How reliable is stem cell therapy for bald areas?

How reliable is stem cell therapy for bald areas?

Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out.

Hair loss in front, receding. A few White dying hairs. Best remedy or therapy? Rogaine, minoxidil, natural options?

Hair loss in front, receding. A few White dying hairs. Best remedy or therapy? Rogaine, minoxidil, natural options?

Hair loss: Rogaine is a brand name for minoxidil. The chemical is identical. It seems to stimulate hair growth but as soon as you stop taking it the new hair will fall out. So you would have to take it for 50 years. Other options are hair transplants from the nape of your neck. Look at pictures of your Dad at your age.

Help please! is gene therapy a permanent cure for sickle cell anemia?

Help please! is gene therapy a permanent cure for sickle cell anemia?

In theory yes: As sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease, correction of the gene defect by stem cell transplantation or gene therapy would theoretically correct the genetic defect. Gene therapy is experimental at this time. Stem cell transplantation is more common, but is limited by the availability of suitable tissue matched donors. In either case, correction of the genetic defect will not fix prior strokes. ...Read more
