baldness may be caused by a single chemical

When the surviving stem cells receive the signal to regenerate, they divide, make new cell and develop into a new follicle.” However, the scientists found that when a hair follicle dies, the stem cell reservoir still remains. “Even when a hair follicle kills itself, it never kills its stem cell reservoir. A single chemical could be responsible for whether people go bald or not, a new study has found. “When the surviving stem cells receive the signal to regenerate, they divide, make new cells and develop into a new follicle,” Wang said The study authors added that it may be possible to stimulate hair growth by activating follicle stem cells, but more research on the subject needs to be done. The study says the discovery of the chemical could “not only treat baldness, but ultimately speed wound healing”. Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, found that a sole chemical is responsible for hair follicles dividing and dying. In the UK, approximately two thirds of men will face male pattern baldness. It helps activate some hair follicle cells to produce new life, and later, it helps orchestrate apoptosis, the process of cell death. (). Continue reading.
