We present a case of TTA with unsatisfactory treatment outcome of only increased number and thickness of vellus hair by dermoscopic examination follow-up after the 5-session PRP injection and only transient response for 6 months. Unlike, AGA, the PRP injection might not consequently be a suitable treatment option for TTA. Nonetheless, further studies should be performed to investigate the potential treatment modality for TTA.

This study aimed to characterize the role of BDNF in age-related microglial activation. Initially, we found that degrees of microglial activation were especially evident in the substantia nigra (SN) across different brain regions of aged mice. The levels of BDNF and TrkB in microglia decreased with age and negatively correlated with their activation statuses in mice during aging. Interestingly, aging-related microglial activation could be reversed by chronic, subcutaneous perfusion of BDNF. Peripheral lipopolysaccharide (LPS) injection-induced microglial activation could be reduced by local supplement of BDNF, while shTrkB...

In this study, we constructed H19-overexpressing dermal papilla cells to examine the role of H19 on hair follicle inductivity. Dermal papilla cells infected with lentivirus encoding H19 maintained their cell shape, and continued to display both multiple-layer aggregation and hair follicle-inducing ability upon prolonged culture. H19 exerted these effects through inducing miR-29a to activate Wnt signaling by directly downregulating the expression of Wnt suppressors, including DKK1, Kremen2, and sFRP2, thereby forming a novel regulatory feedback loop between H19 and miR-29a to maintain hair follicle- inducing potential. Thes...

This study compared platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with mitochondrial transplantation for hair restoration and examined the related regulation in naturally aging mice. After dorsal hair removal, 100-week-old mice received weekly unilateral injections of 200 μg of allogeneic mitochondria-labeled 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine with (P-Mito) or without Pep-1 conjugation (Mito) or human PRP with a stamp-type electric injector for 1 month. The contralateral sides were used as corresponding sham controls. Compared with the control and corresponding sham groups, all treatments stimulated hair regrowth, and the effectiveness of P-...

CONCLUSION The results of eyebrow hair transplantation in FFA patients are variable and contentious. The short-term outcome is satisfactory, but in most patients, a progressive loss of transplanted hairs can be expected. Therefore, FFA patients inquiring about eyebrow transplantation should be advised about the high possibility of hair graft loss over time.
