Default PGD2 causes hair loss according to Dr. Cotsarelis

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/0...tern-baldness/

It seems that according to a new study by Cotsaerlis that PGD2 is involved in the inhibition of hair loss seen in men with MPB.

What could make this extra good news is that there is already a couple of treatments in phase 3 that are aimed at blocking the PGD2-receptor. Meaning that if these findings are significant - we could have a working treatment out quite soon.

As usually - time will tell...

My trolling friend strikes again.

Guess who's behind a treatment ? Merck.

Love this industry.

Here's an interview from Cotsarelis on the recent discovery. I don't want to get my hopes up too quickly, but if these medications in phase 3 could work in a topical solution like he predicts might be possible...it would be like a miracle out of nowhere.

''It'll take a while to figure out but we'll have to partner with a company to generate more research funding so we can answer that question.''

Typical Cotsarelis.

IIRC, it's known that DHT is involved in causing MPB, somehow, rather than known to be specifically the trigger for it. If that makes sense.

if this works you won't even have to wait for the product...after the release the details of their studies people will find a way to make their own solutions like in ************.

edit: hair loss talk is a bad word lol.
