Hair loss, hair thinning, poorly growing hair and powerless or dull hair are" common complaints in clinical dermatology. There is a need for products, which support the hair growing process and control some of the disturbances in the hair cycle dynamics. In context of a randomised, placebo-controlled clinical trial efficacy of a fenugreek seeds containing food supplement against hair loss is evaluated. The results indicate a successful treatment of low to moderate hair loss in women and men… Expand
Fenugreek and Management of Androgenetic Alopecia: Fact or Fiction
Fenugreek seeds are a natural plant product that some claim are effective in managing hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia (AGA). This review finds that while a few small studies show itsExpand
Clinically-relevant chemotherapy interactions with complementary and alternative medicines in patients with cancer
TLDR
Clinicians should be vigilant when treating cancer patients who take CAMs with concurrent chemotherapy since they face a high risk of HDIs, which can be minimized or avoided by selecting herb-drug pairs which are less likely to interact. Expand

Neurobiological Mechanisms of the Placebo Effect
TLDR
It is necessary to eliminate the specific action of a therapy and to simulate a context that is similar in all respects to that of a real treatment to study this psychosocial context. Expand
EEMCO Guidance for the Assessment of Hair Shedding and Alopecia
TLDR
Clinical evaluations benefit from a few additional specific techniques that enhance the perception of hair (re-) growth, shedding and alopecia, especially when the hair loss is accompanied by scarring. Expand

TLDR
The diagnosis of androgenetic alopecia in women is supported by early age of onset, the pattern of increased thinning over the frontal/parietal scalp with greater density over the occipital scalp, retention of the frontal hairline, and the presence of miniaturized hairs. Expand
Immunomodulatory effects of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum L.) extract in mice.
TLDR
T. foenum graecum showed a stimulatory effect on immune functions in mice, which strengthens the rationale of its use in several Ayurvedic and Unani drugs. Expand
Methods of evaluating hair growth
TLDR
The most valuable means of measurement at the present time are global photography and phototrichogram‐based techniques (with digital image analysis) such as the ‘TrichoScan’ and these are under‐utilized and merit further refinement. Expand

Assessment of hair loss: clinical relevance of hair growth evaluation methods
TLDR
It is concluded that a combination of a highly resolutive analytical approach with a global calibrated method seems advisable in the context of the monitoring of hair growth changes for better or worse, i.e. scalp hair growth or hair loss in the hair clinic. Expand

TLDR
Current available treatment modalities with proven efficacy are oral finasteride, a competitive inhibitor of type 2 5 alpha-reductase, and topical minoxidil, an adenosine-triphosphate-sensitive potassium channel opener which has been reported to stimulate the production of vascular endothelial growth factor in cultured dermal papilla cells.

TLDR
The TrichoScan is a method which combines epiluminescence microscopy (ELM) with automatic digital image analysis for the measurement of human, and potentially animal hair, in situ and can be adopted to study the effect of drugs or laser treatment on hypertrichosis or hirsutism. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects of Trigonella foenum-graecum leaves extract in the rat.
TLDR
The results indicate that the TFG leaves extract possess anti-inflammatory as well as antipyretic properties in both i.p. and p.o. administration, and the possibility of alkaloids as effective compounds, in this extract, increases. Expand
