In order to be the best in our area, it is required we stay ahead of the industry. In keeping up with the latest hair loss news, we have come across many great resources that we would like to share with you. Some of the information you may find on our blog form time to time, but some of the more important news we will share here.
Just recently (April 2014) The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology released an article identifying one specific gene that is responsible for a rare balding disease known as Atrichia.
The article goes into great detail as far as the scientific process involved in discovering the gene but the takeaway is that not only has it been identified, but they believe they have identified a strategy for reversing this type of hair loss.
Another promising discovery came from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Researchers have come up with a method to convert adult cells into epithelial stem cells, the first time anyone has achieved this in either humans or mice. The epithelial stem cells, when implanted into immunocompromised mice, regenerated the different cell types of human skin and hair follicles, and even produced structurally recognizable hair shaft, raising the possibility that they may eventually enable hair regeneration in people.medicine that destroys ly fall out within a short time after the surgery due to trauma. Then slowly over the course of several months the person will begin to grow normal hair. After a period of six to nine months hair loss can still occur in areas that were not treated in the beginning or were not detected at the onset of the hair loss. This starts the cycle again.
In many cases the thought of such a prolonged period of time before transplanted hair begins to grow, the cost involved with a hair transplant and the risk of the hair transplant not taking, leave people to turn to other alternatives such as a hair prosthesis and hair integrations.
