FDA Approves First Drug for Alopecia Hair LossBy Radiant Health
Published: June 19, 2022
Americans that suffer from alopecia areata, a condition that causes all body hair to fall out, finally have a prescription treatment to try. The drug is made by Eli Lilly, and it is called Olumiant. The oral medication works by blocking the enzymes that drive the body to attack its own hair follicles. The FDA’s approval means the drug will be covered by some insurance. It is listed at a price of $2,500 per month. Pfizer and Concert Pharmaceuticals are also working on medications to help those with hair loss caused by Alopecia.
