Research Study for Eyelash Growth

You may qualify to participate in a clinical research study involving the investigational use of bimatoprost (Lumigan ®) ophthalmic drops in promoting eyelash growth in patients with eyelash loss due to alopecia areata. Bimatatoprost ophthalmic solution is approved for the treatment of glaucoma. Patients who are treated for glaucoma with this medication often notice longer, thicker eyelashes. Currently, there are no safe or acceptable treatments for eyelash loss due to alopecia areata.

You may qualify to participate in this study if you:
• Are between the ages of 18 – 70
• Have 50% or more eyelash loss in both eyes due to alopecia areata which has been
present for 6 months or longer.

All office visits, ophthalmologic examinations, photographs, and study drug will be provided without charge. There is no compensation for time or travel.
