I’ve just been reading about your info from Amsterdam.
In addition to this, I was wondering if you in the nearest future see any new drugs against baldness?
I’ve read about some new test.
1) Some Japanese researchers blame the Sox21 gene for baldness.
2) Some researchers blame the wnt gene for baldness.
3) Some researchers blame the P2Y5 gene for baldness.
Because of my research for hope of any new treatments, I’ve become confused. All these different tests and scientists blame different genes for baldness. Can there really be so many genes, which cause baldness? And where does this leave Propecia, if all this new research blame something else then just DHT for baldness?
I hope you understand my wondering mind.
There are many, many genes for balding and only some have been recognized. A few on the X chromosome have been highlighted by the company HairDX, but genes are constantly being found on chromosomes beyond the X chromosome. Genetic hair loss is very complex (not like the eye color of the fruit fly) and it is the many genes that make the discovery of an effective new drug. Propecia just blocks the DHT hormone and does not address the various genes and approaches you asked about above.
