Genetic Treatment

All of the processes and reaction taking place in the human body are dictated by every individual's genetic code, assembled in his DNA sequence. A few years ago the Human Genome Mapping Project was successfully completed, and today scientists are working on decoding it. Hopefully, once they find out which individual genes, or groups of genes are responsible for certain conditions, they would be able to design drugs that would prevent those and any illness they may cause. At this point there are a number of genes that are known to have an effect on the hair, but estimates are that Male Pattern Baldness is influenced by many more. For this reason it seems we are still some time away from a genetic based cure to Hair Loss and Male Pattern Baldness.
