There is only one way to define a cure... (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

IIRC the human studies on RU reported results similar to oral finasteride. It's decent but not a game-changer. Plenty of people have tried dumping gallons of the stuff on their heads and got side effects but I'm speaking about practical regimens. There is no such thing as a topical with zero systemic sides, it's just a matter of degree.

Bottom line, we have seen what is possible by fighting the androgen damage. Fin, Dut, Spiro, RU, castration, exogenous hormone supplementation, combinations of things . . . it's all been done. If you aren't willing to manipulate your systemic hormone profile to sex-change levels then you cannot regrow major amounts of hair. Period. You can slow down the long term loss and get a couple years of initial rebound improvement.

I am curious, and maybe a bit optimistic, about the JAK inhibitor testing lately. That's one of the only things worth watching in my opinion.

The crucial issue is that it has grown hair on men. They were AA patients rather than AGA. The question is whether the JAK drug effect is far enough downstream in the follicle shut-down process to work for AGA too. The researchers seem to think it might be.

After 15+ years of following MPB I will say this - we never know anything about anything until it has grown big hair on live humans. No amount of "it logically should work because it does XYZ in testing" amounts to jack shiit.

The MPB process is just too complex and not well enough understood. This vicious condition is too clever at getting around every goddamn thing scientists come up with. It's really amazing that a natural process with so many different stages is proving so difficult to interrupt.

No visible regrowth in human testing = no cause for optimism yet.
