Manchester – Hope for bald heads Researchers at the University of Manchester have discovered a remedy that could stem hair loss in men. The substance, which was originally developed for brittle bones, prolongs the growth phase of hair follicles and promotes the production of new hair, according to the scientists in the specialist magazine “Public Library of Science Biology” (PloS Biology) reported.

The production of keratin, a protein and main component of hair, was also boosted. According to the researchers, WAY-31660 is overall more promising and better tolerated than minoxidil and finasteride, which are already available as drugs for hereditary hair loss. “Next is a clinical one study It tells us whether this remedy and other similar drugs are effective and safe in hair loss patients, “says Hawkshaw.
