BOSTON – Scientists at Yale may have discovered quite the off-label use for an FDA-approved arthritis drug, CBS Boston reports.

During a trial, which stretched for eight months, a 25-year-old man with almost no hair on his body grew a full head following treatment with the drug. He reported no noticeable side effects.



The patient was suffering from a rare, highly visible disease known as alopecia universalis, which has no cure or approved long term treatment.

The disease causes the loss of almost all body hair.
