  • Hair loss can be quite problematic for those who experience it.
  • The researchers examined mouse models of hair regeneration and looked at how quickly hair regrew on the subjects treated with 2D cultured DP cells, 3D spheroid-cultured DP cells in a keratin scaffolding, and the hair loss treatment Minoxidil.
  • More specifically, they found that increasing miR-218-5p promoted hair follicle growth, while blocking it caused the follicles to stop working.
