Pharmacia Consumer Healthcare, Helsingborg, Sweden and Peapack, NJ, USA
"…A recent analysis of hair count data in 4 multicenter studies evaluating both minoxidil 2% and 5% (two studies in females and two in males) has sustantiated that hair loss can be stabilized using minoxidil topical solution use.
…The hair count stabilization data, based on a calculation of increased or unchanged number of non-vellus hairs compared to baseline, showed that for males the stabilization (percent of subjects) was 90% and 77% for minoxidil 2% users and 96% and 75% for minoxidil 5% users.
For females, the percentages were 87% and 88% for minoxidil 2% users, and 85% and 89% for minoxidil 5% users.
In addition, using hair count data in subjects treated with minoxidil 2% and 3% for up to 5 years, it was estimated that hair loss stabilized in 4 out of 5 (80%) subjects.
…in conclusion, multiple studies support the ability of minoxidil topical solution to stabilize hair loss in 4 out of 5 users".
