  GENE THERAPY  
 

Gene therapy represents the ultimate cure for Androgenic Alopecia or genetically predisposed hair loss. Since our genes determine whether or not we will go bald, being able to modify the genes responsible will put a permanent end to hair loss. While scientists have made headway by identifying genes responsible for certain types of hair loss, gene therapy is still very much in the future.

 

Dr Angela Christiano
Founder of the first gene responsible for hair loss, Dr Angela Christiano is involved in an ongoing research program to identify the genes responsible for hair loss. She believes that someday gene therapy will be able to be used to treat hair loss.

Dr Elaine Fuchs
Researchers led by Dr Fuchs at the University of Chicago's Howard Hughes Medical Center, discovered a new approach to treating hair loss by using gene therapy. Scientists were able to successfully transform skin cells into hair follicles in lab mice through the introduction of a so-called messenger molecule containing the protein beta catenin.
