Oral Medication Study for Alopecia Areata (113 Weeks)

Adults at least 18 years of age and ≤ 60 years for males (≤ 70 years for females) with severe or very severe alopecia areata (hair loss), may qualify to participate. To be eligible, participants must have a current episode of more than 6 months in duration and 50% or more hair loss of the scalp. There must be no spontaneous improvement (regrowth) over the past 6 months, and the current episode of severe or very severe hair loss must be less than 8 years.

Participants will receive investigational oral medication (active study drug) or placebo, during the double-blind treatment period. Those individuals who have completed the double-blind treatment period (Week 36) will enter the long-term extension period (up to 68 weeks). Depending on response to treatment at Week 52, medication assignment may change.

Study medication and study-related care will be provided at no cost. Reimbursement for study-related expenses may be provided.

Participation will last up to 113 weeks and involve about 19 visits to the study centre.
