4 Promising Potential Cures for Baldness That Could be Saviors in Forthcoming Years

Two-thirds of men in America face a good degree of Hair loss by the age of 35 and before they reach 50, around 85% experience a significant thinning of hair as per the study of American Hair Loss Association.

With rising figures like these, researching a successful baldness cure has become the ultimate goal of every scientist. Even though there are a few tested treatments for hair restoration that are endorsed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, none of these have made any impact with the common crowd. Here are a few breakthroughs in the field of hair restoration, which could create a revolution in the future:

3-D Spheroids: Researchers from the University of Durham in England and ColumbiaUniversityCenter recently announced that they have come up with a solution that could save stop hair loss. One of the lead researchers, Dr. Angela Christino stated that her group of researchers took some samples of hair from the head of seven subjects. They then cultured them, and turned them over to induce clumping in the form of 3-D Spheroids so they would maintain their identity. Five out of the seven cases that were grafted onto mice showed positive results where the grafted clumps of hair helped induce the cells to grow hair naturally.

Stress-Buster Compounds: Scientists of the University of California, Los Angeles have come up with an ingenious method of blocking stress hormones (corticotrophin-releasing factor) with a compound. When this was experimented on mice, the results were quite impressive, and mice grew thick lustrous hair in just 5 days.

Bimatoprost: This happens to be an active ingredient present in Latisse, a drug used to cure glaucoma. When it was noticed that Latisse users grew thick eye lashes, they requested for Latisse to be used for the purpose of growing lashes.

Fat Cells: Researchers at the YaleUniversity stumbled upon a new discovery that could unveil the close to impossible task of growing new locks. It was discovered that once the hair dies, the thickness of scalp’s fat layer greatly reduces. This layer of fat covers most of the scalp; with the fat cells gone, hair does not grow. The possible reason could be that this fat layer is responsible for the production of molecules by the name PDGF (platelet derived growth factors) which is crucial for hair growth. There is still a long way of research to go before any substantial remedy can be derived from this discovery.
