I have the answer. It's somewhere between :dunno: and :dunno:
idontwanttobebalding said:OK, This finding is of uber importance regarding the differences between balding and non-balding follicles. My question is this, because male pattern baldness is a progression (the hair becomes thinner, the cycle starts to vary, the hair becomes shorter and shorter...etc..) and at the end of it all, the difference is the progenitor cells. Does this not infer there is a relationship between the decline of the hair follicle and the decline in progenitor cell formation?
I mean, you can't go from some (progenitor cell CD34 and CD200) to none can you?
and if there is a relationship between decline of progenitor cell formation and decline in follicle presentation.....couldn't that be measured? and more to the point.....shouldn't that be measured?
What up? :dunno:
idontwanttobebalding said:Thanks, Jacob! That you would offer to do that, well, I think is awsome!
If anyone else, as well, has occasion to communicate with an "expert"....I would be much obliged! unk:
If the question is off base....just blame it on me.

Jacob said:There are a # of posts here and in other hair loss forums on telomeres. I think a bunch on the graying of hair as well.
