Hair loss in mice

A study led by scientists from the EARA members the University of Helsinki, Finland, and the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Germany, has found a possible way to prevent hair loss.

The team used a mouse model to study Rictor – a protein that helps to regulate the growth and energy of cells.

The findings, in Cell Metabolism, show that hair follicle regeneration was delayed in animals lacking Rictor.
