    I'm a little confused about the significance of this. If the lack of hair on the mouse is not due to the same factors that cause MPB in people than why would the fact that this medicine regrew hair on them have any significance for human MPB? This is meant to be a serious question.

    I read about this story yesterday and thought it sounded quite interesting, but the balding community is understandably sceptical of any such news... especially when there are pics of mice with hairy backs.

    These stories still give me hope, even if it's just that at this very moment people are working on solutions that we have no knowledge of.

    I'm not skeptical, I'm ready to believe, baby! I'm more optimistic than ever these days. I just don't understand the significance of testing on mice, particularly in this case. I'm hoping to read the full article tomorrow, which looks like it's in a reputable article. Maybe that will shed some more light on why they think the mice tests are relevant in this case.

    I read the journal article itself. From that alone, it sounds like this is a piece, maybe a promising piece, but they don't have any evidence that this is a slam dunk or anything and they're not at all claiming it is. I mean, maybe it will turn out to be and the researchers know more than they're letting on in the journal article.
