Chemotherapy-Induced Alopecia (CIA) TREATMENT Study
 

Are you losing hair from the chemotherapy you are currently receiving? Participate in the only CIA treatment study before you lose all your hair.


We have reasons to believe that there is a treatment for hair loss caused by chemotherapy, but we need your help to confirm it and to better understand who and how this treatment can help. We are trying to solidify a real potential treatment to one of the most emotionally painful experiences one could experience. Your time and effort may not only save your hair, but also the hair of millions of other chemotherapy patients throughout the world.

Here are some frequently asked questions to help you decide if you should join this study.

Will this treatment stop my hair loss?
Who are you looking for as study participants?
What will this cost me?
Is there any form of cancer that would prevent me from participating in this study?
Will there be injections or medications that may interfere with my chemotherapy?
What do I need to do to participate and to remain in this study?
Will there be a limitation on the number of participants in the study?
I want to be in your study, what should I do next?


Will this treatment stop my hair loss?

We have concrete evidence in one case study where our treatment successfully reversed chemotherapy-induced hair loss. We believe this case is the worldĄŻs first successful treatment for chemotherapy-induced alopecia, and we are currently selecting the most appropriate medical journals for submission. Shown below are photographs demonstrating regrowth of the patient's hair while he was under active chemotherapy (Erbitux, 5-FU, folinic acid, irinotecan).


However, this is only one person under one type of chemotherapy regimen. There are still too many unknown factors. We hope to discover how this treatment will work for different types of chemotherapy and different stages of hair loss.

Who are you looking for as study participants?

We are looking for male and female cancer patients over the ages of 18 who are currently undergoing chemotherapy and have lost some or most of their hair. The hair-loss treatment will last 2 to 3 months, and therefore we need study participants who are expected to stay on the same or similar chemotherapy regimen during the course of this treatment.

What will this cost me?

Your treatment during the study period will be completely free. If the treatment is successful during the study period, and you wish to continue the treatment beyond the study period, Dr. TK understands the financial drain cancer puts on a family and will do its best to accommodate your situation. Furthermore, should the treatment receive FDA approval, insurance companies may start pay for this treatment in the future.

Is there any form of cancer that would prevent me from participating in this study?

Unfortunately, we are not able to include patients with any form of malignant skin cancer in our study.

Will there be injections or medications that may interfere with my chemotherapy?

No. There will be no medications or injections necessary for this hair-loss treatment.

What do I need to do to participate and to remain in this study?

To remain in the study, you must be able to come to the clinic and receive 30 minutes of treatment three times a week with no two treatment sessions more than one week apart.

A small area, about the size of a quarter, towards the back of your scalp will be marked with 4 dots at its corners using temporary henna tattoo ink. Hair in this area will be shaved and scalp photographed at the start of the study and every 2 to 4 weeks during the course of the treatment. The henna tattoo naturally disappears after 2 to 4 weeks. Hence it will be reapplied periodically during the course of the study.

Will there be a limitation on the number of participants in the study?

During the pilot phase, we are looking for 20-30 active participants. We may expand the scope of the study if we see positive results quickly.
