    TLDR Oxidative stress affects hair loss in men with androgenetic alopecia.
    This study investigated the effects of oxidative stress on dermal papilla cells (DPC) in men with androgenetic alopecia (AGA). The researchers found that balding DPC were more sensitive to oxidative stress than non-balding DPC, and that oxidative stress may play a role in the pathogenesis of AGA. The study also found that low oxygen conditions (2% O2) led to decreased DPC viability, proliferation, and increased senescence-associated beta-galactosidase activity. The study suggests that oxidative stress-associated senescence in DPC may contribute to the pathogenesis of AGA.
