For Hair Loss Treatments, Is There A New Dawn? – Part 2
Hair loss affects women too and sometimes more severe than others. So you should always make sure the doctor prescribes the best medication for you. Know all about it here.
Helping Women With Hair Loss
They are associated with fewer side effects as one of the reasons why biotechs are so keen to develop topical products. It is associated with erectile dysfunction due to its effects on hormones in the body is one of the major limitations of Propecia and oral medication. It is not safe to be used in female hair loss sufferers as a patient group that has been traditionally neglected by the field besides because it acts systemically.
As it stimulates hair follicles through a completely novel process avoiding hormonal pathways altogether, Follicum is hopeful that its treatment could also be particularly suitable for women.
Alenfall says that with a new, non-hormonal, mechanism of action, there are several potential advantages. None have been seen in the clinical program performed so far as the side effects of current therapies are not expected. For women as well, based on this, Follicum’s drug might become a safe and efficacious treatment option.
The topical nature of the therapy means that it does not come with the safety warnings of oral drugs and studies so far suggest minimal side effects while Cassiopea’s product does act on DHT. Which began enrolment last November, as a result, the company is now thereby embarking on a phase II trial of the product in female patients.
Harbort then says it's problematic because of the cycle of social complication that affects a patient’s self-esteem as there are so few treatment options that work for hair loss. There’s a huge unmet need as it's very embarrassing for them and studies thereafter show that women are even more likely to suffer these psychological complications than men.
Restarting Hair Growth From The Roots
Other companies have begun investing in early-stage research as the sheer size of the hair loss market means. To find an entirely new class of hair drugs, as they aim to try and understand more about the molecular mechanisms that underpin human hair growth and loss.
Research efforts are ongoing to try and find yet new ways of reviving these follicles even those that have been long dormant as even completely bald individuals have 100,000 hair follicles still present all over their scalp.
One particularly innovative way of doing this is the Italian biotech Giuliani has been exploring. It has identified completely new pathways for stimulating hair follicles through studying existing drugs for other conditions that cause unwanted body hair growth as a side effect over the past four years.
Ralf Paus, a consultant scientist for Giuliani, now says effective at promoting human hair growth in organ culture, they have already found two or three compounds that work on these pathways. To see whether they are safe enough to topically administer them to volunteers and then a clinical trial is a next step. This will be a real breakthrough if they deliver hair growth.
Paus believes that there are still some fundamental questions about the science of hair growth that need to be understood while the current picture for the future of hair loss treatments is perhaps brighter than ever before. They could well go a long way to solving baldness for good if addressed in the coming years.
He further said that these tiny mini-organs follow an autonomous inbuilt clock that drives it through this cycle of growth, regressions, resting is one of the biggest mysteries about hair follicles.
That regulates it, this clock sits in the follicle itself but we don’t know the mechanism. They could target it pharmacologically if they understood how this organ ticks. Would be very powerful hair drugs when it comes to drugs that can interfere with this inbuilt clock mechanism in the human hair follicle.
Winding Up The Discussion With A Few More Words
As we conclude, we find that both men and women are at the risk of having a receding hairline. Women are more psychologically affected as they are always worried about their appearances more than men. So, research should focus on the remedies for women more than men. This insists taking into consideration all the hormonal changes occurring in the body of women where the men are less likely to be having unwanted hormonal changes when compared to women.
So, make sure you reach out to those with pattern baldness helping them cope up with the condition physically, mentally, and emotionally. We are sure you have a bright future with the best remedies for hair loss.
