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. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. 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. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

KGF and hair growth: Abstract keratinocyte growth factor-2 (kgf-2) is found in dermal papilla fibroblasts and its receptor, fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (fgfr2), in the neighboring outer root sheath of keratinocytes. Administration of recombinant human kgf-2 (rhkgf-2) at 10 ng ml(-1) significantly stimulated human hair-follicle cell proliferation in organ culture (26-35%). Thus, rhkgf-2 is a promising therapeut. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Experimental: Stem cells are being tried in a few inherited conditions but not for trauma or ordinary disease of the retinal like diabetic change. This is finally an active area of research after being killed during the bush years. Hopefully something will come out of it. ...Read more
Experimental: Hi. Stem cell therapy holds tremendous promise that only has a chance of being realized when anti-science ignoramuses (GOP, right wingers) are kept OUT of power. There is no approved stem cell therapy for knee problems, but if you WANT to see stem cell potential, keep idiots OUT of positions of power with your VOTE!!! Stem cells rock, and science has only scratched the surface! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

They are the same.: When someone gets a bone marrow transplant (also called a stem cell transplant) what they are given from their donor are hematopoietic (blood forming) stem cells.
