I ran into this on another forum, fascinating stuff, especially considering titanium in sunscreens likely gets into the hairline.

From: http://www.hairlossh...=y&STARTPAGE=84

And translate it back into the findings in the Scoliosis study:

Experimental small molecule pharmalogical solutions for AGA by topical/oral route administration in order of descending preference(would be updated from time to time):

Simplified once and for all


All affected genes indicated in the Scoliosis study:

TATA <= Topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists

HNF4 <= Topical Valproic acid or any Androgen receptor inhibitors.

RAR <= Topical Tretinoin in ultra low dose

RXRA <= Topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists.

STAT(STAT3) <= Topical Valproic acid, topical Copper

BATF <= Topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists.

COMP <= Topical Valproic acid, topical/oral Titanium dioxide

VDR <= Topical Calcitirol/Calcipotriol, topical Valproic acid, topical Tretinoin in ultra low dose, topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists.

HDAC2 <= Topical Valproic acid, topical/oral Fullerene C60

CART1 aka ALX1 <= Topical Valproic acid, topical Tretinoin in ultra low dose.

FOXA(this gene is the 1 primarily responsible for activating DKK1 and hence- GSK3B on the balding scalp. It is also the reason why estrogenic molecules inhibit Dkk1) <= Topical Valproic acid.

FOXP1 <= Topical Valproic acid, Topical Tretinoin in ultra low dose, topical Copper, oral/topical Titanium dioxide.

GATA(GATA3) <= Topical Valproic acid, Topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists, oral/topical Titanium dioxide.

H6 family homeobox 2. Ok i havent figure yet whether it's an agonism or antagonoism that will deal with this gene- if it's even related to AGA, that is. Anyway there are a few drugs on the opposing ends of addressing this gene and it is IMO that it has to be done by oral route cos it seems to affect the inner ears more. Agonists: Oral Valproic acid or any oral anticonvulsants. Antagonists: Oral Fullerene C60, Oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists.

IRF(IRF1) <= Topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists.

PAX5 <= Topical Tretinoin in ultra low dose.

P300<== Topical/oral Palmitoylethanolamide or any PPAR Alpha receptor agonists, topical Copper.


It's now easy to see the connection 1)why those genes discovered by Dr Cotsarelis were upregulated/downregulated in haired-scalp when compared to bald scalp- between those genes indicated in the Scoliosis study(Pax1/Foxa2 locus- the primary cause of AGA).

In Summary:

Pax1/Foxa2 AGA/Scoliosis haplotype variants ======> 17 altered genes in total as indicated in the Scoliosis study like RXRA, HDAC2, etc =======> altered the behavior of hundreds of downstream genes in Dr Cotarelis's patent that could be grouped into 2 main profiles:

1)Downregulation of Wnt/B-catenin pro-profileration pathway genes

2)Upregulation of Immunity and anti-profileration pathway genes;

======> AGA

This is like every hair growth study ever posted condensed down into one post....INCREDIBLE!!!

I don't know why this isn't getting more attention. Seems like a gold mine of information.

Is there any information on why some people go bald earlier like 20s? Can't seem to find this info.

great stuff 


is there any alternative to retinoid? I dont use it as it can oxidize sub Q fatty tissues.
