A cure for baldness?

 

Scientists discover immune cells that trigger hair growth - paving the way to a cream treatment

 

Scientists in California found that certain immune cells stimulate hair growth

 

We already knew that faulty Tregs (as the cell is known) can cause allergies to peanuts or serious immune diseases

 

But now scientists can see that these cells are key to sustain hair growth

 

They believe treatment targeting Tregs could provide a cure to balding

I remember back when I was 21 reading in The Sun newspaper about a hairloss breakthrough which would put an end to hairloss within 5 years. Now I'm pushing 47 and it seems we're not much nearer.

 

Fingers crossed though that one of these 'breakthroughs' will one day be the real deal.

As always, very interesting to read about new treatments.

 

I do believe immune studies and auto-immune treatments will play a big role in immune-mediated alopecias -- like areata, totalis, universalis, etc, but I'm not yet convinced it plays a big enough roll in androgenic alopecia to be used as a treatment. And cost and the side effects of these medications will be an issue. But a good read nonetheless!

I tend not to get my hopes up with these sorts of things either, but at the same time, I look around at all the progress being made in medicine and technology, and I really don't see why this couldn't be possibility in the relatively near future... But as Pete mentioned, cures and answers have been "right around the corner" for decades.

 

Seriously though, eventually one of these predictions/findings has to pan out, right?
