Scientists from from Colombia, Rockefeller and Stanford Universities, believe they have discovered a gene that significantly* impacts hair growth as well as hair follicle miniaturization; the phenomenon that is the cornerstone of male and female pattern baldness. The gene identified is named APCDD1 (adenomatosis polyposis down-regulated 1), and was found in patients suffering with hereditary [...]
