Cotsarelis Presentation - PGD2 inhibition was reversed with blocker
In the recent video uploaded from WCHR :
Starting from 19:40 to about 20:10 Cotsarelis says (with photo evidence) they were able to reverse the inhibition from pgd2 with a blocker. Im pretty sure this was human hair as well. I think this is very exciting, I wonder why they havent mentioned this more often? Perhaps they only tested it on to small amount of cases, and that wasn't enough evidence to publish it, or they could be holding back information for competitive reasons.
In other words a PGD2 blocker - with a good delivery into the right area of the follicle (he mentions were this is) should be able to reverse the effect of pgd2. That should give some serious growth but noone knows just how much, we will just have to be patient.
Keep the faith guys!
That's very interesting. I truly think this is the kind on technical informations we need.
Just one doubt.
From what I heard, PgDS elongated the anagen phase, while PgD2 shortened it (19:35).
No mention about:
whether PgDS could revert miniaturization
whether PgDS is the same agent which enlarges the hair follicles on the head of a toddler through his first years of life and brings the transition from lanugo hair to terminal hair
whether PgDS could revert the fibrosis commonly associated with miniaturization in AGA, or even better: if the fibrosis is just a consequence of miniaturiaztion, that is, enlarging the follicle again the fibrosis automatically disappears (not likely I think, but glad to hear any contribution)
Thanks to you all!!
Thanks for reply, I think they are not sure if a pgd2 blocker can revert minuaristiesed hairs fully. But this is the first proof that they can reverse the effects of pgd2 using a blocker. I think the process of hair formation early on in life is different and not relevant here, but im not sure.

Interesting enough but is there something we can get now that causes PGD2 inhibition?
how close would a product like this be to launching!?
Thats a question we should of got Desmond to ask Cotsarelis .

He also seemed pretty interested and excited by the idea of following up on this with those existing drugs, which is also really good.

OC459 is a PGD2 inhibitor
High levels of PGD2 present in asthma patients, so a plausible solution here is to inhibit PGD2, which is what Atopix therapeutics has done with OC459. The results are here:
High levels of PGD2 present in MPB on the scalp
Oh wow they have completed phase 3 trials? I wonder if Cotsarelis knows about this.
