Hair loss affects as many as two thirds of men under the age of 35, while approximately 30 million in the United States also suffer from androgenetic alopecia. While patterned genetic hair loss is generally considered the most common cause of permanent hair loss, researchers are beginning to explore environmental factors that may be contributing to the condition in men and women. The Future Science Research Centre, a branch of a cosmetics company based in Korea, recently presented findings on the relationship between air pollution and proteins involved in hair growth. The findings were presented at the 28th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress, according to Medical News Today. Researchers looked the effects of particulate matter — a chemical mix of solid matter and liquid droplets — affected human follicle dermal papilla cells (HFDPCs).

Chemotherapy offers cancer patients hope of recovery, but in many cases it comes with the anxiety of hair loss as a visible marker of illness. New research out of the United Kingdom shows a possible path to preventing hair loss in cancer patients who decide to undergo chemotherapy. Experiments at the Centre for Dermatology Research at the University of Manchester demonstrated a way to inhibit the toxic effect of taxanes — drugs that block cell division — on hair follicles. These CDK4/6 inhibitors could be the key to helping chemo patients avoid the added psychological and social stress of alopecia, according to Medical News Today. "When we bathed organ cultured human scalp hair follicles in CDK4/6 inhibitors, the hair follicles were much less susceptible to the damaging effects of taxanes," said Talveen S. Purba, who led the study published in EMBO Molecular Medicine. Researchers hope that using these inhibitors can improve the effectiveness of other hair preserving … [Read more...] about Researchers find promise in prevention of chemotherapy hair loss
