i am aware that you have been doing research with Bradford university into the workings of minoxidil. i just want to ask if this research has shined any light on any potential improvements on minoxidil or even a better drug?
The following response is by UK-based physician Dr. Bessam Farjo:
Dr Bessam Farjo
Our research has made a big breakthrough in discovering the precise mechanism of action of minoxidil, as far as its action on hair loss is concerned. We have shown that this is done via the potassium channels in the tissue, which are sort of like on/off switches that help govern various transmission of signals and chemicals. This was previously unknown. The significance of this possibly lies in higher efficiency of minoxidil action, but more likely will result in discovering new drugs that act through these channels that may show better benefits to hair than minoxidil.
