Scientists from University of California have discovered at last a new cause of baldness which may help develop hair loss treatments. Though it was more of an accident and less of a plan, they discovered T Cells (Tregs) an immune cell which mostly live in our lymph nodes, where they help to control inflammation throughout the body. Through this discovery the researchers found out that apart from controlling inflammation these cells directly trigger stem cells in the skin to promote healthy hair growth. Hair fall is a bugging problem for everyone throughout the world. In India we can see even youth are being affected with hair loss. Many are availing hair transplant surgeries which is the most popular hair fall treatment to treat the problem and regain confidence once again. Yet a lot of research is also being undertaken to treat the problem.

Hair Loss: New Findings
Stem cells help regenerate hair follicles which in turn helps to treat baldness. However stem cells without the immune cell partners cannot regenerate the hair follicles. So these partner cells are essential for the stem cells to be effective. Researchers claim that defects in Tregs could be responsible for alopecia areata. This is a common autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss. It could also potentially play a role in other forms of baldness. This includes male pattern baldness as well. However in partnership with stem cells these immune cells work well to treat hair loss. The reason for this is simple, the same stem cells often help the skin to heal after injury and there is a high possibility that Tregs may play a key role in wound repair as well.
The the opinion of the experts of this study are of that the findings may have implications for alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease which interferes with the regeneration of hair follicles. It therefore causes patients to lose hair in patches from their scalp, eyebrows, faces, body, etc. With this new discovery scientists feel that this could lead to a major breakthrough in the treatment of hair loss occurring owing to Alopecia a very common disease leading to hair fall.
Major studies and research are underway to find the best treatment for hair loss. But the most important thing that can be done is to take care of your hair daily and keep it healthy. You can also seek consultation from Bye Bye Baldy for all your hair fall issues.
