Efficacy Study of Latanoprost and Bimatoprost Solutions in Promoting Eyelash Growth in Patients With Alopecia Areata
University of California, San Francisco
This is a single center, randomized, investigator-masked study to determine the efficacy and
safety of latanoprost and bimatoprost ophthalmic solutions in promoting eyelash growth in
patients who have lost their eyelashes due to alopecia areata. These medications are
FDA-approved as eyedrops for patients with glaucoma who have been noted to grow longer,
darker, and thicker eyelashes with their use. In this study, patients will be asked to apply
these solutions to the affected eyelid margins of one eye with a sterile cotton-tipped
applicator once a day.
To compare the intraocular pressure effect and safety of the dorzolamide/timolol fixed
combination given twice daily versus bimatoprost given once every evening in patients with
open-angle glaucoma in patients insufficiently controlled on latanoprost monotherapy
