NHS Watchdog Explores Hair Loss Pill in Fight Against Alopecia: A Promising Solution for 100,000 Sufferers, Including Celebrities like Jada Pinkett Smith

  • Last week European drugs regulators approved daily anti hair loss pill 
  • The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence is assessing the drug  















Adults and teens with the severe hair loss condition alopecia areata could soon be offered a breakthrough medicine that can trigger regrowth in just six months.

Last week, European drugs regulators approved ritlecitinib, and it is currently being assessed by NHS spending watchdog, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Alopecia areata is one of the more common causes of hair loss and usually begins in childhood or early adulthood. It is caused by the body’s immune system attacking hair follicles and is characterized by patches of baldness.

But ritlecitinib has been found to reverse the condition in one in five patients.

There are approximately 100,000 alopecia areata sufferers in the UK, with experts believing the condition may be caused by genetics.
