    I think there will be a cure when they find a way to cure mortality. At some point that will also happen but seems hundreds of years away.

    I'm afraid to admit that I would have to say no. Its like trying to cure ageing. We can fight to keep what we have and promote some growth of that which was lost but to halt it completely and have it unaffected by DHT? I'd say no.

    I disagree, I think it's one of the most cureable 'diseases' currently without a 'cure'.(Cure being something that grows and maintains the hair back to it's mature hairline form for a very long time, say 10 years+).

    By that I mean, all they really need to find is a strong enough stimulant, and possibly a better inhibitor that doesn't effect hormones as much. They already have products that have SOME affect, but it's moreso getting a much stronger effect now. Histogen is clearly on the right track, so how can science improve on what Histogen can do? Things/products will only get better, there will only be more solutions as time goes by, not less, which is why i'm fairly optimistic.

    This is nowhere near as advanced as say cancer, alzeimers, parkinsons etc. all of which are far more serious of course, but they also seem much more complex.

    By cure I mean, growing hair back.
    The cure is already here: Finasteride, dutasteride, minoxidil, ketoconazole. In fact, I think that men, who don't have success with dutasteride+minoxidil must be sons of extra-terrestials.

    If you say "no", then you must also admit that even women can't completely stop baldness, because it is an inevitable consequence of aging. A logical conclusion. What do you think?

CB will tackle androgens, Histogen and something to address PDg2 levels will promote growth, modulate immune response, stop inflammation etc.
    I wonder, if you just fell from the Moon or where have you spent the last 15-25 years? Don't we already have very effective medications, anti-androgens like dutasteride that can virtually annihilate DHT in your body? While you whine on this website, the medications keep working in the majority of people, who use them (especially in mutual combination). It is only hypochondriac, hysterical, misinformed and defeatist guys on internet forums, who live in a different reality and continue with their blah-blah about the dreamed-of future cure.

    Hair loss is not only androgen driven, there are many other factors. I assume you are just being a troll, but fin/dut does not work for everyone. If you think we know the long term effects of being on fin/dut at a young age you are clueless. These are NOT great medications. A small amount of DHT reduction is actually healthy, for the prostate and for longevity. But if you feel 'happy' about reducing DHT in your body by 70-95%, then you really don't understand the hormone and it's importance. If it was the only option I had, I would take fin at a low dose. But it isn't.

    I'll prove to you how simple hair loss is compared to ageing and some of these diseases mentioned; I will castrate you, and that'll be the end of it for you, my friend. Kiss your balls goodbye, literally - and keep the hair. I bet a lot of people would choose to stop ageing, if all it took was cutting away a non-vital organ from the body. And later less invasive solutions would be developed.

    Castrating would NOT cure hair loss.
