British researchers find new cure for baldness
British Researchers have found a new treatment that can help eliminate the problem of baldness by using a drug to treat osteoporosis.
The researchers also found that the drug also inhibits the protein SFRP1, which inhibits the pathway of the WNT molecule, a vital molecule for the growth of many tissues.
Another is Way-316606, which is designed to prevent SFRP1 protein and is a treatment for osteoporosis treatments.
"The fact this new agent, which had never even been considered in a hair loss context, promotes human hair growth is exciting because of its translational potential: It could one day make a real difference to people who suffer from hair loss," said lead scientist Dr. Nathan Hawkshaw, from the University of Manchester.
"Clearly though, a clinical trial is required next to tell us whether this drug or similar compounds are both effective and safe in hair loss patients." he added.
It is worth mentioning that hair loss and fall is a daily occurrence, but some species are temporary and some permanent. There are cases that may require visiting the doctor, including sudden hair loss and the development of bald areas and increase and loss of hair.
