Xeljanz Grows Hair In Some Alopecia Areata Patients

Last night, I watched a neat story on CNN about how an arthritis drug, Xeljanz, was able to help a young man who suffers from alopecia areata grow a full head-of-hair. Doctors do not know yet – if Xeljanz will help the millions of men who already suffer from male-pattern-baldness, but the drug company who owns patent will likely conduct studies to find out soon - if it does. Alopecia areata is a condition that, many times, causes the hair of young victims to fall out. There are many side-effects of Xeljanz, so that definitely should cause some some people to think twice before taking this already U.S. FDA approved medication. That said, I expect retail sales of Xeljanz to go through the roof – if it is proven this medication honestly grows hair. For decades, millions of people have search for a daily pill that will grow hair and help them lose weight. It now appears that maybe one of those problems will be a thing of the past in the very near future.
