More Hair Loss Genetic Research

17 Aug 2009, by Paul in HAIR LOSS SCIENCE

It’s all in the genes! New research coming from Japan has positively identified a particular gene which is responsible for cyclical hair loss in lab mice and which could also be linked to genetic baldness patterns in men and women.


The researchers showed that the mice who were specifically bred to lack a gene called the Sox21 gene started to lose their hair very early on in their lives. By the time they were 20 to 25 days old these particular mice had lost all of their body hair, however a few days later their hair started to reappear again followed by new hair loss. The scientists said that the cyclical nature of their hair loss continued throughout their lives.

Professor Yumiko Saga from the Division of Mammalian Development at the National Institute of Genetics based in Mishima said that the Sox21 gene was definitely linked to some hair loss problems that humans experienced and that more research in this area needed to be done.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.
