    Scientists report baldness breakthrough


    LONDON (AFP) - In a finding that could help treat an inherited form of baldness, a research team in Manchester claims to have discovered a protein "code" that instructs cells to sprout hair.

    By sending the code to more cells than usual, the scientists at the University of Manchester say they were able to breed mice with more fur -- a feat that could potentially be replicated in humans.

    "During human development, skin cells have the ability to turn into other types of cells to form hair follicles, sweat glands, teeth and nails," explained Denis Headon, who led the research.

    "Which cells are transformed into hair follicles is determined by three proteins that are produced by our genes," he said.

    "Our research has identified how one of these proteins working outside of the cell interacts at a molecular level to determine an individual's hair pattern as the embryonic skin spatially organises itself."

    The research was targeted at helping people with ectodermal dysplasia, an inherited condition that is characterised by the abnormal development of hair, skin, nails, teeth and sweat glands.

    Sounds like they better have a topical/site specific delivery or you will become Chewbacca.

    haha bro i love the patrick bateman mid-action wink avatar. i will be going bald sooner or later, i bet this type of treatment wont be approved by the FDA by that time. it has to go through mkore studies, it has to be tested, human studies, side effect studies blah blah blah and because one chimp grew a hair on the tip of its nipple the drug will be deemed unsafe for human use.

    i should start and FDA hating thread

    LMAO about your FDA comments, they're right on the money. For right now topical solutions are what we have. The approval process might take so long that we could die before that gets approved LOL.
