Question 1: You have been saying that aggressives genes will always beat Propecia! Do men only with strong MPB family history have those genes or can men also with no or little MPB family history have those genes?
Question 2: Also you been saying your genetic code will catch up eventually even on Propecia…but don’t all men with MPB have that genetic code? If they didn’t they couldn’t develop MPB!
“Aggressive” genes does not mean there has to be a strong family history. Everybody has a different genetic code and if your have the gene, you will eventually bald to a specific bald pattern, as described by Dr. Norwood in the Norwood Classification. So all men with male pattern baldness (MPB) have their unique genetic code with their unique bald pattern and their unique time frame to get to that pattern. I have discussed the term apoptosis, which implies cell death. Some of the tissues in our body die at specific time frames and in the case of hair, it is believed that some cell which produces some critical part of the growth cycle of the hair dies. This cell death kicks in after a certain number of hair growth cycles and every balding person has a different time frame for that kick-off. We know enough to be dangerous. In other words, things cannot be summarized in a simple fashion with our present state of knowledge.
