Alopecia is a prevalent autoimmune disorder, resulting in loss of hair all over the body, predominantly on the scalp. It usually starts with one or smaller round patches on the scalp (alopecia areata) and progresses to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis), or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis).
Alopecia universalis is the least prevalent autoimmune disorder, affecting less than 5% of the total population with alopecia. The management of extensive alopecia is challenging, and sometimes patients may not respond to therapy.
The most common prescribed medication for hair regrowth includes anti-inflammatory medications, including topical and intraleisonal corticosteroid injections. Topical 2% and 5% minoxidil solution and oral finasteride (such as propecia manufactured by Merck and Co. Inc.) are also recommended for the treatment of hair loss. The global alopecia treatment market size is set to expand at a steady CAGR of 4% over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.
