    TLDR Minoxidil and finasteride treat hair loss; more research needed for other options.
    This 22-year-old document discusses the causes and treatments for androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata. Topical minoxidil and oral finasteride are established treatments for androgenetic alopecia, while symptomatic treatment is possible for alopecia areata. The article also mentions the development of novel research tools for hair regrowth research and potential future treatment options. Various treatments for both types of alopecia are discussed, including experimental models, gene therapy, and vesicular systems to enhance drug delivery. Further clinical work is required for many of these treatments.
