Pfizer and OCI begin Genetic Hair Loss Research

Pfizer along with OCI Pharmaceuticals have also begun to take steps into determining the genetic causes for hair loss… Slowing or even eliminating hair loss, is the newest endeavor. Researchers are in the early lead-seeking stage to develop molecules involved in inhibiting the development of hair loss. New information suggests that men and women who are losing hair retain their ability to grow hair, although the genetic mechanism for producing hair from hair follicles is turned off. We are focused on developing topically applied compounds designed to switch these genes back on, then restoring hair growth.
