Hell fellow balding brothers ;) , I just wanted to inform everyone of yet another drug in the works to join our fight against this wicked disease. I believe it is a topical, not really sure of it's mechanism, but it does seem to be well into its phase 2 in Japan by a company named RTECH UEONO.


I usually dont post that much cause I am busy and I dont have the time to look through all this information, but here are some links to where u may be able to learn more of this drug. Thank you, and may the force be with you.

There is very little info in the links you've posted. There isn't much more I could find online. They finished Phase 2a already in january 2011 (http://www.avarx.com/AvaRx/SubDomains/bucket4067333585903701678/Listings/bucket5848345317244363927/Public.Listing.display.html). The molecule is a fatty acid derivative, apperently similar to Bimaprost (http://www.geneticbaldness.com/yet-another-glaucoma-drug-in-phase-2-clinical-trials-for-hair-loss.html).

being able to buy something new like this from japan is better than nothing. So hopefully something like this eventually makes it out sooner rather than later. A safer topical would be a handy thing to have especially from a reliable manufacturer.
