    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...
