Comparative Study Examining the Effectiveness in Use of a DERMOJET and a Normal Syringe Treatment for Patients With Hair Loss - Alopecia Areata

22:21 EDT 29th March 2015 | BioPortfolio


Conventional treatments include the use of steroids applied locally, or injection in to the legion, or oral therapy.

Treatment is determined by the severity of the disease.

Injection in to the legion can be done in two methods

1. Subcutaneous injection syringe Lower

2. Using syringe DERMOJET - a syringe without a needle. So far there are no publications in the medical literature of studies comparing efficacy, safety, convenience of use for doctor-patient, of both methods.
