BOSTON (CBS) – Millions of Americans experience hair loss and some turn to pills, injections, and transplant surgeries with varying results, but now scientists are testing a new light-based, wearable device to regrow hair. Researchers say earlier studies have shown that lasers, specifically red light, can stimulate hair follicles.  So scientists have developed a chip the size of a postage stamp containing 900 micro LEDs. When they applied the chip to the shaved backs of mice 15 minutes a day for 20 days, the mice regrew hair faster and longer than mice who weren’t treated or those given injections of a med...

Abstract Given substantial advances in hair regrowth research and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) science, a review of currently used systems and results is informative for physicians using a biologics approach to hair restoration. Overall positive clinical response to the use of PRP in androgenetic and alopecia areata patients is observed. The effects on hair density, count, and thickness were demonstrated through multiple clinical trials. Use as an adjunct to hair transplantation and with other technologies is also described. When compared with traditional oral/topical treatments, the lack of identifiable complicatio...

Abstract Hair loss may not be recognized as a life-threatening disorder. However, it has a great harm on a person's self-respect, mental health, and entirety quality of life. Androgenic alopecia (AGA) is the most common type of hair loss, which affects a great number of both men and women. Alopecia can be treated with various hair loss strategies, including hair transplant, cosmetics and medication. Medical treatment shows the outstanding ability in improving hair growth. Plenty of drugs prevent alopecia by inhibiting the secretion of male hormone. But these medicines exhibit some undesirable side effects. Since h...

In this study, we retrospectively examined the cutaneous manifestations of GVHD in pediatric patients ( ≤18 years old) treated at our institution. Fourteen patients were included in the study. Patients who developed GVHD within 100 days of HCT tended to present with morbilliform or dermatitic eruptions, while those who developed GVHD later developed sclerosis, dyspigmentation, alopecia, pityriasis r ubra-like features, or lichenoid papules and plaques.

CONCLUSIONS: In this review update, studies assessing treatment for proliferative lupus nephritis were not designed to assess death (all causes) or ESKD. MMF may lead to increased complete disease remission compared with IV cyclophosphamide, with an acceptable adverse event profile, although evidence certainty was low and included the possibility of no difference. Calcineurin combined with lower dose MMF may improve induction of disease remission compared with IV cyclophosphamide, but the comparative safety profile of these therapies is uncertain. Azathioprine may increase disease relapse as maintenance therapy compared wi...
