    TLDR Hair loss in men treated best with early medication or transplant, new treatments researched.
    This document discusses male androgenetic alopecia (MAA), a genetic condition that causes hair loss in men. It affects up to 80% of males by the age of 80 and causes reduced self-esteem, loss of confidence, and anxiety in affected men. Hair transplant remains the only viable treatment for advanced hair loss, but newer agents such as prostaglandin analogues, gene therapy, and angiogenic growth factors are targets for future research. Effective and safe medications are available for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, including topical minoxidil and finasteride tablets, which are FDA approved for the treatment of hair loss. Early treatment achieves the best results.
