The BRAVE-AA-PEDS is a study testing an oral drug in children and adolescents with severe hair loss, also known as alopecia areata or AA.

What is the BRAVE-AA-PEDS Study?
The study is testing how safe and effective a study drug is for children and adolescents with severe AA. During the 36-week treatment period, participants will receive either the study drug or a placebo (a placebo looks like the study drug but does not contain active medicine). Those taking placebo will be offered the study drug in an extension period.

To qualify for the BRAVE-AA-PEDS STUDY, participants must:*

  • Be at least age 6 and less than 18 years old
  • Have severe AA for at least a year
  • Have a current AA episode that has lasted at least 6 months
  • Have tried at least 1 AA treatment, and it failed

*There are additional requirements as determined by a screening process.
