The mice had lost all of their fur due to an overproduction of stress hormone and were being treated with a chemical compound called astressin-B. The mice were injected with the astreessin-B and then returned to the cage with normal mice. Three months later the formerly furless mice had just as much fur as the others in the cage with them. The astressin-B had done more than block stress, it had also helped them to regrow their fur.
Excited, the researchers repeated the experiment and found that several small doses of the astressin-B lead to hair regrowth in just a few weeks. And if they gave it to mice that hadn’t lost their fur, they never did go bald, proving the drug would both bring hair back and stop hair loss.
The researchers say it’s possible the drug may only work on people who have lost their hair due to stress, just like the mice, and there is still a lot of work to do before they can recommend it to people to treat baldness. They plan on continuing with more experiments.
So, if you are all stressed out and losing your hair, perhaps in a few years this will be developed into a useable product to bring it all back.
