The underlined part: that is a total hypothetical, the beginning of the title of the "paper" you're quoting from is "A hypothetical pathogenesis model for androgenic alopecia", from a fairly unreputable journal called "Medical Hypotheses". The journal is not really peer-reviewed, this is not a study in any way (he cherry-picks a few studies from other people to spread his hypothesis), and the author has no scientific background.You want to reduce inflammation. I was on low dose TRT (100mg a week) with zero DHT (oral dutasteride and topical dutasteride) and my hair went to hell. That's T for you.
Solution is to use CB0301 as a Topical anti-androgen at 7.5% concentration and reduce scalp DHT to a minimum with Topical Dutasteride and potentially Dutasteride Mesotherapy as well as increase scalp blood flow with oral minoxidil, laser level cap or topical minoxidil. That's all we have right now.
Androgenic alopecia is cause by inflammation. DHT happens to be increased with inflammation along with other androgens.
"Androgen activity can be a response to inflammation, and that tension-mediated inflammation may increase DHT, AR, and TGF-β1 in Androgenetic Alopecia by inducing ROS and other pro-inflammatory biomarkers."
He is a guy, presenting his hypothesis, without having conducted an experiment.
I'm not saying the paper is entirely worthless (just mostly so), but please don't present this as some kind of hard fact or scientific evidence.
And if you actually read his paper, you'll see it's mostly a bunch of bullshit hypotheticals from a guy who cherry-picks (and mis-interprets studies) how he wants to support his personal idea. And of course the author's "conclusion" is that "scalp tension" causes inflammation, which causes more androgenic activity, which causes hair loss. And of course, if you sign up on the author's personal websites, he will sell you the secrets to fighting this!
He also calls himself a "researcher and medical editor" (with no science background whatsoever) and he sells his "hair loss cure" program of course
Give me a break.
