Snippet from the article:
Scientists might be able to offer “hair-challenged” males a new glimmer of hope when it comes to reversing baldness.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania say they’ve gotten closer to being able to use stem cells to treat thinning hair — at least in mice.
The researchers said that although using stem cells to regenerate missing or dying hair follicles is considered a potential way to reverse hair loss, it hasn’t been possible to create adequate numbers of hair-follicle-generating stem cells — specifically cells of the epithelium, the name for tissues covering the surface of the body.
But new findings indicate that this may now be achievable.

I’m hopeful this goes somewhere, but it’s important to keep in mind that this is still just research in mice. The article ends with: “Experts also note that studies conducted in animals often fail when tested in humans.”
