Cure for Baldness Within Two Years?

A recent study, from the University of Pennsylvania and published in Science Translational Medicine,’ informs us that scientists have discovered an abnormal quantity of a protein called Prostaglandin D2 present in large quantities in the scalp of bald men. They think that this may be responsible for their baldness.

It is hoped that their research should lead to the creation of new treatments for male pattern baldness within the next two years. Male pattern baldness is present, to one degree or another, in 8 of 10 men under 70 years old.
