Researchers at NYU Langone Health are studying the impacts of alopecia areata on the risk of developing heart disease. Patients with alopecia areata may be up to a several fold higher risk for heart attack or stroke when compared to those without alopecia areata. This research study aims to investigate why as a first step towards exploring prevention and treatment options. Participating in this research may provide long-term benefits to other patients with alopecia areata.

Participation will involve an IV insertion, blood draw, and ultrasound of your blood vessels. This baseline appointment should take no more than 1.5 hours. You may be asked to return for a follow up visit if you are willing.

Participants will be compensated up to $200 for their time and efforts and reimbursed for travel and parking.

You may qualify to participate in this study if you:
– Are 18 years or older
– Have been diagnosed with alopecia areata
– Have no history of a heart attack or stroke
