Contribution of interleukin 1beta and KM loci to alopecia areata. (1/140)

Alopecia areata is a common skin disease in which proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1beta may play a pathogenic role. In this study, we examined the distribution of genotypes of an IL-1beta single base change polymorphism at position +3953 in patients with alopecia areata. The distribution of immunoglobulin kappa light chain (KM) genotypes was similarly examined. The data obtained showed that the IL-1beta and KM loci act cooperatively to significantly increase susceptibility to alopecia areata.  (+info)

Successful treatment of alopecia areata-like hair loss with the contact sensitizer squaric acid dibutylester (SADBE) in C3H/HeJ mice. (2/140)

A type of hair loss closely resembling human alopecia areata has been described in C3H/HeJ mice. In order to test the assumed analogy with human alopecia areata, we investigated the efficacy of treatment with the contact allergen squaric acid dibutylester. In 12 C3H/HeJ mice with alopecia areata an allergic contact dermatitis was induced and elicited weekly on one side of the back by topical applications of squaric acid dibutylester. Overt hair regrowth was observed only on the treated side of the back in nine of 12 mice. Histopathologic examination revealed a change in the distribution of the inflammatory infiltrate from a dense perifollicular lymphocytic infiltrate around the mid and lower regions of hair follicles in untreated skin to a uniform presence in the upper dermis in treated skin. Immunohistomorphometric studies revealed that treatment with squaric acid dibutylester increased the CD4+/CD8+ ratio from approximately 1:2 in untreated alopecia areata to 1:1 in treated alopecia areata. Additional immunohistochemical investigations showed an aberrant expression of major histocompatibility complex class I, major histocompatibility complex class II and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 on keratinocytes of the mid and lower parts of hair follicles in untreated alopecia areata. In successfully treated skin ectopic major histocompatibility complex class I and II expression was clearly reduced, whereas intercellular adhesion molecule 1 expression showed only minor changes. In conclusion, alopecia areata-like hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice responded to treatment with the contact sensitizer squaric acid dibutylester analogous to human alopecia areata. Moreover, successful treatment changes the aberrant expression of major histocompatibility complex class I and II in a way similar to that observed in human alopecia areata. These observations support the concept that alopecia areata-like hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice can be utilized as an appropriate model for the study of human alopecia areata.  (+info)

Role of cytotoxic T cells in chronic alopecia areata. (3/140)

Cytokines play a role in alopecia areata. We used immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization studies to demonstrate the persistence of pro-inflammatory as well as apoptotic mechanisms in skin biopsies from patients with chronic alopecia areata. In situ hybridization allows the visualization of the distribution of immunocompetent cells in vivo. We studied skin biopsies from 11 untreated alopecia areata patients and two normal controls. In situ hybridization was performed on frozen sections using 35S-radio-labeled riboprobes, specific for IL-1beta, IL-2, IL-6, INFgamma, and granzyme B mRNA. Immunohistochemistry was carried out using an anti-IL-1beta monoclonal antibody, and a monoclonal antibody directed against the human Fas protein. We demonstrated the presence of cells labeled with IL-1beta, IL-6, INFgamma, and granzyme B antisense probes. Similarly, cells labeled with anti-IL-1beta were found in 10 of 11 cases. The labeled cells were located in the mononuclear peri- and intrafollicular infiltrate. Cells expressing granzyme B were found in close contact with the follicle. Fas positivity was demonstrated in four of four cases at the level of the cytoplasmic membrane of the hair follicle keratinocytes. These results, based on visualizing the labeled cells, demonstrate that pro-inflammatory cytokines are produced by the mononuclear cell infiltrate in close contact with follicles in alopecia areata. Furthermore, they demonstrate for the first time that apoptotic mechanisms involving granzyme B and Fas-Fas ligand pathways may play a major role in the persistence of chronic alopecia areata.  (+info)

Practical management of hair loss. (5/140)

OBJECTIVE: To describe an organized diagnostic approach for both nonscarring and scarring alopecias to help family physicians establish an accurate in-office diagnosis. To explain when ancillary laboratory workup is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Current diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for hair loss are based on randomized controlled studies, uncontrolled studies, and case series. MEDLINE was searched from January 1966 to December 1998 with the MeSH words alopecia, hair, and alopecia areata. Articles were selected on the basis of experimental design, with priority given to the most current large multicentre controlled studies. Overall global evidence for therapeutic intervention for hair loss is quite strong. MAIN MESSAGE: The most common forms of nonscarring alopecias are androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium, and alopecia areata. Other disorders include trichotillomania, traction alopecia, tinea capitis, and hair shaft abnormalities. Scarring alopecia is caused by trauma, infections, discoid lupus erythematosus, or lichen planus. Key to establishing an accurate diagnosis is a detailed history, including medication use, systemic illnesses, endocrine dysfunction, hair-care practices, and family history. All hair-bearing sites should be examined. A 4-mm punch biopsy of the scalp is useful, particularly to diagnose scarring alopecias. Once a diagnosis has been established, specific therapy can be initiated. CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis and management of hair loss is an interesting challenge for family physicians. An organized approach to recognizing characteristic differential features of hair loss disorders is key to diagnosis and management.  (+info)

Treatment with an anti-CD44v10-specific antibody inhibits the onset of alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice. (6/140)

A murine CD44v10-neutralizing antibody has been reported to impair delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions. Because alopecia areata is characterized by a delayed-type hypersensitivity-like T cell mediated immune response, we addressed the question whether an anti-CD44v10-antibody influences the onset of alopecia areata. Therefore, we used the C3H/HeJ mouse model with the induction of alopecia areata in unaffected mice by the grafting of lesional alopecia areata mouse skin. Six grafted mice were injected (intraperitoneally) with anti-CD44v10, six grafted mice with anti-CD44standard, and six with phosphate-buffered saline only. After 11 wk phosphate-buffered saline injected animals on average had developed alopecia areata on 36.8% of their body. The onset of hair loss was slightly delayed and its extent reduced to 17.2% of their body in anti-CD44standard-treated mice. By contrast, five of six anti-CD44v10-treated mice did not show any hair loss and one mouse developed alopecia areata on only 1% of the body. Immunohistochemical examination revealed a marked reduction of perifollicular CD8+ lymphocytes and, to a lesser degree, CD4+ cells as well as a decreased expression of major histocompatibility complex class I on hair follicle epithelium in anti-CD44v10-treated mice as compared with phosphate-buffered saline or anti-CD44 standard-treated mice. Our data show that anti-CD44v10 is able to inhibit the onset of alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice. This might be accomplished by an anti-CD44v10-triggered impairment of immune cell homing (e.g., CD8+ T cells), resulting in a decrease of their number in target tissues.  (+info)

Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist allele 2 and familial alopecia areata. (7/140)

Alopecia areata affects 1%-2% of the population and is hypothesized to be an autoimmune, organ specific T-cell mediated reaction directed against the human hair follicle. It is characterized by loss of hair in patches (alopecia areata) with progression in some individuals to total loss of scalp hair (alopecia totalis) or to loss of all scalp and body hair (alopecia universalis). The interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RN) gene was found to be associated with more severe clinical outcome in several chronic inflammatory diseases, including alopecia areata. The IL-1RN*2 allele was found to be associated with alopecia areata severity in a British case-control study. In this paper, we analyzed alopecia areata probands in a family-based sample (n = 131 parent-offspring trios) to study the association between alleles of the IL-1RN and various phenotypes of alopecia areata. In considering all patients with any form of alopecia areata, no association was found with IL-1RN. IL-1RN*2 allele was not associated with alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis. A borderline association was observed between IL-1RN and patchy alopecia areata but it was not statistically significant (p =0.06). We also observed an association between IL1-RN*1 allele and patchy alopecia areata (p =0.045).  (+info)

Melanocyte-associated T cell epitopes can function as autoantigens for transfer of alopecia areata to human scalp explants on Prkdc(scid) mice. (8/140)

Alopecia areata is a tissue restricted autoimmune condition affecting the hair follicle, resulting in hair loss. The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that the autoantigen of alopecia areata is melanocyte associated. Potential autoantigens were tested in the human scalp explant/Prkd(scid) CB-17 mouse transfer system. Scalp T cells from lesional (bald) alopecia areata scalp were cultured with antigen-presenting cells, and antigen, along with interleukin-2. The T cells were then injected into autologous lesional scalp grafts on SCID mice, and hair regrowth was measured. Hair follicle homogenate was used as an autoantigen control. T cells cultured with melanoma homogenate induced statistically significant reduction in hair growth (p <0.01 by ANOVA). HLA-A2-restricted melanocyte peptide epitopes were then tested with lesional scalp T cells from HLA-A2-positive alopecia areata patients. Melanocyte-peptide-activated T cells significantly reduced the number of hairs regrowing in two experiments with six patients (p <0.001 by ANOVA). Injected scalp grafts showed histologic and immunochemical changes of alopecia areata. The most consistent peptide autoantigens were the Gp100-derived G9-209 and G9-280 peptides, as well as MART-1 (27-35). Melanocyte peptide epitopes can function as autoantigens for alopecia areata. Multiple peptides were recognized, suggesting epitope spreading.  (+info)

Alopecia areata is a condition in which hair is lost either from part of the scalp, all of the scalp, or the entire body, and it affects 1% to 2% of the population. It is thought to be an autoimmune disease and in some cases the disease is hereditary. The Alopecia Areata Registry will collect information and blood samples from clinically well-characterized patients with these three forms of alopecia areata: alopecia partialis (patchy loss of the scalp hair), alopecia totalis (total loss of all scalp hair), and alopecia universalis (complete loss of all hair everywhere on the body). This will be a collection of patients in multi-generational families, twins, single patients with patchy, persistent transient alopecia areata or long-standing alopecia totalis/universalis and with controls (persons unaffected and not related to alopecia patients). Information from these patients will be used to search the human genome for disease-associated loci and/or genes. Researchers interested in doing ...

NEW YORK - A team of investigators led by Columbia University Medical Center has uncovered eight genes that underpin alopecia areata, one of the most common causes of hair loss, as reported in a paper in the July 1, 2010 issue of Nature. Since many of the genes are also implicated in other autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes - and treatments have already been developed that target these genes - this discovery may soon lead to new treatments for the 5.3 million Americans suffering from hair loss caused by alopecia areata.. According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, alopecia areata is a common autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere. It affects approximately two percent of the population overall. While it affects both men and women equally, it is diagnosed more often in women, since they are more likely to seek treatment.. Among the eight genes, one stands out for its potential role in the onset of alopecia ...
A:. This is a great question.. Base on the information in your query it appears that this child has Alopecia Areata (AA) or its more severe form "Alopecia Capitis". Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease that might progress to involve large areas of the scalp in some cases. This disorder can improve spontaneously and without any treatment. When this does not occur a physician must monitor it and consider various approaches. There is no perfect treatment that can guarantee full recovery in resistant cases of AA.. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has been in the news in recent years. PRP has been suggested for treatment of several types of hair loss conditions. However at this time, there is not sufficient level of solid evidence to prove its effectiveness for hair loss conditions.. Since Alopecia Areata may resolve spontaneously with no treatment in most cases, The few reports of the recovery of alopecia areata after PRP treatment may simply be reflecting the spontaneous regression of the disease. ...
Alopecia treatment centre is capable of managing a large number of patients with alopecia areata, which can be a challenging task as various hazard elements have been ensnared in its etiology. No definitive cure has been set up until some time back and alopecia areata treatment in India has concentrated fundamentally on containing malady action. Treatment course can go from 1 to 6 months, however prolonged courses ought to be dodged auxiliary to the various reactions of these medications particularly when kids are dealt with. Systemic steroids are consequently not favored in the treatment of alopecia areata with the exception of a few cases of a short course as it were. Yet, it is exceedingly prescribed that contraindications and symptoms ought to, be that as it may be talked about finally with patients considered for the treatment. ...
Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease, in which the immune system, which is designed to protect the body from alien attackers such as viruses and bacteria, erroneously attacks the hair follicles, the small cup-shaped structures from which hairs develop. In many cases, the illness does not enlarge beyond some bare patches. In some people, hair loss is other extensive. Although unusual, the disease can growth to cause total loss of hair on the head (medically known to as Alopecia areata totalis) other entire loss of hair on the head, face, and body . It is believed that the persons genetic makeup my start the autoimmune response of alopecia areata, together with a virus other a substance the person arrives into contact with.

One can classify alopecia areata based on extent of disease or pattern of hair loss. Alopecia areata usually refers to varying amounts of patchy hair loss to larger areas of little or no hair: this kind of hair loss generally takes place on the scalp, but any hair-bearing surface can be affected. In alopecia totalis, all the scalp hair on the scalp is lost, and the surface of the scalp becomes totally smooth. Alopecia universalis means loss of all hair on the head and body, including eyelashes, eyebrows, underarm hair, and pubic hair. Practical problems of alopecia universalis are 1 ) without eyebrows, perspiration trickles into the eyes 2) without eyelashes, there is little protection from dust and glare 3) without nasal hairs, there is no protection in the nostrils or sinuses from foreign particles in the air. Alopecia areata can also be classified by the pattern of hair loss. Circumscript type means localized patch of hair loss. Reticulated type means that is there is a net-like pattern of ...
Published May 11 2015. Many people with Graves Disease and Hashimotos Thyroiditis experience hair loss. In most cases the imbalance of thyroid hormone is responsible for the hair loss. However, other causes of hair loss include sex hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and certain medications. However, another possibility is a condition called alopecia areata, which is commonly found in people with autoimmune thyroid conditions.. So what is alopecia areata? This is an autoimmune condition which involves damage of the hair follicles. This condition usually begins with one or two patches of hair loss on the scalp, although hair loss can also occur in the beard, eyebrows, arms, and legs (1). Some people will experience hair loss of the entire scalp, which is known as alopecia totalis (2). If it involves the whole body then this is known as alopecia universalis (2). For many people the hair will eventually grow back, although this isnt the case with everyone.. What Causes Alopecia Areata? ...

Alopecia areata is one of the most common cause of non-scarring alopecia. The pathogenesis is still unclear, however, it is believed to be an autoimmune disease. This disease is not a life-threatening condition but it has a significant psychological impact to patients quality of life.. Many triggers have been proposed such as viral infection, stress and neurologic factors. There are many studies show the correlation between disease activities and neurotransmitters level. Substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide play major role in early stage of disease. These substances cause imbalance of CD4/CD8 lymphocyte in pathologic site and loss of immune privilege of hair follicles.. The conventional treatment of alopecia areata with intralesional corticosteroid injection might treat the end of pathogenesis process.. There is no therapeutic intervention for the origin of disease. Fortunately, botulinum toxin A could be a novel treatment of alopecia areata. The botulinum toxin A demonstrates ...
Ive shared my thoughts as well as previous data on these new so called JAK inhibitors (Ruxolitinib and Tofacitinib) in the treatment of alopecia areata. I was interested to read this morning a study showing benefit of ruxolitinib at a dose of 20 mg twice daily in a 35 year old man with two autoimmune diseases - vitiligo and alopecia areata.

This is really our first complete human study and the results really have been quite astounding compared to the previously available treatments Alopecia areata is an autoimmune form of hair loss where the body attacks the hair follicles and it begins to fall out We enrolled patients with at least thirty percent hair loss and we felt this was a good threshold because we wanted to capture those patients who really were very significantly affected by their hair loss And we found that 9 out of 12 patients had at least 50% regrowth So the genetic studies that weve been working on in the lab for the past five or so years were really critical in pointing for the first time at a potential pathway to target for alopecia areata So, unexpectedly, the JAK signaling pathway really emerged as a targetable pathway for this disease directly from our genetic studies In alopecia areata the hair follicle is quietened by the inflammatory response right around the hair follicle and so the JAK inhibitors block the ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Vitiligo and alopecia areata are common, disfiguring skin diseases. Treatment options are limited and include nontargeted approaches, such as corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, narrow band ultraviolet B phototherapy, and other immune-modifying agents. The purpose of this article is to review shared, novel mechanisms between vitiligo and alopecia areata, as well as discuss how they inform the development of future targeted treatments. RECENT FINDINGS: Vitiligo and alopecia areata are both autoimmune diseases, and striking similarities in pathogenesis have been identified at the level of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Increased reactive oxygen species and high cellular stress level have been suggested as the initiating trigger of the innate immune system in both diseases, and genome-wide association studies have implicated risk alleles that influence both innate and adaptive immunity. Most importantly, mechanistic studies in mouse models of vitiligo and
Alopecia Areata is caused when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. The condition is not typically permanent and the reasons for this arent actually clear.

Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune non-scarring hair loss disorder. AA can be acute, recurrent, or chronic. Current therapeutic options for AA are limited, and there is no effective prevention for recurrent AA. We have previously shown a correlation between the expression of HSP70 (HSPA1A/B), a heat shock protein involved in the inflammatory response, and the onset of AA in the C3H/HeJ mouse model. In this study, we tested the effects of quercetin, a bioflavonoid with anti-inflammatory properties, on AA development and HSP70 expression in the C3H/HeJ model. Mice with spontaneous AA were treated with subcutaneous quercetin or sham injections. Hair regrowth was observed in lesional areas in all the quercetin-treated mice, but in none of the sham-treated mice. In addition, non-alopecic C3H/HeJ mice were heat-treated to induce alopecia, along with quercetin or sham injections. Whereas 24% of the heat-treated mice with sham injections developed alopecia, none of the mice receiving quercetin injections did

In 1995, the Mayo Clinic released a study on the incidence rate of alopecia areata in Olmsted County, Minnesota consisting of 292 participants who were newly diagnosed with alopecia areata from 1975 to 1989. This study set the only known lifetime risk for alopecia areata at 1.7%. (Lifetime risk means the risk of developing a disease during ones lifetime.) A newer study, with 530 qualifying participants, was recently released accessing the same data parameters but from 1990 to 2009 to document the most current lifetime incidence risk. They found that the risk of a person developing alopecia areata during their lifetime has increased to 2.1%.. Nearly 6.7m people in the U.S. (over 149m worldwide) will develop alopecia areata in their lifetime.. At 2.1%, the cumulative lifetime incidence of AA from this recent 20-year period was slightly higher than 1.7% observed in the older study. Similarly, REP data analyzed in studies of other autoimmune-associated diseases have shown that incidence of ...

Alopecia Areata (AA) is an autoimmune hair loss condition. It presents itself in the form of patchy hair loss on the scalp or other areas where hair exists. Some have questioned if AA can also be triggered by emotional stress. It has been discussed in some medical journals but the exact mechanism has never been explored. There has been a study conducted and published on the relationship between stress and the pathogenesis of alopecia areata. This was done by subjecting AA-affected and normal lab mice to ether anesthesia (stress) through restraining the animal.. The mice with alopecia areata had a marked increase in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal tone and activity centrally and peripherally in the skin and lymph nodes. Plasma corticosterone, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and estradiol levels were determined in this study as indicator or stress level, whereas gene expression in brains, lymphoid organs, and skin was measured by quantitative RT-PCR for corticotropin-releasing hormone, arginine ...

Although alopecia areata (AA) is one of the most frequent organ-specific autoimmune diseases, the association of AA with other autoimmune diseases and the genetic basis of the association remain to be analyzed. Among the autoimmune diseases associated with AA, autoimmune thyroid disease was most frequent (10.0%), followed by vitiligo (2.7%) and rheumatoid arthritis (0.9%) but not type 1 diabetes (0.0%). The prevalence of thyroid-related autoantibodies in patients with AA was significantly higher than that in controls (TSH receptor antibody [TRAb]: 42.7% vs 1.2%, P = 1.6 × 10(-46); thyroid peroxidase antibody: 29.1% vs 11.6%; P = 1.7 × 10(-6)), whereas the prevalence of islet-related autontibodies was comparable between patients with AA and control subjects. The frequency of DRB1*15:01-DQB1*06:02, a protective haplotype for type 1 diabetes, was significantly higher in TRAb-positive (12.8%, P = .0028, corrected P value [Pc] = .02) but not TRAb-negative (7.1%, not significant) patients with AA ...

Hey everybody! Im Casandra, or Cassie:) and Im a less than a month from being 16. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata when I was 11 and was just starting 6th grade. I had a lot of problems with bullying and didnt handle the stress very well. I dropped out of school and homeschooled until 7th grade. In 7th grade, I still wore a head covering because I felt ashamed and like an outsider. When my hair finally started to come back fuller, at about 2 inches long, I started to wear it like a typical 12 year old would. Later on during my sophomore year of high school, I was devastated to discover I was losing my eye lashes. That then progressed to spots in my eye brows and of course, all over my scalp. I was terrified to be bold and bald again because of the horrific bullying I had to deal with in the past. I struggled over the summer, to go swimming or wearing my hair down, it was hard. It wasnt just a matter of if my spots show but when my spots show. I was very self conscious about it. It made ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
For many years, the biblical term tzaraat has referred to leprosy. In fact, the disease or diseases described under this name have no relationship to leprosy, as it was known in the Middle Ages or today; moreover, the term referred not only to skin disease, but also to the state of the ritual impurity and punishment for the sins. Although the real nature of tzaraat remains unknown, the differential diagnosis might include the following: Psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, favus, dermatophyte infections, nummular dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, pityriasis rosea, crusted scabies, syphilis, impetigo, sycosis barbae, alopecia areata, furuncles, scabies, neurodermatitis, scarlet fever, lupus erythematosus, lichen sclerosus et atrophicus, folliculitis decalvans, morphea, sarcoidosis, and lichen planopilaris.

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 term female pattern hair loss is sometimes used interchangeably with androgenetic alopecia where its also sometimes used as more of an umbrella term to encompass both androgenetic alopecia but other forms of hair loss which may cause diffuse thinning on the vertex of the scalp which may have an underlying cause such as polycystic ovary syndrome.. 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. This may be a ...
Helicobacter pylori is a gram-negative, flagellate, microaerophilic bacterium identified for the first time about 30 years ago, as a pathogenic factor of gastritis and peptic ulcer. Soon after, it was linked to several gastrointestinal and extra-gastrointestinal diseases (hematological, cardiovascular, neurological, pulmonary and ocular diseases, obesity, diabetes mellitus, growth retardation and extragastric MALT lymphoma). Association and possible cause-effect correlation with H. pylori infection were suggested in diseases of dermatological interest such as chronic urticaria, rosacea, Henoch-Schoenleins purpura, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, cutaneous and oral lichen planus, atopic dermatitis, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, systemic sclerosis, psoriasis, Sjögrens syndrome, Behçets disease, pruritus, alopecia areata, primary cutaneous marginal zone B-cell lymphomas, vitiligo, chronic prurigo, multiformis, prurigo nodularis, leukocytoclastic vasculitis, prurigo pigmentosa, eczema ...
After making a diagnosis, your dermatologist will work with you to find the best treatment. For example, patients with mild symptoms due to female pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) are usually first treated with minoxidil 5%. An important point you must remember is that your hairs are growing at various phases in an asynchronous pattern. Therefore, be diligent to apply minoxidil consistently over at least four to six months, sometimes at least one year, before expecting any improvement. Show your dermatologist how you apply the minoxidil to ensure a correct application technique. Amy J. McMichael, MD, chair and professor of Department of Dermatology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, teaches her patients a "5 lines, 90 seconds" rule, where patients apply the foam in five streaks on the scalp, the process lasting no longer than 90 seconds. Recent reports have also shown that low-level laser light therapies, or photomodulations, have improved hair loss[iii],[iv]. In female patients ...
