    TLDR Fluridil safely promotes hair growth in men with androgenetic alopecia.
    The study evaluated the safety and efficacy of topical fluridil in treating androgenetic alopecia (AGA) in men. The study found that fluridil is safe, non-irritating, and effective in promoting hair growth by increasing the anagen:telogen ratio. The increased ratio was achieved within the first 3 months and remained for 9 months, making fluridil a promising agent for the management of incipient or recent male AGA. However, further studies are needed to assess fluridil's safety and effectiveness in female AGA and hirsutism.
