Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Target Area Hair Count (TAHC) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 6 ]
    TAHC was measured using digital imaging analysis and was reported in terminal hairs/centimeters squared (cm^2). A positive change from Baseline indicated improvement (increase in the number of terminal hairs) and a negative change from Baseline indicated worsening (decrease in the number of terminal hairs).

  • Percentage of Participants in Each Response Category of the Subject Self Assessment in Alopecia (SSA) Score [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    The SSA score measured scalp hair growth. Using a 7-point scale, participants answered the Question: "Since the start of the study, the amount of my hair has?": Greatly Increased, Moderately Increased, Slightly Increased, Remained the Same, Slightly Decreased, Moderately Decreased or Greatly Decreased. The percentage of participants in each response category is presented.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants in Each Response Category of the Investigator Global Assessment (IGA) Score [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    The investigator compared the participant's scalp hair growth at Month 6 to a photograph of the scalp taken at Baseline and using the 7-point IGA score, the investigator answered the question: "Since the start of the study, the amount of the subject's hair has?": Greatly Increased, Moderately Increased, Slightly Increased, Remained the Same, Slightly Decreased, Moderately Decreased or Greatly Decreased. The percentage of participants in each response category is presented.

  • Percentage of Participants in Each Response Category of the Global Panel Review (GPR) Score [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    At the completion of the study, 3 independent dermatologists using the 7-point GPR score compared photographs of the participant's scalp hair growth at Month 6 to Baseline and answered the question: "Compared with the baseline image, the amount of the subject's hair has?": Greatly Increased, Moderately Increased, Slightly Increased, Remained the Same, Slightly Decreased, Moderately Decreased or Greatly Decreased. The percentage of participants in each response category is presented.

  • Change From Baseline in Target Area Hair Width (TAHW) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 6 ]
    Digital imaging analysis was used to measure TAHW in millimeters/centimeters squared (mm/cm^2). The diameters of all terminal hairs (individual hairs ≥ 30 microns in width) in the target area were summed and reported together. A positive change from Baseline indicated improvement (increase in the diameter of terminal hairs) and a negative change from Baseline indicated worsening (decrease in the diameter of terminal hairs).

  • Change From Baseline in Target Area Hair Darkness (TAHD) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 6 ]
    Digital imaging analysis was used to measure TAHD. The darkness of all terminal hairs (individual hairs ≥ 30 microns in width) in the target area were summed and divided by total number of terminal hairs in the same target area and was reported as intensity units. A positive change from Baseline indicated improvement (increase in the darkness of terminal hairs) and a negative change from Baseline indicated worsening (decrease in the darkness of terminal hairs).
