Alopecia Areata Treatment Market

Alopecia Areata (AA), an autoimmune skin disorder, in which the hair follicles get damaged by a faulty immune system. This faultiness causes the immune system to attack its own body, thus disrupting hair follicles and new hair formation. Biopsies performed have clearly shown the immune lymphocytes travelling in the hair bulbs of the hair follicle. The condition can lead to extreme hair loss in aggravated stages from the entire body, known as Alopecia universalis or it can lead to overall loss of hair from the scalp area, also called Alopecia Totalis.

The lifetime risk of developing alopecia areata is estimated to be 1.7%. All races are affected equally by alopecia areata and no increase in prevalence has been found in a particular ethnic group.
As per the study conducted by Alexandra C. Villasante Fricke et al. in 2015, the scalp is the most common site of involvement, with or without involvement of other body sites (such as the eyebrows, eyelashes, and beard). Specifically, the most common site was the occipital region, involved in 38.4% of males and 33.4% of females. Upon first presentation, 58% of adult patients had patchy hair loss with less than half the scalp involved. On the other hand, in children, 80–85% had mild-to-moderate hair loss involving less than half the scalp.
As per the National Organization of Rare Disease, alopecia areata is most common among the children and approximately 2.5 million people are suffering from alopecia areata in the United States.

Alopecia Areata Treatment Market

The treatments commonly prescribed to AA patients include Injections, Oral, Topical Treatments and Light therapy.

Alopecia Areata Injections:

Steroid injections are commonly used in the treatment of AA, mainly for bald and patchy areas on the scalp. Steroidal injections are injected on the bare part of the affected area. Although it does not stop the hair fall, but effectively helps in regeneration of hair. The treatment is to be repeated in every one to two months.

Alopecia Areata Oral Treatments:

Cortisone tablets are majorly recommended for severe forms of AA. However, cortisone causes major side effects as well. Immunosuppressants such as methotrexate and cyclosporine are also recommended. They work by creating an obstruction for the immune system, but they cannot be ingested for prolonged periods due to serious side effects such as lymphoma, kidney and liver damages etc.

Alopecia Areata Topical Treatments:

Many types of topical treatments are rubbed on the scalp area and other regions of the body including eyebrows and beard. These involve Minoxidil (Rogaine), Anthralin (Dritho-Scalp), clobetasol (Impoyz), Diphencyprone etc.

Alopecia Areata Light Therapy:

This form of therapy uses a combination of psoralens and Ultra-violet light to treat AA.
