A Phase 3, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacokinetics of Baricitinib in Children from 6 Years& Less than 18 Years of Age with Alopecia Areata


We are conducting a research study for children ages 6-17 with patchy Alopecia Areata (AA). The purpose of this research study is to learn more about the safety, tolerability and efficacy of an investigational drug called Baricitinib. This study will compare the investigational drug to a placebo (inactive substance) to see how well the investigational drug works.
