A New Compound For A Revolutionary Hair Loss Treatment

Sometimes we are lucky to find something that we are actually not looking for. The same happened with the scientists at the University of California at Los Angeles, who were doing extensive tests and studying the effects of stresses on stomach, but have accidentally stumbled upon a new revolutionary and highly effective compound which can assist in hair regeneration. Hair loss specialists estimated the findings very highly and are hoping for a new promising revolutionary hair loss treatment.

While studying gastrointestinal specifics of how stress affects the stomach and the guts, the scientists have found a new chemical compound which received a name astressin-B, a new anti-stress hormone. This compound was injected to mice which were exposed to stress and as a result lost their hair. To a total surprise of the scientists, after a series of injections it took only three month for the mice to be absolutely undistinguishable from other mice which were not involved in these experiments.

revolutionary hair loss treatmentMillion Mulugeta, one of the leaders of the team, comments on the results as the following: “Our findings show that a short-duration treatment with this compound causes an astounding long-term hair regrowth in chronically stressed mutant mice. This could open new venues to treat hair loss in humans through the modulation of the stress hormone receptors, particularly hair loss related to chronic stress and aging.

Though till now the tests were carried out only in mice, the scientists are quite hopeful and ready to study the effects of astressin-B on humans. In order to support their hopes and excitement about a new revolutionary hair loss treatment on the way, specialists tested the power of minoxidil, another hair loss treatment that most of you already know. This trial resulted in mild hair re-grows in mice, making scientists believe that astressin-B could also be used for hair re-growth in humans very effectively. In addition, further studies are planned to find out how exactly astressin-B acts and what cells in hair follicles are activated to cause such remarkable hair regeneration.
