The Patterned Baldness Estrogen Metabolism Model

An abstract of a study published in October of 2006 titled “The hair follicle as an estrogen target and source” argues that estrogen also alters hair growth by binding to estrogen receptors (ER’s) and that estrogen alters androgen metabolism (AM) in the follicle. [25]

The study team, expressed their view aptly when the said: “that the time has come to pay estrogen-mediated signaling the full attention it deserves in future endocrinological therapy of common hair growth disorders.”

During the research for this paper, the author found a few references discussing the importance of the ratio between estrogen and androgen in AGA cases.
