The Latest News on Finding a Cure for Hair Loss

Finding a cure for hair loss may be drawing closer, according to an article from Medical News Report.

A number of recent research breakthroughs include a study by scientists at the University of Edinburgh who have discovered 287 genetic regions involved in male pattern baldness.

This could help to both predict the likelihood of a man experiencing severe hair loss as well as set new targets for drug developments.

Other research studies come from the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center who have identified a protein called KROX20 that plays a critical role in hair pigmentation.

They will now work to discover whether this protein and its associated gene could prevent healthy functioning and lead to male pattern baldness.

For now, both medical solutions and minimally invasive hair transplants remain the safest and most reliable way to combat hair loss.
