  2. Move follows recent patent application for topical prescription-grade treatment. DS Healthcare Group, Inc, a leading developer of personal care products, today announced it is preparing to submit to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) for its proprietary topical hair loss treatment. On October 29, 2013 the Company had announced it filed a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the invention. An IND is a request for the FDA's authorization to administer an investigational drug to humans and is the first step towards designing and conducting clinical trials in the U.S. DS Healthcare is currently in late stage discussions with various clinical research organizations (CROs) to design and conduct clinical trials for its breakthrough hair loss treatment. "The highly lucrative prescription market for hair loss treatments currently does not serve the needs of many patients. Regulatory approval, plus our patent-pending technology would expand our leadership position in hair loss therapies," stated DS Healthcare President and CEO Daniel Khesin. Full article
  3. A Propecia Peyronie’s disease lawsuit has been filed against Merck & Co, Inc. by a Madison County, AL husband and wife. The plaintiffs claim thatMerck either knew, or should have known, that hair loss drug Propecia can cause serious side effects when used as intended, including cognitive impairment, sexual dysfunction and depression.

The lawsuit claims that the plaintiff suffered cognitive impairment, as well as severe sexual dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease after taking Propecia to treat male pattern hair loss. The plaintiffs allege that these side effects continued after the use of Propecia was discontinued and that both husband and wife are experiencing ongoing losses including diminished quality of life and a loss of their sexual relationship.

  4. Founder of US Hair Restoration and the Chair of FUE Research Committee, Dr. Parsa Mohebi is conducting a new study to compare FUE vs strip method. The FUE Research Committee of the International Society of Hair Restoration was established to research the differences between the two common methods of hair restoration, FUE and strip method. One of the goals of the FUE Research Committee is to optimize the quality of FUE hair transplantation. The newest multi-center study being conducted by the FUE Research Committee is the FUE vs strip hair transplant study. This one of a kind study will compare results observed from both methods of hair restoration, (follicular unit extraction and strip method) providing evidence as to which method is more successful when comparing hair survival, quality, thickness, and overall hair characteristics. Dr. Parsa Mohebi, chairman of the FUE Research committee states that the goal of this study is to answer many basic questions, “Whether or not doing FUE affects the quality of hair transplants? How the quality of hair compares with traditional methods of strip hair transplant and what are the long term differences between the two methods? Once these questions have been answered we can further study the advanced methods to improve the quality of FUE Transplants.” Full article
  5. Hair loss, thinning and balding is a major concern for men in America that prompts many to seek hair loss treatments. Due to the lack of hair restoration options for the severely bald and a desire to help men with failed prior hair transplant surgeries, Dr. Sanusi Umar of DermHair Clinic created the uGraft technique, also known as the Umar Procedure. Since a full head of thick hair represents youth and vitality in our society, men who experience hair loss can experience negative self-esteem and decreased self-confidence. While many men opt for surgical hair restoration, those with severe hair loss and balding are sometimes problematic cases in terms of traditional hair transplants. Men who are severely bald are typically not candidates for hair transplantation due to lack of traditional donor hair on the head. Others with botched past hair transplants also lack options due to inadequate traditional donor source of hair from the back and sides of the scalp. Some men simply need an additional hair transplant if they got one early in life and then suffered additional extreme hair loss. Full article

  7. A hair-loss medication reportedly tried by Wayne Rooney may cause prolonged and possibly irreversible impotence, scientists have claimed. The recent findings come after one patient bravely stepped forward to reveal the drug left him with no sex drive and even shrank his genitals. Kevin Malley, 30, was prescribed with the drug Propecia after he worried he could be losing his hair. He said he only planned to take the pill for a year. However, just five months after he started taking it in May 2011 he found he was completely impotent and his testes also became smaller. Worried, he consulted his doctor and was told the symptoms would disappear after he stopped taking the drug. But he says a year on and nothing has changed. It will come as no surprise to Dr Michael Irwig from the University of Washington. He recently published a study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, that found the ingredient finasteride, which is found in Propecia, can cause persistent sexual dysfunction, including low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction and problems with orgasms.

  8. Former boy band star mans up about follicular restoration alongside a Brady Bunch alum 'N Sync member Joey Fatone is the new spokesperson for hair restoration company Bosley — yes, one of those places with the "order now" television ads starring famous-ish people. Oh look! There's one of those above! And the boy band alum isn't the only dude in the clip. Therein, worlds collide as The Brady Bunch middle kid Christopher "Peter" Knight also has very enthusiastic things to say about his awesome head of hair. To be fair, it's a pretty brave move for any dude. "Performing in front of a live audience can be pretty intimidating, so having a full head of hair was important to me," said Fatone in a Bosley release, shedding light on the still largely unexplored behind-the-scenes of 'N Sync's salad days. "Back then, I was the only one in the group getting thinner on top and I started wearing hats. It was pretty intimidating. That's life, but the beautiful thing is that now you can do something about it. The answer for me was going to Bosley where lots of celebrities go." Complete article

  10. The effects of gravity may explain the apparently paradoxical effects of testosterone in male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, according to a special topic paper in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The "force of downward pull caused by the gravity on the scalp skin" is the key contributor to the events leading to progressive hair loss in male pattern baldness, writes Dr. Emin Tuncay Ustuner, a plastic surgeon in Ankara, Turkey. He adds, "The new theory's unparalleled ability to explain even the details of the hair loss process and the formation of the pattern in AGA is apparent." "Gravity Theory" Helps Explain DHT's Role in Androgenic Alopecia Dr. Ustuner's theory seeks to reconcile some puzzling observations related to the development and progression of AGA. Balding areas of the scalp show increases in a potent form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), while drugs that block conversion of testosterone to DHT can slow hair loss. Full article
  11. Company's first move into pursuing prescription hair loss treatment market. DS Healthcare Group, Inc, a leading developer of personal care products, today announced it has filed a patent application titled, "Compositions and Methods for Treatment of Hair Loss," with the United Stated Patent and Trademark Office.

"Having already generated millions of dollars providing over-the-counter shampoos and other topical hair growth products, we know this market and we believe our proprietary prescription-grade formulation holds promise for the millions of people looking to preserve their hair growth."

  12. 82% rise in number of females resorting to hair transplant surgery to restore thinning locks. You can spend hundreds on conditioners and treatments - but healthy, beautiful hair is more about what you put into your body than what you slather on your head. Ricardo Vila Nova, resident trichologist at Urban Retreat in Harrods says: “Poor diet can cause hair thinning and hair loss as well as lacklustre hair, dryness and excess sebum. A high-stress lifestyle and bad nutrition can be catalysts for damage which may need four years to recover.” If your hair keeps breaking, eat red meat: “Iron is a top strength booster,” says Vila Nova. It carries the blood’s supply of oxygen around the body keeping hair strong and nourished. Thin and limp hair is the first sign that you aren’t getting enough iron. Full Article
  13. 82% rise in number of females resorting to hair transplant surgery to restore thinning locks. Brought on by stress, hidden health issues - or simply an unwelcome genetic gift from our parents, hair loss is a condition that will affect around two thirds of women in the UK at some point in their lives, reveal statistics. Women have previously suffered with hair loss in silence, but it seems more are now aware of the possible solutions available to them and are opting to invest in a cosmetic procedure to rectify problems. One London clinic claims that not only are male patient numbers rising, but the number of women choosing to undergo hair transplants is on the rise too - with 39 the average age for treatment.

  14. More people are benefiting from hair restoration with a new procedure that combines a hair replacement system with hair transplant. Doctor Parsa Mohebi, medical director of US Hair Restoration, is teaming up with the experts of HRC, a prominent name in the hair replacement industry, to present a combination of a hair transplant procedure and hair system. This procedure will allow people with advanced stages of baldness to achieve a full head of hair. Doctor Mohebi talked about why he introduced this innovative approach to U.S. Hair Restoration, “We have been offering hair restoration to our patients in our Southern California centers for several years. Although we offer life transforming procedures to our patients, we occasionally have patients that don’t have enough donor hair to get a full head of hair through a hair transplant. We recommend these patients get a hair system.” In most cases, patients who have never had a hair transplant before have enough donor hair available to cover their entire head, but certain patients with higher stages of hair loss, classes VI and VII, according to the Norwood Scale, may not have adequate donor hair.

  15. The latest Hollywood hair restoration testimonials presented in the offices of US Hair Restoration have helped remove the stigma associated with hair loss. Procedures like hair restoration are normally done very privately due to the negative stigma that our culture has placed on hair loss and hair restoration procedures. Unfortunately, this causes many hair loss sufferers to lose self-esteem and forces them to experience the hardships associated with baldness while not knowing about the other options that are available. Many hair loss patients allow their hair loss to negatively impact their lives instead of taking advantage of progressive opportunities. Reported effects of hair loss from these individuals include: Detrimental impact on their sex life Affected career choices in men Inability to stay competitive in work place Increased anxiety levels among younger men A higher rate of depression in men with male patterned baldness Full article
