Default Potential baldness cure could hit the shelves in 2 years

Saw this on reddit today. Being perceived as a potential baldness cure by blocking a particular enzyme that is responsible for the follicle stopping growth.

This sounds good.......

"He said the finding raised the possibility of not only stopping hair loss,
but of bald men also being able to regrow full heads of hair"

Apparently, reducing prostaglandins and the enzymes responsible for producing prostaglandins on the scalp will be important in the future of hair restoration. However, I personally believe it will be another "dog in the fight," akin to minoxidil and finasteride; but I'm not sure hailing it as a "hair loss cure" is fair.

However, I look forward to seeing further research and actual product development.

Agreed future ht doc.

This was found on the /r/science/ subreddit.

I think a hair loss cure will be comprised of many steps and levels until we reach the scientific knowledge to actually combat it in a single drug. Right now we use finasteride, minoxidil and hair transplants to achieve a satisfactory approach, but most of that is reactive not proactive.

We need further advancement, like this here, to take us into the proactive fight and really give us follically challenged individuals a fair chance!

Why did you remove the link? I thought The Telegraph was fairly reputable. Although, I'm not sure of that, and I noticed what one poster pointed out was true: nothing in the article itself mentions the two years that the title claims.

Even if its an alternative to Finasteride without the side effects and effects on other functions. Im sure everyone will be happy to welcome that.

Outside links are a violation of our terms of service and not hosted on the forums. It has nothing to do with the credibility of the article itself.

heres a thought.....
if a cure does come out that makes all dormant hair follicles regrow hair, does that mean the areas that have been trnsplanted will become twice as thick? Would it affect transplanted hairs if the old follicles start to grow??
