    INCY IR does nothing. IR gets paid $ 250K / year to do nothing but eat donuts and drink coffee.

    Treatment with a drug normally used for a bone marrow condition has completely reversed baldness caused by alopecia in three patients, scientists in the US have announced. The sufferers had lost at least a third of the hair on their heads, and each regained total hair regrowth within five months of being treated with ruxolitinib, which is approved in the US and EU for treatment of myelofibrosis.

    One of the team from Columbia University Medical Centre, Professor Angela Christiano, has herself suffered from the condition, and described it as: "Not life threatening, but it is life altering".

    The results are announced in the online edition of Nature Medicine journal, by the team from Columbia, who previously identified the immune cells responsible for destroying the hair follicles. The treatment would not work for the more common male-pattern baldness, which is linked to hormones.

Christiano said it was wrong to dismiss the condition as unimportant.

    "Nothing could be further from the truth. Patients with alopecia areata are suffering profoundly, and these findings mark a significant step forward for them. The team is fully committed to advancing new therapies for patients with a vast unmet need."

    In an interview with the New York Times, Christiano said the condition was first spotted by her hairdresser and then confirmed by a colleague with "a blood-curdling scream". It occurred almost 10 years ago when she had just arrived at Columbia to start her own laboratory, and she was told there was no cure – but in the interview, four years ago, she predicted that treatment co

    Look at the MACD when INCY dropped from 70 to ~45 last time. Given that it appears as though INCY can fall an awful long way yet. Don't just look at RSI but also MACD.
