    TLDR Finasteride and minoxidil are effective for hair regrowth, while treatments for alopecia areata have varying success and continuous treatment is necessary.
    The document from 1998 reviews various treatments for hair regrowth, focusing on androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and alopecia areata. It discusses the efficacy of finasteride in clinical trials with 1,879 men, showing significant hair count increases and improvements in assessments. The use of antiandrogens in women with AGA is noted, though less effective than for other conditions. Minoxidil is highlighted for its hair growth promotion, with studies involving 2,294 men and 256 women showing moderate to dense regrowth in a significant percentage of participants. The document also covers treatments for alopecia areata, including intralesional corticosteroids, systemic corticosteroids, and topical immunotherapy with agents like DPCP, with varying success rates. It emphasizes the need for continuous treatment and the psychological impact of severe alopecia areata. Future treatments such as targeted immunomodulatory agents, gene therapy, and new phototherapy techniques are also mentioned.

      The document suggests that the traditional understanding of hair growth cycles and alopecia may be inaccurate and that blood supply plays a significant role in hair growth and loss.
