    TLDR Hair loss needs more research for better treatments.
    This document from 20 years ago discusses androgenetic alopecia, a common form of hair loss that affects both men and women. The document explores the role of androgens and the androgen receptor in the condition, as well as potential therapies such as minoxidil and finasteride. The authors suggest that further research is needed to fully understand the pathogenesis of androgenetic alopecia and to develop more effective therapies. The document also discusses the potential genetic causes of androgenetic alopecia and the use of gene therapy as a treatment option.
