Chinese develop a patch to combat baldness | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of Chinese researchers developed an innovative method to combat androgenic alopecia (AGA), also known as common baldness. According to the researchers, the main causes of AGA are insufficient circulation in the affected area of ​​the scalp and oxidative stress. People with this condition do not have enough blood vessels around the hair follicles to supply the nutrients the hair needs to grow. At the same time, the accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) can trigger the premature death of the cells that make the new hair strands grow. Other research has already shown that nanoparticles containing cerium can mimic enzymes that remove excess ROS and thus reduce oxidative stress. Now, scientists have developed a minimally invasive way to deliver these microdoses of cerium clos...
