In November 2021, Hope Medicine received FDA approval to start Phase 2 clinical trials of HMI-115 for androgenetic alopecia. In 2020, the FDA also approved Phase 2 trials of the same drug for endometriosis. Phase 2 clinical trials of HMI-115 for hair loss are due to begin in the USA soon.
In Australia, Phase 1 trials are currently underway. The trial is due to last 6 months, with 20 participants receiving injections every 2 weeks (12 injections total).
