Researchers have discovered a new method to combat hair loss in men

First, it moves to the rear, then it disappears slowly in the middle of the header: Up to 80 percent of European men under the age of hair loss. For some it goes up to the bald, the other remains nothing more than a wreath around the head. However, you can hardly do anything because of the hair loss is mainly genetic.

Responsible for the lights expectant hair, the metabolite of the male hormone testosterone: dihydrotestosterone, in short DHT. The more testosterone is converted into DHT, the faster the hair loss begins when a man is genetically predisposed to do so.

Hair loss

This helps in the case of sparse, thinning hair

A lot of pushing the idea to get a bald head, to the edge of despair. Men who pretend to be the thinning hair unattractive, can now look forward but: American scientists have made a breakthrough in the exploration of male hair loss.

With stem cells, with the bald head

Researchers at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in San Diego have developed a method with the hair through the skin of mice sprout can. Their study was recently published in the science magazine “Science Daily”. Therefore, the researchers used for their experiment indexed human pluripotent (still in the development stage) stem cells. These human cells combined with the help of an artificial 3D cell carrier with cells in the skin of mice. The complicated process worked. The mice looking for additional hair growth naturally through the follicles of the skin.

Their findings the researchers presented at the annual Meeting of the international Association of stem cell research in Los Angeles. “Now we have found a robust, controlled method, in order to develop natural-looking hair that grows through the skin and by using cells, the endless are present in the human body,” said Alexey Terskikh, one of the study’s authors. The necessary human stem cells, one could win with a simple Blood test.

The researchers want to apply the same method coming soon people. A group of volunteers, there are certainly enough.
