A tube-like invagination of the EPIDERMIS from which the hair shaft develops and into which SEBACEOUS GLANDS open. The hair follicle is lined by a cellular inner and outer root sheath of epidermal origin and is invested with a fibrous sheath derived from the dermis. (Stedman, 26th ed) Follicles of very long hairs extend into the subcutaneous layer of tissue under the SKIN.
A filament-like structure consisting of a shaft which projects to the surface of the SKIN from a root which is softer than the shaft and lodges in the cavity of a HAIR FOLLICLE. It is found on most surfaces of the body.

An inflammatory, pruritic disease of the skin and mucous membranes, which can be either generalized or localized. It is characterized by distinctive purplish, flat-topped papules having a predilection for the trunk and flexor surfaces. The lesions may be discrete or coalesce to form plaques. Histologically, there is a "saw-tooth" pattern of epidermal hyperplasia and vacuolar alteration of the basal layer of the epidermis along with an intense upper dermal inflammatory infiltrate composed predominantly of T-cells. Etiology is unknown.

Any of several generalized skin disorders characterized by dryness, roughness, and scaliness, due to hypertrophy of the stratum corneum epidermis. Most are genetic, but some are acquired, developing in association with other systemic disease or genetic syndrome.
Small, sacculated organs found within the DERMIS. Each gland has a single duct that emerges from a cluster of oval alveoli. Each alveolus consists of a transparent BASEMENT MEMBRANE enclosing epithelial cells. The ducts from most sebaceous glands open into a HAIR FOLLICLE, but some open on the general surface of the SKIN. Sebaceous glands secrete SEBUM.
A disease of the pilosebaceous unit, presenting clinically as grouped follicular papules or plaques with associated hair loss. It is caused by mucinous infiltration of tissues, and usually involving the scalp, face, and neck. It may be primary (idiopathic) or secondary to mycosis fungoides or reticulosis.
Mucoid states characterized by the elevated deposition and accumulation of mucin (mucopolysaccharides) in dermal tissue. The fibroblasts are responsible for the production of acid mucopolysaccharides (GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS) in the ground substance of the connective tissue system. When fibroblasts produce abnormally large quantities of mucopolysaccharides as hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, or heparin, they accumulate in large amounts in the dermis.

Phase II trial of paclitaxel and cisplatin in metastatic and recurrent carcinoma of the uterine cervix. (1/646)

PURPOSE: Both paclitaxel and cisplatin have moderate activity in patients with metastatic or recurrent cancer of the cervix, and the combination of these two agents has shown activity and possible synergism in a variety of solid tumors. We administered this combination to patients with metastatic or recurrent cervical cancer to evaluate its activity. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty-four consecutive patients were treated on an outpatient basis with paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 administered intravenously over a 3-hour period followed by cisplatin 75 mg/m2 administered intravenously with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor support. The chemotherapy was administered every 3 weeks for a maximum of six courses. RESULTS: Sixteen patients (47%; 95% confidence interval, 30% to 65%) achieved an objective response, including five complete responses and 11 partial responses. Responses occurred in 28% of patients with disease within the radiation field only and in 57% of patients with disease involving other sites. The median duration of response was 5.5 months, and the median times to progression and survival for all patients were 5 and 9 months, respectively. Grade 3 or 4 toxicities included anemia in 18% of patients and granulocytopenia in 15% of patients. Fifty-three percent of patients developed some degree of neurotoxicity; 21% of cases were grade 2 or worse. CONCLUSION: The combination of paclitaxel with cisplatin seems relatively well tolerated and moderately active in patients with metastatic or recurrent cervical cancer. The significant incidence of neurotoxicity is of concern, and alternative methods of administration of the two agents could be evaluated. Then, further study of this combination, alone or with the addition of other active agents, is warranted.  (+info)

Phase I-II study of gemcitabine and carboplatin in stage IIIB-IV non-small-cell lung cancer. (2/646)

PURPOSE: Platinum-based chemotherapy currently represents standard treatment for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. Gemcitabine is one of the most interesting agents currently in use in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer, and high response rates have been reported when it is administered in combination with cisplatin. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the combination of gemcitabine and carboplatin in a phase I-II study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Chemotherapy-naive patients with stage IIIB-IV non-small-cell lung cancer received carboplatin at area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) 5 mg/mL/min and gemcitabine at an initial dose of 800 mg/m2, subsequently escalated by 100 mg/m2 per step. Gemcitabine was administered on days 1 and 8 and carboplatin on day 8 of the 28-day cycle. Dose escalation proceeded up to dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), which was defined as grade 4 neutropenia or thrombocytopenia or grade 3 nonhematologic toxicity. RESULTS: Neutropenia was DLT, inasmuch as it occurred in three of five patients receiving gemcitabine 1,200 mg/m2. Nonhematologic toxicities were mild. Gemcitabine 1,100 mg/m2 plus carboplatin AUC 5 was recommended for phase II studies. An objective response was observed in 13 (50%) of 26 patients, including four complete responses (15%) and nine partial responses (35%). Median duration of response was 13 months (range, 3 to 23 months). Median overall survival was 16 months (range, 3 to 26 months). CONCLUSION: The combination of gemcitabine and carboplatin is well tolerated and active. Neutropenia was DLT. The observed activity matches that observable in cisplatin-gemcitabine studies, whereas duration of response and survival are even higher. A phase II trial is under way.  (+info)

Longevity, stress response, and cancer in aging telomerase-deficient mice. (3/646)

Telomere maintenance is thought to play a role in signaling cellular senescence; however, a link with organismal aging processes has not been established. The telomerase null mouse provides an opportunity to understand the effects associated with critical telomere shortening at the organismal level. We studied a variety of physiological processes in an aging cohort of mTR-/- mice. Loss of telomere function did not elicit a full spectrum of classical pathophysiological symptoms of aging. However, age-dependent telomere shortening and accompanying genetic instability were associated with shortened life span as well as a reduced capacity to respond to stresses such as wound healing and hematopoietic ablation. In addition, we found an increased incidence of spontaneous malignancies. These findings demonstrate a critical role for telomere length in the overall fitness, reserve, and well being of the aging organism.  (+info)

Increased risk of chronic graft-versus-host disease, obstructive bronchiolitis, and alopecia with busulfan versus total body irradiation: long-term results of a randomized trial in allogeneic marrow recipients with leukemia. Nordic Bone Marrow Transplantation Group. (4/646)

Leukemic patients receiving marrow from HLA-identical sibling donors were randomized to treatment with either busulfan 16 mg/kg (n = 88) or total body irradiation ([TBI] n = 79) in addition to cyclophosphamide 120 mg/kg. The patients were observed for a period of 5 to 9 years. Busulfan-treated patients had an increased risk of veno-occlusive disease (VOD) of the liver (12% v 1%, P =.01) and hemorrhagic cystitis (32% v 10%, P =.003). Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) was similar in the two groups, but the 7-year cumulative incidence of chronic GVHD was 59% in the busulfan-treated group versus 47% in the TBI group (P =.05). Death from GVHD was more common in the busulfan group (22% v 3%, P <.001). Obstructive bronchiolitis occurred in 26% of the busulfan patients but in only 5% of the TBI patients (P <.01). Complete alopecia developed in 8 busulfan patients and partial alopecia in 17, versus five with partial alopecia in the TBI group (P <.001). Cataracts occurred in 5 busulfan-treated patients and 16 TBI patients (P =.02). The incidence of relapse after 7 years was 29% in both groups. Seven-year transplant-related mortality (TRM) in patients with early disease was 21% in the busulfan group and 12% in the TBI group. In patients with more advanced disease, the corresponding figures were 64% and 22%, respectively (P =.004). Leukemia-free survival (LFS) in patients with early disease was 68% in busulfan-treated patients and 66% in TBI patients. However, 7-year LFS in patients with more advanced disease was 17% in the busulfan group versus 49% in the TBI group (P <.01). In patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in first chronic phase, 7-year LFS was 72% and 83% in the two groups, respectively.  (+info)

Clomipramine-induced urinary retention in a cat. (5/646)

A 10-year-old, female, spayed shorthair with presumed psychogenic alopecia was treated with clomipramine (1 mg/kg body weight/day). The cat developed urinary retention within 2 days. Clomipramine was discontinued. Clinical signs resolved over the next 7 days. The urinary retention was attributed to the anticholinergic effects of clomipramine.  (+info)

Identification of a genetic defect in the hairless gene in atrichia with papular lesions: evidence for phenotypic heterogeneity among inherited atrichias. (6/646)

Recently, we showed that atrichia with papular lesions (APL), a rare inherited form of alopecia, is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait in a large inbred kindred of Israeli-Arab origin. Furthermore, we mapped the APL locus to a 5-cM region of chromosome 8p12 in this family. The human "hairless" gene is a candidate target gene for the disease mutation because it maps to the APL locus and because it was recently found to be mutated in a related but clinically distinct form of alopecia known as "alopecia universalis" or "congenital alopecia." In the present study, the coding sequence of the hairless gene was compared by reverse transcription-PCR in fibroblast cell lines derived from an affected patient and an unrelated individual. We identified a single-base deletion (3434delC) in the hairless gene that cosegregated with the disease phenotype in the family. This deletion is predicted to cause a frameshift mutation in the highly conserved C-terminal part of the hairless protein, a region putatively involved in the transcription factor activity of the hairless gene product. The present results are indicative of phenotypic heterogeneity in inherited atrichias caused by mutations in the hairless gene, suggesting different roles for the regions mutated in APL and in other forms of congenital atrichia during hair development.  (+info)

Medical treatments for balding in men. (7/646)

Two drugs are available for the treatment of balding in men. Minoxidil, a topical product, is available without a prescription in two strengths. Finasteride is a prescription drug taken orally once daily. Both agents are modestly effective in maintaining (and sometimes regrowing) hair that is lost as a result of androgenic alopecia. The vertex of the scalp is the area that is most likely to respond to treatment, with little or no hair regrowth occurring on the anterior scalp or at the hairline. Side effects of these medications are minimal, making them suitable treatments for this benign but psychologically disruptive condition.  (+info)

Insulin gene polymorphism and premature male pattern baldness in the general population. (8/646)

Insulin is found in hair follicles and may play a role in the regulation of androgen metabolism and the hair growth cycle, which are relevant to the loss of scalp hair known as male pattern baldness. An excess of dihydrotestosterone on balding scalp indicates that the condition is androgen dependent. Premature male pattern baldness may be the male phenotype of familial polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition characterized by high levels of androgens and insulin that has been linked to insulin gene polymorphism. Therefore, we studied possible associations between relevant insulin gene polymorphisms and premature male pattern baldness in the general community. We examined the distribution of three dimorphic restriction fragment length polymorphisms: HphI, PstI and FokI in cases consisting of 56 men aged 18-30 years with significant baldness, and in 107 control men aged 50 years or more with no indication of baldness. No significant differences between cases and controls in allele, genotype or haplotype frequencies were identified. We conclude that, in the general population, the insulin gene is not associated with premature male pattern baldness.  (+info)

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have identified an abnormal amount a protein called Prostaglandin D2 in the bald scalp of men with male pattern baldness, a discovery that may lead directly to new treatments for the most common cause of hair loss in men. In both human and animal models, researchers found that a prostaglandin known as PGD2 and its derivative, 15-dPGJ2, inhibit hair growth. The PGD2-related inhibition occurred through a receptor called GPR44, which is a promising therapeutic target for androgenetic alopecia in both men and women with hair loss and thinning.. Male pattern baldness strikes 8 of 10 men under 70 years old, and causes hair follicles to shrink and produce microscopic hairs, which grow for a shorter duration of time than normal follicles.. Researchers took an unbiased approach when scanning for potential biological causes of baldness, looking in scalp tissue from balding and non-bald spots from men with male pattern ...

Androgenic Alopecia or male or female pattern baldness:. Male Pattern Baldness:. More than 95% of hair thinning in men is defined as male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia. Male pattern baldness is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead (known as a receding hairline) and/or a thinning crown (balding to the area known as the vertex. Both become more pronounced until they eventually meet, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair around the back of the head. The trigger for this type of baldness is DHT, a powerful sex hormone, body- and facial-hair growth promoter that can adversely affect the prostate as well as the hair located on the head. The mechanism by which DHT accomplishes this is not yet fully understood. In genetically-prone scalps, i.e. those experiencing male or female pattern baldness, DHT initiates a process of follicular miniaturization, in which the hair follicle begins to deteriorate. As a consequence, the hairs growth phase (anagen) is ...

Propecia For Male Pattern Hair Loss. There are many medications that can deal with male hair loss. A well known medication is known as Propecia. This particular medication is designed to specifically help men who are experiencing male pattern hair loss. In clinical studies, hair count increased during the first year and was maintained in those that took Propecia for 24 months. If you wish to take Propecia, it is useful to know how this medication can possibly help you in your hair loss.. Propecia, in generic terms is known as Finasteride. It is known to help men that are dealing with male pattern hair loss, also known as DHT. This particular pattern of baldness and hair loss is known to directly affect men because of genetics that are inherited from both their mother and father. The genes cause the hormone of DHT to react with the enzymes that are located in the scalp and hair region. When this happens, hair begins to thin and eventually causes for it to fall out completely.. Propecia is a ...

Over 95 percent of hair loss cases are caused by androgenetic alopecia, a hereditary hair loss condition that affects over three million Americans annually. This condition causes hair miniaturization, a phenomenon in which hair becomes thinner and finer each time it progresses through the growth cycle. Eventually, the hair falls out and ceases to grow entirely.. But when and how much hair loss occurs is often different in men than it is in women. Regardless of gender, however, the earlier one recognizes the early stages of androgenetic alopecia, the sooner one can take steps to slow or stop its progression and prevent further shedding.. When Do the Early Stages of Androgenetic Alopecia Typically Manifest?. Men are more likely to notice and experience pattern baldness earlier than women. 25 percent of American men see symptoms of male pattern baldness before the age of 21, approximately 66 percent of men experience some degree of loss by the age of 35, and 85 percent of men see significant ...
What are the best Male Patter Baldness Treatments in 2018? Here are Natural and Scientific ways to cure Male Pattern Baldness or Androgenic Alopecia for this
Androgenic alopecia (also known as androgenetic alopecia or alopecia androgenetica) is a common form of hair loss in both men and women. In men, this condition is also known as male-pattern baldness. Hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above both temples. Over time, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic M shape. Hair also thins at the crown of the head, often progressing to partial or complete baldness. The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male-pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenetic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness. A variety of genetic and environmental factors likely play a role in causing androgenetic alopecia. Although researchers are studying risk factors that may contribute to this condition, most of these factors remain unknown. Researchers have determined that this form of hair loss is related to hormones called androgens, particularly an androgen called ...
Many scientists believe that the appropriate dosage of hair vitamins may stop and reverse guy pattern baldness, or MPB. MPB is the man variation of the type of hair reduction well-known as androgenic alopecia. It has been determined that androgenic alopecia counts for 95% of all hair reduction in guys.. The idea that man pattern baldness is countered with all the appropriate hair vitamins is hopeful information indeed for millions of males, because despite the traditional wisdom the wide most of males detest losing their hair as a result of MPB and discover it to be emotionally truly painful. While it is actually true that some males happen to be thus appealing in different methods, or because they happen to have looks that fit hand-in-glove with balding, that they dont care about losing their hair as they age, they are just a really little minority of guys.. Most guys are not the good-looking stars or dont fit the image of the recognized aging genius novelist that are portrayed in the media ...

Alopecia is defined as any type of balding. There are many forms of alopecia. Male pattern baldness is called androgenic alopecia and affects 80% of men worldwide. Alopecia areata is defined as patches of baldness on the scalp, which is an autoimmune disorder. Alopecia universalis is the complete loss of hair on the head. Traction Alopecia is the loss of hair due to strain over a long period of time like wearing your hair in a tight pony tail or the forces that hair extensions put on the hair that they are hanging from. About 60% of women worldwide suffer from some sort of traction alopecia!. With no cure in sight, alopecia comes with very deep psychological consequences. Men and women all over the world who suffer from this condition usually feel less confident than their peers. The acute and asymptomatic characteristics of alopecia give no warning signs as to when and where it will hit, making it a very difficult condition to deal with..

Androgenetic alopecia is a type of hair loss that is acquired genetically and it affects both men and women. This is what is commonly called male or female pattern baldness. This more prevalent in men, but it is much more devastating when it affects women.. If you have seen some middle aged men sporting a receding hairline, that is a classic example of male pattern baldness. A hairline that goes backward forming a U or W shape, or balding that starts from the crown area best characterize this type of hair loss. In women it presents as a thinning or balding along the hairline that runs in the middle of the head. Sometimes it is also a diffuse thinning and shedding of hairs all over the scalp. It is a gradual process but hair sheds excessively and never goes back.. Androgenetic alopecia is an autoimmune condition in which your body attacks your own hairs. The main factor that is at play here is the male hormone androgen. Maybe you are raising your eyebrows at this point thinking that you are a ...

The surgical treatments for male hair loss are usually hair transplant for men, follicles that are implanted on the parts that you dont have hair in. They do this by picking up hair lobes from places that you have them a lot, and placing them in to places that you dont have them in. When it comes male pattern baldness, this usually means the temporal area and the forehead. Sometimes it could also mean the back-top part of your head.. There are natural supplements that are designed for these purposes also, and for that reason I will cover them shortly here. Usually these products are 5-alpha-reductas enzyme inhibitors - this means they prevent some of the male sex hormones from changing in to other forms right inside the hair lobes. The other forms are ones that are going to destroy the follicles. To get help from them you will have to constantly use them for long periods of time, and for best results, even before you start losing hair.. There is another way also, but it requires constant ...

BACKGROUND: Accurate identification of follicular streamers versus follicular scars on horizontal scalp biopsy sections is important to differentiate between cicatricial and noncicatricial alopecias. However, distinguishing between them can be difficult especially in nonoptimal specimens. The utility of elastic Verhoeff-Van Gieson (EVG) stain in cicatricial alopecias has been described on vertical sections, but its evaluation on horizontal sections has not been performed. METHODS: Sixty-four cicatricial alopecias (25 lichen planopilaris, 29 central centrifugal cicatricial alopecias, and 10 discoid lupus erythematosus) and 53 noncicatricial alopecias (34 androgenic alopecia, 8 telogen effluvium, and 11 alopecia areata) were identified, and EVG staining was performed on horizontal sections ...
Acute telogen effluvium (ATE) is often associated with female androgenetic alopecia (FAA), but predictive factors of ATE-FAA association and clinical factors or therapies that may influence the progression of ATE to chronic telogen effluvium (CTE) have not been reported. We have identified predictive factors of ATE-FAA association and retrospectively evaluated the impact of therapies on the progression to CTE. Conclusions are as follows: (i) Triggering cause is a significant independent factor that predicts association of ATE with FAA. (ii) Triggering causes with higher risk of concurrent FAA are severe diet, iron deficiency, and thyroid dysfunction. (iii) Patients suffering ATE may benefit from different therapeutic approaches (depending on which is the triggering cause) to prevent or treat the association with FAA. (iv) Minoxidil use shows a trend to lower the percentage of progression to CTE. (v) Apart from treating the precipitating cause, the different additional oral treatments used have ...

Both topical minoxidil and oral finasteride can be used to slow or even halt the loss of hair due to male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia. Both medications should also be used to slow the hair follicle miniaturation process that eventually results in hair loss. Shock loss is a phenomenon oberserved in some post-transplant patients, in which existing hair in the thinning regions that was transplanted is partially lost. Here are our thoughts about preventing post-transplant shock loss.. 1. Finasteride is effective at reducing the amount of shedding of normal hairs in the thinning zones after hair transplantation. 2. The timing of hair transplantation is important - if you are a young person experiencing early hair loss and have a large density of miniaturized hairs (impending hair loss), then hair transplant surgery may accelrate your current hair loss pattern. 3. Plan for a sufficient number of grafts to offset any marginal amount of shock loss of existing hair.. 4. Minimize ...
