Alopecia Areata Understanding
Alopecia Areata: Overview
Alopecia areata (AA) is a form of alopecia that impacts hair follicles, nails, and rarely, the retinal pigment epithelium. It typically presents with round patches and is a type of non-scarring hair loss. A significant feature of the hair follicle is its relative immune privilege, this mainly established by suppression of surface molecules required for presenting auto antigens to CD8+ T lymphocytes (i.e., MHC class I) and by the generation of an inhibitory local signaling environment. The breakdown of the immune privilege of the hair follicle has been thought to be a significant driver of AA.
Alopecia areata is a disorder of hair follicle-cycling, where inflammatory cells attack the hair follicle matrix epithelium that is undergoing early cortical differentiation (anagen hair follicles), which are then precipitately induced into the catagen phase. However, since no destruction of hair-follicle stem cells occurs, the hair follicle retains its capacity to regenerate and continue cycling. Thereby, follicles re-enter the anagen phase normally but do not develop beyond the anagen III/IV phase.
Presumably, alopecia areata develops in a previously healthy hair follicle because its immune privilege collapses. Therefore, it could occur in a genetically predisposed person only when proinflammatory signals (i.e., IFN gamma, substance P) known to upregulate MHC class Ia in human hair-follicle epithelium expose previously unrevealed follicle-associated autoantigens to preexisting autoreactive CD8+ T cells. Since only anagen hair follicles undergo attack, those auto antigens may generate and then be presented only during anagen. The precise event that precipitates alopecia areata is unknown. Some triggers have been reported, most commonly emotional or physical stress, vaccines, viral infections, and drugs.
Many therapeutic modalities have been used to treat alopecia areata, with variable efficacy and safety profiles. Unfortunately, none of these agents is curative or preventive. Also, many of these therapeutic agents have not been subjected to randomized, controlled trials, and, except for topical immunotherapy, there are few published studies on long-term outcomes.
"Alopecia Areata- Pipeline Insight, 2023" report by DelveInsight outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication.

The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Alopecia Areata R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Alopecia Areata.
Alopecia Areata Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Alopecia Areata report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Alopecia Areata Emerging Drugs
Deuruxolitinib: Concert Pharmaceuticals
Concert Pharmaceuticals is developing deuruxolitinib (CTP-543), an oral inhibitor of Janus kinases JAK1 and JAK2. The FDA has granted CTP-543 breakthrough therapy designation for the treatment of adult patients with moderate to severe alopecia areata and Fast Track designation for the treatment of alopecia areata. The company is evaluating the efficacy and safety of deuruxolitinib in adult patients with moderate to severe alopecia areata in its THRIVE-AA Phase III clinical program. Concert reported positive topline data from the clinical trials. Data from the clinical trials are intended to form the basis of a New Drug Application (NDA) planned to be submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by the first half of 2023.
EQ101 is a first-in-class, tri-specific inhibitor of IL-2, IL-9 and IL-15, three inflammatory cytokines implicated in multiple diseases. EQ101 was also shown to be well tolerated with a favorable safety profile with no drug-related SAEs and no dose-limiting toxicities. The drug is currently formulated for intravenous administration, with subcutaneous formulation development underway. It is currently in the Phase II stage of its development in alopecia areata, a dermatological autoimmune disorder.
MAX 40070: Maxinovel Pharmaceuticals
MAX-40070 is a topical JAK/Tyk2 inhibitor developed by Maxinovel. Preclinical studies have shown that topical administration of MAX-40070 could achieve an effective exposure in skin tissue while maintaining low systemic exposure. MAX-40070 has the potential to minimize the systemic side effects of oral JAK inhibitors and eventually demonstrates its high benefit/risk ratio through clinical trials, which may ultimately provide robust evidence to support its more broadly use in treating dermatological autoimmune disorders. Currently, the drug is in Phase I stage of its development for the treatment of Alopecia Areata.
