Scientists at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have discovered that squamous cell skin cancers do not require increased glucose to power their development and growth, contrary to a long-held belief about cancer metabolism. The findings could bring about a better understanding of many cancers’ metabolic […]Continue Reading ...
British scalp cooling expert, PAXMAN is showcasing the latest model of the PAXMAN Scalp Cooling System (PSCS) at Arab Health 2019. The British-developed pioneering treatment prevents Middle Eastern cancer patients from losing their hair and retain a feeling of normality during chemotherapy.

By stirring crosstalk among skin cells that form the roots of hair, researchers report they have regrown hair strands on damaged skin. The findings better explain why hair does not normally grow on wounded skin, and may help in the search for better drugs to restore hair growth, say the study’s authors. Led by researchers […]Continue Reading ...
Nov 6 2018 Hypotrichosis simplex leads to progressive hair loss already in childhood. A team of researchers led by human geneticists at the University Hospital of Bonn has now deciphered a new gene that is responsible for this rare form of hair loss. Changes in the LSS gene lead to impairment of an important enzyme […]Continue Reading ...
A chemical that mimics sandalwood has been found to have the ability to stimulate hair growth among humans finds a new study. This brings hope for people losing hair worldwide.

July 30, 2018 In a series of experiments with mice, Johns Hopkins investigators have used an experimental compound to successfully reverse hair loss, hair whitening and skin inflammation linked by previous studies to human diets heavy in fat and cholesterol. The investigators say the compound halts the production of certain fats called glycosphingolipids, or GSLs, […]Continue Reading ...
July 20, 2018 Wrinkled skin and hair loss are hallmarks of aging. What if they could be reversed? Keshav Singh, Ph.D., and colleagues have done just that, in a mouse model developed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. When a mutation leading to mitochondrial dysfunction is induced, the mouse develops wrinkled skin and extensive, […]Continue Reading ...
MONDAY, Dec. 10, 2018 — In a feat that might help pave the way to restoring hair on patients with skin wounds from burns, injuries or surgery, scientists report regrowing hair on damaged skin in mice. In their experiments with the rodents, the researchers found that activating what’s called the sonic hedgehog cell signaling pathway […]Continue Reading ...

Researchers have taken an important step toward what may become a new approach to restore the hearing loss. In a new study, out today in the European Journal of Neuroscience, scientists have been able to regrow the sensory hair cells found in the cochlea – a part of the inner ear – that converts sound […]Continue Reading ...
Although some people embrace the saying “bald is beautiful,” for others, alopecia, or excessive hair loss, can cause stress and anxiety. Some studies have shown that stimulating the skin with lasers can help regrow hair, but the equipment is often large, consumes lots of energy and is difficult to use in daily life. Now, researchers […]Continue Reading ...
August 18, 2018 Loyola Medicine is offering cancer patients a treatment that reduces the risk of hair loss by cooling the scalp. During chemotherapy sessions, the patient wears a silicone cooling cap. The cap contains a circulating coolant that reduces the temperature of the scalp by a few degrees. Breast cancer patient Jennifer Blattner, of […]Continue Reading ...
July 26, 2018 It is an often case that one’s health and life depend on as quick a disease is found. That is why today the ways of quick and effective revealing of a disease is one of the most important directions in medicine. At present one of the unique SUSU projects in this field […]Continue Reading ...
