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 hair loss is mainly genetic.
Responsible for the light’s 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. Various types of hair are affected in different ways, so this problem could be less noticeable for some men.
For many, the idea of getting a bald head drives to the edge of despair. Men who pretend to be 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
Researchers at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in San Diego have developed a method with the hair through the skin of mice sprouts. 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 look 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.
A Glimmer of Hope for Hair Loss Sufferers
For those battling the distressing issue of hair loss, a glimmer of hope has emerged on the horizon. The frustration of watching one’s hairline recede or witnessing thinning patches has long been a concern for men worldwide. Often attributed to genetics and the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), hair loss has remained a challenging problem to tackle. DHT, a byproduct of testosterone, accelerates hair loss in genetically predisposed individuals. The impact varies among different hair types and individuals, making it a source of significant concern for some men.
The discovery of this innovative method to combat hair loss in men represents a significant leap forward in the field of hair restoration. The groundbreaking research conducted by scientists at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in San Diego, utilizing stem cells and 3D cell carriers to stimulate hair growth, holds immense promise. With the potential to offer individuals a natural-looking solution to hair loss, this breakthrough instills newfound hope and confidence in those who have long struggled with this common concern.
