    TLDR There are potential treatments for pattern baldness, but more research is needed to confirm their effectiveness.
    Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as male or female pattern baldness, affects a significant percentage of the population. The current standard treatments for AGA are minoxidil and finasteride, with hair transplantation as a surgical option. Other therapies under investigation include dutasteride, ketoconazole, prostaglandin analogues, and laser treatment. However, there is limited clinical trial data proving the efficacy of these treatments in promoting hair growth. Future treatment approaches may involve cell-mediated therapies. Overall, while there are potential treatment options for AGA, more research is needed to establish their effectiveness.
