Has anyone heard anything about this drug called Tofacitinib?  It apparently was used on a man to treat his arthritis, and as a side effect to the treatment this man's immune system stopped attacking his hair follicles ... and his hair grew back in full after years of living with alopecia universalis.

If you have any information on this, please share!
