Hair Follicle Cloning and Gene Therapy
Pallavi Kaulwar | Shrikant G. Pathak
Abstract: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is the most common factor for hair loss. Hair loss is due to continuous minimaturization of affect hair follicles. Hormones that play an important role in AGA are DHT hormone. Hair follicle cloning is the cure for the hair loss in which hair follicle cells are multiplied (in vitro). Three types of treatments in future such as cosmetics, medical and surgical can be correlate and block DHT may help to prevent hair loss. Developing new medications for the target hair loss and causes fewer side effects to reducing DHT levels is to use medications to stop 5 alpha reductase enzyme required for converting testosterone to DHT and development of new drugs that will be more powerfully signal certain cells (bulbs). Gene therapy is another technique of fixing it, changing the genes.
