Genetic cause of Male Pattern Baldness

Written by Admin on November 18th, 2008

Recent research projects for male pattern baldness have  focused on locating the specific genes which initiate  baldness in men.  The research shows that it is not just one gene, but a number of interacting genetic triggers which increase the chances of male pattern baldness appearing. The latest research has identified seven gene variation which appear to be linked to male pattern baldness.

Finding the triggers for male pattern baldness allows the research into cures to stop the triggers from activating. It also raises the possibility of testing for male pattern baldness. This will allow you to see at an early age whether you have these genes, therefore letting you know whether you will suffer from baldness in the future.
