    Because this is old news. We ready discussed it. It falls under the research lead by the university of pennysylvenia.

    Very interesting stuff.

    Clearly multiple ways that scientists are solving the problem, it just seems that clearly safety has to be tested as we are messing with our own bodies proteins and cells.

    I'm really just interested in a bridge treatment right now, Fin/Min aren't strong enough for my agressive hairloss, they only slow it down, I need another anti-androgen like CB or even BIM to hurry up!!

    You can forget this. This is old news: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17657240

    DHT -> DKK-1

    I highly doubt it would be any better than a topical finasteride.

    I follow a lot of the press releases fairly closely, particularly those from Penn, and I missed this, or at least the potential significance of this. When it comes down to it, all of the stuff we talk about on here is for the most part very theoretical in its effects (for example, there's nothing that says as good as CB or Histogen-style treatments seem like they could be means that they won't encounter some unsolvable problem somewhere down the road), and as long as we're talking about something that's theoretical but seemingly plausibly effective, this is as good a candidate as I've seen.

    Doesn't work. They are exploring drugs (and doing clinical trials) which antagonize DKK1 to repress the WNT pathway, DKN-01 and BHQ 880. If it would work i bet they would see some side effect in hair increase.

    Swooping, I'm not sure I follow you. From what you say, it sounds like trials and experiments are underway. When you say it "doesn't work," do you mean you have a gut instinct that it won't work or do you mean that they've tried every likely way to do this and none of them have worked?

    Also, if you could post any links or specifics on trials or experiments related to this, it would be greatly appreciated.
