Topics from this paper

Genetic linkage studies in alopecia areata.
The approach to the identification of susceptibility genes for alopecia areata is discussed, which aims to provide a foundation for understanding how they interact with each other and with other variables, such as the immune system and environmental factors. Expand
Pathogenesis of Alopecia Areata Based on Bioinformatics Analysis
The abnormal development of the epidermis and inflammatory reactions in skin tissue play important roles in the pathogenesis of AA and are closely related to BMP2, KRTs, and KRTAPs genes. Expand
Pattern and profile of alopecia areata in Pakistan
Alopecia areata in Pakistani population may have a lower frequency of autoimmune associations and larger studies are recommended to further validate the results. Expand
Hair Changes Caused by Aging
Hair follicle aging and the aging of the skin are physiological phenomena that commence between a person’s 30s and 40s. The main changes manifest in the increased graying of hair and androgenicExpand
The Future of Hair Transplantation
  • W. Rassman
  • Medicine
  • International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery
  • 2015
The new developments that will shape hair restoration surgery as the authors enter the next millennium are reviewed, including the follicular unit/mini-micrograft controversy. Expand
The autoimmune basis of alopecia areata: a comprehensive review.
Recent studies suggest that intervention of the JAK pathway may have a potential therapeutic efficacy for AA, and multiple treatment options including the use of broad acting corticosteroids appear to be relatively effective in mild cases. Expand
Does prostaglandin D2 hold the cure to male pattern baldness?
The current knowledge surrounding PGD2, and future steps needed to translate these findings into novel therapies for patients with androgenetic alopecia are discussed. Expand
Basic Principles of Genetics and Gene Therapy
Mendelian diseases vs. complex traits, Chromosomal disorders and polygenetic diseases, and exceptions to the basic Mendelian patterns of inheritance. Expand
Androgens and hair loss
The pathogenesis and treatment of AGA is discussed and a new topical liposomal finasteride formulation showed more than five-fold higher deposition of drug in skin than the corresponding plain drug solution. Expand
Effect of thioredoxin reductase 1 on glucocorticoid receptor activity in human outer root sheath cells.
Results suggest that decreased TrxR1 may be one putative cause for glucocorticoid resistance in AA, through the impact on intracellular redox system. Expand
