The number of people suffering with autoimmune disease is on the rise. Scientists believe genetics and the environment are two influencing factors to initiate an autoimmune disease.
Our charity operates completely from public donations. All fundraisers are greatly appreciated and every penny raised helps us to fund new medical research projects for alopecia areata.
Research into alopecia areata is minimal in comparison with other autoimmune diseases. AAR-UK is currently working with experts within the institute of Infection,Immunity and Inflammation.
