Possible Cure For Baldness Found In Osteoporosis Drug

Bald man from the back

Researchers may have found a possible panacea to baldness using a drug originally meant to treat osteoporosis.

CsA would not be suitable as a baldness treatment due to its other well-known side-effects - however the researchers found that another drug, created to treat osteoporosis was even more effective at enhancing hair growth.

One of the researchers on the project Nathan Hawkshaw said the next step for the drug would be for a clinical trial to find out whether WAY-316606 is safe.

Now only two drugs - minoxidil and finasteride - are used for treatment of male-pattern balding (androgenetic alopecia).

A side effect of a drug that was originally used as an immunosuppressant could one day be used to treat baldness.

The drug targets a protein called SFRP1 which reduces the hair growth and is also responsible for baldness.

More significantly still, hair began to grow within two days on the scalp hair follicles tested as part of the research. But don't get too excited: Although the study authors concluded that WAY-316606 has the "potential to treat human hair loss disorders", it has only been tested on hair samples - not on actual, living humans.

Ms Fyffe-Marshall wrote that about 20 minutes into the encounter, the misunderstanding escalated "almost instantly". Prendergast's manager told CBS News that a longer video of the incident will be released Tuesday.

The findings appear in the journal PLOS Biology.

But they could soon have the choice between being bald or having a thick thatch of hair, as scientists claim they might have found a cure for male pattern baldness. and people could see results within DAYS.

The drug causes a number of side effects like headaches, vomiting, and high blood pressure.

There is a third option of a hair transplant, but this can be costly and out of reach for many men. However, both treatments can have side effects and often lead to disappointing results.

The study at the Manchester university's Centre for Dermatology Research studied the molecular workings of the immunosuppressive cancer drug, Cyclosporine A (CsA).

While you wait for a surefire solution to hair loss, consider embracing your baldness.

"That creates our analysis clinically really relevant, as most hair loss lookup studies merely utilize cell civilization", he explained.
