Background: The pathogenesis of androgenic alopecia is not fully understood. [...] Key Method Results: Hair density and size and proportion of anagen follicles were improved almost similarly by both KCZ and minoxidil regimens. The sebum casual level appeared to be decreased by KCZ. Conclusion: Comparative data suggest that there may be a significant action of KCZ upon the course of androgenic alopecia and that Malassezia spp. may play a role in the inflammatory reaction. The clinical significance of the results…Expand
Reversal of androgenetic alopecia by topical ketoconzole: relevance of anti-androgenic activity.
TLDR
An open trial of topical 2% KCZ lotion (Nizoral) in combination with shampoos on six Japanese males with androgenetic alopecia to identify the mechanism, which can explain the clinical effect of KCZ on AGA. Expand
Topical ketoconazole for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia: A systematic review
TLDR
Topical ketoconazole is a promising adjunctive or alternative therapy in the treatment of AGA and demonstrated clinical improvement of AGA based on photographic assessment and subjective evaluation. Expand
Multi‐therapies in androgenetic alopecia: review and clinical experiences
TLDR
The treatment for AGA should be based on personalized therapy and targeted at the different pathophysiological aspects of AGA, since the benefit will not be maintained upon ceasing therapy. Expand
Androgenetic Alopecia: An Evidence-Based Treatment Update
TLDR
An assessment of the evidence quality of current publications indicates that oral finasteride and topical minoxidil are the best treatments of androgenetic alopecia. Expand
Trichogenic effect of topical ketoconazole versus minoxidil 2% in female pattern hair loss: a clinical and trichoscopic evaluation
TLDR
Topical ketoconazole mediates a trichogenic effect in FPHL with few side effects, however, ketconazole showed a delayed improvement versus minoxidil at similar concentrations. Expand
Comparative Efficacy of Various Treatment Regimens for Androgenetic Alopecia in Men
TLDR
It is inferred that the therapeutic efficacy is enhanced by combining the two drugs acting on different aetiological aspects of AGA by combining finasteride alone or in combination with minoxidil or ketoconazole. Expand
Treatments for Androgenetic Alopecia and Alopecia Areata
TLDR
New therapeutic strategies are directed towards both improving the targeting of existing agents, as well as the development of novel hypertrichotic modalities for androgenetic and alopecia areata. Expand

Dandruff is a common scalp disorder affecting almost half of the postpubertal population of any ethnicity and both genders. It may, however, represent a stubborn esthetical disturbance often sourceExpand
Treatments for androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata: current options and future prospects.
TLDR
New therapeutic strategies are directed towards both improving the targeting of existing agents, as well as the development of novel hypertrichotic modalities for androgenetic and alopecia areata. Expand
Ketocazole as an adjunct to finasteride in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in men
TLDR
Evidence is presented to support the hypothesis that ketoconazole 2% shampoo has a local disruption of the DHT pathway and could lead to a more complete inhibition of DHT and thus better treat AGA. Expand

Improvement in the inflammatory aspect of androgenetic alopecia. A pilot study with an antimicrobial lotion
TLDR
This study conducted in 20 men who used a lotion containing the antimicrobials, piroctone olamine and triclosan, regularly for 18 months suggested signs of hair regrowth with moderate increase in density of transitional hairs. Expand
The response of seborrhoeic dermatitis to ketoconazole
TLDR
It is concluded that Pityrosporum yeast infection is the immediate cause of seborrhoeic dermatitis and that dandruff is its mildest manifestation. Expand
Effect of ketoconazole 2% shampoo on scalp sebum level in patients with seborrhoeic dermatitis.
TLDR
The scalp lipid content remained unaltered in 11 patients with an initial lipid value over 220 micrograms/cm2 but increased in those with lower initial values, probably due to the improvement of sebum delivery onto skin surface as a result of the elimination of the follicular occlusion. Expand
The antiinflammatory effects of ketoconazole. A comparative study with hydrocortisone acetate in a model using living and killed Staphylococcus aureus on the skin of guinea-pigs.
TLDR
In the animal model involving killed bacteria, topical ketoconazole had antiinflammatory activity comparable to that of hydrocortisone acetate and this molecule might also have effects against gram-positive bacteria at the high concentrations obtained after local application. Expand

TLDR
Results of this study are consistent with the view that M. ovalis plays a central role in the pathogenesis of seborrheic dermatitis. Expand

TLDR
Type or categories of scalp hairiness which can be used as standards for classitication and grading of the extent of common baldness are established and the relationship of scdp types to factors which influence the development of baldness is studied. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
The data suggest that progressive fibrosis of the perifollicular sheath occurs in lesions of pattern alopecia, and may begin with T‐cell infiltration of follicular stem cell epithelium. Expand

TLDR
The sebum excretion rate was significantly increased in male pattern alopecia, significantly decreased in pityriasis amiantacea and showed a trend towards reduction in alopECia areata. Expand
