According to recent research, humans have the genes to produce hair on their bodies as chimps do, but evolution has disabled them. These discoveries may help develop novel strategies for regrowing hair after balding.
Researchers from the University of Utah Health and the University of Pittsburgh said the discovery could result in novel strategies for hair regrowth following balding.
According to The Daily Star, it may also benefit people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy and alopecia in addition to those with hereditary and age-related hair loss.
According to University of Utah Health’s Dr. Nathan Clark, “Some genetic abnormalities may be to blame for hair loss.
“We have used biological variety in a novel way to understand our own DNA.”
To determine how humans differed from our ape relatives, including gorillas, the genetic codes of 62 different animals were analyzed.
Dr Amanda Kowalczyk from the University of Pittsburgh said: “There are a good number of genes we don’t know much about.
An innovative hair loss medication received recognition for its outstanding outcomes last year.
According to studies, almost half of those who used the medicine were able to grow their hair back in as little as six months.
The medication, which must be taken twice daily, is intended to treat alopecia areata.
An autoimmune condition called alopecia areata causes the immune system to wrongly attack the hair follicles, which results in hair loss.
According to a study, 75% of balding men think that their hair loss prevents them from finding real love.
Hopefully, this new pill can also be the medicine for finding true love.
