Scientists Find Apparent Cure to Baldness -- in Mice
Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(TOKYO) -- Science has apparently made great strides in the war against receding hairlines -- for mice, that is.
Researchers at Tokyo University of Science have managed to reverse hair loss in the rodents by transplanting hair follicles from hirsute mice onto one which was hairless. They found that 74 percent of the follicles on the bald mouse sprouted hair within three weeks.
Despite the promising discovery, scientists say it will take at least 10 years before the treatment can be used on human patients.?
