Scientists: a microneedle patch helped mice with alopecia grow hair 20:50

A microneedle patch may help treat alopecia areata, which is hair loss caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking hair follicles. This has been shown by a study published in the journal. Advanced Materials.

In Alopecia Areata, the functioning of immune T cells is impaired. There are drugs that can suppress hair loss, but the drugs completely suppress the immune system and increase the risk of cancer and infection.

In a new study, scientists showed that a microneedle patch could solve the drug delivery problem. It turned out that it is more effective than creams and does not cause stimulation of pain receptors located on the skin.

The patches were tested on mice with autoimmune disease: they received the treatment 10 times over three weeks. Within three weeks of starting treatment, hair growth accelerated.

previously scientist saidthat hair loss can be caused by excess “male” hormones androgens, lack of iron and other nutrients, as well as taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
