9702;no spontaneous improvement over the past 6 months.
9702;current episode of severe or very severe AA of less than 8 years. Note: participants who have severe or very severe AA for 8805;8 years may be enrolled if episodes of regrowth, spontaneous or under treatment, have been observed on the affected areas over the past 8 years.
