Follistatin helps hair growth and cycling, while activin prevents it.
Certain genes controlled by OVOL1 are crucial for creating new hair follicles.
Follistatin is important for hair growth and could help treat hair loss.
Activins and follistatins, part of the TGFβ family, are crucial for hair follicle development and skin health, affecting growth, repair, and the hair cycle.
Activin A and Follistatin affect how mouse hair follicles grow.
The treatment improved hair growth in people with male pattern baldness.
Aging mice have slower hair regeneration due to changes in signal balance, but the environment, not stem cell loss, controls this, suggesting treatments could focus on environmental factors.
New treatment with Wnt proteins and growth factors safely increases hair thickness.
Old people have less hair because their hair follicles don't regenerate as well, not because of fewer stem cells, and a protein called follistatin might help reactivate hair growth.
Cyclosporine A was found to increase hair growth in mouse whisker follicles.
Older mice have stiffer skin with less elasticity due to changes in collagen and skin structure, affecting aging and hair loss.
A trial showed that a new treatment is safe and effective for male pattern baldness, with most participants growing new hair.
Hair follicle stem cells have significant potential for treating various disorders.
PCOS is a complex condition with major health impacts, needing more research for better diagnosis and treatment.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition in women that can cause metabolic, reproductive, and psychological issues, and requires lifestyle changes and medication for management.
Hair follicles are complex, dynamic mini-organs that help us understand cell growth, death, migration, and differentiation, as well as tissue regeneration and tumor biology.
