Human hair follicle mesenchyme contains a distinctive extracellular matrix which varies in volume and composition in concert with the hair growth cycle. To investigate the possibility that mesenchymal function is disturbed in alopecia areata we have studied the expression of extracellular matrix constituents in scalp biopsies from 14 patients by… (More)
