- In The News: Combing through the genome to find the baldness spot. Skipper, Magdalena // Nature Reviews Genetics;Jul2005, Vol. 6 Issue 7, p518
Focuses on a study which discovered a gene that plays a crucial role in male hair loss. Type of receptor gene long thought to be the root cause of balding; Chromosome in which the other genetic determinants for male baldness are likely to be found; European men who are most susceptible to baldness.
- Follicular unit transplantation for male pattern baldness: evaluation of first 250 cases. Ahmad, Muhammad; Ahmad, Nabila // Journal of Pakistan Association of Dermatologists;Apr2011, Vol. 21 Issue 2, p93

- YOUR DIABOLICAL FOLLICLES. CAHDER, CHRIS // Men's Fitness;Feb2013, Vol. 29 Issue 2, p74
The article discusses the prevalence of male pattern baldness (MPB). It states that 70% of men are suffering from MPB or androgenetic alopecia, which occurs when a man has a genetic predisposition to sensitivity to the potent androgenic hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Moreover, it...
- Phototrichogram Analysis of Japanese Female Subjects with Chronic Diffuse Hair Loss. Ueki, Rie; Tsuboi, Ryoji; Inaba, Yutaka; Ogawa, Hideoki // Journal of Investigative Dermatology Symposium Proceedings;Jun2003, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p116
Hair growth patterns of 101 Japanese female subjects with diffuse, chronic hair loss and 58 healthy Japanese female volunteers were categorized into subgroups using noninvasive quantitative methods after determining the key parameters of hair growth. Phototrichogram was performed at 0 and 48 h...
- Hair Loss Among Elderly Men: Etiology and Impact on Perceived Age. Rexbye, Helle; Petersen, Inge; Iachina, Maria; Mortensen, Jakob; McGue, Matt; Vaupel, James W.; Christensen, Kaare // Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences & Medical ;Aug2005, Vol. 60 Issue 8, p1077
Background. Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss in men, but little is known about the etiology of androgenetic alopecia in elderly men and its impact on perceived age. Here we used a population-based twin study of men aged 70+ to assess the magnitude of the genetic...
- Bald facts. Marty, Martin E. // Christian Century;7/13/2004, Vol. 121 Issue 14, p47

- Combing the genome for the root cause of baldness. McLean, W H Irwin // Nature Genetics;Nov2008, Vol. 40 Issue 11, p1270
Two new studies report the results of genome-wide association analysis for androgenetic alopecia. The two major genetic loci identified set the scene for understanding the molecular basis of common male-pattern baldness.
