Effect of aminexil combined with SP94 was evaluated as positive in a group of patients of both genders. To confirm these positive effects a survey in 180 patients of each gender has been performed in two Trichology Units of two Hospitals. Patients applied 6 ml. of the lotion in humid scalp all the nights. Controls to the start of treatment and at 45, 90, and 180 days was realized. Graduation of alopecia in accordance with the Ebling’s and Ludwig’s scales, and diferentiation on four group of age (less than 17 year, between 18 and 34 years, between 35 and 49 years, and more than 50 year) was performed. All the patients were asked about their clinical background or treatments realized, seborrhoeic dermatitis, number of hairs shedding in a wash 48 hour before, nutritional deficiencies or congenital errors. Women with clinical signs of SAHA syndrome an hormonal analysis was performed.
Exploration of patients at each visit included trichogram and study of the hair diameter, pull sign, sebometry, corneometry, photographic control, graduation of alopecia, and a valoration of seborrhoeic dermatitis evolution in a quantitative scale. In each visit was also asked to patients for a evaluation about cosmeticity and efficacy of the lotion, by which of a subjecitive manner was divided in worst, similar, acceptable-better, and excellent, that was contrasted with the opinion of two physicians that had their evaluation based on the signs and photograph of each visit. Patient’s compliment was study with the Morisky-Green’s questionnaire. Patients that do not follow the protocol of application or that did not attend to some visit were substituted. Results permit to assure aminexil associated with SP.94 stop or delay loss of hair and favored its wide, although regroth of new hair lost in the evolutive process of androgenetic alopecia was not demonstrated, neither its actuation in seborrhorea and soborrhoeic dermatitis.
