almost 1% of the population. This type of hair loss appears in various degrees of severity- from small, round patches of hair loss that re-grow without medical treatment, to chronic, extensive hair loss that can involve the loss of all hair on the scalp or body. This type of hair loss affects both genders equally and can occur at ...

About one-third of women experience hair loss (alopecia) at some time in their lives; among postmenopausal women, as many as two-thirds suffer hair thinning or bald spots. Hair loss often has a greater impact on women than on men, because its less socially acceptable for them. Alopecia can severely affect a womans emotional well-being and quality of life.. The main type of hair loss in both sexes - and the subject of this article - is androgenetic alopecia, or female (or male) pattern hair loss. In men, hair loss usually begins above the temples, and the receding hairline eventually forms a characteristic M shape; hair at the top of the head also thins, often progressing to baldness. In women, androgenetic alopecia begins with gradual thinning at the part line, followed by increasing diffuse hair loss radiating from the top of the head. A womans hairline rarely recedes, and women rarely become bald.. There are many potential causes of hair loss, including medical conditions, medications, ...
Types of Hair Loss Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis, Alopecia Universalis, Alopecia Barbae, Androgenetic Alopecia, Scarring Alopecias, Traction Alopecia, Anagen Effluvium and Telogen Effluvium
It is normal to lose up to about 100 hairs a day on ones comb, brush, in the sink or on the pillow. This is the result of the normal hair growth cycle. Hairs will grow for a few years, then rest for a few months, shed, and regrow. Telogen is the name for the resting stage of the hair growth cycle. A telogen effluvium is when some stress causes hair roots to be pushed prematurely into the resting state. Telogen effluvium can be acute or chronic.. If there is some shock to the system, as many as 70% of the scalp hairs are then shed in large numbers about 2 months after the shock. This sudden increase in hair loss, usually described as the hair coming out in handfuls, is acute telogen effluvium. This is a different problem than gradual genetic hair thinning. However, this can be seen in the less common chronic telogen effluvium, only after a significant amount of hair has already been lost.. A considerable number of different causes for telogen effluvium exist. Among the common causes are high ...
Last year, by far the biggest news of the year involved two likely cures for alopecia areata (AA) in humans. One was the arthritis drug tocafitinib and the other was the cancer drug ruxolitinib. Both drugs are classified as Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors, and it is likely that many other drugs from this family will lead to similar results when it comes to hair regrowth. If you read my two main posts on this subject from last year (see here and here), it should be quite obvious how exciting the news was based on the large-scale global media coverage at the time (and of course the miraculous before and after human scalp photos instead of the usual mice photos).. Unfortunately, the vast majority of men (and many women too) who have hair loss suffer from androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness (MPB). There are probably 100 times as many people who suffer from MPB as there are who suffer from alopecia areata. So the big news of last year was only useful to 1 percent of hair loss ...

Alopecia is defined as any type of balding. There are many forms of alopecia. Male pattern baldness is called androgenic alopecia and affects 80% of men worldwide. Alopecia areata is defined as patches of baldness on the scalp, which is an autoimmune disorder. Alopecia universalis is the complete loss of hair on the head. Traction Alopecia is the loss of hair due to strain over a long period of time like wearing your hair in a tight pony tail or the forces that hair extensions put on the hair that they are hanging from. About 60% of women worldwide suffer from some sort of traction alopecia!. With no cure in sight, alopecia comes with very deep psychological consequences. Men and women all over the world who suffer from this condition usually feel less confident than their peers. The acute and asymptomatic characteristics of alopecia give no warning signs as to when and where it will hit, making it a very difficult condition to deal with.. Most treatment options for alopecia are temporary or do ...
Here in this video Dr. Mukesh Aggarwal talks on stress related hair loss. He tells life has become so fast that no one is spared from stress. This stress can become a cause of hair fall. Alopecia areata, Telogen effluvium and Trichotillomania are the three types of hair losses caused by stress. Many patches occur in alopecia areata. In telogen effluvium hair goes in talogen phase and begins to fall. Trichotillomania is a behavior disorder in which patient pulls out his hair with roots. Self-analysis can harm you so consult your doctor to know about your hair problem ...
A modified double blind crossover study was performed to assess the effect of 1% topical minoxidil as compared with placebo in 30 patients with alopecia areata and alopecia totalis. The active preparation produced a highly significant incidence of hair regrowth. A cosmetically acceptable response was noted in 16 patients. No side effects were seen. The study confirmed that topical minoxidil will induce new hair growth in alopecia areata but that it is less likely to do so in more severe and extensive disease. Furthermore, patients with alopecia universalis and totalis may not respond at all. Nevertheless, as compared with other drugs minoxidil applied topically is relatively non-toxic, is easy to use, and has no systemic or local side effects. ...
The conditions of alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are all said to be autoimmune disorders. It is the body itself that is actually attacking its own cells and in this case, it would be its hair follicles. More research still needs to be completed however, on the reason behind this attack. These conditions may be considered as genetic autoimmune diseases though the cause that triggers this event is yet to be discovered. There have been cases where hair has been known to regrow and leads to complete recovery. These cases are rare however and most occurrences lead to prolonged hair loss. The ways to remedy these conditions are pretty much like how one would treat male pattern baldness. Some treatments like the scalp micropigmentation (SMP) procedure might be more ideal than others.. Pigments are applied directly unto the scalp to resemble just-shaven hair. SMP is an illusion of a hairline that makes an onlooker believe that the bearer has a full head of hair, only ...
Diphenylcyclopropenone (diphencyprone) is a topically administered experimental drug intended for treating alopecia areata and alopecia totalis. Topical immunotherapy using diphenylcyclopropenone may also be an effective treatment option for recalcitrant warts. It is not approved by either the Food and Drug Administration or the European Medicines Agency. Diphenylcyclopropenone acts as a local irritant, triggering a local sensitization. It triggers an immune response that opposes the action of the autoreactive cells that otherwise cause hair loss. A study of 41 alopecia areata patients showed significant hair regrowth in 40% at 6 months, being sustained in two thirds of these after a 12-month-follow up-period. In a 2002 study for the treatment of warts, the responders consisted of 135 individuals (87.7%) that had complete clearance of warts. Reported adverse effects were local and included with pruritus (itching) (15.6%), with blistering (7.1%), and with eczematous reactions (eczema)(14.2%). The ...

The objective assessment of treatment efficacy is very difficult and spontaneous remission is unpredictable, but if the affected area is patched, the hair may regrow spontaneously in many cases.[18] None of the existing therapeutic options are curative or preventive.[18]. In cases of severe hair loss, limited success has been achieved by using the corticosteroids clobetasol or fluocinonide, corticosteroid injections, or cream. The cream is not as effective and it takes longer in order to see results. Steroid injections are commonly used in sites where the areas of hair loss on the head are small or especially where eyebrow hair has been lost. Whether they are effective is uncertain. Some other medications that have been used are minoxidil, Elocon (mometasone) ointment (steroid cream), irritants (anthralin or topical coal tar), and topical immunotherapy ciclosporin, sometimes in different combinations. Topical corticosteroids frequently fail to enter the skin deeply enough to affect the hair ...
The most common treatment for patchy hair loss is many injections of corticosteroids into the scalp or skin, about 1 cm (0.4 in.) apart, every 4 to 6 weeks.. Children and some adults may be treated with topical corticosteroids that are applied to the affected skin.. Minoxidil (Rogaine) may be used along with topical corticosteroids.. Anthralin is an ointment that may help hair grow again. It looks and feels like tar, and it can irritate and stain the skin. So anthralin is applied to bare patches on the scalp only for a short time and then is washed off. It may take 2 months or more for new hair to grow.. Contact immunotherapy triggers an allergic reaction on the scalp that may help hair to grow. A medicine is painted on the scalp once a week. This irritates the skin and makes it red and scaly. Hair growth may appear within 3 months of beginning treatment. Side effects of contact immunotherapy include a severe rash (contact dermatitis) and swollen lymph nodes, especially in the neck.. ...

The research group around PD Dr. Hans Christian Hennies investigates the molecular basis of genetic disorders. Many of these are rare monogenic diseases, but especially multifactorial disorders, such as alopecia areata and Dupuytrens contracture, are common. Their goal is to identify the underlying pathomechanisms for these diseases and use them to define new targets for therapies as part of translational research. Our research: The primary focus of Dr. Hennies and his team is on rare, monogenic diseases, in particular diseases of the skin, hair and connective tissue. They have turned their attention to two more common diseases as well: alopecia areata, hair loss in round patches, and Dupuytrens disease, a contracture of the hand caused by fibromatosis that often occurs at advanced age. Identification of mutations that trigger the conditions is instrumental to decode the underlying pathomechanisms. Our successes: The greatest advance in research into multifactorial diseases has been an ...
