Ruxolitinib - Still looking like a treatment not a cure

Some extra info from a US radio interview with Raphael Clynes (co-investigator) on August 24th ".....We then treated a few patients - now nine patients with Alopecia Areata with a drug called a JAK inhibitor. And the results are remarkable. Six of the nine first patients treated have had excellent responses".

My question - How successful a treatment is it in the long term? Will those 6 out of nine people have relapses without continuing treatment? And...this looks like progress but we still have the side effects to consider.
