LITFULO, a once-daily pill, is here
LITFULO is a once-daily prescription pill for severe alopecia areata in both adults and adolescents as young as 12.
LITFULO is the newest FDA-approved treatment for severe alopecia areata. In a 48-week, randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled clinical study, participants (261 people, ages 12+, who had lost at least half of their scalp hair due to alopecia areata) took either LITFULO or placebo (an inactive pill). Safety and effectiveness have not been studied in people under 12 years of age. Results were measured at 24 weeks. Find out more information about the study.

How LITFULO Works
A look at LITFULO and alopecia areata
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease. In people with alopecia areata, their own immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles at the root, causing hair to fall out. Typically, hair is protected from an immune system attack, but in alopecia areata, this protection is lost.
LITFULO is a prescription medicine that works inside the body to treat severe alopecia areata. Take a closer look at how LITFULO works below.
It’s not currently known how blocking specific proteins can affect alopecia areata.
