Lowry and Lowe

In 2017, I covered some important groundbreaking hair loss research from UCLA, led by scientists William Lowry and Heather Christofk.

These researchers discovered two topical compounds (RCGD423) and (UK5099) to regrow hair. Both drugs, via different mechanisms, increase the production of lactate. This in turn activates hair follicle stem cells and leads to increased and quicker hair growth. Dr. Lowry’s patent here. Note that RCGD423, activates the JAK-STAT signaling pathway.

Earlier today, reader “PinotQ” posted an important update on progress regarding these compounds’ further development. The compounds and technology have been exclusively licensed by UCLA to Pelage Pharmaceuticals, a startup company founded by Dr. Christofk, Dr. Lowry and Dr. Michael Jung.

Moreover, 100 percent of the shares in Pelage will be purchased by Allergan (Ireland) per an agreement. I have covered pharmaceutical giant Allergan many times on this blog in the past, and they are heavily invested in various new hair growth product technologies.

Rob Lowe has Taken Finasteride for 30 Years. Via his veins?

Actor Rob Lowe has been in the news this week after insulting Prince Williams’ hair loss. Mr. Lowe is 55 years old, and claims that at the first sign of hair loss 30 years ago, he stared taking a hair loss drug. Per the quote below, he took it intravenously via his veins?!

Rob Lowe quote:

“The first glimmer that a single hair of mine was going to fall out, I was having that stuff mainlined into my (expletive) veins. And that’s what I did for the next 30 years.”

Almost everyone thinks that this drug that Rob Lowe took (and is maybe still taking) is Finasteride, usually given in the form of a pill. Donald Trump takes the same drug for his hair loss.

Dutasteride (Avodart) was not available 30 years ago (the younger Ashton Kutcher got lucky). I am not sure if it is a good idea to get Finasteride delivered through your veins, although Mr. Lowe has to this day maintained a very good head of hair and seems healthy.

Prince William Shaves his Head

The global media loves to discuss celebrities and their hair, especially when the said hair is thinning or changing in appearance frequently. Since I first started this blog in 2013, the two celebrities who have probably been most frequently in the news due to their unique hair have been, in order of importance: 1) US President Donald Trump and 2) British Prince William. And this week was huge for both.

Right after I wrote my last post on US president Trump’s officially confirmed use of Finasteride to treat his hair loss, Prince William decided that he had had enough with my US-biased recent coverage. He therefore made a strong statement to upend Mr. Trump’s hair from the global news cycle and very easily succeeded this time around.

The below pictorial representation was the biggest story in the hair loss world yesterday and today. There are thousands of articles you can find about this story by now. The pictures represent a side effect free cure for hair loss that I always recommend above all else for those who are willing to go through with the deed.

It took this prince at least five or more years before going through with the decisive action.
