Abstract

A double-blind study was performed on 85 patients with alopecia areata in order to assess the capacity of topical cyclosporin A to produce hair regrowth. No difference was found between the cyclosporin and the placebo. The failure to find detectable blood levels of the drug suggests that its transcutaneous absorption is poor.
