An Unconventional Take on Trichotillomania
I have absorbed countless articles, posts, and videos about trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling) over the years, and most of them aggravate and concern me.

Evidence behind reports of new baldness cure is a little thin
Conclusion The current study identified a group of cells in the hair follicles of mice which are important both in forming the hair shaft to allow hair growth, and also in maintaining hair colour. So far this research has been in mice, but the basic biology of cells in mammals is very similar, so it seems likely that the findings would also apply to humans. Researchers are also likely to want to perform tests on human cells in the laboratory to confirm their findings. The findings represent an advance in what is known about how hair grows and maintains its colour. However, this doesn't automatically mean the researchers ar...

Modified protein promotes hair growth and fights ageing in mice
Conclusion This mouse study aimed to investigate whether there are ways to target and destroy senescent cells that have stopped dividing yet somehow avoid the normal cell-death pathways. Removing these cells could counteract damage to tissue in the body caused by medical treatments such as chemotherapy, and accelerated or natural ageing. It essentially found that a modified peptide (FOXO4-DRI) was able to cause death of the senescent cells. In turn, this was able to counteract the liver and kidney cell toxicity induced by a chemotherapy drug, in addition to reducing frailty and loss of fur density in the mice. Animal studi...
