ABSTRACT
The article reports on a recent research in Germany and Saudi Arabia, which have identified a gene that is responsible for a rare type of inherited hair loss. The study have shown that the gene that caused the inherited hair loss encodes a receptor that is present on the surface of hair follicle cells. This development is expected to lead to new treatments for many different conditions that lead to thinning hair or baldness.
