Short communication: Clinical evaluation of pea sprout extract in the treatment of hair loss
- MedicinePhytotherapy research : PTR
It is shown that the application of a fluid containing 2% pea sprout extract on a defined scalp zone of 10 volunteers enhances the expression of defined genes relevant for hair, namely fibroblast growth factor‐7 (FGF7) and noggin, by 56 and 85%, respectively.

Cyclic dermal BMP signalling regulates stem cell activation during hair regeneration
Results show that BMPs may be the long-sought ‘chalone’ inhibitors of hair growth postulated by classical experiments, and provide an example of hierarchical regulation of local organ stem cell homeostasis by the inter-organ macroenvironment.
