“No one is claiming a cure for baldness just yet, but researchers at Columbia University Medical Center may have taken an important step in that direction.

In a series of experiments involving mice and human tissue, the scientists showed that enzyme-blocking drugs known as JAK inhibitors can cause significant regrowth of hair when applied to the skin.

The unexpected finding raises the possibility that these medications might be used to restore hair growth in men and women experiencing pattern baldness, as well as in cancer patients who have lost hair as a result of chemotherapy treatments. Oral versions of the medicines have already been approved by the FDA to treat other medical conditions.”
