It seems that the health industry has waged a war against hair loss in the recent years. There have been many new treatments that have come to the fore and marked improvements have been made in the existing ones. The advancements in technology is certainly helping in finding new solutions to prevent or even reverse baldness.
As we speak, plenty of research is going on and several new treatments are in the pipeline for hair loss. We shall look into some of these interesting developments in the following lines.
The doctors noticed an increase in eyelash thickness while they were testing the anti-glaucoma drug. It is currently approved by FDA for eyelashes treatment and it is expected that in future, this may be used to treat hair loss. There is need to hold more research and experimentation before that can happen.
It has been observed that once the layer of fat from the scalp is lost, there is a clear slowdown in hair loss and eventually it is stopped altogether. It is believed that fat is responsible for the Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) which is important for the growth of hair. More research is being done in this regard to understand how fat can be brought to use and it will require more time before something solid can be had in this regard.
Hair loss can be had temporarily due to a number of conditions including Telogen Effluvium. Cortisol, which is a stress hormone, is known to affect health in an adverse manner including have ill effects on the follicular health. To inhibit the production and reception of Cortisol, Corticotrophin releasing factors are administered. It has been noticed that hair grew back quickly as a result.
Currently testing has been carried out on mice and has been found to be very effective. Further development is being done so that it can be available for human use in near future.
With the help of cells extracting from balding men, researchers have cultured 3D Spheroids which are clump of cells. These are able to maintain their identity as well as their role in growth. The experiments on mice have seen substantial success with seven out of nine bald mice experiencing hair growth. Research is being carried out in finding ways how these can be useful in humans.
