Propecia Online Charity Profile

The mechanism and underlying cause of alopecia areta remains unknown, but we do know that it is caused when white blood cells begin to attack the hair follicles in the scalp and/or other parts of the body where there is hair, including the nostrils, eyelids and underarms. Hair follicles under attack shrink in size, causing them to decrease or cease hair production [propecia online]. For some people, hair loss is confined to the scalp, and is characterized by quarter-sized patches of loss. Other people suffer from complete hair loss on the head, or total hair loss on the entire body. Fortunately for the 4 million Americans who suffer from alopecia areta, the hair follicle is not permanently damaged, and always retains the potential to regrow hair. Several alopecia treatment options are available to stimulate the follicles.Male pattern hair loss or androgenetic alopecia is a common but poorly understood disorder. The influence of androgens and the type 2 5[alpha]-reductase enzyme in the pathogenesis of this condition are now well established. (1) 5[alpha]-reductase converts testosterone to the more active DHT, and the type 2 isoform is expressed in androgen-responsive tissues such as the hair follicle. The type 1 isoform of 5[alpha]-reductase is widely expressed in many tissues.Propecia Online (Merck & Co., Inc., Whitehouse Station, NJ) is an inhibitor of type 2 5[alpha]-reductase and is approved as Propecia (1 mg) for the treatment of male pattern hair loss. It is also approved as Proscar (5mg) for benign prostatic hyperplasia. Dutasteride is a potent inhibitor of both isoforms of 5[alpha]-reductase. (2) Avodart (dutasteride 0.5 mg, GlaxoSmithKline, Brentford, Middlesex, UK) is approved for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia. In this phase II trial, the authors investigate the efficacy and safety of dutasteride at different doses in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. They find that dutasteride suppresses DHT and improves clinical hair loss in a dose-dependent fashion. In men 21 to 45 years old over a 24-week period, dutasteride 0.1 or 0.5 mg daily is comparable to finasteride 5 mg daily, and dutasteride 2.5 mg is superior to finasteride. It is unclear if the increased efficacy of dutasteride is a function of more potent type 2 5[alpha]-reductase inhibition or its additional function as an inhibitor of type 1 5[alpha]-reductase [buy propecia online]. It is also unclear how the 2 drugs will compare with long-term use, as the maximal effects of finasteride on hair loss take place after 24 weeks of treatment. Neither drug is capable of completely reversing hair loss.
