Tell Every Man You Know: There’s (Reportedly) a Cure for Baldness

If this new Yale study is everything it appears to be, then the days of Rogaine might soon be gone. Scientists claim that a drug typically used to treat arthritis has helped a man who suffers from alopecia universalis (read: full-body hairlessness)—to regrow his body hair entirely.

The 25-year-old patient sprouted a full head of hair along with eyebrows, eyelashes, facial, and armpit hair after the 8-month trial. We’re hopeful that the drug—tofacitinib citrate—can also cure a more general baldness, or even help men grow facial hair. Heck, anything to prevent guys getting beard transplants, right? The doctors behind the study have filed to begin studies on a topical cream to treat alopecia areata—to help these more common cases of hair loss.
