Research Gives Hope to Cure Baldness in Future

Encouraging NewsIt looks like that  in  about five (5) years there could be a cure for baldness. I am sure that some of you have heard about the discovery made by Drs. Cotsarelis and Garza,  co-inventors on a patent owned by the University of Pennsylvania describing the PGD2 pathway as a target for inhibiting hair loss. via Perelman School of Medicine Experts Identify Inhibitor Causing Male Pattern Baldness and Target for Hair Loss Treatments.

Although you may not   suffer from total baldness, it is still worthwhile knowing about this possible cure. Don’t be discouraged that the article focuses on ‘male pattern baldness’.  Women will also benefit in the future from this discovery.

Below are some of the Key Points covered in the article:

  Significant protein Prostaglandin D synthase (PDG2), also called PGD2, showed up in high levels of men with baldness.

  Scientists learned that PDG2 was not in areas of the body which have much more hair.

  Scientists concluded that the PDG2 protein impedes hair follicle growth.

  Scientist hope to find a way to block PDG2, which could reverse balding, or prevent balding.

I am sure there are special thanks being expressed to the doctors and researchers who have devoted their time and efforts to the balding issue.
