Potential ‘Cure’ For Baldness Found In Side Effect Of A Drug That Cures Bone Disease

Bald black man

Yeah… everybody going through this hates it… Especially when you’re in your 20s and all your friends are making fun of you… Some even want to touch your foreheads to know how it feels to touch.

If you’re 20 something and you’re losing your hair, it is undoubtedly one of the hardest life cycles one can go through.

But… soon…. Though most can’t afford to wait…but soon, we may have an approved cure…

A side-effect of an osteoporosis drug could open up new avenues to help promote hair growth.

A potential new cure for baldness has been identified through this drug that is originally designed to treat osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a condition of weakened bones and that have a risk of breaking.

Cyclosporine A, the drug, enhances hair growth as a side effect… how convenient that is…

Research has found that the drug inhibited, a vital protein that blocks molecular pathways for hair growth.

This result has prompted researchers to develop another drug called WAY-316606 in a test drug to stop a protein that blocks hair production. This could be a “promising new promoter of human hair growth”, according to PLOS Biology.

The study used the new drug on human hair follicles donated from 40 patients undergoing hair transplant surgery.

Only two drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration are currently used for hair loss disorders: minoxidil and finasteride.

Neither guarantees 100 percent success, according to the research.

However, WAY-316606 was used on the hair for six days with the research discovering it “significantly increased hair shaft production” as early as two days after treatment.

The study was released on Tuesday (yesterday) and suggests the compound was able to prolong anagen, which is the active growth phase of hair follicles.

One of the researchers on the project Nathan Hawkshaw said the next step for the drug would be for a clinical trial to find out whether WAY-316606 is safe.

Give it time people… give it time…
