    Default interesting Wiki addition

    In August 2012, Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania announced that they had discovered an enzyme which caused baldness. They found that the enzyme Prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) was found to be present on the scalp of balding men at far higher levels than normal, preventing hair follicles from maturing and therefore stopping them from working and growing hair. Dr George Cotsarelis and his dermatological team at the University say that they are in talks with several pharmaceutical companies about developing treatments which could be available in two years

    promising!

    There is a search bar in the top right corner of the site. It will allow you to search things like "PGD2" so that you can find past threads on the subject. However, everyone truly does appreciates the effort. Lets out this works out!

    Let's hope this reverses some stuff; The issue is: does it help people who have already lost the hair VS. people who have hair but are losing.
