Alopecia: Absence of hair from areas where it is normally present.Alopecia Areata: Loss of scalp and body hair involving microscopically inflammatory patchy areas.Scalp: The outer covering of the calvaria. It is composed of several layers: SKIN; subcutaneous connective tissue; the occipitofrontal muscle which includes the tendinous galea aponeurotica; loose connective tissue; and the pericranium (the PERIOSTEUM of the SKULL).Hair Follicle: 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.Hair: 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.Minoxidil: A potent direct-acting peripheral vasodilator (VASODILATOR AGENTS) that reduces peripheral resistance and produces a fall in BLOOD PRESSURE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p371)Scalp DermatosesFolliculitis: Inflammation of follicles, primarily hair follicles.Dermoscopy: A noninvasive technique that enables direct microscopic examination of the surface and architecture of the SKIN.Tinea Capitis: Ringworm of the scalp and associated hair mainly caused by species of MICROSPORUM; TRICHOPHYTON; and EPIDERMOPHYTON, which may occasionally involve the eyebrows and eyelashes.Trichotillomania: Compulsion to pull out one's hair.Cicatrix: The fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue during the process of WOUND HEALING.Photophobia: Abnormal sensitivity to light. This may occur as a manifestation of EYE DISEASES; MIGRAINE; SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE; MENINGITIS; and other disorders. Photophobia may also occur in association with DEPRESSION and other MENTAL DISORDERS.Lichen Planus: 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.Eyebrows: Curved rows of HAIR located on the upper edges of the eye sockets.Triethylenephosphoramide: An insect chemosterilant and an antineoplastic agent.Hypotrichosis: Presence of less than the normal amount of hair. (Dorland, 27th ed)Skin: The outer covering of the body that protects it from the environment. It is composed of the DERMIS and the EPIDERMIS.Ichthyosis: 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.Sebaceous Glands: 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.

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..

... 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 ...

... is a common form of hair loss in both men and women. In men, hair is usually lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above both temples and is usually referred to as male-pattern baldness. Over time, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic M shape. Hair also thins near the top of the head, often progressing to partial or complete baldness. The pattern of hair loss in women differs from men (female pattern hair loss). 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 this condition. Mutations in the AR gene have also been associated with androgenetic alopecia ...
Many scientists believe that the appropriate dosage of hair vitamins may stop and reverse guy pattern baldness, or MPB.

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.

First, Androgenetic, consisting of ANDROGEN (Any of the various hormones that control the appearance and development of masculine characteristics such as testosterone). And GENETIC-the inheritance of genes from either the mother or the fathers side of the family. Add AGE, which when coupled with genetics, represents a time clock that will signal the hair follicle to produce an enzyme named 5 alpha reductase.. When the testosterone present in the follicle combines with the enzyme 5 alpha reductase, it produces dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Hair follicle receptors are sensitive to DHT and thereby start the process of male or female pattern hair loss.. Second, ALOPECIA meaning hair loss, of which there are many types.. Put simply, scientists are working against aging, hormones and genetics. This is no easy task. Add the fact that male or female pattern hair loss is not life threatening, and it is easy to see why many physicians do not view hair loss as a priority in scientific research.. What is ...

N2 - Treatment of cancer patients with chemotherapeutics like cyclophosphamide often causes alopecia as a result of premature and aberrant catagen. Because the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signals anagen hair follicles to enter catagen, we hypothesized that EGFR signaling may be involved in cyclophosphamide-induced alopecia. To test this hypothesis, skin-targeted Egfr mutant mice were generated by crossing floxed Egfr and Keratin 14 promoter-driven Cre recombinase mice. Cyclophosphamide treatment of control mice resulted in alopecia while Egfr mutant skin was resistant to cyclophosphamide-induced alopecia. Egfr mutant skin entered catagen normally, as indicated by dermal papilla ...
This is an inherited pattern of hair loss and it is the most common cause of permanent hair loss in both women and men. Androgenetic alopecia in men is what is known as male pattern baldness -hair loss that starts at the front of the scalp and recedes backward over time, and hair in the center of the scalp thins and falls out.

Last year, by far the biggest news of the year involved two likely cures for alopecia areata (AA) in humans. One was the arthritis drug tocafitinib and the other was the cancer drug ruxolitinib. Both drugs are classified as Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors, and it is likely that many other drugs from this family will lead to similar results when it comes to hair regrowth. If you read my two main posts on this subject from last year (see here and here), it should be quite obvious how exciting the news was based on the large-scale global media coverage at the time (and of course the miraculous before and after human scalp photos instead of the usual mice photos).. Unfortunately, the vast majority of men (and many women too) who have hair loss suffer from androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness (MPB). There are probably 100 times as many people who suffer from MPB as there are who suffer from alopecia areata. So the big news of last year was only useful to 1 percent of hair loss ...

She was very young, definitely still in high school, and she had severe female pattern hair loss.

Although there are many treatments available in the market that claims to effectively treat male pattern baldness, in truth, all they do is slow down the progression of the hair fall issue.. Most treatments for hair loss come in topical like creams and ointments. These are then applied at scalp level in an attempt to treat the hair fall condition. However, as mentioned earlier, these treatments are only effective in slowing down the progress of baldness but do not really treat the main condition itself. The most effective treatment for hair loss comes in neither cream nor ointment, but instead comes as a pill. Finasteride 1mg for sale is the one and only ...
Androgenetic Alopecia). The most common type of hair loss seen in women is androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern alopecia or baldness. This is seen as hair thinning predominantly over the top and sides of the head. It affects approximately one-third of all susceptible women, but is most commonly seen after menopause, although it may begin as early as puberty. Normal hair fall is approximately 100-125 hairs per day. Fortunately, these hairs are replaced. True hair loss occurs when lost hairs are not regrown or when the daily hair shed exceeds 125 hairs. Genetically, hair loss can come from either parents side of the family.. There are two different types of hair loss, medically known as anagen effluvium and Telogen effluvium. Anagen effluvium is generally due to internally administered medications, such as chemotherapy agents, that poison the growing hair follicle. Telogen effluvium, is due to an increased number of hair follicles entering the resting stage.. The most common causes ...
Hair loss is a clinical problem thats increasingly observed these days in women. When the cause is high androgen level, its called female androgenetic alopecia. When it occurs with normal androgen level, its called female pattern hair loss [1].. There can be numerous causes of hair loss in women, and a dermatologist is the best specialist to identify the cause and treat it. Hair loss also occurs in children, wherein its more frequent in girls, and is seen in girls at an earlier age compared to boys. Menopausal women dont necessarily have hair loss, but when it occurs suddenly, it needs to be investigated. High hormone level during pregnancy protects from hair loss, but following delivery, almost all women experience hair loss as estrogen hormone levels decrease. Blood loss during delivery could trigger further hair loss from iron deficiency [2]. Even in women with heavy periods, and who dont eat red meats or have vegetarian diets, iron deficiency related hair loss can occur. This happens ...
The most common type of baldness is called male pattern baldness. It occurs to some degree in up to 2/3 of men and is related to ones genetic background. This generally begins with thinning at the temples and around the face, as well as the crown of the head. It generally progresses to include much of the head. This type of hair loss is related to an excess of dihydrotestosterone, which is made from testosterone through the use of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. Female pattern baldness is felt to be due to a general decline in estrogen with age and is seen as a diffuse hair thinning or as a widening of the part in the hair. Women with conditions such as hypothyroidism can have thinning hair. Fungal infections of the skin can result in damage to and loss of healthy hair follicles. Treating the fungal infection often improves the hair loss. Autoimmune conditions can lead to the immune system attacking parts or all of the hair. One condition is known as alopecia areata and is seen as circular ...
The most common form of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia. Known as pattern baldness,androgenetic alopecia is now understood to affect both men and women. In men and in some women,androgenetic alopecia is due to a hereditary predisposition to the effects ofdihydrotestosterone(DHT) on the hair follicles. Over time, this by-product of the natural break-down of testosterone in the body causes the growth cycle of the hair follicles to become shorter and shorter. The hair follicles sprout hairs that are thinner than normal. Over time, the hairs become thinner and thinner, and eventually the follicles wither away and stop producing hair altogether. The hair thins and sheds along a progressive and predictable pattern, which varies between men and women.. Alopecia areata causes complete hair loss in either smooth, circular patches or in a diffuse pattern on the scalp, eyebrows, beard, or other hair bearing areas on the body. In many cases, these patches are small or randomly distributed, but in some ...

Extractions: Researchers Identify Gene for Inherited Baldness A dermatology researcher has discovered the first human gene associated with hair loss. The new gene, called hairless, is linked to a severe form of inherited baldness and may be the trigger that turns on the entire human hair cycle. The discovery could lead to a better understanding of the hair cycle and, eventually, more effective treatments for various forms of hair loss. The research, reported in the Jan. 30, 1998, issue of Science, suggests the gene initiates a cascade of events that stimulate hair growth. Each step along this pathway may provide new clues for male pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss, or alopecia. "The discovery of this new gene gives us endless possibilities that may allow us to effectively treat hair loss and possibly baldness within the next five years," says the principal investigator, Dr. Angela M. Christiano, Herbert Irving Assistant Professor of Dermatology. "It is now within our reach to design ...
Why does baldness affect many men, particularly in later years? Natural hair loss can sometimes cause distress, but it can be partly treated.
Hair grows in three phases: anagen (growth), catagen (regression), and telogen (resting). In successive cycles, a follicle replaces its hair strand with another that is either the same size (maintenance), finer (balding) or thicker (regrowth).. For the hair on the scalp, the anagen phase lasts anywhere from two to five years. In androgenetic alopecia for both male and female pattern baldness, hormones cause the hair follicles to contract and produce vellus (light) hairs.. Khesin notes, "Despite decades of intense research and interest, our understanding of follicle function remains rudimentary. The oldest known ion-channel opener for hair growth, minoxidil, works only on part of the scalp and only for a subset of users. Plus, it carries side effects." His method of research is to gain a greater understanding of how ion-channel openers work, so that his company can create safer and more effective treatments for male and female baldness. "We test and explore some of the most innovative ...

Thicker Hair - Yes After 3 months :-. 11% increase in the number of hairs in anagen phase (growing phase). 14% decease in the number of hairs in telogen phase (falling phase) 45% variation of the portion between anagen hair (growing) and telogen hair (falling). 5 clinical trials. Once the causes of hair loss appear (androgenetic alopecia, stress etc.) , excessive apoptosis provokes more hair to enter prematurely into the catagen phase (transition phase) and fall. As a consequence the anagen phase of hair (growing phase) becomes shorter.. The successive repetition of the premature onset of the catagen phase, caused by massive apoptosis, followed by shorter and shorter anagen phase leads to hair miniaturization (white, invisible, thin hair), called also male pattern baldness. In addition to a massive apoptosis phenomenon, excessive hair loss is also associated with scalp micro-inflammation.. Clinical trials in androgenetic alopecia subjects using CG 210™ have demonstrated the following benefits. ...
A preliminary study of men with finasteride-related sexual side effects indicates that finasteride may decrease drinking.. Finasteride is a synthetic drug for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (MPHL) and an enlarged prostate. The side effects of finasteride for treatment of these two conditions can include increased rates of sexual dysfunction, such as low libido and erectile dysfunction; in fact, some men who have discontinued the medication continue to experience persistent sexual side effects. Building on the discovery that finasteride has also been shown to reduce alcohol intake and suppress alcohol preference in mice, a new study has found that a majority of men with finasteride-related sexual side effects noticed a decrease in their alcohol consumption.. Results will be published in the November 2013 issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research and are currently available at Early View..

Primary cicatricial alopecias (CA) are commonly classified according to the type of inflammatory infiltrate present. CAs can be predominately lymphocytic, such as with CCCA, neutrophilic, or mixed.[3] Folliculitis keloidalis shows mixed lymphocytic and neutrophilic infiltration with histological findings similar to CCCA.[3] Interestingly, folliculitis keloidalis and CCCA occur concurrently in some patients, but further study is needed to determine the significance of this relationship.1 Histologically, AGA demonstrates miniaturization of terminal hairs into vellus-like hairs and an absence of inflammation.[4]. The clinical presentation, histopathology, and treatment response appear to be similar between men and women with CCCA. Therefore, current practices to diagnose and treat female patients should also be used for male patients with CCCA.[1] Timely management of CCCA can halt or slow disease progression in most cases, but hair regrowth depends on the extent of damage and scarring in the ...

Turban Alopecia is a type of traction alopecia that is seen in people who wear tight turbans, such as Sikhs. Turban Alopecia can also occur as a result of knotting and braiding long hair which results in hair being pulled continuously for long periods of time. This can cause hair loss with the same mechanism as many other types of traction alopecia - chronic pull on hair follicles can destroy them permanently.. Prognosis of Turban Alopecia is similar to other types of traction alopecia. It might be reversible to some degree only in some patients. However, if re-growth is not seen after a year of stopping the use of the turban and tight hair braiding, it is unlikely that new growth will occur at all, leaving the affected areas of the scalp with permanent hair loss.. Turban Alopecia is generally seen in the frontal area of the scalp and in some cases in temple areas. Those are the areas that are directly affected by the traction effect of the turban and hair braiding. (This could be seen in most ...
Female pattern hair loss is the most common form of hair loss in women and presents as diffuse thinning or hair loss from the vertex of the scalp..

The underlying pathophysiology of Female pattern hair loss is miniaturisation of the hair follicles on the vertex of the scalp. Each time the hair goes through the hair cycle the hair shaft and follicle becomes smaller and smaller until some of the follicles are so small that they dont protrude from the scalp surface, therefore these hairs dont contribute to the general volume of the hair, Women with Female pattern hair loss present with diffuse thinning from the vertex of the scalp.

Alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune disorder, results in hair loss in round patches, or on the entire scalp, or even on the entire body. It affects 1%-2% of the population. If hair growth is desired, strong drugs such as steroidal injections and topical corticosteroids can help. However, these drugs can have unwanted side effects and can become less effective over time.. People with severe alopecia areata have had varying amounts of success with methylprednisolone pulse therapy.. One study1 researched the effectiveness of the therapy, and how long the effects last. Researchers injected an effective dose of methylprednisolone into patients with severe alopecia areata.. The patients were in one of two categories: some had alopecia totalis or universalis (hair loss on the scalp), and the rest had actively progressive multifocal alopecia (hair loss throughout the body).. The researchers found that Methylprednisolone pulse therapy was well-tolerated with no side effects. The therapy was effective ...

Background: Recent studies have shown that erythropoietin (EPO)/erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) signaling exist in both human and mouse hair follicles (HFs). Objective: To investigate whether dermal papilla cells (DPCs) express functional EPOR and, if so, to investigate effects of EPO on hair shaft growth in cultured human scalp hair follicles and hair growth in mice. Methods: EPOR expression in DPCs and follicular keratinocytes was examined by RT-PCR and immunoblot. Phosphorylation of EPOR signaling pathway mediators by EPO treatment was examined by immunoblot. MTT assay was employed to check cell viability after EPO treatment. Hair shaft growth was measured in the absence or presence of EPO and matrix keratinocyte proliferation was examined by Ki-67 immunostaining in cultured hair follicles. Agarose beads containing EPO were implanted into dorsal skin of C57BL/6 mice to examine effects of EPO on hair growth in vivo. Results: EPOR mRNA and protein are expressed in cultured human DPCs. EPOR ...
Abstract In this manuscript, a clinical case of a patient treated with adalimumab for Behcets disease develops lichen planopilaris. A variety of mucocutaneous lichenoid eruptions have recently been described in association with tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitors. The authors briefly discuss the clinical and pathological presentation of lichen planopilaris as well as a potential pathogenesis of cutaneous adverse effects seen as the result of tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitor therapy. They review all case reports of lichen planopilaris occurring on tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitors and suggest its classification as a fourth recognized pattern on this therapy. (J Clin Aesthet Dermatol. 2015;8(6):45-49.). The systemic adverse effects of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF) inhibitors are well known. Recently, attention has been directed to the potential and often paradoxical cutaneous adverse effects seen in association with TNF alpha inhibitors including lichen planus-like eruptions, ...
