Statement of Need

Current treatments for alopecia areata (AA) include topical and systemic anti-inflammatories, immunosuppressants, and immunosensitizers depending on patient age and disease severity. Because these therapeutic options produce variable clinical outcomes, each case must be approached on a customized, individual basis. A developing pipeline of immunomodulating agents (e.g. Janus kinase inhibitors) offers promise to bridge significant treatment gaps left by current therapies. It is important that clinicians who treat patients with AA elevate their knowledge of both current and emerging therapies for AA in order to enhance best practices and patient outcomes.

Join us for the third installment of this three-part virtual Journal Club series, More Than Hair Loss: Current and Emerging Therapies for Alopecia Areata, as Drs. Nekma Meah and Dmitri Wall explore the evolving landscape of AA treatment.
