Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change From Baseline in the Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline-Week 24 ]
    The Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) score is a physician administered scale measuring the amount of scalp without any terminal hair assessed by the investigator. Possible scores range from 0 (no scalp hair loss) to 100 (complete scalp hair loss). A negative change in the SALT score over time represents hair regrowth by adding the percentage hair loss in the various areas (i.e. top, back, each side) of the scalp. The primary efficacy variable was the percent change from baseline in SALT score at Week 24. This was calculated as the mean of the changes from Baseline (Visit 2) SALT score to Week 24 (Visit 10) SALT score, divided by Baseline SALT score and expressed as a percentage.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change From Baseline in the Alopecia Density and Extent Score (ALODEX) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline-Week 24 ]
    The Alopecia Density and Extent (ALODEX) score is a measurement of the amount of scalp with terminal hair loss assessed by the investigator at Baseline, Week 4, Week 8, Week 12, Week 16, Week 20, and Week 24. ALODEX breaks the scalp up into a grid of 1% scalp surface areas and assigns density rating in each area on a 10 point scale of hair loss (0= no hair loss to 10 = complete baldness). Summation of scores from each 1% scalp surface area provides an overall score which may range from 0 (no scalp hair loss) to 100 (complete baldness). A negative change in the ALODEX score over time represents hair regrowth.

  2. Mean Change From Baseline in the Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline-Week 24 ]
    The Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) score is a physician administered scale measuring the amount of scalp without any terminal hair assessed by the investigator. Possible scores range from 0 (no scalp hair loss) to 100 (complete scalp hair loss). A negative change in the SALT score over time represents hair regrowth by adding the percentage hair loss in the various areas (i.e. top, back, each side) of the scalp.

  3. Mean Change From Baseline in the Alopecia Density and Extent (ALODEX) Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline-Week 24 ]
    The Alopecia Density and Extent (ALODEX) score is a measurement of the amount of scalp with terminal hair loss assessed by the investigator. ALODEX breaks the scalp up into a grid of 1% scalp surface areas and assigns density rating in each area on a 10 point scale of hair loss (0= no hair loss to 10 = complete baldness). Summation of scores from each 1% scalp surface area provides an overall score which may range from 0 (no scalp hair loss) to 100 (complete baldness). A negative change in the ALODEX score over time represents hair regrowth.

  4. Count of Subjects Achieving at Least a 50% Reduction in Alopecia Density and Extent (ALODEX) Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline-Week 24 ]
    The Alopecia Density and Extent (ALODEX) score is a measurement of the amount of scalp with terminal hair loss assessed by the investigator. ALODEX breaks the scalp up into a grid of 1% scalp surface areas and assigns density rating in each area on a 10 point scale of hair loss (0= no hair loss to 10 = complete baldness). Summation of scores from each 1% scalp surface area provides an overall score which may range from 0 (no scalp hair loss) to 100 (complete baldness). A negative change in the ALODEX score over time represents hair regrowth.

  5. Count of Subjects in Each Treatment Arm Achieving at Least a 50% Reduction in Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) Score at Week 24 Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline-Week 24 ]
    The Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) score is a physician administered scale measuring the amount of scalp without any terminal hair assessed by the investigator. Possible scores range from 0 (no scalp hair loss) to 100 (complete scalp hair loss). A negative change in the SALT score over time represents hair regrowth by adding the percentage hair loss in the various areas (i.e. top, back, each side) of the scalp.

  12. History of recurrent herpes zoster (more than one episode) or disseminated herpes zoster (a single episode) or disseminated herpes simplex (single episode) or cytomegalovirus (CMV) that resolved less than 2 months before study enrollment. Subjects with a history of frequent outbreaks of Herpes Simplex Virus (defined as 4 or more outbreaks a year).
  13. Subjects who have received any of the following treatments for the timeframes specified below:

    • Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDS), Biologics or immunosuppressants, including but not limited to: anakinra, adalimumab, azathioprine, corticosteroids, cyclosporine, etanercept, infliximab, methotrexate, TNF inhibitors, ustekinumab within 1 month or 5 half-lives (whichever is greater) of Baseline (Visit 2).
    • Plaquenil within 2 months of Baseline (Visit 2).
    • Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors (oral or topical) within 6 months of Baseline (Visit 2).
    • Intralesional steroids or platelet rich plasma injections in the scalp within 1 month of Baseline (Visit 2).
    • Topical treatments on the scalp with anthralin, bimatoprost, corticosteroids, diphencyprone, diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP), squaric acid dibutylester (SADBE), minoxidil, pimecrolimus, or tacrolimus within 1 month of Baseline (Visit 2).
    • Phototherapy (narrow band Ultraviolet B [NB UVB] or broadband therapy) within 4 weeks of Baseline (Visit 2).
  14. Participation in an investigational drug or device trial in which administration of an investigational drug or device occurred within 30 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) of Baseline (Visit 2).
  15. Any condition possibly affecting oral drug absorption, e.g., gastrectomy, clinically significant diabetic gastroenteropathy, or certain types of bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass. Procedures such as gastric banding are not exclusionary.
  16. Unwillingness to refrain from weaves, hair extensions, or shaving of the scalp for at least two weeks prior to a study visit, at the discretion of the investigator, based on the ability to assess hair growth.
  17. Vaccination with a live or attenuated vaccine within 6 weeks prior to Baseline (Visit 2) or planned vaccination with these vaccines at any time during treatment or within 6 weeks following discontinuation of study medication.
