AIMS To determine whether specific pulsed electrostatic fields, or electrotrichogenesis (ETG), could potentially prevent or reduce hair loss in patients undergoing adjuvant cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and 5-fluorouracil (CMF) chemotherapy for breast cancer. METHODS Thirteen women were followed during their adjuvant ETG and chemotherapy treatment to… CONTINUE READING
